    On the heels of our very successful Spring event (Thanks, Phoegonix!) I will be hosting the Summer 2019 PYO Swap. We have a few sign ups already, and I’ll list them below as I see them. The pertinent rules/dates are as follows:

    Sign ups are open thru June 15th. On June 16th, I will send out emails with everyone’s swap partners. Your finished PYO Should be shipped The first week of September. Please mail as early as Sept 1st and no later than Sept 7th. I know we all have different days we can ship, so that gives 7 full days to play with and should be doable. This gives everyone approximately 11 weeks to order and complete their piece. (I will send out an email on August 18th to ask if your piece is ready and get an idea if anyone will be delayed.)

    Entries need to be emailed to me at summer2019pyoswap@gmail.com and need to include “Summer 2019 PYO Swap” in the subject of the email. No PMs please. I will reply to each email to confirm receipt, as well as updating this thread with our participants Names.

    Emails should include:

    1.Forum name, Full name, and mailing address. Make sure it’s an address that can accept packages, since this is where your swap partner will be sending your piece!

    2. Requests for what you’d like to receive. Part of the fun is getting to paint things you might not paint for yourself, and another part is receiving something painted just for you! Desired color schemes, animal inspiration, and of course, desired sculpts are great information to include. Please take into account that the store is not currently stocked on everything, so please make sure that one or more of your requested sculpts is in stock. No harm in indicating a preference for one that is not – some of us may have some sitting around unpainted, but let’s make sure that every participant will be able to fulfill your request. No muses unless specifically asked for, and if you choose to paint foo pups, please paint two (to make it more even value-wise with the rest of the sculpts).

    3. Whether you will be willing to ship outside the country. This would also be the place to list if you have anything you just absolutely hate to paint – we want everyone to have a good time with the swap after all. All partners will be determined by random drawing – Melody’s recipient will be drawn first so that everyone has an equal chance. After that I will make adjustments as needed to accommodate requests as best I can, but the primary method of selection will be random. I will not be in the drawing for Melody’s recipient.

    Things to remember:

    *You are responsible for buying a blank PYO, painting it, and mailing it by the ship date. In return, you will receive a painted piece.

    *You are probably not painting for the person who is painting for you. This is more of a “secret santa” type exchange.

    *If you do end up shipping out of country, please declare the value of the piece as $10. This will avoid most customs charges.

    *If you’ve never shipped Windstones before – please take note of how the blank you receive is boxed from the company. Windstones are very fragile and must be double boxed. Your safest bet is to reuse the packaging it comes in. If you need any guidance in packing, feel free to email me and I will walk you through it in tiny baby steps because I am an insane worrywort and will hold your hand and pet you, and allay your fears as best I can.

    *Sign the felt pad before you ship your piece! Naming your piece is a nice touch, but not required.

    *To keep in the spirit of the swap, don’t post any pictures of your piece (even in your private gallery) until your recipient has received it. No spoilers!

    *Everyone is welcome! Just do your best; I’ve never heard of a swap participant being disappointed with what they received. We had some first time painters in the last swap, and they did AWESOME so don’t be shy if you’re a newbie!

    *We do this not only to give, but to receive. Please commit to following through on shipping the piece to your recipient. If you must drop out, let me know ASAP so that we can shift recipients.

    Thanks for such a lovely community, and Happy Painting!

    You may need to poke Melody, or ask Susie to do it. Melody said “Sure” in the “Gauging Interest” thread but I don’t know whether she has seen this one.

    Do we know if any of the PYO will be restocked 😬. My person wanted some that were out of stock.
