I would love a swap inspired by the weird and wonderful imagery on BibliOdyssey http://bibliodyssey.blogspot.com/ ; (also recently published in book format, sooo tempted to buy!)

Anybody else interested? Either way, I'd recommend having a look - great source for paper craft, embroidery, jewellry and maybe some really weird stuffies? etc etc

That's one of my favorite sites!  A swap with the images would be fun.  But I wouldn't know where to start in terms of recommending the terms of the swap... everything is a possibility!

Yes, how to arrange it...

I was thinking it may be fun to keep it very open to give room for everybody's creativity - but then make sure that everybody can state likes/dislikes beforehand.

Or maybe everybody could pick five or so favourite 'pages' and their partner could base their crafts on them?

I'd love one of your hand carved stamps by the way, MunLtStmpr!!  Grin

aawwww shucks.  And given that I can't draw to save my life, sites like this one feed my soul!

There are just so many different options with images especially combined with the creativity of crafters.

I think so too, surprised there's not more interest (at least in the site!) For example, I've never done a doll / stuffie and I'm not that interested in them normally, but I think one based on some of the strange creatures here could be fantastic!

Oh, MunLtStmpr, I wouldn't say I was good at drawing, but I'm a firm believer it's something everybody can do with a bit of practice. Have you read "Drawing on the right side of the brain" http://www.drawright.com/ It's really interesting! With your technical skills / patience that you put into those stamps I'm sure you could become really good!

I think I've started that book at least 3 or 4 times.  Sadly, I just can't seem to devote the time and energy to it.

I do agree with you, that with practice, all arts can be learned.  It's still on my "do someday" list.  And I can't imagine trying it without that book.
