I participated in a swap where we followed our partners through social media and bought things off their Etsy favorites site.
My partner was Katherine Lau, she has now received her package, here's what I sent her:
A bunch of floating flower candles, she said she liked flowers and bright colors.
Collage-O-Rama. I really liked this, I almost bought one for myself.
Charm Emporium, very cute.
Ashley Elaine Designs, also very cute.
I thought it was pretty cool that she makes papercuts, way back when I started doing art, papercutting was the second thing I learned to do, right after origami and before stamping.
My partner was Brandi from Lipstick and Tractors, here's what she sent me:
I liked this swap, except for the fact that I had to pay separate shipping on all my Etsy purchases. We were all supposed to spend $25 for the gifts, thankfully the shipping wasn't too bad, but I hate paying shipping. I decided I could handle it because someone was doing the same for me. I might bow out of more swaps in the future, I've been trying to save money and sadly spending money on swaps does not save it. Maybe, if I could find more ones where I get to make things...
