I am sitting here browsing both the box of sunshine and the colour box threads, whilst eating a packet of Skittles and got to thinking.

A box of Sunshine during this miserable weather is fabulous (I live in England and therefore need as much sunshine as I can get) a box full of purple is amazing....but how awesome would it be to receive a boxed rainbow?

I have checked with both LimeRiot and lindyv to ensure I am not treading on toes and been given the go ahead.

As I see it the idea would be that we send 8 items, 7 of which will represent the 7 colours of the rainbow separately (ie one red, one orange, one yellow etc) and the 8th would represent all 7 colours. I thought we could craft a minimum of 4 items, one medium and three smalls and the rest can be shop bought or crafted if you want to craft them. I am however open for suggestions.

I thought it could run through March so it does not clash with either of the current colour swaps.

I am happy to organise though it will be my first time so would be more than happy to have a co organiser =)

I posted this exact thing several months ago because I thought it would be fun but the feedback I got was people didn't want that large of a swap  Sad

I would still be interested in it though if there is more interest now!

Oh sorry I did not check back through posts...
We will wait and see interest then, if we do not get any fancy a private swap?

I like the idea of a rainbow swap more than a single color swap.  If this happens, I'll be interested!

    I would be in for this when it comes up!  I like the idea of minimum crafting 4 items and store-bought the other 4.  It is a big swap but at least you wouldn't have to make all 8 items (unless you wanted to).  It's a great compromise and I'm all for it!

    Awesome more interest =) I am thinking as it is such a large swap of having six weeks crafting time, would that suit people?

    With the crafting time on this  being 6 weeks do people want to stick to the 1 medium 3 small crafted items or either:
    A) 1 big 1 medium and 2 smalls
    B) a  points system
    C ) any suggestions you may have

    Cheers

    This looks like it may be quite popular, and will be the first I have organised is anybody willing/able to co-org?? (I may ask a co-org for advice etc during the swap, one of my main questions would be to get someone to double check my questionnaire, so if you do not have time to co-org but are happy to look that over please let me know that too. =) )
