The reason for the season:

Beltane is the celebration of life, love and fertility. It is the time when the goddess and the god consecrate their love and bring things into bloom. It is the celebration of the Maypole and the May Queen. Common gods and goddesses honored at this time are Roman goddess Flora, the Horned God, or the Lord and Lady (as well as many other personifications). This holiday is a Greater Sabbat and colors/symbols commonly include:

"Traditional symbols used to represent Beltane are the May Pole (the traditional full-size one is about 10 feet tall), May baskets, crossroads, eggs, butterchurns and chalices. Symbolically, many Pagans choose to represent Beltane with fresh flowers all around the ritual area as well as their homes and the cauldron is often totally filled with gorgeous Springtime flowers. Roses, bluebells, marigolds, daisies, primroses, violets and lilac are associated with Beltane

Plants and herbs associated with Beltane are primrose, yellow cowslip, hawthorn, roses, birch trees, rosemary, and lilac. Also included are almond, angelica, ash trees, bluebells, cinquefoil, daisies, frankincense, ivy, marigolds, satyrion root, and woodruff.

Animals associated with Beltane are goats, rabbits, and honey bees. Mythical beasts associated with Beltane include faeries, pegesus, satyrs, and giants"

This will be a 2 point swap minimum. Each participant will create a package that adds up to the minimum equivalent of 2 points according to these guidelines (and you may go above and beyond the minimum):

By Points:
Large=3 points
Medium=2 points
Small= 1 point

By Time
-Large = 4 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = less than 2 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

PM the organizer with this completed questionnaire to join the swap. Remember that good communication, both with your partner and the group, is essential to the success of a swap. So be sure to post regularly to the forum and stay in contact with me and your partner, especially if you're having any sort of trouble during the swap period. When you mail your package, be sure to get a Delivery Confirmation or Tracking number, and PM me and your partner both when you send your package and when you receive your partner's package. If you ship international, keep a copy/take a pic of your receipt to prove you sent. It's a good idea to take photographs of your crafts before you mail them (just in case), and please post photos of the crafts you receive.
