(This swap is inspired by a swap posted by @judgedbyabookscover } My swap is a similar yet altered version!

Due to postage costs - this is a USA swap - Feel free to host an international version if you wish!

Using a recycled (or new or handmade) sealable box (Roughly about the size of a school pencil box) - You will be creating an "Art on the Go Go!" Kit for your partner.

You may decorate it or leave it as is - sender's decision - Plastic is difficult to decorate but consider putting some washi on to give it a little personal touch.

This is a profile based swap - Each person participating MUST have a well filled out profile or their partner will not know what type of Art you do and it will make it difficult for them to make a kit tailor fit for you!

In your box you are to include:


Use your partner's profile for inspiration

Here are a few examples of things you may want to include.

Pack of Colored Pencils

Traveler's Notebook type Insert - Moleskine type notebook

Small pallet of water color paints or acrylics

Small water tight container to hold water for water color paints

Paint brushes

Zip lock bags to keep soiled brushes and pallet after use

Mini Canvas for painting

Mini-coloring book or pages

4x6 blank white cardstock to make postcards

Blank notecards with envelopes

Handmade envelopes to send letters in

Postage stamps to send off some postcards/letters

Sketching book

Sketching pencils

Bits of Ephemera


You get the idea....Use your imagination and your partner's profile to be inspired.

Write your partner a note about what Art means to you - Include some inspiring quotes or photos and put them in the box with the other supplies!

Swap with confidence! I will angel if necessary!

So excited about this swap! I would love either a watercolor painting theme or English Paper Piecing theme for my kit. Thanks! :)
