- Spring 2006
When we think of spring time, we think of flowers blooming and birds returning home, so four The Gourd Reserve's First Gourd Exchange in our Email group, we decided to do something related to birds, so these gourds are bird feeders and bird houses.
- 2007 Mini Exchange
Winter time, a time of snow, Christmas tree's, and ornaments. Speaking of ornaments, this exchange revolves around "Mini" Gourds. Mini Gourds are generally considered 3 inches or smaller in height. many think that being small makes them relatively easy to craft, but tiny gourds many times means tiny details and limitations on what your trying to create. This is a great excercise and was great fun. Check out how these creative gourd artists approach this challenge.
