Hey y'all,
Ok so, my sisters and I were talking about crafting the other day and came up with this swap idea. It is essentially a Christmas swap, with the whole Secret Santa thing, only everything you send is made of recycled materials or materials that cost £10 ($15) or less.

For example; Imagine a teenage girl called "Lucy" who really likes socks and Rabbits. I could use a pair of old socks to make her a toy Rabbit. This would be recycled and at very little cost. Cheesy

The swap would be one Small, one Medium and one Large with a crafting time between the end of September and Christmas, if we were to do it. If there is enough interest, I will organise, although as I have never done this before I would like to have a co-organizer to help. Also, I would not be participating; My mum has banned me from taking part in swaps. But I can organise them…

So, does it sound good? Any suggestions for improvements? Anyone willing to co-organize?

Thanks,
Rebecca.

In a similar way to other Secret santa swap, you don't know who is crafting for you; it isn't a partner to partner thing. We could do this in groups or something similar, or it could be scrapped all together. Whatever is easiest, as it isn't essential. Cheesy
