Hi all!

We know it isn't even Halloween yet, but swap prep needs to start early! :xmas: This year, for maximum turnout, we decided to ask for your ideas. What would you like to see in our Holiday swap?

For the past few years, we've been trying to come up with themes that allow a variety of media, so that we can offer something for both crafters and drawers/painters. Bookmarks and ornaments have been selected for the poll since those have been some of our most popular swaps. But we're open to new and exciting ideas so do share if you have any! It's possible to further divide the swap into categories (see below). 

The poll will run for a week, after which we'll begin to work on the swap details.

Here are some of the previous themes:
2017 Free theme (categories: digital art / free for all)
2016 Cancelled
2015 & 2014 Ornaments (categories: 2D/3D)
2013 Bookmarks
(Before that, we've done different types of traditional and digital art, for example postcards, bookmarks, ATCs...)

Requirements
Please note that we will ask all potential swap participants to provide feedback (trading/selling counts, not only art related feedback) and the names of at least 3 people we can PM for a quick reference check. There's still time to do some quick private trades before the signups begin, or to nudge your previous swap partners in case they've forgotten to leave feedback for you!  ;)

Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

:holiday:

I'd love some sort of fabric-work. A little plush, some ponywear, etc. Maybe that could work with Ornaments, like a felt ornament. Cross stitch/needlework is lovely too, although that may just be me and my silly textile obsession.

Ah I’ve got to build up some feedback somehow, I really want to participate in this! I like the idea of ornaments or a free for all. That way everyone can work in a medium they’re comfortable with :)

The holidays are a great time to build feedback! Even if you dont have enough for the official swaps, private swaps are very popular that time of year, and they are also super fun. When it gets closer, you could always post a thread in Swap Talk requesting a private swap partner.

Second this! But I also took a peek at the Halloween swap brag thread and happened to notice your name, so it looks like you'll soon have enough feedback/references for the Art swap at least! The other official swaps may require more feedback so be sure to check the requirements for each swap before signing up. You're off to a good start! :ohyeah:
