Details of swap:
This is a refrigerator magnet swap!  All crafting styles are encouraged; your magnets can be fabric, yarn, clay, wood, stone, paper, or anything else you can make into an awesome little decoration!  Personally, I hope to eventually collect a variety of different styles for my magnet collection!

You will send a package of five magnets.  At least three of these magnets must be crafted, but you may purchase up to two.  Magnets that represent your particular location, culture, or activities might be good ones to purchase - something your partner might not otherwise have a chance to get themselves!

There is no strict size restriction, but I think approximately 2in / 5cm square is a good size to aim for if you're not sure.  Just think of what size you'd like on your fridge!

NOTE: I've recently learned that certain areas' post offices will not allow mailing magnets.  I believe the actual guidelines only actually prohibit magnets that are strong enough to interfere with airplane controls, but in my own case, a postal worker showed me a list that clearly just said "No Magnets", so I can't exactly argue with that.  If you find that you're unable to mail magnets, you may mail just the crafted part, with a clear space to attach the magnet on the back (please just make sure it's flat enough to glue the magnet on).

If you want to participate, information to send to both organizers: roler and BigBangMomma

Welcome to the swap, Sarasmile and Ludi! 

I'm super excited; this is my first time modding a swap, but with the generous BigBangMomma's help, I'm sure it'll go great!

Sweetness!  I just found out that a few fridge magnets should be okay for me to send anywhere. So I'm totally in! (Also, the magnets I bought came to me in the mail, so I can't imagine they can't go out in the mail too.)

Aww, thank you!! XD  Yeah, I know it'll probably be a month or so before we start seeing packages arrive, but I'm already excited to see what people come up with!

And welcome to the swap, Belladune and Abbeeroad!
