The fairy swap that is almost finished has been such brilliant fun, with a seriously special group of people (I would call you ladies but not sure you all fit into that category  Grin ) that here I go again - the much requested sea swap!

Ranging from shells, sea creatures, sea weed & beach huts, to mermaids, pirates & sea monsters, with ice cream, fish & chip, & candyfloss thown in to keep you all fed, something for pretty much anyone who loves a day by the sea!

All additional ideas welcome, that's one reason the fairy swap is working so well, people talked to each other all the time.

Nautical but nice- Very, very tempting. I need to have a think about whether I have the time. Lemme have a ponder on it for a few days!

Yes Hello familiar people seems like only yesterday we were talking on the fairy board.... Huh lol

sulkycat.... I have a question....what do hot waffles with jam & cream, candyfloss thown in to keep you all fed, ice cream and  punch & judy have to do with the sea? Or is that just a far stretch?

I have a couple thoughts for swaps after this one. We could do a rock and roll swap, a pop culture swap, a movie swap.... I think those would all be fun because EVERYONE has their own pop culture favs and movie favs.

I know I said signing on now but I gotta think of what I like. I've never been one to be cast into one genre.... I am not sure what to write on the sea swap thing as things I want. Let alone what to write on my profile as well.

 I am thinking that I should aim to get things for Kym's bedroom since her room has a small beachy/ surfer girl, under the ocean/ kinda thing going on in there. Maybe I should show what her room looks like.....
