Moomin Swap

We have a gallery!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373155.0

This swap is dedicated to all things Moomin related. Just in case youve checked out this thread thinking Heywhat are those cute hippos in that picture? I should explain that Moomins are a family of Finnish trolls who live in Moominvalley with their friends and have appeared in a number of books, comics, TV animations and films since the 1940's.
If you (or someone you know) would like a bit more Moomin magic in the world then this is the swap for you

Details of swap:
This will be a 4 point swap, and you can decide with your partner how to distribute the points. Any extras should be discussed with your partner first. For anyone new to the point system, the following guide should help
Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less 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
To help prevent flakers I reserve the right to refuse people based on shaky past feedback, and also ask participants to post in the swap thread at least once per week, even if the post just says checking injust to make sure everyone is still around and on track.

I got a set of Moomin cookie cutters for Christmas! I bought myself a set when I was in Finland, but I made Christmas cookies with them a couple years ago and then they disappeared. Sad I'm glad I got a new set, though it isn't the same... I miss my Snufkin cookie cutter!

Haha...no problem  Cheesy I love all of the Moomin artwork (old and new) so much. I've started reading some of the old books to get ready for the swap, and forgot just how magical they are Smiley

Oh, I've got soooooooooooooooo many ideas already! I hope more people sign up, although we could always call it the in-crowd moomin swap  Grin
But if even half of my ideas get carried through to realisation my partner will be in for a treat!
