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 approximately a 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. You will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 1 week after check in period to ship your personal art off!

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: Sept 30-Oct 9, 2016
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW Sept 30-Oct 24th
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of October 18-20.  Anyone who has not checked in by 10 PM (EST) on Oct 20th will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ Addresses will be distributed no later than October 24th.
~ You must ship October 25-27th

Swap Rules:  
~You must post in thread at least once before being accepted into the swap.
~ Please continue to 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 participated in the first 2 rounds and had a blast!
Since I was able to finish crafting for one of my other swaps this weekend, I signed up  Grin
Now I need to start brainstorming and gathering materials for this.
