Good day to all you Lord of the Rings fans! Wheather you have read all the books 50 times over or just love the movies this swap is for you! I hope you all have as much fun filling out the questionnaire as I had writing it. All the information is listed below plus many, many links to LOTR crafts to help spark your imagination. If you have any questions about this swap, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Details of swap:
Sign ups: February 1st -- February 15th
Send outs: April 30th
Crafting requirements: 1 large, 1 medium and three smalls.
This swap involves creating one large, one medium and three+ small items to send to your swap partner. Youve got until APRIL 30th to complete your items and send them off; please let me know ASAP if you see yourself unable to meet the send date. If youd like to craft more, PM your swap partner after receiving his/her name and yall can work something out.
After sending, please PM me a scanned copy of your receipt, with the location youve sent to circled or highlighted. Delivery confirmation is a good thing to get, just in case, but if its prohibitively expensive (if youre sending overseas it can be), its not necessary.

If you meet any of the following conditions, you should join this swap:
*You forget what color your walls actually are because they have so much LOTR paraphernalia on them that you havent seen them since the Second Age.
*Your bedroom door is decorated to look like the Door of Moria.
*People must Speak Friend to enter.
*You insist that the ability to quote all three movies word for word is not a sign of mental illness.
*If you are caught day dreaming in class/at work (most likely about LOTR), your teacher/boss yells, THERES A HOBBIT ON MY DESK! to get your attention.
*Watching Haldir die is still a psychologically damaging experience.
*Even after seeing it several times, and knowing that hes not really dead, you still cry when you see Aragorn go over the cliff.
*There is no longer any such thing as Vanilla Wafers. They are now known as Lembas.

I'm finishing up the final book right now so maybe I should do this one, while it is fresh in my mind. I'll have to wait a while to think it over. Smiley That's an impressive list of reference links, Lunamione!
