The swap is now live!! Here it is:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=144358.0



About the definitions of "Celtic" and "Nordic;" I realize those are very loose terms, each used to describe several groups of people united by language similarities.  The Celts and the Norse were quite different, but I think putting them together in a swap is okay, as it will give the swapper more options.  I'm not going to be anal about accuracy  --  Just as long as you know the difference between the Celts of history and the Boston Celtics, and realize that the Hagar the Horrible comic strip doesn't count as Norse art.  Grin

Here are some links to websites that I found.  So read, brainstorm, and share ideas, and maybe we'll all come out of this having learned something!

Sounds fun! I studied Norse myth for a class last spring, and it took over my brain for a couple months. It was intense, and alot of fun. Definately after the holidays. And after holiday back-up is finished, though if it's late it can be even more late. Heh.

yay! sounds great! i love nordic stuff. however, my definition of norse art is somewhat different that wikipedia's... i was thinking more fair isle-y, simple flowers and animals, like what Anthropologie and Free People seem to be into lately? anyone else with me on this mindset?
i'm definitly interested.
