Details of swap:

5 point swap. Samhain (often pronounced Sow-wen) is the pagan holiday that is celebrated October 31st. Often called the Witch's New Year, it is a celebration of magic and the connection between the world we know and the world beyond. It is considered the best Sabbat for divination. Samhain is also the holiday to celebrate the memories of loved ones who have passed beyond the veil before us. It is the time for celebration of the dark aspects and the Crone.

Symbolism of Samhain:
Third Harvest, the Dark Mysteries, Rebirth through Death.
Symbols of Samhain:
Gourds, Apples, Black Cats, Jack-O-Lanterns, Besoms.
Herbs of Samhain:
Mugwort, Allspice, Broom, Catnip, Deadly Nightshade, Mandrake, Oak leaves, Sage and Straw.
Foods of Samhain:
Turnips, Apples, Gourds, Nuts, Mulled Wines, Beef, Pork, Poultry.
Incense of Samhain:
Heliotrope, Mint, Nutmeg.
Colors of Samhain:
Black, Orange, White, Silver, Gold.
Stones of Samhain:
All Black Stones, preferably jet or obsidian.

Make crafted items that are pagan, wiccan, or witchcraft related or something halloween related or just plain great that your partner can appreciate and enjoy. Suggestions would include altar or spell-casting items such as candles, bowls, oil blends, etc. - as well as altar cloths, statues, jewelry, decorations, stationary, or more - look at previous galleries of similar swaps for ideas if you need them!  Be creative!

Please consider your partner's interests and requests when crafting, and feel free to contact your organizer with questions or worries! If you have any doubts about your partners interests, please ask them to clarify to make sure they will be receiving something they can use and enjoy.

This round we will be crafting a Samhain package for our partner that has a 5 point total. You can increase that if both partners are willing to do more (or if you just want to spoil your partner!) AND if you are able to send on time. Please make all effort to send on time!

Point values per size are:
Small-1 point  
Medium-2 points
Large-3 points
Please abide by the general guidelines for size/time invested for deciding point makeup.

Communication is vital to a positive swap experience!

Please post at least once a week in the thread so everyone knows that we are all still working steadily towards completion of our project. Feedback will reflect communications with organizers and on the thread so remember this as an important aspect of this swap!
Lack of communication without cause can result in your removal from this swap and/or negative feedback.

I'm tempted, but still thinking about this one. School starts in two weeks....but...but...it's Samhain! I'll probably decide right before signups close (like usual Wink )

(Oh and spazgirl I haven't forgotten about you...you should have mail soon. Cheesy)
