If this is your first gift, please check that you are on the member list. If you are not on there, you need to sign up.
Then send us a note entitled "Send art" and include the following in the body of the message.I agree to make something lovely for the person I have been given, and I won't forget to include the Art ID in the envelope or parcel!
All the requests are assigned once a week (at present, Sundays), so be patient. You will then get a reply with the "profile" of the person you have been assigned, their address and the Art ID which you must include.
You are now free to make your gift! Their profile might give you some clues as to what they would like... or it might not, use your imagination! You are free to use any medium you choose as long as it's something you can send in the mail.
If you want to upload it to your deviantART so we can add it to the group, that's great! If you want to take a picture or a scan now but upload it later when it has been safely received so that they don't come across it by accident that's cool too. We won't add it to the group until it's been registered as received.
Now take it to the post office and send it on its way! Don't forget the Art ID Limits
You can only receive one ID every week (Monday-Sunday). This is to ensure that people dedicate themselves to each gift rather than trying to do too many and not do any of them well.
You can also only have three gifts in progress at any one time. This includes ones which have been mailed but not registered yet. When someone registers a gift as received, you will be able to send more. If you want to check how many gifts you currently have in progress at any time, you can have a look at the member list
