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.
There will not a be a check in time, as in previous swaps, but you should craft now and be ready to send when you receive your partner info.

When partners are assigned, you will only know their address and proper name. You will have approximately 3 days after receiving addresses 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, Smmarrt 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: January 3 - 13, 2018
~ Crafting period: Starts NOW through January 15


~ Addresses will be distributed no later than January 14, 2018 (Monday Jan 15 is a holiday in the USA in most states so some of you may be able to send on January 15, 2018.)
~ You must ship between January 16 to January 20, 2018.

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!
