Maybe this is a bit "out there" but I've seen swaps like this before, and they looked like alot of fun...

I, for example, have a bathroom that is ocean themed, but very specific. It's hard to find stuff to go in it. I also have a kitchen that is retro 50s red and aqua themed. I would LOVE to get some crafted stuff for them! Someone else might have a room that is all black and white, or a craft room that has a specific color scheme, etc.

Each person could make 3-5 items for their partner's room (or rooms) of choice, following the room theme. Examples: embroidered towels/dishcloths, picture frames, jewelry organizers, soap saver, decorated clock, recipe card box...The possibilities are endless!

Anyone else think a swap like this would be fun?

I really like this idea! My rooms have really specific color schemes and themes, and I don't usually like asking people to craft for the rooms because I feel like I'm being too picky/demanding and telling them exactly what to make. But it sounds like that would be the point of this swap!  Cheesy I'll keep an eye on this thread.

I'd totally love to participate! *getting addicted to swapping* My room is rococco/victorian themed and getting stuff like that in middle Europe can be a real pain. On the other hand, I love also other styles so I'd love to craft something completely different for someone with another type of room Smiley.

Just piping back in to say that I'm glad you all like the idea...but I unfortunately can't organize a swap right now (possibly ever) because I have too much else going on. If someone else wants to offer to organize, that would be great!

I would totally be in. I would even be willing to organize it depending on when we decide to do it. It would be my first time organizing. I think I will be able to after my 2 partners receive their packages I am shipping out today, then I will have 3 swaps under my belt, plus another one done in a week and a half.

I'd also love to join! I'm working on a forest themed living/craft room and a general natural bathroom... but black, tan, grey, and white colors (and silver fixtures).
