First Ever Local Craft Swap!

June 3, 2009

In the crafting world there are sewers, quilters, painters, jewelry artists, scrapbookers, woodworkers, photographers, knitters...just to name a few! With that being said, what better way to flex your creative muscles and hang out with friends than a local Craft Swap?

I am happy to announce that I’m organizing our first ever local Craft Swap! The Craft Swap will consist of five crafty ladies (Megan, Robbie, Kiara, Sherri, and I), thus we will each bring four crafty items to the party and we’ll go home with 4 unique crafty items, it’s a win-win situation! Stay tuned as the Craft Swap will be taking place sometime in August. If you’re interested in organizing your own local craft swap, you should take a look at the creativeness that takes place at
Burrow House’s local Craft Swap.

As for my craft, I’ve already decided what I’m going to make and have a prototype made, which is currently being tested by my hubby! Stay tuned for a picture parade of the Craft Swap outcome, as I have some awesomely creative family and friends!


  1. I LOVE this idea! Wish we lived closer so I could join in the fun. I may have to start a craft swap up here. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

  2. Hey Candice - Are there any rules for your swap (i.e. price limit or certain themes)? Just curious...

  3. Hey Snail Mail craft buddy! :) For the local Craft Swap we didn't set price limits or themes. I think everyone (including me!) is a bit nervous about the first Swap re: the worthiness of their craft, however it is all in good fun! We can make up whatever guidelines you would like to for our Swap! :)

  4. Glad to hear that you, like me, have nerves about our craft worthiness! But I am sure whatever you all make with will be amazing!!! I still haven't decided what I am going to do for our swap, but I'm sure having fun thinking of the possibilities! :)


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
