I dont know about all of you but I love making shrines... anyone interested in a shrine swap?

Maybe decide on a size and then partners discuss on any extras?

Have the sign up survey include questions on what kind of shrine the person would like, favorite colors, favorite "whimsies" (like buttons, keys, charms, coins, comics, etc.) and favorite kinds of images, etc. Like a dragon shrine or a Harry Potter shrine or a wiccan shrine or a twilight shrine...

idk I'm almost done with my first swap and looking for an organizer to step up and offer their leadership and help me find those interested? I think this could be fun!  Grin Grin Grin

I've been admiring all of the gorgeous shrines on here, but I don't know if I could make something up to par with most of them! It is an amazing idea, though.

sounds like fun-as for a size, can we keep it small to medium?

oh definitely. I would think a smallish shrine (if anything to keep shipping cost down, and boost popularity) and an extra or two would be great for this, plus if partners want to go bigger they can.

I do think that I won't be ready for this swap for a little while... I'm in 4 swaps! I couldn't resist. So I have 2 with sendouts in early august, 1 in mid august, and one at the end of august! August is going to be nuts for me!

Ooo, we should do it in September... I've been looking around and I think I may be able to do something not too terribly complicated! And an octopus shrine would be awesome

It's my first time at NIU! I'm going to work on an MFA in Costume Design. It's scary starting at a new school, but I think NIU will be fun Smiley

Oh that's so cool! I'm a fibers BFA.

NIU is fun, but they're also pretty weird about some stuff. But the campus is pretty sweet. Let me know if you need anything! Cheesy

Is this swap still gonna happen?  I would be very interested, especially if it stays in the small-med range.
