Lots of interest in this, so time to get it going!

I thought a bit of a mix is called for, hence opening it up to fairy tales, old & new, folklore & those little fae folk themselves - so pretty much anything with a fairy theme goes.

Swap name: Fairytales, Fairies & Folklore swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: sulkycat
Sign-up date range: 16th February - 8th March
Date to send item by: 12th April ( I know quite a few people are a bit bogged down with swaps at the moment so this should give plenty of time)

Limited to a certain number of people? no, welcome one & all

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

All ages allowed - yes

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES (as in yes I am not!)
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month:
- Has posted at least 15 times:
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time:
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps:
- Does not have any negative feedback:

Details of swap: how about what seems to work in most swaps - one large, 2 medium, 3 small - & I think we all pretty much know how much effort goes into our work, so 'large' of course doesn't have to be something physically large, it's the time spent on it.

After all, a tiny intricately beaded or detailed piece could take hours & hours of work... use your judgement people, and if in doubt please shout out!

Paintings, ATCs, sewing, knitting, beading, felting, I think theres enough scope with this theme to cover pretty much anything! (if anyone wants to send me fairycakes.....yumm y)

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

Anything you would love to receive?
Anything you would not want entering your doors!?

Colour preferences - & colours you hate?

Any allergies / special requests? (eg vegan, non smoking household etc)

Any other information / requests?  also feel free to include details of favourite fairy tales etc here! the more info the better - do you love the original, dark tales? or the lighter, more twinkly aspect of fairy? do you have a favourite fairy tale or fairy painting / artist? how about hobgoblins, brownies (no, not the chocolate sort), sirens etc? toadstools & acorn houses?

Please please contact me with any questions, both now & during the swap, it's a lovely theme & I want everyone to enjoy it! Post often, let's make this a really chatty thread.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

I am soooo excited about this swap!  I bought fabric for a quilt for this swap today Smiley  woot.

Do gnomes count as folklore?

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

i am sorry for being a bad, rude swapper. i am sorry to all the partners i flaked on, and all the feelings i hurt. i feel really guilty, my life is messed up right now and i got greedy and selfish. i didnt think about anything but getting nice things. i am so sorry everyone. i'll be leaving now.

Yay! I've just sent my info!

I'm really excited about this swap! I love fairytales! In a display of geeky excitement here is a list of useful websites I've found during my research (yes research, I write faiytale fiction and sometimes get overzealous in my quest for inspiration) But they should be good to get ideas flowing and to help us all out when we get our partners and discover what fairytales they like.

http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/talesindex.html - annotate versions of various fairytales, alternate versions and modern interpretations -awesom resource, my favourite.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairytale - good overview of fairytales and grat links.
http://www.latrobe.edu.au/childlit/scholarship.htm - articles about various fairytales, comparisons of versions, etc
http://www.cabinet-des-fees.com/ -a journal of fairytal fiction. some good links

Hope this helps everyone! Just tell me if I'm being too geeky and I'll stop!

zemolina, would it help if you were matched with someone from your own country so posting should be faster & more reliable?

lovely to see so much interest already, everytime i come online theres another person sending in details, its great!

** i am going to do things i dont usually do in swaps, such as a mini fairy tale book, a fabric atc, a mini painting...  its my second favourite theme ever (my favourites the sea, & i want to do that as a swap soon too) & i intend to have loads of fun with it!
