Summer Time And Crafty Swaps.
Yay we have finally had some warm weather…unfortunately I haven’t managed to see much of the British summer as I have been on HOLIDAY!
I have had a busy couple of weeks with mine and my gorgeous husbands wedding anniversary, he made me an amazing meal and we got the whole evening to spend together.
A few days after our anniversary we jetted off to Lanzarote with some friends for a week in the sun. It was sooooo nice and the holiday blues have well and truly kicked in. Coming back to torrential downpours in August hasn’t helped.
I am glad to be reunited with my favourite little ginger though. We spent the whole day yesterday with her sat on my knee doing crafts.
I didn’t get much done before the holiday as we had such a busy time beforehand but I am getting back on it this weekend. One of my good friends is due to have her little bambino in September and I am making an animal/farmyard mobile for his/hers nursery. I have also signed up to do the Strawberry craft swap here: http://www.popularcrafts.com/news/article/strawberry-craft-swap/10836
I have been assigned a swap partner and have kept updated with her twitter account and blog (http://bakingaitch.wordpress.com) I cannot delve into what I am making at the minute as I would like it to be a surprise but as soon as my strawberry swap partner has received her gift I will do a post.
This brings me onto my next subject… I did a pincushion swap back in June with a lovely lady called Becky who will hopefully soon be starting up her own little craft business. I received a beautiful little cupcake pin cushion and I LOVE it. I use it all the time it’s super cute.
Craft swaps are an amazing idea for networking with fellow crafters but also It’s so lovely to receive a handmade gift that somebody has put their heart and soul in to.
I might even look into setting up some kind of craft swap myself maybe at Christmas time, I bet it’s so much fun. You can do ANY type of craft.
Who would be interested?
