You will send one handmade inappropriate blackout poetry ATC to one partner. How inappropriate is up to your discretion! Or lack thereof. :)

Blackout poetry (or found poetry) is taking text (like from a book page) and obscuring parts or cutting out specific words and phrases so that the words say something new. I recommend googling for examples if you are unfamiliar. This can be really difficult, be sure you give yourself enough time! Lots of wine is mandatory for this process for me. :)

The focus of your ATC needs to be blackout poetry, although other elements, embellishments and decoration are encouraged. Otherwise, any media is allowed. You are not obligated to look at your partner's profile before starting your art, or take their preferences into account. This is senders' choice within the theme.

Send a nicely made ATC. Go to some effort. Stickers should be embellishments at most and NOT the focus of your art. Otherwise, any media is allowed.

I believe no one should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. I will angel if necessary, but I screen participants very carefully to minimize the risk of flakers getting in. I will remove participants with poor ratings, late swaps, drama, nasty comments, or other swapping history that concerns me at my discretion. If you have any negative swapping history and want to participate, please proactively message me to explain. Otherwise, I may ban you with no notice if I am suspicious. And I tend to be suspicious and protective of my swaps. :)

Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name or no last name, you will be asked to fix it.
