Freestyle Blog Swap!

Well hello my dear friends...I have been uming and arrring about the subject for this swap, and then (With and idea that my dear friend Ag suggested) I thought we should have a go at a Freestyle Blog Swap.

We all do and make , and like different things. I suppose I'm my most confident colouring in, with a little bit of basic crocheting thrown in, but I don't think there should be one theme, just something that your blog partner will like and something you are confident to do. So for example it could be a little box of things you have made (Now remember you don't have to spend much...don't spend anything!) or maybe one big thing...maybe something like a cushion or anything!

The main thing is that you consider what you think you partner will like, and just make it pretty!

Hope thats ok?

Oh and if we end up with an odd number, I will post 2 swaps (Fingers crossed anyone enters now!)

So If anyone fancies a go, please could you leave me a message here by Monday 13th April, and I will randomly swap people together.... and to hopefully aim to post swaps off sometime in the week beginning 4th May?

Lots of love
Sam xx

ag said...

Count me in! lalala Its a great idea to make something what someone else'll like

Lavender hearts said...

I would love to have a go! However, I have to add a slight caveat to that - please can I be paired with someone in the US or UK? I just recently got paired with someone in another swap in Oz, the postage was SO expensive and I've just got the package back and undelivered (uncollected!). As you can imagine, I'm not best pleased!

Lovely idea! How exciting! :-)

Floss said...

Wow - I'd like to join in, please! (I followed Mel's link, so I hope you think that was a good idea). I'm in France, so bear that in mind, pehaps, if there's a problem about postage.

Jemm said...

Yes, I'd love to! I've never done one and I've wondered how they start/work.

Hollypop's said...

Count me in too Sam, sounds like fun not having a theme.
Take care.

Lyn said...

Count me in, I have never done one before so may need the 'swapping for dummies' advice!

Bobo Bun said...

This sounds a lovely swap, so I'd love to join in please. When I next post I'll add a link if that's ok.

Sarah said...

Rubys mamma x said...

Hey Sam, id like to take part please-can sometimes be hard with swaps to find out what people like, the last person i was paired with had hardly written any posts so it was just a guess!
Love kirsty xxx
