Craft Swap

A while back, Fran from Skulls and Ponies posted about setting up a craft swap. Years ago, when I lived at home, I used to participate in craft and candy swaps all the time. I absolutely loved putting together and sending out little packages. And receiving mail is ridiculously fun and exciting. So I jumped at the chance to participate in this swap.

My swap partner was Kate from Just Kate Crafting and I am thrilled with the swap results! We definitely had similar interests which made it easy to put together my package. I was silly and forgot to take a photo of what I sent but it included a pretty zipper pouch, a kitty kicker for her cats, and some cute post-its.

This was the awesome package that Kate sent me:

Her cards are so pretty! I'm very tempted to frame this to have up all year. It's so happy!

TEA! Yes, this excited me so much. And I swear I'm not a weirdo, but I felt so proper receiving tea from the U.K. Somehow it makes it better. But look at that adorable cozy!

My kitties enjoyed sniffing everything and I had to kick them off the desk numerous times while taking these photos.

This has me back in swap mode.... I'd love to send out more packages! I'm very busy with sewing since I have my biggest show of the year in August. But I'd love to even do a candy swap now, which is basically sending a package full of sweets that are fun, different, and possibly only found in your country (expect some Maple-flavoured candy from here). Then come September I could set up a craft/handmade swap.

Is anyone interested?

  1. Oh thanks for being so kind Jen :0) i must post about your lovely gift to me too. And also thank Fran. There was going to be a travel mug which the tea cosy fitted but shipping with it was a small fortune with that :(

  2. Interested that you associate Tea with England! After all, it actually comes from India, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), China and Kenya - mainly! I was reared on an Indian tea estate and had a cousin who followed his Dad into the business - first in Sri Lanka and then in Kenya. Every time I go past a shop selling tea leaves, and smell the aroma, it takes me back!! Still drink it too, but I like it as it comes without any milk or sugar!

    1. I drink tea black most of the time. But some tea, especially orange pekoe, needs milk for me to enjoy it.
