I have found a new craze besides sewing... I am into swapping events... :) read in some blogs all the fabulous wonderful stuff the great crafters have been swapping... I can't help but want to participate in it too :)
Found several really interesting swap groups in Flickr... and one of the very first swap I participated is "Buttons, Buttons, Who's Got the Buttons Swap?".
It was in the theme of St Patrick's Day, where we swap green buttons and any sewing items that is green as well...
Here's a package I received from my swap partner Rochelle. Who has very kindly added A LOT more additional stuff in the package. Flown all the way from Ireland to here.
Here's just part of the package I've sent to my swap partner, Wendy of The Netherlands. I am so glad that she liked the embroidered buttons and the fabric flower pin I've sent her.
Here's another swap event I've participated in. Where I've sent my swap partner, Olive The Beach, 3 Fat Quarters, something handmade and a snack.
Participated in another swap, called the Maker Swap, organized by a craft blogger. This is the package I've sent off just a few days ago.
And finally here's the "Swap Around the World", I've joined. Sent off a package of cutesy handmade stickers plus fibres to my swap partner who is in Italy.
The world of swaps is sooooooo FUN!!! *wink*... have just signed up to participate in the new month of swap events -
1) A Little Fabric, A Little Chocolate Swap
2)Fat Quarters Fabric Swap with a Twist
Think that'll be all I'll be joining for the month of April. Have a few custom made orders that just came in and now have to be busy prepping for my new business venture... don't think I have very much time left to do swaps... hmmm... we'll see how it goes then... ;)
