I don't know about you but this long winter has made me want some lovely green woodland in my life! Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, it really doesn't matter what season it is I just want some magic in it! If you are like minded you should definitely join this swap. There's something extra magical about enchanted creatures all ephemeral and hard to catch with the eye. Let's see what we can create to draw them in!

This swap will be for 1 Medium and 1 Small item.

Sign ups will be from  March 5 to March 13  and send outs will be on April 17 so we will have a nice long crafting period.

You can spoil but please communicate this with your partner.
 There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Please remember that it is warming up so if you decide to send foods that are meltable or perishable then stick them in a zip lock bag! We donít want to accidentally ruin the wonderful things youíve made!

 No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, donít sign up.
 If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let us know ASAP.
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post up on the thread at least once a week to let us know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let us know.

A Tracking Number is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Mailing receipt need to be kept if sending elsewhere.
 PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

 Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures if everything you send just in case.


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Last day to sign up is tomorrow! I'll be closing up the swap at about 6pm (Pacific time) so I can get partners out tomorrow night. I was going to wait till Wednesday for sending swap info but it turns out that I'll only be home for about 20 min that day. So earlier it is!

Also, please check to make sure that the partner listed on the swap q I sent out is the same partner that I have listed on the front page! I had a little mix up and sent MY OWN PARTNER the wrong questionnaire!  ::) Luckily, she's forgiven me and we can get to crafting lol.

I have to admit it made me laugh a little. Knowing how it can be organising swap - and receiving at a time I was super busy with work - did make it super easy to forgive ;)

I have too many ideas. This is problematic XD Such a great match <3

My plan (among others) for today is to go into our basement to look at my stash and see what I can source from there and what I might need to go get.

Taken from out pm's it sounds like Andania and I are going a bit overboard. Just perfect for getting into the swapping game again <3

My medium snowballed into a large but in think I may be able to finish it up today if I sit down and make a good effort. I picked up supplies on Thursday so I will be getting started on that this weekend. Things are looking good!

How is everyone else coming along?

I started one craft... have some more ideas beyond that... likely won't make them all, but hopefully what I want to do for  my first project will work out. 

Sometimes big ideas end up being big fails - the execution doesn't always meet up with the end ideal!

I have more ideas than I'll do - but I take that as a good sign ;)

I have started my medium turned large (as agreed on with my partner ^_^) and got the two things I needed to be able to finish it completely. But first I need to replicate the knitted part of it several times more :P

...I just realized I'm not sure how long it's been since I posted.  (Sorry!)  I finished up everything for this swap this morning so I could send it along with the envelope from the Happy Mail swap where I'm also partnered with Bec99. 

I did not make the giant thing I was sort of thinking about, but I did a bunch of others...  :)
