This one is for our Pagan and Goddess leaning Farmgirl sisters. Let's get together and swap a wonderful stocking full of goodies for each other to celebrate our Winter Holiday of Yule/Solstice.

When you sign up please let your sister know a little about you; like maybe a patron Goddess or God or a tradition you follow so that the gifts can be more personal. Your gifts do not need to scream Pagan but something that you know holds special meaning like a mirror for self reflection or a stag with an explanation if you would like of why you picked it. I think the stockings shouldn't be less than 12" but more if you want. You can insert anything you would like to make it full of Wintertime excitement here is a link to etsy for some ideas http://www.etsy.com/search?q=pagan%20gifts&view_type=gallery&ship_to=US but please don't feel all gifts need to be purchased or handmade you do what your witchy self want to! Please sign up by Friday November 23rd and I will get names assigned by Sunday the 25th.
Please send out the stockings by December 11th so that we can all get them before the Solstice. Thanks ladies I can't wait to see what we all make!

Hi, Erin!
I haven't been on the board in awhile, but when I got on here last night I was so excited to see this swap! Then I discovered it was closed! :( If there's any way to add me I'd love to join, if not, I understand and hope you do another swap like this soon!!

I'm so sorry Marmaladefarm I've been getting ready for my daughter's birthday. If you would like I would be happy to swap with you if you are still interested. I plan on doing another swap for the Spring Equinox also because I figure the more we do it the more people that will be interested right?
So how are everyone's projects coming? I can't wait to see what you ladies come up with please share photos if you can.

I also would love a Spring Equinox swap too!

And Charlotte, your timing is just fine with me. I've had bronchitis and I'm a bit slow myself. We'll just do what we can. I'll be sending out to you soon.

i hope you are doing better, Cate. DH has sinusitis, bronchitis, somehting. the doctor thinks, and i tend to agree, it is his body trying to detox from his quitting smoking and trying to eat better.
and we will most definitely do what we can. that is the whole pooint is it not? :-)

Thanks Char! I can believe that a detox drops your immunity initially. You should have seen what a monster I was when I just cut out refined sugar - Eek! Hey I just sent you an email.

I saw a post someone put up on the swap board about a secret sister swap would anyone be interested in something like that? Just a little something once a month or so?

@Char - watch the mail Momma, I sent your package today and she said you'll see it on Yule if not the day before. (Go Go Busy Postal Worker Bees!!)You'll see tons of packing tape on it because the Faeries were messing with me something fierce this morning. --> Forgot the card, open it up, put in the card, close it up, forgot this thingie, open it up and move the card, put in the thingie, close it up, forgot the dang card again, open it back up....I was laughing so hard I was weeping!

@Erin - I'd love to tell you I'm organized and ambitious enough to do a monthly swap, I'm so much better at the occasional/ holiday sorts. BTW, THANK YOU for all the lovely ideas and for the work you put into setting up this swap. You rock!

Got the P.O.pick up slip yesterday. LOL you sound like me with the tape. they wouldn't let me play with tape when i was younger, so i make up for it now. Glad you had a laugh.

My camera batteries are poof, but I got an awesome stocking from Rachel. Yummy teas, candles, casting powders... And Rachel does beautiful glass work and included a couple of pieces a picture of the Green Man and and goddess. Oooo I wish my camera wasn't down. Rachel, if you have photos will you post please? There's more goodies too. I can't remember everything now. I had a blast!

Cate was concerned that the candles were chipped in transit and that she didn't hadn't wrapped htem well enough. Yes she did, the chips are a result of Belle, a.k.a. brat puppy, having to "taste" them to see if they were edible. she decided they were not.
and i forgot the hand warmers Cate made, and the cutest little bottle cap magnet with a sexy Witch on it :-)
