Love tea, love crafting?

Send 1 partner the following:
1. A teabag or a coffee sachet or a hot drink packet
2. A handmade item concerning tea/coffee/hotdrinks!

As to what the handmade item is, let your imagination run wild! It could be an ATC, a knitted teapot cosy, a tea caddy, handmade soap with tea leaves, anything! Try to use your favourite craft and work 'tea' or 'coffee' into it!

Do post any questions or preferences for teabags (eg. allergies) below.

This is an international swap, and as such, if there are any Australian friends here, and you are assigned to them, please remember that Australian customs is rather picky about what goes into Australia! Thanks to Sharlzie in Australia, here's a link for what exactly you can or can not send into Australia! http://www.daff.gov.au/content/output.cfm?ObjectID=92E664D1-A012-4F8C-A481E22DE6759942

This swap is open to all swappers with ratings above 4.5, and is international. Please honour your commitment to swap! Thank you!

What a great idea!

I have no allergies and drink tea adventurously :0)

raydance 03/31/2007 #

I drink tea adventurously as well, but I do prefer if no Chinese tea comes my way (oolong, iron buddha) because it's available in plentiful amounts where I live, and I'd really like to try something different!

I'm a new swapper, but totally committed. Just wanted to say that I love tea, have quite a collection, but do not drink coffee. Just fyi. Hope to be allowed to swap with you guys.

I love it all, coffee, tea, cocoa, cider, cappuccino mixes, bring it on! I am SO excited about this swap and can;t wait to see what creative items come out of it. Please post photos in the gallery if you can. It makes the swap that much more fun AND inspiring! Warmly, Chy

Glad to see people in the swap and excited about it! =D I can't wait to see the lovely items either, I think I already know what to make! =D!

As usual, do let me know if there're any questions about the swap, etc etc.

Hi, i am newbie for swap and i would love to join my first time swap !

user7472 04/ 7/2007 #

This is a brilliant idea, we drink tea all over the world and we can now share our love by sending our tea and craft items to someone who will appreciate it. Fantastic and suits me to a TEA lol

Hi everyone, I'm allowing several newbies because a few did contact me with their references, but would like all other newbies to PM me with their references as well, if you haven't already done so!

Thanks for joining the swap, things are looking good so far!

Hi all! I am so excited to get the swapping started! I do not drink coffee or tea but I do LOVE me some hot chocolate or anything hot with chocolate or mint in it! Happy Swapping everyone!

Raydance, your pkg. will be going out in tomorrow's mail, and since it has a long way to travel, I hope it will have a speedy delivery. I've tried to select tea that wouldn't be as common in your area (and how lucky you are to live in a place that has such yummy tea available. I have a fondness for oolong especially, and for lapsang souchong, but really, I am fond of pretty much all tea.) Hope you'll enjoy yours when it arrives!


raydance 04/ 9/2007 #

Wow, that was quick! Thanks for letting me know Lene, and if you're interested in swapping for some Chinese tea, let me know too. =p Singapore is a predominantly Chinese society, so Chinese tea is cheap and plentiful. laughs

EVRAE, your package is on the way!

user6452 04/14/2007 #

Baglady, the envelope arrived this morning, and I just love the wonderful bookmark! Thanks so much! I will enjoy the tea, too, as I have a fondness for Stash teas.

frankcheez 04/18/2007 #

I'm almost done with my craft part of it. Will be finishing and shipping in the next few days.

raydance 04/20/2007 #

Lene, your items were received in the mail the other day, thank you SO MUCH for the generous selection of teas, and the little crochet teamats! I feel almost loathe to use them for fear of getting them dirty!

user6452 04/21/2007 #

LOL, please, use 'em. They're nothing fancy, and I think (I hope!) they'll be fine to use and wash. Glad you like them!

Ladies, I let someone slip through my net, and to my horror, there is now a deleted account in our list of swappees. She's marked as sent, so it might be that she has sent out, but in the event that she hasn't, I might have to call in on our resident swap angel. =) Just keeping everyone informed. Could the person who has her as a swap buddy contact me please? Thanks.

raydance 04/26/2007 #

Dear Roberta, your package went out today! Hope it makes its way to you soon!

How do I leave a rating?

just wanted to let you know i received your package today. thanks for the coffee instead of tea, can't wait to try them. and i used to cross stitch along time ago too. but my husband noticed it was much like sewing a button back on a shirt so i had to give it up!

blessings, roberta
