Take a walk in the nearby woods or park, during the day or at night and capture or rescue a fairy. Make your fairy a nice home in a glass jar. Not a large jar, maybe a seasoning jar or babyfood jar. Just make sure that you can see your fairy in the jar. Make sure to decorate the lid so that your fairy does not get mistaken for seasoning salt and get shaken up.
Write a short story introducing your fairy, telling where you found her/him, and what you have put in their home. Please add any other important information about your fairy that the new guardian will need.
Sources for jars: your kitchen cupboard spices loose their potency after a year so it might be time to replace one. Your local thrift store, craft or antique store.
The fairy can be a very small 3 dimensional doll. The fairy can be a two dimensional picture. Pictures can be mounted to a piece of cardboard and then attach to small wooden block so she can be "free standing" in the bottle. These are just ideas, you could make your fairy out of shrink art or anything you like, maybe clay?
Bottom line requirements:
I review profiles and ban anyone that I have questions about. I have been flaked on two of these jars before so I tend to be rather strict. If you think you might have trouble getting in, PM me before you sign up. For something like this I really like to be able to see FLICKR or blog pictures of craftwork you have done in the past. It really increases my comfort level with allowing you in the swap. It is not required since everyone does not have FLICKR. My first priority is to the group.
Since there seem to be a lot of group swaps ending in April I am putting this one to send on the last day of May.
