First things first. Most of us know each other or know someone that knows someone ... whatever. I believe that this is a very safe group to swap in and I feel comfortable doing gift swaps in this group. With that being said, I will most definitely angel this swap if need be but I don't think that's going to happen.

This is a swap that you most likely will shop for because it's for an art supply based on your partner's preferences. Each participant may post a five item (max) wishlist. It can be as specific as the #s of the Tombow dual ended pens you'd like to have or it can be your favorite colors, ink brand etc.


SPEND (with or without a coupon) around $10.00 prior to shipping. (If shipping within your own state check out the new regional shipping boxes.)

WRAP your gift so it looks like you care.

LABEL your gift so you can be rated.

SHIP in a timely manner because we know that the USPS can be overwhelmed during the holidays.

RATE when you receive your gift; do the ❤️ thing whenever you want.

Let me be clear. I love upcycling, recycling, rehoming etc. However, this is not the place for that. If you opened a jar of matte medium and only used it twice... it's not new. Put it back on your shelf. There are plenty of "Traveling Box" swaps for you to add that to. This is for a NEW gift. If you have a $20 jar of Golden matte medium on your shelf that you purchased but have never used AND you know your partner will appreciate it, go for it. Nothing but new and current!

I don't really have a wishlist. I love seed beads, fun canochons for beading, cat related items, rubber stamps, and other random odds and ends.

I know that isn't very helpful, but I'm really easy to please! :)

Some things I'd love to try:

Sepia micron pens

Dylusions paint

Mixed Media mediums

Silhouette Mint stamp kits

I also don't really have a particular wishlist! I think my profile is pretty detailed and I have Etsy, Jetpens and Amazon wishlist links on there!

In addition to my little wishlist up there, I’d like to say that I am really easy to please. If my partner has an idea for me outside of the five things I listed, please feel free to stray from the list!

Tigerlilyknotwise 11/10/2017 #

Same! I don't know how much I have on my profile at the moment, but I do have Etsy lists as well, and I love surprises too!

Heynowokay 11/10/2017 #

P.S. That was supposed to say cabochons, d'oh. I like surprises, so I'm just excited to participate!

I’ve got a general and a Christmas wishlist on my profile, plus I’ve added pretty much all my hearts desires to my amazon page (link at top of my profile) Things I can ALWAYS use are gel medium, cold press watercolor paper, embossing powders, stamps (unmounted, cling mounted rubber or clear, or wood mounted...I use them all!) and dies for my sizzix machine. Really though, anything at all you think I’d like is fine, cause I’m super duper easy to please!

Heynowokay 11/12/2017 #

Oh my gosh, I just ordered from my partner's wishlist! Cannot wait to get those sent to her. <3

Ranger Distress ink pad re-inkers any color Fountain ink pen, the kind that needs cartridges Inka gold – any color Crackle texture paste Ranger Mini Distress Ink Storage Tin
