hi, i do i get the details of my swap buddy? thanks , want to egt cracking on it.. Tammy ----little wonder crafts

user1643 07/16/2006 #

Does it have to be completely handmade? i.e. Does a silkscreened t-shirt count?

user515 07/17/2006 #

Hi, thanks for your words and to joining this swap :) I'm exciting to see that we are more 45 people to sign it !!!

To Little wondercraft : You'll receive informations of your partner after the deadline (30 july) after you have a full month to craft it . You must send your items until the 2 september.

To Flufflyblubox : It's not necessary to be full handmade :) Just added your touch can be a right idea :) The most important: give a few from yourself and use your creativity :) A silkscreened t-shirt count is a nice and special idea (I love it !)

For the others : Some people of this swap haven't a diary/blog . I'm wondering if you want that I do a small questionary ( as fav colors, fav hobbies ...) It'd be a great idea ?

Happy week for everyone

michellelliott 07/18/2006 #

I completely thought I added my information and realized that I hadn't. If my swap partner is stuck, I hope this is a guide. If you have already started something, wonderful :)

I love all colors, but lately blue and brown or teal and brown are my favorite combos. I LOVE anything made from felt. I love birds. I am a stay-at-home mom so right now, my clothing style is not a style at all. I love paper so anything made with paper is great to. I love anything vintage and storage is always needed.

user1024 08/16/2006 #

Oh my word - my fellow UK partner sent me the most wonderful handfelted bag in subtle Englih winter colours of greys, beiges and off whites - it is glorious! Thank you so very much.
