Details of swap:
This will be a One Tiny Thing Swap with a winter theme.  That means a physically small item made with large degrees of creativity, artistry, skill, and/or effort.  We are all going to try to cram our love of creating and winter into an area no larger than 4"x4"x4" (maximum, if you can create beautifully smaller than that, go for it!).

The medium for each person's creativity is unlimited - if you want to make jewelry, go for it.  If you want to make a miniature scene in an expresso cup, go for it, knit a teeny tiny snowman, go for it - it can be fabric, fiber, polymer clay, glass, paper, whatever one desires.  Just keep in mind the spirit of the swap - maximum artistry and effort in a small item, and communicate/stalk your partner.

There will be no extras in this swap, it is just for the one item.  The secret phrase is Jack Frost is a nippy little bugger.

A gallery will be posted after send-outs, and while photos are not mandatory, I will expect good communication, which to me means a minimum of communicating when you send and receive as PMs to myself and your partner, and an acknowledgement post about the item received in the gallery.  

If there is no communication about sending by the two week point after the send out date, a temporary negative feedback will be given to the sender.  This can be reversed with evidence of sending (a viable tracking number, or postage receipt, re-sending package, or partner receiving would be examples).


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

You know, I don't think I've ever joined a One Tiny Thing swap. Maybe this is the one. Winter - love it and hate it.

Yes, there are aspects to love and hate... I hate the salt, black ice (ooooh my knee hurts this morning), my dog cutting his paw on ice each winter, feeling like it is eternal night when I work day shifts and not seeing the sun for three or 4 days in a row... snot... snot... snot... everywhere there is snot...

But then you get those perfect sunsets over the snowy horizon... tobaggoning... walking on sunny perfectly still days on the frozen lake... hot cocoa by the roaring fire as the snow softly drops outside... how quiet the world is after a snowfall... a fuzzy black face covered in fresh white snow...

... shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - the secret phrase is a... secret!!!

I know - sometimes I get over eager after the holidays because there is a lull and maybe take on too many things myself.  I also have to remember some of my own personal crafting goals too!
