so we can craft a flower out of anything... ive seen knitted and crocheted flowers... paper oragami flowers... duct tape flowers... embroidered flowers... ribbon flowers... flowers made from soda cans... beaded flowers... sewn flowers... polymer clay flowers... the list goes on and on.  (and i suddenly feel like Bubba from Forrest Gump  Cheesy)

how about a flower swap.  maybe you love making flowers from clay, but you cant crochet a stitch... so swap flowers with someone who can. 

the swap could be set up to where you decide how many flowers you would like to make and recieve, and what kind of flowers you want to make and recieve, and you have that many partners.  so if i want to receive 5 flowers, i send 5 flowers to 5 different people, and five different people send to me so that you can get a variety of different flowers.  I hope i explained that clearly.  but the idea is that you send just the flowers so that the person who recieves can do whatever they want with them (i.e. some people like to make brooches, or hair clips, or sew them to a hat)

I would be glad to organize this if there are enough people interested.

I have Nikki Epstein's Book of Knitted Flowers and am looking for an excuse to make some...it's been awhile.  In winter I adorned a pillow with flowers from the book: 

So I'm definitely interested.  Wink

Id love to make some jewellery flowers - either already made into necklaces and earrings or just beaded flowers.
And some knitted/fabric flowers would be greatr so it sounds a good idea to me (O:

Would love to swap journal ephemera if anyone is doing that
