Details of swap:
The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make ONE piece of art, in your style,  in any medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it relatively flat, and 4 inches by 6 inches big.   You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address Time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  And then you will only know their Address and proper name.  The organizer will do their best to match up partners but do remember that this is essentially a "surprise" swap and no information other than a real name and address will be sent out to you.

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: May 10th - May 22nd
~ Check-in via private message (pm) to the organizer once between May 22nd and May 29th  (by 6:00pm CST)
~ Addresses will be distributed on May 30th
~ You must ship by Tuesday, June 6th

Swap Rules:
~ Please post in the thread after signing up so we know you are still crafting and thinking about this swap.  Updates and reminders will only be posted in the thread so keep an eye out for the Organizer note headline.

~ You are required to check in to your group leader via pm (private message) between the dates of May 22-29 ONLY.  Anyone who has not checked by 6:00PM (CST) on May 29th will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
 
~ DC# confirmation is required for all senders in the USA.  Add some packing to a bubble envelope to meet the 3/4" thick requirement when shipping.  If you are sending art on a piece of paper, please ship with a piece of heavy cardboard so your masterpiece arrives intact!

~ No extra's 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. This includes sending more than one art piece. Only send ONE art piece to your partner.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer(s): LeapFeetFirst

If I can get a piece made by the sign up end I'll join, I love this swap but I am swamped. Swap, swamp. Funny how those two are so close and also so far apart :/.
