Are you a fan of Penelope Garcia, Derek Morgan, Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, David Rossi, Aaron "Hotch" Hotchner, Kate Callahan, Spencer Reid or Emily Prentiss (not pictured)?
Do you get excited whenever you hear the words "Wheels up in 30"? Then this is the Craft Swap for YOU!
Registrations open on Wednesday 10 June just after the show airs in Australia (AEST) and I anticipate leaving registrations open until June 24th unless we receive maximum numbers sooner.
In this swap we will exchange at least two (2) handmade items. At least one of these items must be a major item such as: a mini quilt, bag, satchel, table runner, embroidered artwork, cross stitch, painted artwork, basket, wall hanging. The other may be a lesser item such as: zippy pouch, needle book, pin cushion, key fob, toy, pillow, clothing accessory, mug rug, placemats, coasters, ornament, bookmark, fridge magnet, notebook cover, hoop art etc. You will also be required to send your partner at least one (1) naughty treat such as chocolate or candy.
You must have a public Instagram account (NO private accounts) and post a mosaic for this swap (you will have until sign ups close on June 24th to post one (or more)). Please use the hashtag #CriminalMindsSwap. If you have not created a mosaic by then you will not be eligible for a space. The mosaic may consist of: preferred colour schemes, fabrics, décor, actor/characters from the show, show quotes, photos of items that you would like to receive, basically ANYTHING that you feel will assist your assigned partner to make you something special and to your tastes. Please email Fiona (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions regarding the mosaic.
All participants agree to check in with their designated swap mama at the designated check in times by the due date/s and to post at least three (3) progress photos on Instagram, tagged to the swap's hashtag #CriminalMindsSwap and their designated group's hashtag (to be advised). These photos can be as detailed or as cryptic as you feel comfortable with.
This swap is based around the main characters of the TV show "Criminal Minds" - the FBI's Behavioural Analysis Unit - and is NOT glorifying any criminal acts or violence. Please do NOT depict any weaponry or acts of violence in your gifts!
The due date for this swap will be NO LATER THAN October 16th 2015.
