It's time for another shrine swap!  You and your partner will swap 3 points worth of shriny goodness.
1 point = small shrine ~ 2.5"x3.5" (63.5mm x 88.9mm) think ATC size or altoid tin
2 points = medum shrine ~ 4"x4" to 7"x7" or something in between - does not have to be square, these are just sample sizes) (101.6mm x 177.8mm)
3 points = large shrine 8" or bigger (203.2mm)

*** the above is just a guideline.  Time and effort can also affect the points/size

There are places you can buy shrine kits - just google 'altered shrine kits' or you can use ordinary objects, altoid tins, tin cans, shadowboxes, wooden boxes, bottles, dolls, etc. Shrines do not have to be square or rectangle.

Make sure to discuss with your partner.  Each person will list at least 5 themes.  Sending extras is always nice but not mandatory and that should also be discussed with your partner!
Make sure to post in the thread at least once a week. If you do not post it will be noted in your feedback.

Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S. Send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. A mailing receipt need to be kept if sending elsewhere.

Why is it that when I'm eager to make stuff, there are no good swaps, then just when I'm about to get busy with other stuff, all the best swaps appear? Just wondering...
