This wont be till  mid to late August.
 I think the carnivorous plant swap is a great idea. It is very much differnet to this one, as this is open to all differnet things such as animals, insects, flowers etc. plus even though Im open to which mediums are used for this swap, i still like the idea of them looking like the botanical plates/lithographs. So it could still be limited to embroidery, cross stitch, painting, drawing, paper art. I'm not really thinking clay sculpture or needle felting or anything 3D. These would be made to hang on the wall or put in a frame on the desk.
Hope that helps Wink

Ok, thanks.  Yes, that's helpful, and I should be able to time everything perfectly!

See now, you go and say that it makes me want to sculpt it in 3D just to do it that way! Cheesy

I'm going to play devil's advocate because that's how I roll. Wink
Mister Finch's work looks a bit like those early illustrations:

I am not a fan of long crafting times...I think if we made it simple, like maybe one or two really nice pieces, it would be less stressful...

It might attract less people than the botanical since it is very specific...

Have you had a lot of interest? What kind of projects are people interested in?

There's been some interest, not tons.  Is a month a long crafting time?  I get nervous with crafting times of less than 3 weeks. 

I also like small swaps, so I'm glad that we're all on the same page about that.  Would you guys prefer one Med, or one Large item, or perhaps go by points.  Maybe a 3pt swap with at least 1 med or large item?  So basically you would have to craft either one Large, or one Med and one Small. 


Also, I'm so happy that one of my nature magazines just recently had an article about carnivorous plants in Sweden - AWESOME!

Neat!  Gotta love nature magazines!   Grin

Had a giant breakthrough and I'm almost done with my Med-Large item.  I'm trying something new, but old (if that makes sense.)  It's a new technique, but an old medium for me.  Smiley  I hope Acadian Driftwood likes it, as it's going to be hard for me to send it off!  I'm thinking I may even have time for a little teeny-tiny extra.  Teeny-tiny.   Grin

Still here and still crafting!!  Time, running, out!  I'm sure I'll be ok though. Nothing like working under pressure!   Wink

All right folks, I have 2 questions...
1. How does sign-ups at the end of July with a crafting time of 4-5 weeks sound?
and
2. Do you guys think that this swap would be redundant if the Botanical swap also runs during the summer?  I kind of think it would be, and I'm considering postponing, but I was wondering what you guys thought.

What time frame are you thinking of for this?  I'm also interested in the science swap, and I was planning to do a carnivorous plant swap (although I'm thinking it may be redundant with this swap), so I'm thinking about timing.  I can't really handle more than a couple of overlapping swaps at a time.
