Good grief this has been hard work to organise and I now have *total respect* for people who manage those enormous craft swaps with about 400 participants!

Anyhow it’s all the matching up of partners for the scrap swap is done now, and everyone should have had an email from me telling you who you are sending to – if you haven’t had an email PLEASE get in touch asap.  Partners have been assigned randomly and bear in mind that you aren’t sending to the same person that you are receiving from…!

Here’s the final list, with blogs (where you’ve given me the details – again, if I’ve missed something, let me know!) – it would be lovely if people could have an explore, and pop round and visit other folks’ blogs.

Speaking of swaps – I owe a big thank you to Lisa of noodleBubble blog for organising a Heart swap for Valentines day. I’ve had a lot of fun with it – my recipient Clare lives in Florida, but by utter coincidence we discovered that she grew up here in North Staffordshire……spooky….! Here’s what I made for Clare – no one can say that I didn’t stick to the heart theme!

Heart Pouch

30.01.2011 - couple of brooches made for a Valentines swap

I just heard yesterday that she’d received her parcel, and that she liked everything. Then this morning I received a gorgeous parcel of goodies from Hannah of Bubble Bay Designs. I am so delighted with everything (there was some chocolate too, but that didn’t make it to the photography stage ;-)), it’s wonderful. Hannah has done some blog stalking and noticed my love of grey and yellow, and Denyse Schmidt, and has made me this glorious heart shaped pouch.

Lovely swap goodies from Bubble Bay designs


Thank you so much Hannah – it’s so lovely! February is turning out to be a pretty cheery month after all.

Happy swapping everyone!
