Hello! How have you been? Goodness I did not mean to be away from my blog for so long! I really need to start blogging more, I miss my blog! We just always seem to have so much going on around here, that it ends up being so much easier to just use instagram to keep in touch. But I really will try to be present here more. '
Speaking of instagram, a little while ago I was asked to participate in an egg carton swap. It was a little different for me, as I did not really know the swap leader, but I would have felt bad saying no. It was to be a swap with spring related crafting items in an egg carton. It was after Easter, so not neccessarily an Easter swap, just spring. The swap leader randomly assigned partners by drawing names, so that was also a bit different for me, as I did not know my partner at all, and wasn't sure that we had the same styles either. So, at first I was a bit stumped as to what to send. Her instagram feed did not show any crafting at all, and her questionare only stated that she liked pastels, butterflies, and bunnies...So, this is what I came up with.
I used some pink and blue plastic eggs left over from Easter, and little cupcake wrappers in the sections where the goodies would not fit inside an egg. I did know my parter liked vintage items, so I tried to incorporate as many vintage items as I could.
I hope she liked it all! It's hard to do swaps with people you don't really know as I always want to make sure they like the items sent! I love to put together packages, but I think I will stick to swaps where I know the recipient and partners are paired with similar styles and likes. :)
I'll do some more cathcing up in the next day or so. I am going to be a vendor for the first time at a artisans makers mart at the end of this month, so I have been crazy getting ready for that. I'll share more info on that and some peeks into what I plan to take to it soon!
What have you been up to? Any summer crafting happening at your house?
