Swap Shop but without Noel Edmonds!!

There always seem to be so many swaps going on in blogland and since I've been a blogger, I've taken part in quite a few.  I love them - the fun of 'meeting' a new blogger and getting to know them, the hunting out/ making of pressies for them and then the excitement of waiting for your parcel from them to arrive.

At the moment I'm signed up to 3 swaps (see below) - some of the bloggers I am familiar with and one is a new one to me (so I have been reading back and getting to know them).

I've been rummaging through my supplies this week and adding some more bits - some will be used in swaps and others for pressies for forthcoming birthdays;

Might use some of this fabric - might not ;)

Might use some of this ribbon - might not ;)

Might even raid my button tin - again I might not ;)

My 3 current swaps;

Organised by Em's Shabby Shack

Organised by Crafty Helen
Paired with Tilly Rose

Organised by Sarah @ Red Gingham
Paired with Traci @ My handmade happiness

Don't forget about the bloggy meetup in Southwold in June - all invited - it's a meeting in Suffolk for Bloggers - not just for bloggers from Suffolk ;)

I shall end now on a high note - Little Son passed his Grade 2 Violin exam (only just, but it was pass). Now means he needs to start practising and learning more stuff for his Grade 3 sometime next year.

Well done to little son. I'd love to join you for the meetup, but its my best friend's wedding that weekend so I'll be down south.

Way to go DS2! Make sure you work on those scales! ;-)

Swapping is great fun isn't it?

Pink Milk said...

Wow, lots of swaps! I really fancied the 'good enough to eat' one but was away at the crucial pairing-up bit.

Well done Little Son, that's brilliant! Being so completely unmusical myself, I am always in deep admiration of anyone who can play anything!

Congratulations to your son - you must be a proud mummy.
I also love swaps and have some super things in my home from various swaps

CraftyHelen said...

I too am starting to think about my swaps. Have been looking for some pinny inspiration. Am so aiming to be organised and not leave it to the last minute (unrealistic but I have to try)! Well done to little son.xx

I am struggling to actually get my head round the fact that I am going to have to post all my lovelies in 'Good enough to eat swap!' Wish i had got 2 of everything now! Not to worry, Tilly Rose deserves them, I am lucky to have her as my partner in crime. x

Wow you are a busy girl! Am also in the Apron swap but after 2 other recent ones had to give myself a breather....but I'll be back 'cos they are great fun.
Congratulations to little son. Didn't he do well!

Thankyou for your invite to the Suffolk Bloggers Meet at Southwold. I would love to come, but am unable to make that date. I hope you all have fun though and I will try to make the next one! xx

You are braver than me, I have yet to pluck the courage up to do a swap. I will do one soon I am sure :-)

Pea Green Kitty said...

Hehe!...the title made me laugh (do you know, my mum has always had a crush on Noel Edmonds...god help her!)
I am currently taking part in my first little swap, its all so exciting!
