The First Inaugural Book of Shadows Swap!

GALLERY NOW OPEN: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=389417.0

Sorry to keep you all waiting, I'm back from vacation and ready to swap!

NOTE: I may be ending sign-ups before the weekend since this swap is quickly filling up, and it would be nice to add an additional weekend of craft time. So decide quickly!



Swap name: Book of Shadows Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Saturn
Sign-up date range: 8/1/11-8/07/11
Date to send item by: 9/3/11

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): I'm keeping the sign up date short, aiming for under 20 people since I haven't organized in a bit, and I feel a little rusty!

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country? N/A

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
- Is at least 18 years old: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: 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
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES

Details of swap:

For people who do not own a book of shadows, partners could trade one crafted book plus any extras they feel like.

For people who do own a book of shadows: Partners could trade fancy pens, quills, calligraphy stuff, ink wells, rubber stamps, ATC bookmarks, other fancy bookmarks, a fancy bookplate, paper ephemera, BOS inserts or pages, pressed flowers, protective bags,  and anything and everything that can be put in or used to enhance a BOS.

I will make this swap  1 medium, and two smalls--with the ability to do more being between partners.

So for instance, you could make one book, a quill pen, and a fancy book mark. For someone with a book already, you could make a small assortment of single-sided chunky pages, a rubber stamp, and a book plate. Also, small items can be supplies like jars of ink, stamp pads, paper ephemera, etc!

Any extra splurging and spoiling is up to you are your partner!  Grin Grin Grin


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What is your philosophy/religion/branch/cup of tea/etc.?

Any deity/deities/etc. that are special to you?

Are you out of the broom closet? (Do your friends and/or family know you are Pagan/Otherwise Spiritual?)

Is there anything in particular you would want for your book of shadows?

Describe your Book of Shadows, if you have one:

Are you ok with tasteful nudity in art? (Goddess depictions and etc.)

Do you have favorite colors, stones, herbs, etc?

Is there anything you do NOT want?

Would you be willing to learn about and craft for someone else's traditions that may be different from your own?

Is there anything you wouldn't be willing to craft for because of your beliefs?

What kinds of crafts do you do?

Do you have any allergies or aversions to anything? What are they?

What allergens are in your environment?

What are your thoughts on the TV show Charmed?

***Disclaimer in the interest of full disclosure: You are still welcome to join in on the swap if you are not witch/wiccan/pagan/otherwise spiritual, just know that there is a definite spirituality/religious tradition that goes into these books, and a BOS might mean something different to your partner than it does to you, and your partner may not want to craft something from the show Charmed. It's totally cool if you both like the show though--I just don't want someone to think that they're getting paired up with another Charmed fan, and receive a full fledged witch instead and feel uncomfortable.

I have read the disclaimer, and I'm cool with it: Y/N

Anything else you want to add?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

oh oh!  I knew there was a reason that I had waited on sending in a questionnaire for a different swap!  I'm in!

I'll send over my questionnaire shortly.

Here's some ideas from pages in my original book ... I've also seen leather bound BoS's, and books that are more journal like.

I'm in! Sent my questionnaire. Ready to craft!

Really nice pages! I only have the beginnings of books, as in pages copied from my teacher's book as is the tradition of... well, our tradition. But I want something that feels more like it's for myself because I as an individual have my own ways and feelings about things separate from the tradition.

Only if that's cool to do Charmed stuff between you and your partner...but I'm guessing we are going to see many members from the WWP community, so this swap may be dominated by people who want to craft the real deal, and not replicas from the show. I just don't want you to think you're getting paired up with another charmed fan, and receive a full fledged witch instead and feel uncomfortable. Cheesy

*goes to add a disclaimer onto the questionnaire*

I believe most Wiccan/Pagan/or otherwise spiritual individuals consider their book a part of their spiritual path, and perhaps even an account of their life's involvement in the Craft--it's much more than the TV show prop. It's the kind thing many people would run back into a burning building to save, since over time it really becomes an heirloom.

Hope that didn't come off wrong...

Charmed had it's good moments...I would suggest we do a Charmed swap for things related to the show sometime soon. Smiley I think we can all agree that the book from the series looked badass! Grin Come to think of it...even my own book has a triquetra on the cover, lol.

You are still welcome to join in on the swap, just know that there is a definite spirituality/religious tradition that goes into them, and a BOS might mean something different to your partner than it does to you, and your partner may not want to craft something from the show.

I was actually wondering if the Charmed series would come up again in the thread, hehe. I know it was mentioned in the idea thread, so it might cause a little confusion on weather this is a swap for just fans of the show, lol. I may have to make the distinction next round, but I'll balance the two for this round since the show was mentioned in the idea thread. Cheesy

Hi Monnie! Smiley Welcome aboard!

I'm Considering making this swap one that repeats like the WWP swap since working on a BOS is an ongoing process. Maybe not quite as often though, I don't want to take people away from the original WWP swap! Smiley

...and ariaya, your pages & book are gorgeous!  Shocked
