Details of swap:

SCIENCE

Anything goes as long as it's science themed! Can be a person, place or thing! Maybe a cosmological constant or a theory or a fictional world where science has gone awry.

This is a monthly swap, but you do NOT have to join in each month's round! Feel free to only join in for themes you love, or to pass on months when you have no spare time.

Read more about the original idea here.

What is a dotee? (by Smmarrt)

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls are generally smaller than 6" with a face, but do not usually have arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, some come with tails (tails are fibers, ribbon, charms or other string-y things that add to the theme of the doll), and can be made from a variety of materials - fabric, felt, canvas, denim, gourds or any other material/media that you can make a doll from. Most dotee makers add buttons, beads, sequins, embroidery, or charms to embellish the doll.

Check out the galleries from previous dotee swaps to get some ideas:

I am googling all kinds of stuff - just read about cmarion3's aunt - Julena Duncombe. What a fascinating history!

I will add folks tonight after looking up my themes.

Well, look at it this way. Science is about experimenting so this would be a good theme to experiment with making a dotee. No arms, no legs, and anything goes. What could be easier? Check out the past swap galleries and see what I mean. Everything from detailed creations to simple, but amazing, creations. We love them all.
