Craft Swap

I have been inspired by other blogs to host a craft swap. I want to see how it goes. So if you are crafty and love making things for your friends here is your big chance. What will happen is you will let me know (by commenting) that you want to be involved. Once I figure out how many people (from my area-ish) want to be involved we will pick a date for the swap and have a little girls night/swap at my house. So if you are crafty and want to participate let me know.

Some of you are saying...what is a craft swap anyway?! Well each person that decided to participate will need to make enough crafts for each of the other people who are invited (if there are 8 people then you need to make 8 of some craft that you like to make). Then we all get together and each person takes home of of each of the crafts by the other people involved.
So say there are 4 people (A, B, C and D)
A brings homemade jam
B brings homemade stationary
C brings quilted dish towels
D brings art
everyone goes home with one of each of the items brought be everyone else. Does this make sense? Now if 20 peole respond we will have to do more than one swap because making 20 items would be a bit much. Get back to me soon and let me know what you think.

i am absolutely in, though my craft will most likely involve food, as it's the only thing I do that's sort of crafty-ish.

Aww Em! This sounds like fun, but I think I am a little too out of the area-ish for this. I am bummed. I am not crafty, but I could have done something with food.

Love, Heather

I would love to be a part but I am never sure if my projects are crafty - depends on the number - I have a couple ideas.
