fancy a swap?


I just found this cool website, Swap-Bot,(isn't he cute?)It's devoted to swaps of all kinds, to all places. I had so much fun doing my first two swaps, the garland swap from A Year of Color class, and the rolled hem hankie swap, that I've decided to keep going! It's really a win-win situation; you get a reason to be creative, and no artist's block because you're given a theme, and you get something lovely in return via snail mail, which is something I love and that always brightens my day. Sometimes I think that's half the reason to buying something online, from Etsy for example, so you can receive something pretty in the mail that you can coo over!
I've decided to start easy on myself, so some of my first swaps are just of store bought postcards, I've always loved collected postcards ever since I was little, so it'll be fun to see what I get from my swap partners. And then, I also signed up for a fabric postcard swap, that'll be great fun, you have to make a postcard out of fabric - how cool is that? I can't wait to start on that, and I'll keep you posted, haha!
So, go and check it out, and maybe I'll get to swap something with you too! Enjoy!

I will definitely check it out! I love to get stuff that I don't/can't make in exchange for stuff that I do :)

Thank you for sharing...yes, it is nice to get snail mail that is NOT a bill or junk mail!
