Recent Craft Swaps

So this year, I've been doing a few craft swaps I thought I'd share what I've made and received so I have a record I've what I've made and received.

Valentine's Swap

The first swap I did was a valentine's swap, it was a pretty simple swap where you had to make a small item - I choose a couple of pouches that I made from some scraps I had in my scrap bin that fitted into the whole valentines theme.  I also sent some chocolates and a card, as that was part of the swap, but I didn't take any photos of those.

 I received a tote bag as part of the swap, which has become a pretty great lunch bag.

I also got some popping candy, the packaging was super cute! I also received a sweet card and some lip gloss.

Box of Sunshine Swap

The basic premise of this swap is to fill a box of stuff to bring some sunshine into your swap partners life.

I didn't really take a lot of photo's of what I made, so I took these photos from the link on Craftster where my partner shared what I sent.

I made a tote bag, a drawstring pouch, a patchwork scarf and bow, and I sent a bunch of extras.

 I received a lovely package of sunshine from Japan, including this Studio Ghibli inspired hoop, some trims, Guedetama glasses cleaner and seal-able bags, phone charms and some lollies.

I'm currently finishing up a Galentines, Easter Basket and Woodland Swap - so a lot of crafting to do in the next few weeks!

Everything is so cute! The pouches are gorgeous, and I love the print of the tote bag. The little parcels are lovely, too. There's something so nice about putting together (and receiving) gift boxes / hampers with lots of little things; they're so much better than one expensive gift IMO. xx
