Dear forest folk,

I have a quest for you that should ensure the coming of spring for I am only too aware at how cold it is becoming here and we all know how winter tends to stay with and refuse to go sometimes.

There is the legend of an arrow of spring that I have come upon. It is said to be a wonderous arrow, full of the warm magic of spring - if you shoot it into the sky it spreads its magic all over the country and makes the snow melt and the plants waken up.

Nowadays it is not known where this magical arrow has disappeared to, but I am of the firm belief that if we all work on this together we may raise the magic of spring and ensure warmth and growth spring brings.

So who will join me in this quest?

Out of Character:

Make or buy an arrow - it doesn't need to be as large as a REAL one but let's say about 20cm or longer. You can make this as simple as taking a thin piece of wood (even a bent, natural one!) and sharpen its one end, or use something as an arrowhead, or if you like being more specific take a piece of stone that serves the purpose well enough and glue and bind it with leather onto the wood.

Once done with that - decorate the arrow. Go as tame or as wild as you like. Carve, paint, glue, hang ornaments onto it, WHATEVER reminds you of spring or what you want to create as a bringer of spring. You could carve runes into the arrow, adorn it with feathers, glue some moss onto it - to give it a natural look and feel. Or maybe your arrow is made by some glitter-loving cave-dweller who would rather glue tiny crystals into the wood or adorn it with glitter.

Think fun, think spring and try to relate it to your character so it makes a little sense. :) In the end pack it up well and send it along with a small letter written by your character.

The idea is to create an unusual and special spring ornament - or maybe an arrow you will really shoot out into the skies. :)

This is international and you have one swap partner. I am leaving quite some time until the send by date so I hope this will encourage people to join - enough time to create something special. :)
