I am sitting here browsing both the box of sunshine and the colour box threads, whilst eating a packet of Skittles and got to thinking.

A box of Sunshine during this miserable weather is fabulous (I live in England and therefore need as much sunshine as I can get) a box full of purple is amazing....but how awesome would it be to receive a boxed rainbow?

I have checked with both LimeRiot and lindyv to ensure I am not treading on toes and been given the go ahead.

As I see it the idea would be that we send 8 items, 7 of which will represent the 7 colours of the rainbow separately (ie one red, one orange, one yellow etc) and the 8th would represent all 7 colours. I thought we could craft a minimum of 4 items, one medium and three smalls and the rest can be shop bought or crafted if you want to craft them. I am however open for suggestions.

I thought it could run through March so it does not clash with either of the current colour swaps.

I am happy to organise though it will be my first time so would be more than happy to have a co organiser =)

I posted this exact thing several months ago because I thought it would be fun but the feedback I got was people didn't want that large of a swap  Sad

I would still be interested in it though if there is more interest now!

Oh sorry I did not check back through posts...
We will wait and see interest then, if we do not get any fancy a private swap?

I like the idea of a rainbow swap more than a single color swap.  If this happens, I'll be interested!

    I love the idea of this.  If I had a spot open during sign ups I would definitely be on board for this.

    I would be in for this when it comes up!  I like the idea of minimum crafting 4 items and store-bought the other 4.  It is a big swap but at least you wouldn't have to make all 8 items (unless you wanted to).  It's a great compromise and I'm all for it!
