Details of swap:
I'm sure EVERYONE has, at some point, been put down because of their bodies, no matter what they look like. This is a swap to celebrate all our bodies - fat, skinny, tall, short, freckled, big noses, thin lips - whatever you think deserves a bit more love.
Possible craft ideas include (but certainly aren't limited to!):
T-shirts, bags, buttons, coin purses, jewelry; anything that can be emblazoned with body-positive pictures and messages.
Mirrors whose frames have positive messages on them.
Art that features people of our body type.
Journals made for recording exercise/diet notes, or more likely, recording thoughts and feelings about our bodies.
Mix CDs with songs like Christina Aquilera's "Beautiful", or Sir Mix-A-Lot's "I Like Big Butts."
I'd suggest crafting one "big" item and 2-3 "small" items, but people can talk with their partner and decide if they want to do more or less than that.
