Details of swap:

la demande gnrale, we are having a round two of the Book of Shadow swap. You can see first round here with it's gallery.

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. You will have 3 weeks to craft, please put your best effort. For most, the BoS is a sacred object that has to contain the best of the best!

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!

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

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?

Do you have a BoS?:

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?

Do you want a specific set of pages? What do you have in mind?

How big is you BoS, if you have one?

Is your BoS personnal or familial?

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?

I was like "Oh, a Book of Shadows swap. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Whatever." But thinking about it a little bit today, and having read Maman's swap instructions, I'm suddenly really excited about this!

In addition to the gallery from Saturn's BOS swap last fall, here's a great example of BOS pages that Icekibby made for me in theSamhain swap.

Oh, while I think of it -- I've been trying to join Pinterest for weeks and weeks, and they absolutely will not acknowledge me. Can someone who's already in the club try to send me an invite? Maybe that'll work. wulf@eol.ca. Thanks!

Okay, I'm in with the Pin! There's a kind of creepy quality to the way it kind of hustles into agreeing to stuff right up front, but I'll clear out all that.
