GALLERY!



There once was a robin red-breasted,
at my bedroom window she nested.
The eggs were quite cute,
the babies not mute...
...my patience was certainly tested!

(yes, that's really a picture of a nest right outside my bedroom window... babies should be hatching any day now!)

OVERVIEW

Swap name: Garden/Outdoor Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Smeddley
Sign-up date range: 5/5/15-5/15/15
Date to send item by: 6/9/15
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No
Additional Age requirement? No

THE WRITE-UP

It's Spring!  It's Spring!  Well, in the Northern Hemisphere (sorry, Southern Hemisphere).  Time to get out and plant plants and enjoy sipping lemonade on patios and... whatever else it is you enjoy doing outside (horseshoes? croquet? water balloon fights?)

This will be a THREE POINT swap, and it has to have a Medium or Large item (so, basically, a Large or a Medium and a Small).  To give you an idea of what sizes are:

By Time/Price/Physical size
-Large = 3 or more hours/$30 or more
-Medium = 2 or more hours/$10-$30 dollars
-Small = 2 or less hours/$10 or less

Ideas to get you thinking: wind chimes, fairy houses, gnomes, yard art, plant markers, birdhouses/feeders, toad houses, flags, signs, seeds/bulbs (check on shipping regulations!), stepping stone molds, mosaic chips, outdoor pillows, outdoor tablecloths/mug rugs, lanterns, tree faces...

No one likes to be flaked on, so if you aren't sure if you can do this swap, PLEASE DON'T SIGN UP.  If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let me know ASAP.

Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once a week to let me know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let me know.

Delivery Confirmation is required within the U.S., please send tracking number to both your partner and organizer when you send. Please keep you mailing receipt if you are sending internationally.  PM both your Partner and your team organizer when you send and receive.

Please post pictures of what you receive. Your partner worked hard on it and we would all love to see it! If you cannot post up please let your partner know as soon as you know. Make sure you take pictures of everything you send just in case.
*Although posting pictures is not a requirement to receive positive feedback.*

Welcome to the swap, juliel85, pinkmichk, and hellobint!  The swap should be on your profiles.

Two robins have hatched in the nest, must have happened just this morning or last night.  The two adult robins are always close by...
