Hi all.

Finally got myself situated and am back to play on Swap-Bot. It's been almost a year since I swapped!

Thought I would start swapping with something simple and that I like to do, so a Dotee Swap is my choice. If there is enough interest, I will do one once a month for a doll in the theme of the month. For example, in the US, January is usually cold and rainy or freezing and snowy. It is also the month for New Years Day, National Fruit Cake Toss Day, Martin Luther King Day, Inspire Your Heart with Art Day, Spouse's Day, Beer Can Appreciation Day, Fabulous Feast of the Wild Men Day, National Bubble Bath Day.... The list is pretty long.

For the swap, make one dotee for your partner. The theme is January and you choose what you want to make it represent. And, so as not to confuse the receiver, send a note along with the doll letting your partner know the inspiration for the doll.

Easy peasy, I think. But!! I am often wrong. If I missed anything important here, let me know and I will fix it.

Giving a long sign up period since it is the holidays but we will send about mid January so everyone will get their dotee before the month is over.

Any suggestions are gladly accepted.

And as for the icky stuff... I angel all swaps I host. If there is a flaker amongst the group, I will hunt them down and flog them with a dead fish!

Have a happy day!

The list for January IS for 2016 on that site I listed above.

There are so many January holidays I want to craft for! Now to narrow it down . . .

Are there any specific rules for Dotee Dolls? I've never done one before, and I wouldn't want to disappoint my partner by not making it right!

Best best Crystalite, is too search Dotee Dolls on Google or whatever search you use and check out what a dotee is. Basic specifics are must best small stuffed doll with tail and hanger.. Decorate to your hearts content. If it something you would like to receive, then it is good!

Had a second question on Dotee Dolls, so here is a simple explanation:

They have a circular face that can be drawn with markers, embroidered or even painted. They are a stuffed doll and usually have a hanger made out of ribbon or beads, and a beaded tail (Usually no arms or legs) The stuffed doll is embellished with beads, ribbon, sequins, yarn...just about anything, This style of doll is based on the work of a blogger called Dot and has become popular amongst the SwapBot community where many crafters join to swap dotee inspired dolls.
