Details of swap:

This round we are trying something new again! We will be doing a combination swap with options!

first option - send a shrine only (see shrine swaps for more information on this - links to follow)

second option - send a medium sized flat rate box of supplies with at least part being wiccan/pagan related items such as herbs, candles, incense, and things like fabrics that are appropriate for the theme (for international swappers partners will work out equivalent and fair exchanges with me included in final decision making or will swap with others in thier own country where possible - keeping in mind restrictions customs sets on some locations such as AU does not allow plant matter to enter the country and USA would not let me have my brownies from Canada  Embarrassed )

third option - send a shrine and fill the rest of a flat rate box with supplies

I am hoping that we will have equal numbers that will pair up well for each category but if we have someone that wants to do both and someone that wants only a shrine swap and another that wants only a supply swap making the groups uneven there is a chance that someone will be crafting a shrine for one partner and sending supplies to another - but that will most likely be me  Undecided

Be creative and Have fun!

Please consider your partner's interests and requests when crafting, and feel free to contact your organizer with questions or worries! If you have any doubts about your partners interests, please ask them to clarify to make sure they will be receiving something they can use and enjoy.

Communication is vital to a positive swap experience!  

As always, you can increase what you are sending if both partners are willing to do more (or if you just want to spoil your partner!) AND if you are able to send on time - but we must stay on schedule this round in order to get the next round started on time!  

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:


Please post at least once a week in the thread so everyone knows that we are all still working steadily towards completion of our projects. I will be keeping track on my spreadsheets - simply post a note in the thread to let us know you are still working and progressing towards completion of your items!

Feedback will reflect communications with organizers and on the thread so remember this as an important aspect of this swap!

Lack of communication without cause can result in your removal from this swap and/or negative feedback.

If you want to participate, send this questionnaire to RondaS. On this and all subsequent communication with organizers, please put WWP Swap 14 in the subject line:

If applicable, do you want a specific theme for your shrine? Anything in particular you are wanting it for (room in your home, altar item, holiday decore?)

What do you need/want by way of supplies if this is applicable?

Is there anything you do NOT want?

What kind of supplies would you be able to send, if applicable?

Would you be willing to learn about and craft for someone else's traditions that may be different from your own?

Is there anything you wouldn't be willing to craft for because of your beliefs?

Anything else you want to add?


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Partners will be posted both here and in the gallery on Aug 10th.

in case you miss it in the swap info - all packages in mailed within the USA will be required to have a Delivery Confirmation Number (DC#) for tracking, and if going from USA to other countries or shipping in other countries, please provide your customs number or other tracking method where possible OR a copy of the receipt.

thank you all for your interest and I am looking forward to organizing and to seeing all the crafty goodness in the gallery!

Brightest Blessings!
