Making things in threes: Lets Swap

Over the last week or so I have been working on chocolate boxes for a customer, I  tried my hand at the bead perfume displays, I was working on a few little cakes for a friend and I received the most beautiful amazing gifts from Jennybee over at The Dark Side of a Mini Addict:

I don't want to blab too much about Jennybee and her amazing work or spoil the fact that she sent me a gorgeous scarf and one of her exquisite pieces of furniture....but..I guess I just did. Anyways I'll keep it short...

Beautifully crafted and amazing work...luv u

SO what did all this skill building and gift giving cook up for us, you might say?

I decided to work on a piece for my Etsy store: Tis the season

but then I started thinking... maybe a red set..

....but then I started thinking why not three red sets:

what are ya getting at Jane?

Who wants to swap???

So I have three sets like this one above. I would like to swap for things for Holiday Inc:

I need:

Christmas Room:
Wrapped presents and bags
Small toys
Lycopodium , princess pine, ground cedar  < can't find this anywhere...

Halloween Room:
creepy things
dark plants...

May Day: or summer room
Plants, flowers greenery...I SUCK at this
out door decorations, bird feeder.
birds, bugs,

Now this may not be how the traditional swaps go but this makes sense for me:  Gifts and exchange for your talents where mine suck ;P

Ok so I have three sets lets see who is interested , please let me know via Comments below or Google:

You should have a blog, will I make a exception..maybe
You need to be a member of this blog today.. exception if your part of my miniatures community
You want to be the 4th trade..exceptions..maybe

Ok let see who bites and I will random pick if we have too many.
