Welcome to the Dal House Forum's newest swap! This is a low key swap.

The theme is Earth Day/nature. Earth Day is April 22, but your swap can arrive anytime in April. You will be mailing a bubble envelope containing a card and one or two nature-themed gifts.

Your envelope should include a handmade card and one or more other doll items. You should spend around $15 or make items worth around $15.  (No Barbie, Monster High, Bratz etc. clothing or items.)

To participate, choose a Dal who enjoys nature and post a photo and a short bio below. Sign up and PM your real world address to TrueFan by April 8.

Questions? Please post them here!

Participants:
Kira Kira/Seri (Loa on a stock body)
CornflowerBlue/Tinkerbell (stock body)
dargosmydaddy/Sanada (stock body)
TrueFan/Eiri (Rot Chan on a stock body)
hugosdaughter/Whisper (Darony on a stock body)

The swaps all sound fun, but I feel like I live too far from any suppliers of dolly things – it takes too long to get them by mail -- to get a swap package together in time.  And I don't sew. Of course, I could have thought about it a few months ahead, but, life and stuff…

Not all doll stuff is clothes.   I love accessories, doll house items, or items to display near the dolls It is always fun to receive items where the giver has done something different.

Do you bead, knit, crochet, origami, scrapbook?

Do you have anything you could use to make cushions with?  They do not need to be sewn they can be glued.

Mini doll wash cloth and towel set could be made from a human wash cloth and have plenty left over for a set for yourself.

What about a picture frame for the doll house wall or to put on an easel? You can download a picture from the internet and then "frame" it out.  

A Doll sized shadow box.

Every doll needs a pet.

I would enjoy receiving any of these.

Whisper (Darony on stock body) here again.  April: Earth Day swap Wisper11

It's been a long cold winter.  I'm ready to change into jeans and a tee shirt and get outside.  Mom has a "natural bird habitat" (I call it a weed patch) outside the patio doors.  I enjoy watching the birds.  Maybe Mom can take me out there soon and we can plant some flowers for the birds (and ME) to enjoy.

I'm looking forward to taking part in this Earth Day swap.

I will love anything you send.

If you are looking for ideas something with some flowers to look at until the flowers outside come in would be great.

Seri the Loa.  Stock body.

April: Earth Day swap 47532231041_89c3ea887a

Heyyyyy.  It's me, Seri, AGAIN.  You probably saw several photos of me recently, and here I am once more.  This time, it's because I'm participating in the Earth Day Swap.  I know, I know.  I'm plastic, I'm probably off-gassing plastic fumes.  From the way I'm dressed, to my unnatural pink hair, it sure doesn't look like I would enjoy anything nature-related.  But I love all animals.  I love flowers.  I pretty much love anything and everything about nature.

Hi, I'm Eiri (Rot Chan on a stock body). I could spend all day outside. I am especially fond of birds, and I wonder when the woodpecker is going to return!

April: Earth Day swap 40591618663_6c60461506_zSan15 by tisue999, on Flickr

I'm Sanada (Sanada Yukimura, stock body), and here I am with the daffodil we found growing from a crack in the driveway yesterday. I actually prefer forests to flowers, and wish I could leave civilization behind and enjoy the solitude of nature. I do love wild animals, and my friends call me a grumpy bear!

Happy Belated Earth Day, all.

Just a quick note to say that I mailed my swap stuff on Monday, and it should reach where it's destination on Friday.
