Sadly, these are not all mine.

Stones, rocks, crystals, minerals, fossils… yay!

Are you a stone fanatic? Do you come home from, well, everywhere with a rock or two in your pocket? Do you have to cut short hikes and creekwalks because you can't carry anymore? Will no one help you move anymore because you have "too many effing rocks"? Or has someone ever helped you move (just once, the sucker) and asked "What is this, a box of rocks?" and you had to grin because of course it was?

Well, my friends, I have a solution for you: GET MORE ROCKS! (Oh please, did you think I would tell you to get rid of them?) (Hmmm... on second thought, you should send them to me!  Grin) Clearly the most sensible course of action is to swap stones and stone crafts with your fellow Craftster rockhounds.


Swap name: I Love Rocks!

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Dragonflower

Sign-up date range: 7/8/2011-7/18/2011

Date to send item by: 8/15/2011

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? Yes, I’m going to keep it just within the US because of postage costs, and possibly customs.
 
If so, which country? US

Additional Age requirement? No

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES


Details of swap:
We’ll be sending two crafted items relating to rocks. One crafted item must be time-consuming (in the ‘medium-large’ range), while the second item is something simpler (‘small’). I'm not crazy about the point or size categories, but please make nice things that you would like to receive. Smiley

Some ideas for rock crafts: painted or crocheted stones, display boxes, small bags for storage, shoulder bags or aprons for rock collecting, jewelry made with stone beads or rocks, windchimes, stone mosaics, papercrafts with pictures of stones, etc.

In addition to the crafts, you must send one stone to your partner.

Tell your partner a little about how you collect rocks. Do you use crystals for healing, etc? Do you dig rocks out of the ground and crack them open? Do you purchase polished specimens for display?

Oooh, driftwood and seashells and seaglass- yay! Those could definitely be extras, depending on your partners preferences.

I had some ideas for rock crafting: "Some ideas for rock crafts: painted or crocheted stones, display boxes, small bags for storage, shoulder bags or aprons for rock collecting, jewelry made with stone beads or rocks, windchimes, stone mosaics, papercrafts with pictures of stones, etc." I would also add decorated boxes for rock storage, keychains with stone beads, tshirts proclaiming your geogeekiness...

I hope somebody signs up! Cry
