So, there is the website called Craftster. And it is amazing for crafters.
Craftster has many thing for many people. Craft tutorials, Craft-alongs, Craft challenges, and one of my favorites: Craft Swaps!
I recently finished up a swap and she received it yesterday. I also received my package yesterday!
Our theme was Energy Healing. I sent her:
along with more stuff inside the box and a crochet cozy for her cards. This was my first time wood burning and I LOVE it. I bought a wood burner just for this swap - it was pretty cheap though ~ $25.
Let me show you my FAVORITE thing she sent me.
It is a journal cover. And she made EVERY SINGLE stitch by hand. I absolutely love it. It is a cover that holds a regular sized journal inside - so I can replace the journal when I fill it up!
She also sent me more amazing goodies like, fabric:
and energy rocks!
and beads, and maracas for Zekey! (and more stuff, actually)
In the middle of doing a swap and putting so much time, money, and effort into a package (in the midst of chores piling up, projects accumulating, and money short) - I always vow that it will be my last - until I receive my package. It is so great to receive something you KNOW was made with the same time, money and effort. It kinda keeps calling me back.
But I am seriously going to wait a looooong while to do my next swap. Well, I will try at least ;).
