    The Little Art House Swap - Due June 20

    Due date: Monday, June 20th
    Sign up/withdraw: no deadline, just communicate
    Number of art pieces: 4/4
    Number of players: 20-ish


    Join our “neighborhood” as we make wee little art houses!

    Simple Rules to Swap Success:

    1. Open media: hand-drawn or painted, collage, mixed media, etc.. Make them sturdy. Keep them around 2” in size...between 1” and 2.75” in any direction. Inchie, Twinchie or MOO houses themselves are A-OK; as are sizes in between. We’re flexible here, as long as they are small. A bit of embellishing is great, just keep them relatively flat. Nice and thick with finished edges…those are our type of houses!

    2. 4/4 houses: This is about quality, not just quantity. Take your time with this to create pieces you're proud to send in (no rush jobs!) Sign your work with your username on each piece.

    3. Wrap each art house individually (ATC sleeves work well) and pack your pieces safely in a sturdy or bubble envelope, which I will re-use. Something with tracking info preferred. Include a large return address label.

    4. Postage: Please include the same amount of postage in $US dollars that it takes to mail the art to me (stamps, cash, PayPal or Venmo.)

    5. Show and tell: Please upload piccys of your art. That’s one of the best parts! Hostess gifts or extra postage are always appreciated.

    6. Rep and iTrader: A lot of work goes into this art, so please take the time to leave Rep Points (You Rock button) for the people you receive art from, and an iTrader for me. PM for my address (in Costa Mesa.)

    Some tiny-but-mighty examples from the talented Rosecake, Kwailin777 and Helene.

    Nanner - You did say sturdy...I have some little rectangles and squares from Michaels made of thin wood. Of course that makes them rigid. Would they be ok to use?

    Twinchie Houses (2"x2" w/.5" roofs) sound like they will be acceptable, right?
    If so, please sign me up, too.

    Welcome, neighbors! So glad to have you moving in!

    CiCi...thin wood sounds good. Martha...2.5" definitely falls within the range, so start building!

    I started the "foundation" of some little houses. These are going to be cute teeny buggers!

    I wonder if Smidgen is still around. She did some great Little Houses.
