Sick & Swapping

I have been making cards and gift tags all week. This is my mess...

Ugh! I feel horrible. Early in the week my boyfriend got sick. Now I am sick. All I want to do is crawl into a dark place and hibernate.

I manged to get all my orders and swaps finished, I just need to take them to the post office on Monday. I signed up for so many swaps this year. I think I sent out a total of 20 something handmade cards (swaps, not family and friends) an ornament, and two packages. A few of them were international. One of the packages was sent to the Philippines, and I had cards sent to Belgium, Australia, and Germany.

So far I have received only one card, but I am waiting patiently for the others.

I have a few more swaps coming up but those don't need to be sent out until the end of next week. Three lip balm swaps, and a winter package swap.

While I prefer swaps that are hosted by blogs that I follow, I have found a website that is only for swaps and I love it! You can search for the type of swaps you want to join or -after completing 5 swaps- you can make your own.

Just click on the image above an join.

Do you have a blog that is hosting swaps? I would love to know about it!

I plan on hosting a Valentines Card & Treat Swap next month, so look out for that!


  1. I used to belong to a message board that was about Polymer clay, and they had a section for hosting swaps. I always loved doing them, but I don't work in Polymer Clay anymore. So I was really happy to find Swap Bot, where I could participate in all kinds of swaps. I overextended myself the first couple of months though, and while I don't regret doing the swaps, I regret the amount of mailing I did. It can get quite expensive.

But I still manage to find everything somehow. Beats me how but I do lol. Anyway i wish you a speedy recovery. Rose (rosedzi from swap bot)

  4. I had so much fun swapping Christmas fun with you! I loved all of it! My boys stole the hot cocoa right away and it was gone in half a second. I literally couldn't even get picture of it. :)


  5. My desk is very messy too! Every time I clean it, it seems to miraculously get messy after an hour or so ;)

    I joined a bunch of Christmas Swaps too and they're so much fun!

    Merry Christmas!
