Since last fall I've been involved in a little something called Swap-Bot. I had been introduced to craft swaps in general at the beginning of 2007 quite by accident. I chanced upon the sign up for a mini swap and had thought my little boy would find it fun. The swap was quite fun and 6 months later I was actively looking on the internet to find another one and happened upon Swap-Bot. No more looking for swaps...there's plenty there. So far it has been a very positive experience. There certainly is a lot af variety there and I have managed to recruite one more swap-bot junkie and there may be one more in the works. It definitely isn't for everyone, but for me, it's been a lot of fun. And I just bet Canada Post is enjoying it too! Pictured above are two different projects I have sent on their merry way. One was for a felt ornament swap and was made for a lady who loves to bake, and the second was for a felt bird swap. The pattern for the bird was free off the internet at Better Homes and Gardens, and the cupcake was hand drawn. Check out the table runner under the lamp in the cupcake photo. my mother -in-law made that many years ago. It is beautiful cutwork that is so precise it's amazing.
