 loved these books as a kid, and now that spring is here, i find myself dreaming of forest creatures. so i was thinking, how about a swap inspired by the beatrix potter books?  there's a ton of ways i can think of to craft the adorable creatures from her books.

would anyone be interested? i can organize, but i wouldn't start sign ups for a couple weeks probably.

I loved these books as a kid. When I would visit my Grandma and Nana (great gramms) we would read these to them. My Nana was legally blind so she couldn't read to us, but I remember her listening to us read aloud and being so proud.

I would love to do a swap based on this, but I've just joined. =( I've been lurking forever and just signed up about a week ago.

I would definitely join this swap! I loved beatrix potter stuff as a kid.  My mom started me with collecting the figurines and reading the stories and it grew into me having so much beatrix potter stuff.  I've finally gotten to a point when I don't buy everything and anything peter rabbit.  I don't  have kids yet but when I do that child is getting peter rabbit/beatrix potter themed everything!  And the best part is I already have so much stuff.

if you want to, please go for it! im just too busy with work in the month of may to be a responsible organizer. though of course i would find time to craft for it  Smiley  what size swap do you think would be best? i was thinking smaller since it might be a harder theme to craft say a 5 or 6 point swap with???
