DETAILS OF SWAP:
We've had the "Winged Creatures Swap"  and the "Forest Friends Swap", so to pay homage to our slimy, flippered and mysterious lovelies of the sea, I decided we needed an Ocean Friends Swap!  Choose a creature of the sea, sand, or beach (seagulls would technically qualify if they are really your thing) and have a fellow craftster make you 1 large crafted item using that animal for a theme.  There will be 3 weeks of crafting time, and only 1 sendout, so the idea is that we'd all make 1 really fabulously awesome item.  (obviously sets of more than one thing, like a jewelry set or a set of embroidered dinner napkins would qualify as 1 large item)  Newbies will be partnered up with other newbies, and everyone else will be matched up based on your questionaires.

***This swap is actually sort of a Sea Swap 2.... I just realized!  duh. stupid me for not searching prior swaps better!  Jaami organized the first one, and there is a link to the gallery in the "Inspirational Links" below.

thank you for even considering this!  ^^

i really really want to join this swap...i have like 2 or 3 ideas already!

Go ahead and sign up, and then we can work a couple of extra days crafting time with your partner if you end up needing them still.  3 weeks is a long time, and 2 more days really isn't that much longer.

Yay! I missed the sea creatures swap, this sounds great! I have to look at my swap schedule so I don't get overwhelmed.

Fun and a great idea. I did forest friends and loved it. This should be great!

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.
