A Midsummer Night's Envelope Swap

One of the most ancient seasonal festivals is the Summer Solstice, celebrated around the world as Midsummer, Litha, St. John's Day, Alban Heruin, Ukon juhla, Festa Junina, Ivan Kupala Day, and by many other names. The astronomical solstice is June 21st, but June 24h is the traditional date in many places.

Let's celebrate this longest, brightest day of the year with a fun, quick envelope chain swap. Put something honouring the season into an envelope and send it to someone else. It's as simple as that. It can be a card, photo, ATC, recipe, spell, ritual, poem, drawing, or anything else, as long as it fits into a letter-size envelope at the letter postal rate. You can include more than one item, but at least one must be hand-crafted. But however much you put in that envelope, it must not require extra postage!

This is a chain swap - each participant will send to a different person, rather than in pairs. Since what you send is about what the Summer Solstice means to YOU, you don't need to wait until you know who your partner is to begin crafting. I'll PM you with your partner's info on the 16th, and you will need to send by the 20th of June. As this is an envelope-sized paper swap, no delivery confirmation number is required, but if your envelope goes missing, you must be prepared to send a replacement.

To participate in this fun, quick swap for Pagans, Witches and their friends, PM me with this questionnaire. If you aren't sure if you qualify to participate in a swap, or you need to review the rules, read https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html. Remember to PM me with your info rather than posting it in this thread.

Would it cost more for overseas particpants? Or are you keeping everyone in their areas?

Letter postage is always more for international, but still not as expensive as packages. The usual thing still applies - if you say you only want to swap within your country I'll match you up with someone local.

What a fun idea! Especially since you can make it ahead of time and just pop it into the envelope once you get an address!!!

Clear a space to make a mess!

Oh wow, I was struck with inspiration about half an hour after I read this post! I've never swapped but I'd like this to be my first...One question, what is the envelope size? Like a standard letter or...?
