Details of swap:
What is a dotee?

A dotee is a mini art doll, meant to be traded or swapped. The dolls 6" tall or smaller, but the hanger or tail can exceed that measurement. They have a face, but do not require arms or legs (unless that's part of your design). Dotees have a loop for hanging, and 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, paperclay, yarn, beads, 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.

Just stop fighting it. Sometimes you must give in to your inner nature and let the good times roll! I'm signing up, the crafting time is a nice length and dotees really don't take too much time to create.

Hmmmmmmmmm, I've been in almost all of the dotee swaps. In fact, my first swap ever was a dotee swap.
Need to sleep on it.
