Let's start a monthly swap for each month's birthcolor/flower!
Here is a list to help us out:
MONTH - BIRTHSTONE - FLOWER
January, Garnet, carnation or snowdrop
February, Amethyst, violet or primrose
March, Aquamarine, Jonquil (daffodil)
April, Diamond, sweet pea or daisy
May, Emerald, lily of the valley
June, Pearl, rose
July, Ruby, Larkspur or water lily
August, Peridot, gladiolus or poppy
September, Sapphire, aster or morning glory
October, Opal, marigold
November, Yellow Topaz, chrysanthemum
December, Zircon or Turquoise, narcissus
Now, since this is August we will start with Peridot and Gladiolus or Poppy. NOTE: each swap will most likely be a bit different.
For this swap you will send your partner 1 ATC with the month's flower (your pick of gladiolus or poppy). Make a lovely ATC incorporating the flower - you may even hand draw or paint it, if you prefer. Just make it something you'd love to receive!
As for the peridot part of the swap you will make or buy something with the peridot stone (yes it can be artificial peridot). If you do not know - peridot is a beautiful, light green color. You can make or buy simple jewelry (necklace, earrings, bracelet), key ring, bookmark with a peridot bead attached, purse charm (aka zipper pull), magnet, or anything else your heart desires. This month it's your choice on how you want to incorporate the birthstone.
Please check your partner's profile to see their preferences. (some people do NOT like jewelry - I can't understand this myself :) but check to be sure!)
All in the group are welcome to join! Have fun and be creative!
