This swap is all about faux taxidermy.  The idea is to create a faux taxidermied animal (or animals) for your partner.  There are all kinds of techniques that could apply, here are a few links for inspiration:

     http://www.cardboardsafari.com/
     https://www.etsy.com/search?q=plush%20taxidermy&order=most_relevant
     http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=faux%20taxidermy
     http://www.donyacoward.co.uk/

This swap will be for one Large item or one Medium + one Small item.  Extras are optional, but please discuss this with your swap partner so that no one feels bad for not sending "enough".


(A general guide)
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


Posting pictures is required for this swap!  Seeing everyone's creations is half the fun!  If you do not have the capability to post pictures, you MUST let your partner know in advance and ask them to take pictures before they ship and post for you.  Failure to post pics of what you received will be noted in your feedback.  

If possible, please use the following labels when PMing me so that I can be most effective at keeping up with everything (for all of us) Smiley.

Oh, me, me! lol
I am sure that anyone would love just about anything from you. And you know, I will probably put something other than birds down as my animals of choice.  Shocked
