I recently signed up for a Valentine swap with fellow bloggers. The items that we will be swapping are to have a Valentine's theme and one item is to be handmade. For my fellow swapper, I've made a decorative penny rug pillow in various shades of pink and red, and also a pink wool felt heart ornament. I bought a heart shaped candy dish and am thinking about doing a small stitchery item to add to the box. I've never done a swap before so I hope the items that I plan on including in my swap box will be enjoyable for my swap partner. I'm excited about getting my package from the person who has my name. In this swap, you don't swap with the name of the person you're given. Someone else has my name and will send me a package of stuff. I hope to be in more swaps as I find them on various blogs.
We're expecting snow this weekend here in Indiana so I should be able to get some crafting done this weekend. I've also absolutely positively got to get my craft room cleaned this weekend. Things have gotten out of control. I need to have some organization so I can decide which crafts I'm going to work on next. I'm thinking about signing up for the Wool Crazy Sew Along. I'll need to get the Wool Crazy book so I can follow along with the others in the sew along. I just have to decide if I'm going to join.
I'd also like to see if I can figure out how to list some of my handmade pillows and wool felt ornaments for sale on my blog. Everything on my blog is in a straight line. I've been told that you can click on pictures, etc. and drag them over to the sidebar. I can't get mine to do that. I see other blogs that are so cool and I'm aiming for that.
I'll post a picture of the items that I'll be sending in the Valentine swap. Everything has to be mailed by Monday, February 1. It should be fun!!
