Use your imagination! Make something your partner will want/need/crave, in your preferred art medium (knit, sewn, collage, etc).
As far as supplies are concerned, compile a little kit, no more than $15 value, with something your partner likes to do, or wants to learn.  
Communicate with your partner!
Remember that this is an OWL swap! So let's make owl things!
I am obsessed with owls. Obsessed.

 Smiley  I just finished the I <3 Owls swap, and still have the need to create owly goodness (not to mention some owl stash left....)...I think I will sign up...too late now to fill out questionnaire...wil l do tomorrow......

wonderwoman1976, perhaps you would want to post the previous galleries of the I <3 Owls swap(s) for inspiration?  (I don't know how, or I would do it for you, if you had wanted.)

Would anybody be interested in crocheted, or hand sewn items?HuhHuh

How funny that this started a month after the I <3 Owls swap that I'm just about to send out for Smiley  I love me some owls, but I gotta dial it back on swapping over the summer, I have TONS of personal projects I have been putting on the back burner and can't do that anymore now.  We'll see how it goes and if I make it in...

 Cheesy  Just sent in my questionnaire!  Whoo-hoo!

I look at it this way, TheSapphireMoon...I do love owls...and yes, the other swap is kinda still in progress, but....I don't know about you but I still have "owl stash" left over from that swap! Grin

BTW...if it is at all possible wonderwoman1976...w hen we get paired up....can I get someone who likes the cutesy type owls, not the realistic type ones?  Thanks!
