Hello!! Just announcing a little swap I've decided to host, rolling off the success and fun of the handmade card swap I hosted a few months back.
It's November!! When did this year happen?? I can't believe Christmas is in less than 2 months. I love celebrating Christmas in a handmade kind of way, so I need to get cracking!!
I thought it would be nice to do another "paper craft" swap, but instead of normal sized greeting cards, we could make each other small gift tags to use this year. If you are interest in joining in this Christmas gift card swap, you will need to make and send 15 little gift cards/tags to somebody. That's it!!
Please leave your name and email address below in the comments (or you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know if you want to take part. You will have one week to do this. Entries close strictly on November 12th. I will then pair you up with a swap buddy and you will need to make 15 gift cards/tags and get them in the post by November 31st!! Sorry to be so tight with the dates, but time is of the essence here, people! Postage shouldn't be too much of a big expense as the tags are quite small and light, so please enter no matter where in the world you might be!
Below are a few images I found online to inspire you and give you an idea of what the swap will be all about!! Please feel free to get thrifty and recycle/up cycle, I think that's great!!
Speaking of Christmas swaps, I have just signed up over at the lovely Ladybird Diaries blog for her Christmas Decoration Swap. It looks lovely, and if you are a Christmas freak like me, I'm sure you'd love it.
And, if you haven't ordered a copy of my handmade magazine yet, why not do it now!!??? My lovely sis in law Ash has just started writing a great new blog, and she featured a write up on our mag! check it out www.thesquee.com
And below are a few links you can follow to purchase "Hundreds and Thousands"
NB- I'm a bit sad to hear that one or two people who sent cards as part of my handmade card swap never received anything back. These swaps are just a bit of fun, yes, but they also take a lot of time to organise, and a lot of time for each participant to sit down and make things for their partners. I think it's only fair that they receive something nice back!! Please only sign up for this is if you definitely plan to participate!!
