October CL Swap!

It’s been awhile since the last swap and I know I’m ready to change up some of my stash! And here’s where I go into info-mercial mode:

  • Are you tired of working with the same fabrics, papers, and yarn?
  • Is your stash a little “blah?”
  • Could your fabric use a fresh face in its mix?

Well, here’s the answer! Join the Craft Leftovers Swap and release 1 package of your goodies into the world and receive one in return!

Sign up on Swap Bot from now until October 17th.

Deadline to send out is October 31st!

{have you joined the swap? grab this button, add it to your sidebar, and link it to the swapbot page}

Here are the details:

One of the hardest parts of not acquiring more craft stuff is resisting the desire for new inspiring craft supplies. Get inspired while continuing to work from what’s on hand–just work from someone else’s stash!

The Craft Leftovers Swap allows you the chance to trade in some of your stash for someone else’s! You don’t gain “more,” you just swap for some new inspiration!

Join me in my mission not just to destash, but to find wonderful uses for all our cast offs.

:: While everyone is encouraged to participate, do not do so unless you know for sure you can send out your package on time. If you have swaps under your belt, your rating must be 4.9 stars or higher on average.

:: This is an international swap, so make sure you have enough spare change to send a package to Japan if needed. Who knows, in return you may just get a sweet package from your favorite part of France. I do not plan on having a region specific swap any time soon. It’s quite a bit of work hosting a swap and so I want to include everyone I can in the few I do host (quarterly: July, October, January, and April).

:: You will send one envelope of your leftover goodies to one partner. I cannot assign more than one partner to any one swap member, so please do not ask. I’ve tried. Can’t do it.

:: Each envelope must be 6×9″ – cram it full, all you can fit but don’t go larger, we are doing an equal trade.

:: You can send any kind of craft supply – stash, recycled, vintage, or leftovers, DO NOT Purchase anything for this swap.

:: Check your partner’s profile to see if they have a crafting preference. And as such, only swappers with completed profiles will be allowed to participate. If you are new, make sure to add a few details about the kind of crafting you like to do.

:: All supplies must be in good shape – no stains, holes, or funky smells.

Not sure what to do with little bits of this and that? Check out the project archive for all kinds of ideas, inspirations, tutorials, and projects on what to do with leftovers!

Happy crafting & swapping!
