Magical Herbs and Mystical Plants - Due July 4, 2011
Swap Due Date: July 4
Signup/Withdraw Date: July 4
Number of Cards: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of Participants: Unlimited


RETURNS HAVE BEEN MAILED OUT



Older people have heard of the Mandrake Plant and Ginsing Root.
The younger generation is familiar with the Whomping Willow.
Some people know about the odd, Fanged Geranium; or the carnivorous Venus Flytrap, or the Pitcher Plant, that drowns its victims.

With the advent of the Harry Potter phenomenon, more people are familiar with magical, mystical, plants.
Are you one of the knowledgeable, or merely curious?

This swap is about Mandrakes that SCREAM when transplanted, and Mimbulus mimbletonia that shoot out stink sap.
This swap is about belladonna, bubotubers and bubotuber pus.

This includes plants known in the Harry Potter wizarding world, or plants discovered growing in the Mists of Avalon.
This includes plants from books, such as Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea series, or the books of Earth Children, a series that starts with the Clan of the Cave Bear and whose most recent edition, Land of Painted Caves, was just published last month. This includes plants described in games such as Dragons & Dungeons, and movies such as Avatar, which has strong references to, and descriptions of, magical plants and their uses.

This includes wild herbs and foraged food, plus recipes, if you are so inclined.
This includes magical and mystical plants, real or imagined.
This includes the magical thoughts and mystical imaginations of Nancy Drew, and you!

One potential participant says she remembers growing Tansy and making tansy tea in high school for her uncle because her colonial herb book said it would be good for what was ailing him at the time. It also was supposed to make you see fairies. She said they had a good laugh over that one for years, and this strikes me as a potential FUN card.

Here are 2 of the cards. I used belladonna and rattlesnake root, which is from the Earth's Childrens books Clan of the Cave Bear.

I love Clan of the Cave Bear.
I didn't think of that one - I will have to add that to the intro.
GREAT choice! And thanks!

I made Tansy wine in high school, but it tasted like swill, so I drank more, thinking it was good for me. You know, all things good for one taste bad (wisdom straight from my mother's lips). OMG, but was I SICK, and I think the fairies (things) I saw were from being on the pills the doctor gave me.

I really think you NEED to sign up.

Vicki Z
04-23-2011, 05:48 PM

Warmer weather in Minnesota has the dandelions growing, as well as comfrey, motherwort, and lupines.
I can't wait to see the nettles grow. I just found a recipe for making "papyrus" out of stinging nettles.

I cant seem to keep my dogs out of the magical herbs...since they were puppies they played ring around the rosemary, lavendar and sage....LOL! my dogs always smell so good

Vicki Z
04-26-2011, 10:10 AM
I had a fantastic harvest last year of comfrey, feverfew, euchasia, lemon blam, bee balm, and lavendar. Looking forward to this year's harvest as well. I try to purchase unique bottles at local thrift stores for my magical herbs and then place them in my magic cabinet for safe keeping and easy access. It smells absolutely yummy every time I open those doors!
Blessed Be!

Sounds like we should do an herb exchange!
Your magic cabinet sounds FAB.
Do you have pictures?

Vicki Z
04-26-2011, 02:45 PM

GREAT to have great-smelling dogs, oddbreed!
I LOVE that so many of you are growing, and bottle-ing herbs.

JenCreates
04-26-2011, 09:21 PM
An herb exchange sounds like lots of fun! I don't have an herb garden... maybe that should go on my project board!

Vicki Z
04-26-2011, 11:19 PM
Most herbs can be grown in a pot in a window. One can raise herbs on a small scale, you don't need an entire garden.
Just don't start with Comfrey - unless you have a rather large pot, and a big window. LOL

Vicki Z
04-27-2011, 08:24 PM
That is AWESOME.
Love all the bottles and shapes and colors.
Very, very cool.
Thank you so much for taking pictures, and posting.
Love that kitchen witch!!!

May i play AGAIN?

In the swap desciption there is a note that you can also make imagined plants.
Do you mean by imagined only from books/movies or also imagined and created by yourself?

Vicki Z
05-04-2011, 02:13 PM
Yes, you may play AGAIN, Nightvamp.
I always love your cards, can't wait to see what you create.

Imagined plants means plants inspired by the imagination of book authors, or screen writers, or nightmare visitors or YOU!

So, please feel free to create plants that are the product of your own imagination.

It would also be nice if you named any plants that you create or imagine, since who they are, or what they do, or how they behave, may not be immeditely obvious to others. :0)

I'm so glad I saw this swap! Please sign me up! I'm very into the magical properties of herbs and flowers (from the Old Religion, though I certainly love the Harry Potter interpretations!).

I'm just following you around like a little puppy dog, Vicki!!

We took a road trip over the weekend, and found some new plants during our travels.

I found a coltsfoot plant, whose leaves are supposed to resemble a colt's foot in cross section. The plant was in flower, and no leaves were to be seen, so I will have to find some leaves another day.

Thanks to one swapper who already sent in a coltsfoot card, which is beautiful!

AWESOME cards, Tambilina.

Can't wait to see them IRL.

Thank you for posting so we can all be inspired.

nadiabekker
06-15-2011, 02:37 PM
I discovered some real useful plants in my mind :D : "sweet cupido", "catch a fallen star plant", "mystical raindrops" and "golden crown bush"
I'll post pictures with instructions as soon as I finished them :rolleyes:

OhhhhhH

Can't wait to see what you have created.

nadiabekker
06-16-2011, 03:42 PM
The first two cards:

74971

The left one is called "Golden Crown Bush": Pick one of the little crowns, shake it very well for one minute, put it on your head and you will be a prince or a princess for one day…

On the right you see "Sweet Cupido": The hearts contains little seeds from which you can make delicious tea. The effect of drinking the tea is always positive but unpredictable and has definitely something to do with love……

nadiabekker
06-16-2011, 03:46 PM
The other two cards:

74973

The first plant is called "Mystical Raindrops": This plant has raindrops growing on its branches. Pick the raindrops, throw them in the air and you will get a little rainshower for about one square metre. It’s so nice to water your garden this way….

The second is the "Catch a fallen star plant: This plant grows with empty branches but during the night they catch the fallen stars. Pick the flowers, put them in a vase with sugared water and they will spread a little stardust which gives you energy for at least a week…..

There you go, Gerry, a new challenge for you.
Sewn or quilted or embroidered cards are always so gorgeous, and I bet you could do a FABULOUS job on some.

Returns have been mailed!!
And four people have already received their cards.
Kudos to the posties!!!

Hopefully the other US participants should start receiving their cards by the weekend.
International participants, unfortunately, usually have to wait a little longer to get their returns.

Thanks to all of you for some absolutely stellar work. The submissions were AWESOME. I loved the cards you sent in and it was obvious a lot of effort went into creating them! I can't believe all the wonderful, unique, and creative ways you depicted herbs and plants, real and mythical, drawing on numerous sources and using varied mediums. Thank you!

When your cards arrive, please remember to give iTrader (to me) and "You Rock" rep points (to the players whose cards you receive in your returns). This is a great way to say thank you for the card, and also then everyone knows where their creations ended up.

Thanks again for playing.

Almost everyone has indicated they have received their returns, so I am closing down this thread.
If you are one of the few who have not let me an itrade or given URock points to your fellow players, you may still do so even after this Swap is archived. Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to make comments.

Thanks to each and every one of you for participating, and for sending in some AWESOME cards.
