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(Because the turn around is so quick with this swap, I am NOT going to require the check in this round.)

When partners are assigned, you will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 3 days after check in period to ship your personal art off! You may choose to include your Craftster name on your art when you send. Also, please send pm ONLY to me, BigBangMomma when you SEND your piece. When you RECEIVE your piece, send to me, and your partner(s).

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: July 22 to August 2, 2017
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW through August 2nd, 2017
These are old rules we are not using this round.
~ You are required to check in with the organizer via pm between the dates of Feb. 16 - Feb 20. Anyone who has not checked in will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.

~ Addresses will be distributed no later than August 3, 2017
~ You must ship between August 3 and August 5, 2017.

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!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Sending in my questionnaire now! I can't wait to do another one of these swaps!!!

« Reply #8 on: July 25, 2017 10:43:23 AM »

I signed up for two and I'm looking forward to getting started on these. I hopefully will have some time tonight to work on them.

Lately I've been thinking that I need to make time to craft and create. This would be the perfect creative outlet! I'm going to try and create my art before signing up. If I get it done before sign ups end, I'll be ready to go. If I don't, there's no stress as I haven't signed up Smiley. I already have an idea and have started on a mock up!
