Details of swap:


The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make a piece of art, in your style, in your medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it flat(ish), and 4 inches by 6 inches in size. You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  You also have to "check in" with me, the organizer in the week after the sign ups close - this lets me know that you are ready to send. If you do not check in, you will be removed from the swap. And then you will only know their address and proper name. You will then have just under 1 week to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: Janauray 24 to January 31, 2016
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW January 24 to February 7, 2016
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of February 4-6.  Anyone who has not checked in by midnight (EST) on February 6 will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed on  February 7
~ You must ship February 8-12, 2016

Swap Rules:  
~ Please communicate within the thread at least once per week.  
~ No extras please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra!
