Details of swap:

Make crafted items that are pagan, wiccan, or witchcraft related or something just plain great that your partner can appreciate and enjoy.  Suggestions would include altar or spellcasting items such as candles, bowls, oil blends, etc. - as well as altar cloths, statues, jewelry, decorations, stationary, or more - get creative and look at previous galleries of similar swaps for ideas if you need them!  Be creative! 
Please consider your partner's interests and requests when crafting, and feel free to contact your orgainzer with questions or worries! If you have any doubts about your partners interests, please ask them to make sure they will be receiving something they can use and enjoy.  Communication is vital to a positive swap experience! 

Please be prepared to craft at least 1 large, 1 medium, and 2 small items; or you can increase that if both partners are willing to do more (or if you just want to spoil your partner!). 

Blessed Be!

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

PLEASE PUT WWP SWAP 7 IN ALL PM SUBJECTS

Also please post at least once a week in the thread so everyone knows that we are all still working steadily towards completion of our projects. I will be asking everyone to check in on weekends - simply by posting a note in the thread to let us know you are still working and progressing towards completion of your items.

Feedback will reflect communications with organizers and on the thread so remember this as an important aspect of this swap!

I hope that everyone is happy with thier matches, and I am going to start forwarding the entries as soon as I get this posted so be watching for your partner's info! I am sure you all noticed that I am not participating as a swapper - I do not know when I will be allowed to drive so can not commit to being able to make it to the post office with a package and decided to not risk being unable to fulfill the responsibility of sending on time as not fair to anyone. I will, however, be available to anyone with questions, concerns, or just wanting to chat!

Ronda
Blessings!

i'm very interested the pagan religion and have been thinking about this for some time.  i really don't know too much about it yet. i could craft anything i'm sure but it would have to be hand picked and designed by my partner (so i wouldn't screw anything up) a couple friends of mine are wiccan so i've seen first hand some aspects but other than that i'm a newbie, a lost very interested newbie. my question is would there be anyone willing to do an intro/info package in exchange for a you pick not really a surprise package?

hi 1boy1girl1kitty2!

I want you to know that I work very hard on pairing partners up so that they will be able to work well together and meet each others interests and requests. It makes the rest of the swap go very smoothly if partners are happy with each other from the start!

Make sure to mention your concerns in the questionnaire, and feel free to ask questions of your partner, the group as a whole on the thread, or to PM me with any questions you have as we go through the swap process.

Hopefully with a lot of communication between partners and within the group, you will be able to make a package that will be wonderful and exactly what your partner will want! And also receive items that will make you happy and help you on your way towards learning more about the aspect of the craft you are most interested in pursuing!

In addition - remember that I am very happy to take on new swappers in the swaps I organize, so for all you first time swappers, welcome in advance!

Ronda

very freaky I am working on a deck of cards now also, though I can't draw that good so I am hoping to find someone, possible local to do that aspect for me lol.

curious as to how many spiritualist will also join up.

I don't think I could define myself as only 1 path as many beliefs converge to make up my own personal belief system.

This swap should will be great can't wait for my partner.
