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: June 10 - June 17, 2016
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW June 10 - June 22, 2016
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of June 17 - 21.  Anyone who has not checked in by 10 PM (PST) on June 21 will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed on  June 22, 2016
~ You must ship June 23 - 29, 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!

I'm going to lurk around this thread, but just checking--- is tracking required when sending, or does it count as a "paper" swap?  (I think one time I got in trouble for just sending in a normal envelope Tongue )

Yes! I don't think I'll have time for the questionaire today, but I'm joining for sure.

Message me for address or facebook info.

If it is a mostly paper piece, you can send without tracking. But you are acknowledging that if the item gets lost, you will resend. However, if it is a mixed media (3-D, crochet, dangly things or sticking-out things or other media) piece, then it is recommended that you send in a bubble envelope with tracking.

I always like this swap but I don't think I am going to have room on my swap card for it this time around.
