Details of swap:
Grimm's fairy tales are famous all over the world and have appeared in many forms and guises since they were first published in 1812. This swap is for everyone who loves those fairy tale stories written by the brothers grimm. Most of these fairy tales have changed into the disney versions but for this swap we will be crafting for how the stories were originally written, with the darker storylines rather than the cute child friendly versions. At the bottom of this post there will be a link with all the household stories written by the brothers grimm to help you pick your favourites and to learn your parners, incase you don't know the story. Since all the stories are less than 10 pages it shouldn't be an inconvience to look up your partners favourite tales. This will also be a 4 point swap so be creative and have lots of fun with it.

*Because there are so many(about 200) tales written by the brothers grimm I'll just put the link to wikipedia which lists them all. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimm%27s_Fairy_Tales
**You can also read the stories online at http://www.familymanagement.com/literacy/grimms/grimms-toc.html
, just click on the title you want and it will take you to the story, they all seem to work except the last one which tries to take you to a page with ALL the stories written out, which you really don't need anyway. This link also include the few stories that aren't technically concidered fairy tales. Since this is mostly about the brothers grimm rather than general fairy tales its ok to pick one of those stories as your favourite, but also try to include some of the others as well.
There are plenty of crafts you can do with these stories, but if you have any problems coming up with ideas you can always stalk your partners wist for inspiration or even use google to come up with more ideas. Don't forget to look over your partners profile so you can try to get a feel for their style as well.
Also since this is for the original fairytales and NOT the disney ones, please don't craft things with a disney theme...I don't want to t-shirts, etc., with disneys version of snow white...There was talk of another girl organizing a disney fairytale swap so if that's what you're looking for you might see that one sometime soon.
