Craft Swap!

Craft Swap!

Here we go! New year new ideas! This is an idea for a craft swap! I am excited about this, but I need willing participants to join in!

The Idea:
Every month I will post a theme for example "wearable" then I will ask people to "sign up". Simply post your e-mail in the comment space below and I will contact you for the rest. After a week of getting people to sign up I will randomly pick partners. These partners will need to be kept a secret so the person you have does not know who has them... therefor allowing pictures to be posted of what you are making throughout the process without the person knowing what they are getting! (for obveous reasons the person you have will NOT have you!) You will then have two weeks to make something for your partner that fits the theme that month. At the end of the two weeks you will then mail your item to your partner so by the end of the month they will have a package containing a new handmade item just for them! And you will get one too! How great is that?!?!?! And dont forget to post photos along the way. I will post a link to my flickr page where everyone can upload their phots so others in the swap can view them. I want this to be an interactive swap and will randomly post thing that need a response to make sure you are still with us! I want everyone that signs up to follow throught because nothing is worse than working all month to get your item to your partner and then never recieving one!

So, any takers?
Know anyone who would like to participate?

I will be posting my first theme February 1st ONLY if there are 20 people on board!
Spread the word... This is going to be fun!
