Calling all A Song of Ice and Fire and George RR Martin lovers!   Winter is coming, and (eventually) so is the next installment in the series, A Dance of Dragons.  In the mean time,  lets keep ourselves busy by celebrating our very favorite (and most hated) characters, houses, and lands of Westeros and the East.

We will be sending 1 large item, 1 medium item, and 2 small items
-Feel free to craft other iterations of these amounts, just check with your partner first, and feel free to ask if you have questions
-More is acceptable if both partners agree, but the minimum requirement must be met.

*Everyone is required to either post on the thread or send their assigned organizer and swap partner a PM with a progress report every week after partners are assigned.  Failure to communicate on the thread, or with your partner or the organizer, can get you dropped from the swap with a negative!  I encourage everyone to keep in close contact with your partnerits fun to get to know them, and will make crafting for them all the more enjoyable when you know more about them.

glad to see you guys here

i thought i might start a brainstorming list to help get the creative juices flowing (i'm in the midst of a reread right now, so lots of details are fresh in my head)

jewelry: melisandre's red ruby choker, sansa's hairnet,

various objects: ravens, crows, war horns, dragon eggs, swords, blue roses, wildfire, crowns, dragonglass, statues of the Seven, heart trees/weirwoods with faces, onions, gold, rainbows, the dragonglass candle,

animals: dragons, aurochs, lots of horses, lizard lions, manitcores, direwolves,

that's all i've got for now, hope it'll start sparking some ideas

I can say that I have a lip balm, a soap AND a lotion that are all themed to House Stark (is that too dorky to admit? Ah well Grin).

I play the LCG (living card game for those who have not ascended to the next level of fanboydom...) and those cards would be great for revamping notebooks, book covers, and anything else papery.

I don't want to share too many of my other ideas because I'd like them to be a surprise. Depending on what my partner wants, I have some awesome ideas floating around in the "house-themed" genre.  Smiley
