Some artsy friends and I (11 of us, total) completed a craft swap on the theme "Everyday Life" (spend about 4 hours of time making a craft that would enhance your craft swap buddy's day-to-day life). We filled out surveys beforehand with likes, dislikes, daily routines, things we'd like to learn or try, etc.
Today (3/21) was swapping day! Wow--I've decided I have some pretty cool friends...
Art notecards Meredith C. made for Rachael! She's planning to use them as wall art--I don't think she can stand the thought of parting with them. (Meredith, you didn't get to see Rach open hers either, but as you can see, it was love at first sight.)
Rachel made this little gem for Mischon: It's a fabric envelope with Emily Dickinson poem, nature notecards--AND, a recycled book made into a little purse, which served as the wrapping for it all!
Mischon made this charming wall art for Meredith M. to hang up in her new apartment. :) The leaves and flower buds are made from buttons, and the trunk and grass are hand-embroidered.
Meredith M. made these super cute notecards for Bethany, who is an avid craft swapper! She'll be sure to put these to use...I love the vintage owl print peeking through.
Mischon and Rachael treated us to these adorable sunflower and owl cupcakes (which sadly got smooshed in transport!). They were every bit as delicious as they appear!!
Here is half of the group, with our goods! Let's do it again?
