Earth, Air, Water, Fire ~~ i have a stash of things and ideas for all four and would love to swap them. i can craft for this but there is no way i can organize it, i am still unpacking our house and have a small girl to chase around amidst the boxes.
anyone interested in participating and/or organizing?
i missed the last "sacred" type swap, that could be incorporated too.

we would craft and send extras representing the four elements, incorporating our partner's likes. for example:

earth~ semi precious stone jewelry, tree and/or creature images, woven basket of natural grasses.

air~bird images or toy, something with airplanes, clouds, wind chimes, anything musical.

fire~something very red like a scarf, spicy hand blended tea, hot sauce, candles, incense.

water ~ a sea creature amigurumi, beaded fish pendant, decoupaged ocean images on a box or book, painting of water, bath stuff, etc.

i think people would be able to come up with tons of amazing ideas for this and that they'd be so diverse.

AHH! What great ideas! Cheesy I hadn't thought of it that way. Smiley

Not sure when I'd be able to participate. I've kinda taken too much on my swapping plate for life right now, heh...

well until someone volunteers to organize this swap would be on hold anyhow. we could always revisit it later on, even after the holidays when life is dark and grey and cold and grim  Tongue, i can always use an activity and cheering up then! we'll just see how many people are interested in it...

This sounds like a great swap!  Unfortunately, I'm committed to organizing the D&D swap in a month, and it'll be my first time.  If no one steps up before that one is over, though, I may be able to do it!  (Maybe!  Like I said, the other one will be my first time, and it will depend upon how that goes).  I hope this gets off the ground one way or another, though!

I think that this is an awesome idea and I am always looking for swaps where the creative possibilities are endless.  I would be willing to organize but note I would be a newbie at it.  If you all would feel comfortable with a newbie organizer and still want to do this let me know.   Wink
