Posts Tagged ‘Swap-bot’

I have enjoyed so many swaps lately, but I find myself gravitating toward the wonderful sewing projects that are often linked to fabulous tutorials.  There are some amazing people and projects to find online.

Here is an example of a fun swap I recently did using the Circle Zip Pouch Tutorial from Erin Erickson of Dog Under My Desk.  I love this pattern and the resulting pouch was fun to share.

Tea Swap

I have been loving Swap-Bot and all the fun swaps on there.  ATC’s are a bit addictive, so this time I decided I’d try something else I love… tea.  

Here are the cards and teas I sent to 3 different countries for a recent swap on The Bot.

Kiwi’s Etsy Love Swap #1

For a recent swap on Swap-Bot I had the pleasure of joining a talented group of Etsy shop owners to review their shops and post my findings here. Having looked through all these shops I decided to share a favorite item I found with a bit of a description. Enjoy some Etsy love!

Kiwivandal has a store with super cute cards and papercrafts (I can relate well=).  Here is a sampling of her sweet style with a Valentine listing she has up.  I especially like the 3-dimensional hearts.  So fun!  (Special thanks to her for taking the time to set up this swap =)

Mad About Pink’s shop is filled with all kinds of fabric goodness.  Her cute choices of fabrics have been used for buttons, rings, and these cleverly customized purse holder hooks.  What a great gift idea (hint, hint =)!

Miss Thundercat has a fun little shop with all kinds of Kawaii cuteness.  I love hand-made stamps, so I had to feature this sweet star that would make a great addition to any stampers library.

Funky Lindsay hosts an array of customizable items in her shop that can be used for special occasions or everyday reminders.  Most of her items are PDF’s that can be saved and used as often as the customer wishes (a great value for the price).  I love her maps that are listed for weddings, but could be used for most major events.  Whimsical and fun!

Provadia runs a unique shop on Etsy that houses all kinds of Blythe doll love.  This tote stands out in her shop due to the black and white photo.  I especially love the vintage feel of it.  A fun find!___________________________________________________________________________________

I recently found a new site that can be slightly addicting if allowed. Swap-Bot is a place for all kinds to enjoy sharing whatever interests them. I personally have fallen into the category of Avid Artist Trading Card Swapper. I love these little things!

Using up scraps from card-making (and I often have a lot), I can put together miniature pieces of art that will be shipped all over the globe for others to enjoy and in response I get their lovely little masterpieces to collect and enjoy myself. What fun!
Above you can see a photo of a Floral ATC I shipped to Northern Ireland. I crocheted the flowers for the front of this mini-card and even created a little envelope for it. (I made a second at the same time to send to my sister, for fun). The ATC below is a paper-pieced bird based on my swap partners profile stating that she likes birds and birdhouses and the colors light blue and yellow. (I also made duplicates of this for card fronts that will appear in my shop soon.)

Looking forward to the next little treasure that will appear in my mailbox!
