First off..I have to say that the spring swap was sooo much fun!! I feel like everyone way out did themselves and I received tons of positive feedback!! It was neat to see all of the ladies different interpretations of the spring criteria..cool stuff.
Secondly..This swap is not about spending a bunch of money..in fact it is the exact opposite, we want to see how awesome you can be and how little you can spend, so use your imagination and HAVE FUN!!
And before we get to the good part..PLEASE don't hesitate to call/email me if you have a question (or even if you don't know what I'm talking about) I want as many people as possible to become Swappy Ladies and if you are having a hard time or need info on your gal PLEASE contact me!!!
Here is the fall challenge..I'm excited!!
#1 Repurpose a gently (or totally trashed) used item, something you find at a garage sale, thrift store or even your cupboard. Have a big box oh stuff sitting in the garage? Go through and see what you can find, then think outside the box. Have a old picture frame? Why not paint it up slap some cute scrap paper in it and call it art! Canning jars?? A trip to the craft store and bingo you have some fabulous fall soy candles. Old table cloth? Why not make it into a cute pillow for your bed or sofa? The point is to take something that has served it's purpose already and save it from the land fill!
2.One fallish type item..pick something that reminds you of fall, could be a cute pumkinish item, a bunch of fall leaves, a poem?. Any little thing your swappy heart's desire!! (And remember your swappy lady will love hearing about why that particular item reminds you of fall)
Don't spend a ton of cash and use your imagination! Remember we are not out to spend it up, we are out to be frugal and bless a fellow crafter on the way!
