I recently took part in the Big Blog Card Swap. I no longer make cards to sell, but I still make them to send to family and friends so I decided I'd make a card for the swap. I forgot to take a photograph of the card I sent, if you'd like to see it it's here,
Here is a photo of the beautiful card I received. There is a label on the back to say it's made with recycled card, sheep poo paper and old catalogues. That's what I call recycling - brilliant!
It came from the lovely Sarah, aka Dottydaisies. Click here to see her Folksy shop.
The swap was organised by Sarah and Naomi. So a big thank you to them both. I think swaps are such a good idea and have taken part in a few.
The very first craft swap I did was many years ago (before blogs!) on a website called Cybergrrls. It was an online community for women/girls. There were lots of interesting forums including arts and crafts and someone organised a swap. I can't remember what I sent, (probably some cards) but I remember receiving some lovely earrings with little handmade glass discs. I just went to take a look to see if Cybergrrls still exists and it is apparently under reconstruction. It's an offshoot of Webgrrls International - something I didn't know about at the time. Briefly this is what they say about their mission. "Webgrrls' mission is to help women succeed in an increasingly technical workplace and world through networking, exchanging job and business leads, and teaching new skills."
