I am hosting this swap for ArtsyFartsy with permission. I hope many of you will join as I heard that the last swap was alot of fun....

For this swap we’ll be sending a little critter with it’s very own adoption certificate in a little matchbox to our lucky partner for them to adopt! You will be adopting your own little critter for the fall season. ( look out for the winter one at a later date)


Everyone makes and sends just one critter/home/certificate to one partner!

The critter should be little, made of plastic or glass, no larger than 2 inches, and shouldn't cost more than $2. However, due to requests, you're also welcome to make your own critter out of polymer clay if you'd like.

Make the little critter a home from a small matchbox (32ct) for it to travel/live in.

Now, for the fun part... You get to name the little critter & make it a personalized adoption certificate (approx 3x5 inches) to include: It's Name, Birth Date, Gender & Favorite Things.

Example critter is a plastic goldfish...

Name: Josef William, Jr.

Birthday: August 12, 1979

Gender: Male

Favorites: Bubble Gum, Sky Diving & Playing Wii

Bonus... Draw a picture of the little guy on the certificate or take a little photo and glue it on. I would recommend hearts if you can tell extra effort was made, if other goodies were included, or if the matchbox house is especially nice.

OPEN TO NEWBIES AND INTERNATIONAL SWAPPERS *Shipping will be cheap - and then you have the possibility of adopting a critter from overseas!!


1} Newbies - you have to fill out your profile - ask me if you need to know how.

2} If you're not a newbie, you'll need at least a 4.0.

3} You CAN'T request a certain animal - it's a surprise and your lovely partner gets to decide what you get to adopt! :O)

Questions? Just PM me.

Can the critter be made of glass or carved stone instead of plastic?
