Details of swap

Welcome to the third round!  It's been a while!

This swap is open to all those with an appreciation for Herbalism.  Participants may create gifts based on the culinary, medicinal, therapeutic, and/or cosmetic uses of plants, or based on an herbalist’s lifestyle.  There are plenty of paths to choose from when crafting.

There is no point system that must be followed. This will hopefully encourage participants to dedicate their full potential and energy to each gift.  While efforts can be made between partners to avoid a largely unbalanced exchange, it is important to understand and accept that such outcome may occur regardless.

As mentioned previously, there will be a maximum of 20 participants for this round.  This is not meant to exclude others who may be interested in joining but I personally enjoy more intimate groups.  I am willing to remove the limit for future rounds should there be a need.

Take a peak at the previous round (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336361.0).  The gallery link is included at the top of the first post.

If you would like to participate, please complete and submit the following questionnaire to me, dreadlocklove.  Please include “Gathered Roots – An Herbalism Swap Round3” in the subject line.

Smiley I would really love to join this one though we have fairly high postage/quarantine restrictions to where i live, as far as sending plant matter and seeds ! i am wondering if this would be a bit a pain for a partner or if there is someone who would see it as an opportunity to think outside the box and a fun challenge ?

miknessevie:  Nice!  So glad to see a new face interested in the swap.  Do consider submitting your questionnaire.

faeriegirl:  I live in Canada and have teamed up with international swappers when nobody could on a few occasions.  Can soap be mailed to you without issue (I like sending people soap)?  Creating gifts without plant matter and seeds isn't so much of an issue but I'd have to balance out any outrageous shipping fees with a smaller parcel.  There are a few things I have on my wishlist that are small/flat as well.  What kind of things are you looking to receive?  Maybe we'll luck out and find you another Aussie to play with.

THANKYOU Smiley yeah soap is fine as far as i know, as long as its not seedy Smiley i am waiting on some feedback and hopefully there is a swap left for me . . .  problem is tasmania where i live is an island state . . .  our quarantine even from mainland Australia is still very high but i would still love to be involved ! i am sure there are creative ways to get around this

It's been a bit of a rough year. I suppose that's nothing new, but I've sort of cut myself off from things for a bit. Getting back in the swing of things again though! Glad to be back. Smiley
