Details of swap:

Make crafted Imbolc 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, jewellery, decorations, stationary, or more - look at previous galleries of similar swaps for ideas if you need them. Talk to your partners for suggestions and ideas.

Crafting for this swap is small since there is little time before the holiday. The minimum requirement is 1 medium or 2 smalls with the freedom to make more if desired by both partners.

About Imbolc:

Imbolc, Brigid's Day, Candlemas, whatever you call it, this Greater Sabbat falls on Feb. 2nd. It falls between the winter solstice and the spring equinox and the holiday is an observation of new beginnings, returning of daylight, purification, new milk, chastity and fire. It is the celebration of new beginnings. See this link for more info: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/imbolcfebruary2/p/Imbolc_History.htm  (Lemme know if I missed anything)

I would plan on customizing it to your recipient's wants, but generally can include things like altar cloths or decorations, candles, stones, holiday-specific decorations (like snowflakes at Yule, etc.) and any other altar goodies people may want. I have included a ritual I created in my Samhain swap.

Stuff like that is appropriate, as well as anything else you care to add.
