  • What swaps would you like to see?

    What swaps would you like to see? Let us know if there is something specific that you would like to see us swap, and you aren't ready to host/ess a swap. This doesn't necessarily have to be art or craft. It can be anything that one can easily send through the mail. I believe that we can discuss the possibilities for these swaps, and find an experienced hostess for them. We generally will start with a poll for interest, and if enough people are interested we will start the swap with the sign up thread. See below for hostess opportunities. Just let me or Merrilyn know if you are interested in hostessing one. Please read the Swap Courtesies before starting one please.

      ABSOLUTLY!!!

      And a friend of mine and I came up with these things:
      Smell goods swap
      Charm swap
      candle holder swap- like you decorate a regular glass votive holder....

      I think my friend and I are going to host these- she's ready to try her hand at hosting i think....

      There are some others- i just can't think of them right now...

        Oh geez, these are all good ones.

        Thanks for the thoughts. I have started adding the hostess opportunities to the first post, that way we know what all is available, and when they are taken on by a hostess.

          I have some really neat ideas for the candle holder swap. I don't even need to buy the votives as these just wrap around a votive, and you can remove them if you want to change them.

          OOOOOOOOO I can't wait. Sweet.

              I'd be willing to host a handmade valentine card swap as I'm already doing one on another site. I could just copy paste my post here and we could get it going.

                How about an altar cloth swap?

                Or, maybe a Chakra swap (items relating to one or each of the chakras)

                    Oh wow yes these would be lovely. That Chakra ones are great. I would be so kewl to do one for each chakra. Like I would love to do that one. We could have a brief explanation of the Chakra, and the correspondences and go from there. I think one a month would be fine, or maybe every other month. What a clever idea. Do you want to hostess this one Annorah, or maybe just do a poll first. Wee how fun is this.

                    The altar cloth is one that I have been considering as well.

                      Altar cloth swap! Yeah! Can't wait—especially if it's handmade!

                      If someone will give me some tips on this sort of swap, I'd be willing to host. But not until February or March (I'm really busy with other swaps until then).
                      _________________________

                      As for other swaps? How about one where the cover of a sketchbook is decorated and then the whole thing is swapped? They would have to be big ones, just blank with sturdy pages so people can do light water color, sketching or just keep an idea log. I use mine all the time to figure out my swaps and trades by listing supplies and doing sketches.
                      _________________________

                      BTW I prefer pagan themes. I do these things elsewhere but can't address my spiritual beliefs in such a supportive environment. It's not that I won't do a non-pagan theme... it's just a preference.

                          That would be a very interesting one! I'd have to learn how to make one, but it would be fun to share one from my bioregion with someone else.

                            What about a handmade divination swap? Maybe someone makes scrying mirrors another makes pendulums another makes runes etc.

                            Perhaps a handmade Potion, Powder, Oil, Candle, Bath Salts or Incense swap.

                              We are getting great ideas, thank you everyone. I can't wait for some of these to take off. We now need to start thinking about hostesses for these wonderful swaps. I'm willing to help anyone with this. The Swap Courtesy thread give many of the best practices for assuring that the swap runs smoothly. Let me know if you want to host/ess one of these swaps. I want to join them all. Of course, we need to spread them out some, as I just don't have the creative bump all the time. I need to make sure that I can come up with ideas fast enough. :rollingla
