Details of swap:

Come one, come all to the swap that centers around recycling, being eco-friendly, gardening or hippie interests! Think about crafting things related to upcycling, recycling, conservation, gardening and hippie themes! Examples of objects could be upcycled silverware windchimes, canning jar lanterns, gardening aprons, "green" cleaners, hippie clothing, recipes, reusable shopping bags, or anything within these themes that pleases your partner.


We will be crafting a 5 point swap. Since I couldn't find other info, below is my point system that I made up for this swap only. I don't know if it matches other swaps, but this is what we will be doing.

Any combination of objects will work as long as you craft the 5 point equivalent.

This swap is limited to 24 people, so I will also close signups once we hit 24 if it is earlier than the deadline.


By Points:
Large=3 points
Medium=2 points
Small= 1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

As I consider myself a hippie (but who has very few hippie stuff) I'd love to participate in this swap, but I'll have to see first how much crafting time I have and need for the Bday and Amelie swap. I might be signing up last minute.

Oh, I have to think long and hard about this one too! I had to skip the last Hippie Swap because I was too busy, but I have this great tie-dye kit that I'm dying to use... I just have to find time to sit down and fill out the questionnaire.
