PRIVATE SWAP: MissTopaz & ArtyBeth3

S0 i was looking at the swaps and found this cute sounding one - Flower Note Cards

The rules for it were -

      Send 3 flower themed note cards to each of your 3 partners. There can be other things on the cards, but they must have flowers on them.
     They should be store-bought and be “every day cards,” meaning blank on the inside. It’s ok if the outside has a “thinking of you” or “hello” message (no occasion/holidays or thank you cards).
     On one of the 3 cards you send to each partner, you will write a note to your partner. The other 2 cards will be for your partners to use. Please make these 2 cards different. Please include envelopes for the cards your partners will use.

I asked is newbies were aloud and sadly got told no.  Oh fudge monkeys i said.  But I later got a message from the host asking if I would like to do the swap but a one on one.  I was all in.

I went through my cards and guess what.  A theme popped out, Poppies.  I grabbed 4 cards.  Taking on i wrote my note to Miss Beth.

After writting the note, I thought how to i add a bit of fun personally to this for Beth.  Off to her profile i went.  Penguins!  She loves penguins.  Ok time to make a cute envelope.  (yes the blue foam piece is there to hide her addy.  I know mine is there  oh well^^)

Very cute if I do say so


Pink and Pretty

Send me a Tote and a Note #3

I have been having a blast at swap bot.

Today i am going to share my first Swap.  It was called - Send me a Tote and a Note #3

This was a huge swap, there are 154 people in the swap.

The rules where very simple,  a tote & a note.  With this i was off to the store.  I found this way to cute bunny iron on.  I had to use it.  Also while at the store they had started to discount Easter items.  I went down the row and saw his tiny pink tote and right next to it were pink glitter buttons.  And a pink theme was born.

Well now the tote was done time to wrap it up.

 I am so happy with how it turned out.  Its something i would love to get and i hope my partner will^^  I can not wait to get mine!

Lets get this party Started!

Hi everyone. Miss Topaz here

I just found this wonderful site called Swap-bot.

Did you ever do pen pals or scouts, and you would send a thing of sticker of something small you had or made? This is basically that but on a whole new level.

People set up swaps. Now the swap could be themed of about a million kind of things. You find one you like and sign up.

"Do you like sending and receiving snail mail? Do you like writing letters, making crafts, or putting together fun packages? You should try swapping! Swap-bot is a online service that organizes group swaps and a community of creative individuals. Swap-bot takes the hassle out of participating in group swaps by organizing all of the participant information and doing all of the partner assignments. On Swap-bot, you can host swaps, join swaps, and chat with other swappers from all over the world. Give it a try!"

I have my first swap made and ready to go. I can not wait!
