For the past 6 months I have participated in 3 crafty swap exchanges with babywearing parents in my area.
Every three months we are assigned a new ‘secret partner’ who we internet stalk, spend some time to make them something we think they will like, wrap it up, get together either close or from afar and cross our fingers and hope they love it.
Well I have LOVED the gifts I have received and I’ve had a pretty fun time with the gifts I’ve been making too.
This swap group has been a great source of personal satisfaction and forces me to make some time for my creative needs.
I’m sitting out of the next round only because there is a lot on my plate in the next few months, but you can bet your butt I’ll be ready to jump back into the next one!
