I borrowed this idea from @Morgaine who "stole" this idea from a public swap by @Katica and she thought, as do I, it would be a fantastic idea that everyone could join in on, even those of you new to paganism. Everyone should feel comfortable joining this, what YOU have to offer IS valuable.
YOU will be making decorated mini book of shadows pages for this. Use sturdy card stock like pasteboard/very thick paper (the type of paper you would make greeting cards out of or even recycle postcards) and make the pages the size of a regular postcard (approx. 4x6 inches, but there can be slight flexibility) and please only write/decorate on one side in case some people choose to glue the cards into a book. And please sign you swapbot name in one corner of the cards.
In this round you will have 3 partners and you will be making 2 cards for your partner. So 6 cards in total, 3 partners, 2 for each partner. You MUST make ALL cards yourself, if you pass on someone elses work the swap requirements are NOT meet and you will be rated a 3.
The idea is to repeat this swap several times if it's a success and you will then hopefully wind up with a postcard sizes book of shadows made for you by your fellow swap-bot witches. Pretty cool huh? :-)
What kind of information should go on the cards? If you are newer than new to paganism, please don't let that stop you, we still want what YOU have to offer. You can put meditations, prayers, chants, spells, ritual instructions, lists of uses for herbs or gems, recipes for pagan holiday foods or recipes for things like herbal teas etc, information about myths or important historical pagan cultures or events, instructions for pagan crafts, personal poems relating to paganism....As you can see, there is a wide variety of information you can choose to put on your cards, and you can decorate them in any manner you choose to, so have fun and be creative with this.
I will write this again for good measure: Please put the information on one side of the card only so that people may choose to put their cards in an album or paste them into a book.
I highly encourage everyone to jump in on this swap. If you are new this is a really easy way to gather more information on paganism from people with more experience. If you are experienced it will be a fun collection to have. Just think how cute that little postcard sized Book of Shadows is gonna be. I know I enjoy my BoS already!
I will remind you again to please sign you swapbot name in one corner of the cards. Other than that just have lots and lots of fun with this. I hope many will sign up so we can do this swap again many times :-)
Ohhh, and if you have a special wish regarding if your cards should be oriented vertically or horizontally please write that to the partner sending to you as soon as partners are assigned, otherwise it will be senders choice :-)
