Details of swap

Welcome to the fourth round!  It's been a while!

This swap is open to all those with an appreciation for Herbalism.  Participants may create gifts based on the culinary, medicinal, therapeutic, and/or cosmetic uses of plants, or based on an herbalist’s lifestyle.  There are plenty of paths to choose from when crafting.

There is no point system that must be followed. This will hopefully encourage participants to dedicate their full potential and energy to each gift.  While efforts can be made between partners to avoid a largely unbalanced exchange, it is important to understand and accept that such outcome may occur regardless.

Take a peak at the previous rounds.  The gallery link is included at the top of the first post:

Round Three: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336361.0

If you would like to participate, please complete and submit the following questionnaire to me, dreadlocklove.  Please include “Gathered Roots – An Herbalism Swap R4” in the subject line.

I said no more swaps for a while, but I'm thinking about it.  Tongue

I am new with the whole Herbalism techniques and products but I think this would be a great way to help me decide what my out look on it is and learn new things. I have a friend who only has natural products and her family is the healthiest I know.

I am seriously considering joining this swap. The previous galleries are fantastic! I will probably wait until closer to the signup deadline to fill out my questionnaire.
