In case you missed the last time this swap was tried- the organizer is MIA.  She hasn't been on Craftster and I got no response to my PM.  I know a lot of people really wanted this swap so I wanted to give it a second life.

As I have no access to the previous organizers PM's you will need to sign up again, sorry for the inconvenience.

I'd like know how many items do we have to send?

Post by: licalee on April 11, 2006 08:06:28 PM
I'm in!

I sent info tonight.

This has to be the greatest swap theme ever, in my humble (and biased) opinion. I'm so jazzed for this.

I'd like know how many items do we have to send?

This is a good question, bear with me- this is my first time organizing.  Let's go with the swap average here and say a minimum of three items.  At least one of the items should represent a significant amount of time and store bought items should be kept to a minimum.  Is this okay with everybody?

That suits me just fine! I would prefer more hand made to store bought. I'm super duper excited (still) about this swap, tree swap round 2, take 2!

The number of items sounds good to me.  That's what was suggested in the first organization of round two, I do believe, so it's already what I had in mind.

To anyone sitting on the fence- there's two days left until the fence comes down.  There's plenty of room for more!

I don't know about anyone else but, i am having a lot of fun with this. I just hope all my finished products are worthy. Like radal16 mentioned, the trees are blooming :D.  Perfect for inspiration. Spring is here.  Anyways, I just thought I would post a few photographs of trees I took in the past. For inspiration? They're not my best photos but they're trees.

This is the enormous tree in front of my old highschool. Not the best shot. There are lots of random trees like this all around town. So many have been cut down  >:(


This is a tree in the fall. Note the pretty fall colors all around.


This is me with a perfect little fall leaf in my mouth and trees behind me
 

This one was taken in Florida in the Everglades. Absolutely beautiful. I take little credit and give the rest to these amazing trees and their reflection. 


Tree with strange vines or branches growing up and around it.

mikalalovescupcakes - the pic taken in Florida in the Everglades looks like something out of LOTR
What a great shot!

You've inspired me to take some local pics ;)

Janer: No problem. Thanks for liking them. I'm excited to see what people are creating.

Jane Doe: IT does look like something out of LOTR. It was very surreal. You should definitely post your photos.

Ooh, thanks for posting the pictures!  Great mangrove pictures, I was visiting family in Florida last Thanksgiving and went to a place that looked like that- it was a little tributary off the ocean so the trees weren't as dense but they are definately neat to see in person.  You look cute too!

Funny, I was actually born in Florida and I feel exactly the same way.  Driving across most of Florida you might as well keep your eyes closed cause there's not much to see...

I was too- Fort Myers. But I only lived there until I was about 6. I also have family down there so I visit. Whenever my family used to take road trips I slept the whole time. The highways are very ugly. Though I do remember some great lightning and thunder!

More recent. These two trees are in my front yard.





Can't really get a full shot without road and house getting in the way.

Post by: mikalalovescupcakes on April 28, 2006 12:24:16 PM
I have a really nice front yard. The only bad part is the second tree i took a picture of looses its petals really quickly and leaves a bruised petal mess all over the walk way. I slipped on some last year and had a big bruise. It hurt to sit.


They're not magnolias... I can't remember what either of them are- both names are on the tip of my tongue...I'll post them when i remember...
