I'm glad I managed to squeeze in before sign ups ended!

Yeah, lol--glad you made it! I ended up with 16 people in just around 3 days--sort of intimidating to think what it could have gotten to if I had let it go until the 7th. I'm a bit rusty at organizing, so I thought a smaller number of people would give me less chances to screw something up, LOL. Cheesy  I'll expand a little next round. There seems to be a demand for it. Sorry to those that didn't make it in time.

Waiting to hear back from someone, then I'm posting match-ups later.

I also have a crazy idea for Samhain that would involve trading small, wrapped, witchy gifts with 3 people. (So everyone would send and receive three small witchy things to open on Samhain) but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, lol.

I wasn't going to do any swaps for a while besides the goddess swap that I'm organizing, but I had to cave for this one.

I like the idea of making this a returning swap. If we do, what about swapping a BOS page along with whatever else? You never know where you'll find something that really speaks to you and expand your BOS at the same time Smiley

I agree! That sounds like a great idea. I had to make this a balance between the real BOS stuff and Charmed due to the original concept on the idea thread. Funny enough, the majority of the people who signed up aren't really fans of the show. So I guess I made the right call in taking this in a slightly different direction.

In other news, we're full! I've closed sign-ups and I'll be assigning partners tonight.

ALSO--I may be ending sign-ups Friday since we are getting such a good response to this swap. This would add a weekend onto crafting time too. Smiley What do you all think?


No issue here .. I'm actually husband less this weekend, so there's more crafting time than usual in it for me Smiley

Haha, awesome. My guy is working this weekend-and since we're planning to get all of the chores out of the way tonight, I'll have a nice, clean, empty, house to work in without worrying about having to procrastinate on house cleaning. Cheesy My dance school is having a closet-clearing bazaar this Saturday too for a couple hours--even better!

I go through this MEGA CLEAN of the house every year and try to finish before Samhain--sometimes I'll even go as far as touching up the paint in certain rooms. I like everything fresh for the turning of the wheel. Smiley

A huge THANK YOU to Saturn for picking up this idea and making it a full fledged swap.    

No problem. Welcome back to swapping. Smiley

I was just saying there were no swaps I wanted to join, I am so in this, gonna do the questionnaire now!~

Hi Monnie! Smiley Welcome aboard!

I'm Considering making this swap one that repeats like the WWP swap since working on a BOS is an ongoing process. Maybe not quite as often though, I don't want to take people away from the original WWP swap! Smiley

...and ariaya, your pages & book are gorgeous!  Shocked

I would love to have a book of shadows Smiley Smiley  I love the show charmed will this be any thing like it  Huh

Only if that's cool to do Charmed stuff between you and your partner...but I'm guessing we are going to see many members from the WWP community, so this swap may be dominated by people who want to craft the real deal, and not replicas from the show. I just don't want you to think you're getting paired up with another charmed fan, and receive a full fledged witch instead and feel uncomfortable. Cheesy

*goes to add a disclaimer onto the questionnaire*

I believe most Wiccan/Pagan/or otherwise spiritual individuals consider their book a part of their spiritual path, and perhaps even an account of their life's involvement in the Craft--it's much more than the TV show prop. It's the kind thing many people would run back into a burning building to save, since over time it really becomes an heirloom.

Hope that didn't come off wrong...

Charmed had it's good moments...I would suggest we do a Charmed swap for things related to the show sometime soon. Smiley I think we can all agree that the book from the series looked badass! Grin Come to think of it...even my own book has a triquetra on the cover, lol.

You are still welcome to join in on the swap, just know that there is a definite spirituality/religious tradition that goes into them, and a BOS might mean something different to your partner than it does to you, and your partner may not want to craft something from the show.

I was actually wondering if the Charmed series would come up again in the thread, hehe. I know it was mentioned in the idea thread, so it might cause a little confusion on weather this is a swap for just fans of the show, lol. I may have to make the distinction next round, but I'll balance the two for this round since the show was mentioned in the idea thread. Cheesy

For people who do not own a book of shadows, partners could trade one crafted book plus any extras they feel like.

I will make this swap  1 medium, and two smalls--with the ability to do more being between partners.

So for instance, you could make one book, a quill pen, and a fancy book mark. For someone with a book already, you could make a small assortment of single-sided chunky pages, a rubber stamp, and a book plate. Also, small items can be supplies like jars of ink, stamp pads, paper ephemera, etc!
