I have been obsessed with the idea of faux taxidermy lately - like the cardboard kind http://www.cardboardsafari.com/, or the plush kind https://www.etsy.com/listing/189765648/chocolate-forest-stag-plush-taxidermy?ref=sr_gallery_2&ga_search_query=plush+taxidermy&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery, or the ... pretty much whatever! kind http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=faux%20taxidermy

Any interest ?

Smeddley, I LOVE those "rug"s!!! 

For timing, I hadn't really thought too far about that... Since a few folks noted that they're booked up (and we only have a few of us interested so far), I'd be fine waiting a bit and then getting it going later on.  Maybe opening July 21 or something?  Feedback on this front is most welcome Smiley

I'd be fine with crafting into late August if that's possible. I have a couple swaps right now with send outs later this month and early August. I'd be ok with sign ups late July-first week of Augustish. Send outs would depend on swap requirements I'd think. But that's just my opinion. Cheesy

Time line sounds fine to me. Just to be clear, are fantastical creatures ok too? Like cthulhu, or narwhale, or aliens?

Sign-ups late July/early August would probably work for me too. I would LOVE to do this one!

I did some Pinterest digging... are you thinking stuff like this?

I can't decide if I prefer the more realistic kind of faux taxidermy, or the more artsy craftsy kind....

Ha! That pink pig is scary yet curiously cute...
I would be interested, late July or August sounds good.
I'm finding I love the colorful crochet or knitted ones!

Ehrmegerd, so many amazing faux taxidermy finds!!!   I <3 <3 <3 them all!!  I suppose the "fantastical" vs. "real animal" question could be part of our partner Q's/preferences (maybe, name 5 animals that you'd like to have "taxidermied", and maker's choice can be one of them?).  I'm psyched that there's interest Smiley  I think I'll plan to target signups July 25-Aug 8 & sendouts by Sept 12th.  I haven't hosted a swap yet (I've co-hosted once), so I appreciate your patience as I sort out the details, and if anyone is interested in co-organizing, let me know!   Grin

I've started a Pinterest board inspired by this swap already! I'm loving looking at all the different options. I even found a faux taxidermied sandworm! (From beetlejuice) that I would LOVE to have!!

Cabaute, if no one else volunteers, I'd be open to co-organizing.

Hi swappers!  Sorry for the waffling on this one... I've been out of the swapping scene for a while and then zealously signed up for two swaps , one with multiple partners (I know that's not a lot for most swappers, but it was for me after being out of swapping for so long!), and send-outs were yesterday.  I felt a bit under water and didn't want to add to the pressure with a swap that I was running, since I still have a lot to learn about hosting.  Now that those are done I'm going to get this one posted by the end of the week, and will be sure to leave sign-ups open for a couple of weeks.  Thanks for your patience!!
