Details of swap:

In this swap you will make your partner one Dotee doll in the theme of...

~Personal~

For this month's theme, we will get to know our partners a bit better. In the questionnaire, you will tell your partner a little about yourself, things like your hobbies, skills, passions, jobs, where you live, and if you like, a picture of you. With this information, your partner will create something based on your life. It could be a little mini-you, or one of your pets, or a representation of one of your hobbies (like a paintbrush dotee if you're an artist, a potted plant for a gardener, or a microscope slide for a scientist). Let's celebrate what makes us each unique!

This is a monthly swap, but you do NOT have to join in each month's round! Feel free to only join in for themes you love, or to pass on months when you have no spare time.

Discus future themes and get updates for the next months here.

Shipping: For shipping within the USA - please get a tracking number for your package. Non-US packages - please save your receipt as proof of sending. When you send AND receive, please remember to PM your partner and the organizer, Acadian Driftwood. Posting in the swap thread is not enough!

What is a dotee?

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls 6" tall or smaller, but the hanger or tail can exceed that measurement. They have a face, but do not require arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, and some come with tails (tails are fibers, ribbon, charms or other string-y things that add to the theme of the doll), and can be made from a variety of materials - fabric, felt, paperclay, yarn, beads, gourds or any other material/media that you can make a doll from. Most dotee makers add buttons, beads, sequins, embroidery, or charms to embellish the doll.

A couple notes:

To give folks some space around the holidays, the sendout date for this swap is a week into January, instead of right at the end of the month like it usually is.


Smmarrt and I have been very proud to host this swap every month for a full year, and we're pretty happy about that! But we will both be stepping down from the MDS in 2016, so this might be the last one for a while. If anyone would like to take it over, you have our blessing.

To everyone who participated over the last 11 months, thank you for making this a great swap series! You've created so many amazing things this year, and I've loved seeing it all.

Has it been a whole year? Wow! That's right, because the first dotee I ever received was a tiny, crocheted Holly King from hazelly. Thank you both so much for seeing us through this twelve-month celebration of dotees!

And this is an excellent theme to end the year with, too.
