Hate to sound like I'm trying to run the show... but it's just a suggestion.

Should we ask what the last book was that the person finished?

That way they don't get an item from say... A breath of snow and ashes when they have only read Dragonfly in amber.

Just a suggestion, feel free to throw rotten fruit if you want. Tongue

That is an excellent suggestion, I will add it to the questionnaire right now.  This is my first time organizing a swap so if you see anything that I could do better please let me know.  I want to make this the best it can be for anyone who signs up  Grin

My brain is a dearth of crafty activities for these books - I'm waiting to see if inspiration strikes...

Thank you for running with this one...

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I'm on the fence with this one... I usually craft best when inspiration strikes...
What are some of the ideas you've come up with...

Some of the ideas I don't plan on using - a crocheted tam-o-shanter, a tote with either a thistle stencil/theme or strawberries (for Fraiser), thistle stitch markers, and one that I hadn't quite thought out all the way was votive candle holders w/"jewels" aranged in some kind of geometric pattern based on Gellis Duncan's (sp?) obsession w/gems.  I'm planning on starting one of the books this week so I'm sure I'll come up with some more ideas if you want  Grin
