I don’t know about you but I love Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven”. I love black birds and the way their feathers shimmer in the sun. It the is the inspiration for this swap. I decided to change the bird theme and just go with a black theme.

For this swap you will be sending your partner 4-5 black colored items in a sandwich sized or larger baggie. You may also sew up a baggie of the same size and use that. I know I have some fabulous creepy raven fabric that I might use! Items can be handmade or purchased but they HAVE to be good quality. You should create a baggie that you would happily give to your partner in person.

Items should be all black or mostly black.

DON’T- Send old, dirty, smelly, torn, junky items..

DO- Check your partners profile and made sure you are sending something they will like or use. Not everyone likes ATC’s, stickers, foam things, or scrapbook paper.

IDEAS- Tea Towels, earrings, pendants, buttons, fabric, felt stuffies, knitted or crocheted items, stickers, paper, postcards, cross stitch, clay, tin signs, ribbon, etc.. Feel free to post more ideas below. Be creative and make it fun for your partner! Need more ideas? Check their profile!!!

Please do not have lots of swaps open. No more than 15 please! Trust me it’s easy to forget and all of a sudden get overwhelmed by deadlines!

FYI- I will review all profiles and will ban as necessary. I want this to be super fun and no one likes a flaker. I will angel if you are flaked on. Please let me know after you have attempted to contact your partner. Rate them a one after the rating deadline. If they do not respond to any attempts message me ASAP. Feel free to contact me about this swap and I will answer any questions to the best of my ability.

FINAL NOTES- Please include a note with your name and swap info. Don’t forget to rate promptly!

No recent one's or three's without a reasonable explanation. Since this is my first time hosting I have set the requirement at 4.95. No unrated swapper this time.

4-5 black colored items in a sandwich 6.5 x 6.5 or larger baggie! Send, Rate, enjoy!

USA only for now. If someone wants to steal and host an international version feel free.

Just a little FYI. Due to the Christmas and advent season I generally do have a full dash of 20 swaps! not allhave partners assigned but those that do I am generally working on getting out. Please check my ratings and consider letting them speak for my ability to handle the high number of swaps. Thank you. Pat
