Details of Swap
In this swap, participants will make and send out one house to each member in their group according to their partner’s themes. Participants will be put into groups of three. This means you will be making two houses. Optional: You may join two groups, where you would be making four houses.

Houses should be measure between 3 to 4 inches wide and no taller than 7 inches . Decorate them front and back with emphasis on embellishment. Please sign the back with your LC name and date. You want everyone to remember that great house you made.

Please use a base material such as paperboard, matboard, wood, layered cardstock, or foam core. Basically, use something that can stand without flopping over in the future so you can have a whole chunky neighborhood.

There is no need to create a stand for your chunky house. Most of us from the Old Site either hang them with clothespins or prop them up against other decorations.

Since this is a papercraft swap, no tracking/delivery confirmation is required, HOWEVER, you will have to remake and resend any packages that fail to reach their destinations. No exceptions.

Please send your house in a small padded envelope or sandwiched between cardboard. Write “DO NOT BEND” in red ink on both sides of your package. We want that chunky house that you spent so much time creating to reach its new home in good shape.

Communication is important.
It is your responsibility to:
-PM all of your partners and the organizer when you have sent–you must send to ALL of your partners at the same time (this seriously helps me with organization).
-PM your partner and organizer when you have received
-post your comments, questions, thoughts, teasers, etc. in this thread
-post photos of your received chunky houses in the gallery within one week and thank your partner

I replied yesterday and now don’t see it. Ghosts are already at work and it’s only September!

I’ve been waiting for this one, love the Halloween chunky houses. I’ve been contemplating turning these into a swag. 10 feet long, 15, 20, longer. I have so many houses.

I may have to do that. Last year I didn’t have the energy to put up my Halloween decorations so all that went up was what I got from swapping. At my old house I knew where everything went. At this house… it’s going to be all new and thus take much longer. I have SO MUCH Halloween decor. I need to go through it all again.

Actually, I put out the majority of my outdoor decor. Lots of Jack o Lanterns. And today I’m going to order stuff from Oriental Trading for the candy cauldron. There was nothing left in it last year and that thing was mounded over with a mixture of toys and candy. Within two hours it was gone. New neighborhood, lots more kids.

I have two questions of the week (to check and make sure you’re looking at the thread, yes, it’s something I’ve always been lax at).

One: Have you added any songs from this year to your Halloween Mix?

Two: Who’s your favorite witch?

Nope, no Halloween songs added.

Favorite witch… There are too many at the top so let’s just go with Sukie Ridgemont from Witches of Eastwick. I identified with her in high school and had a circle of friends that included two other women and a devilish man… I would grow up to marry him though. :grin:

Aww! I like that. I grew up to marry my high school tall, dark, and handsome.

S H O O T!!! - sorry I missed sign ups. I’ll craft along at home. Apologies!

I don’t have any new songs on my playlist. My favorite witch is Winnie Sanderson.

I was thinking you were going to sign up but then I thought maybe you got involved in some other swaps. You can always ask if anyone wants to do a personal swap.

Yay partners!

I haven’t made any new playlists in ages, and I need to fix that. Probably find some new music, too!

Favorite witches are hard-- there are so many good book witches out there, I have no idea who to pick.

Hahaha! This just reminded me of a children’s book I own called Space Witch originally published in 1959. I mean, why not?

Maybe I should have made it your favorite movie witch and your favorite book witch!
