Disney Wall Art Swap * complete *

The Disney Wall Art Swap will have sign-ups open on Monday Aug. 6, at 10:00 am EST. As the swap fills, new groups will not be made available due to the nature of the swap. For this swap we will be making all of the embellishments for (5) 12 x 12 canvas boards. Each board will have a theme and a color scheme. The 5 themes we are making are: MK, AK, DHS, Epcot, and characters. Each board will have 18 Mickey Heads and 1 word. The words are: Four, Parks, One, World, Disney. I will make the words so that they are all the same font, welded letters, same black sparkly paper etc. for a cohesive look.

Newbies are not able to join this swap because of the massive amount of work for an angel if the obligation signed up for is not fulfilled.

Check-ins
Confirm your groups and send me your contact info by August 12
Check in #1 by Mon. Sept. 10
Check in #2 by - Mon. Oct. 1
Check in #3 by Mon. Oct. 22 ** Last Call for Angels**
Mail by Thursday Nov. 15
Due by Mon. November 19 (so I can sort over Thanksgiving break)

After sign-ups, please pm me your name, DIS name, mailing address, email address and phone number. (I will only use these in an emergency or if you don't check in).

I will pm you with a reminder if you forget to check in. After 48 hours with no response I will pm you or email you. If you are going on vacation or will be out of town, please check in early. If you need an angel, please ask for one as soon as possible.

If you finish early, feel free to mail to me as soon as you are done. I have room to store the boxes.

SWAP REQUIREMENTS:
2 Mickey Heads cut using Cricut Cartridge Mickey and Friends pg. 78 in booklet (yellow icon) NO SHADOW

* Make your shapes 2 inches, NO SHADOW, and embellished at least TWICE. You may use patterned and solid colored cardstock paper. Please be creative and use the colors that you signed for and embellish in a way that represents the word. The color you signed up for should be a main portion of your design. You can use others colors to embellish and go with it though.


Suggestions for embellishments include:
Paper piecing, stickers, stickles/glitter, flock, ink, chalk, brads, charms, flowers, eyelets, ribbon/fiber, sewing, tearing, embossing, stamping, clipart, etc. Because these are not being used in a scrapbook feel free to use non-traditional scrapbook items such as fabric, cork, wood, metal, or chunky items like buttons.

Packaging Instructions
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS THROUGH CAREFULLY. If you are unable to package and label as follows, I respectfully ask that you do not sign up for this swap. Items that are not packaged and labeled properly are an added burden to the hostess; it really slows down the sorting process and increases the chances of you not getting back the pieces you are entitled to.

Everyone needs to lay out 15 bags (quart size will probably be large enough). Label these 15 bags like this:
mycutiepatooties
Traci XXXX
Bag #1-15 (just number your bags)
Write what you made on a note (or print it out) and stick it inside each bag. For example:
AK: green--Tree of Life
MK: gray--castle
DHS: blue--Fantasmic and so on...

Inside your bags put 1 complete set of everything you made. So if you have Tree of Life Mickey heads...and you made 15...now put one into every bag. So at the end there will be only 15 bags total with 1 of each thing you made inside along with a note telling what you made so everyone will quickly know what board each item goes to. Then mail to me.

I'll get them and set up 15 boxes, one for everybody. Then you will each get 1 bag from everybody dropped into your box. So you'll have all 95--a complete set.

Thank you for taking the time to make sure your pieces meet these requirements.

Mailing Instructions
* You may send to me by any method you choose unless you are mailing after November 15th. Then, you must mail Priority with Delivery Confirmation. I recommend Delivery Confirmation for all packages, even before the November 15th date, but it is not required until November 15th.
* I will send back to you using flat rate boxes/envelopes. Please include enough postage in your package for return shipping. Here are the current rates: Envelope-$5.15, Small Box-$5.35. If you want your items shipped to you with DC, please include another $.75, and a filled out slip. I will not mail the items back with delivery confirmation unless you include the $.75.
* And I am not responsible to for postal errors. To minimize on postal errors, please include a return address label -- either a USPS priority mail label that you have addressed, or the little ones you would put on envelope.
* Do not include clik-it/ship-it postage. I will not be able to use it since it is only good on the day it was printed, and from the location it was printed.

I hope to have lots of fun with this swap and I know the finished product will be outstanding!!! Please ask if you have any questions. Color ideas that are park/character specific are listed below in the spreadsheet.
Enjoy!

morgansmom2000 was sweet enough to organize ideas into an easy to use spreadsheet at
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...ycUxZNEE#gid=1
You can search for ideas for your colors by park and character. You are not limited to these ideas if you have something else you want to do. Just no repeats please.

We have 15 who indicated they want to join in. Please check my math, but I think we're good.
Assuming all 15 do sign up...5 boards x 19 pieces per board is 95 total pieces.
We'd need 10 people to make 6 different designs. Gives us 60 pieces.
We'd need 5 people to volunteer to make 7 designs. Gives us 35 pieces.
60 + 35 = 95
Everyone will make 15 mass produced copies of each mickey head they designed. So I'll have a grand total of 1,425 mickey heads to sort and mail back. 1,425 total divided by the 15 swappers gives each person 95 to complete their boards at home.

Completed Photos of The 5 Boards Made In this Swap: I just laid these out on the boards so nothing is glued down nice and straight. I wanted you to have a photo to refer to when putting your boards together at home.
MK Board:


AK Board:


DHS Board:

Ladies, I put the 2 requests in for mommy2mrb. She's on vacation and these were her requests when we were talking only a character board. I'll put her in other spots today at some point. But I had pm'd with her and wanted to honor that I said it was okay early on for her to pick these 2. her DD's favorite character, and Jim's favorite.

I am aware that mommy2mrb doesn't have a spot in DHS, but she has 2 spots in another group. She does have 6 which is what she needs. The sign ups didn't go perfectly with everyone picking one of everything. We had to ask swappers to sign up for more spots and then drop spots because we had a few more unexpected joiners. I gave you her Brown Derby spot...you needed 6. If you prefer something different, let me know.

That sounds good. Lisa and I want to make sure that we will get the stuff to complete all 5 boards. We are a little confused but as my ticker says- i"m having a blonde moment.
Lisa say she is on vacation mode, so all bets are off!

ok so today was the longest day ever. My mom's surgery didn't work out so well- they went in to unclog an artery and couldn't get through the blockage to put the stint in. After feeling like it was a big fail, we tried to be on our way and they discharged her- only to have her collapse in her wheel chair down the hallway- Obviously they admitted her, and have no idea what's wrong.

Needless to say, I just got home and am desperate to get into this swap but lack the comprehension ability since I've been up waaaay longer than I'm used to (was out driving at 5am to get there for the appt).

I was hoping to be in each group- If there's any openings, could I be placed in those groups under any color and I will get back to this in the morning to sign up correctly?

Oh I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! I hope they can figure out what is wrong.
Don't worry about the swap, we will get your spots taken care of and either Traci or I will PM you a list of themes for each spot.

Get some rest, and we can touch base tomorrow!

Thanks Buffy! I am off to pass out for the night and pray the doctors can figure out what is wrong with my mom. Today is definitely in the running for being the scariest day of my life.

Thanks again, will be back tomorrow with a better head
