This challenge is for any craft. Many of us are practicing social distancing and/or our state has issued an order to stay home. It's time to get creative! The idea is to use supplies we already have to make something special for someone else. I think we can all use some happy mail.

Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile.

You can make one item or several. Mix and match crafts if you have several hobbies. It's totally up to you! But everything must be handmade. Crafts vary in supply cost and time, but try to aim for something you'd value at least $10.

YOU MUST USE SUPPLIES YOU ALREADY OWN. Even though we love buying more bits and bobs and, "But it was on sale!," we all know we have enough crafting supplies to last awhile. Stay home and craft!

CREATE SOMETHING SPECIFICALLY FOR YOUR PARTNER. Read your partner's profile before beginning your craft. The idea is to make something special for them. For this reason you MUST have a well filled out profile. I will ban at my discretion but I will try to encourage you before the swap goes live to update your profile if it looks a little sparse.

INCLUDE A LETTER. It can be short or long, but please write a letter to your partner. You can write about crafting, how your life has changed in the last few weeks, or anything else on your mind. Include the name of this swap and your username.

DECORATE YOUR PACKAGE. Bubble mailers and boxes can easily be wrapped in paper and other embellishments. It doesn't need to be fancy, but make it happy! Be sure to send on time and with proper postage.

If your envelope/package meets the requirements above please leave feed back according to Swap Bot Rules:

5 - I got my stuff and it met posted swap requirements.

3 - I got my stuff, but it didn't meet the posted swap requirements.

1 - I never got anything.

Hearts are given at your own discretion.

If you have any questions, feel free to message me or drop a comment below.

Happy Crafting!
