Indroducing: A Monthly Craft Swap


After spending the weekend crafting a sipping tea with some very talented ladies at CREATIVE TEA TIME, an idea struck me to create a monthly craft swap! We all have so many creative talents, why not share them just for fun?! Plus, who doesn't love receiving "happy mail"?


Our monthly craft swap will work a little something like this; on the 1st of each month you will receive an email from me with information on the next month's swap theme along with details on who you will be sending your swap box to. Your swap box should include at least 3 handmade crafts (a $25 value or less) that correlate with the theme specified (vintage items & store bought gifts are also acceptable) each month you will receive a swap box surprise from a new fellow craft-a-holic. Please be sure to send out your swap box NO LATER than the 20th of EACH MONTH. Remember, this is supposed to be fun! Be CREATIVE! If you are a crafty business owner, feel free to share your work with others. Let's share our talents & get our creative juices flowing!

Below, is a photo of some ideas of next month's theme: 
MARCH“Lucky Gold”


Keeping with the St. Patty’s day theme, we decided to glam it up this month with everything GOLD! Plus, who doesn’t love a little touch of gold in their life?! A few simple ideas for crafts include: a hand lettered print, gold painted & glittered mason jar, yarn poms, glittered clothespins & hand stamped/ embellished gift tags (set of 5). Create whatever your heart desires, as long as it is GOLDEN!

The swap will run a month ahead, that way it gives you time to work on your projects. For example: You will receive an email on February 1st with details for March's theme. You will send your box out by the 20th so that the recipient will be able to enjoy it by March 1st.

The schedule will look a little something like this:
FEBRUARY 1st: MARCH's box
MARCH 1st: APRIL's box
APRIL 1st: MAY's box
(and so on...)

If you are interested in signing up, please email me

What I need from you is:
YOUR NAME:
YOUR ADDRESS:

If you are worried about not being able to participate every month, no need to worry! When I send out emails at the beginning of each month I will ask for you to reply. I will only match up everyone who I receive a response from.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me any time
Happy Crafting!
