Okay, Tell me what you think.

An organic/earth-friendly/non-consumer swap.

Hand made papers made of old tid bits, Cloth pads, Re-con clothing, ect.

Basicly anything to reduce the need to support the big guy.

I'm not brave enough to try to host a swap but if anyone likes this idea enough I'd be thrilled for someone to steal it and start a swap!  (As long as I'm told so I could join  Grin)


Feedback very much welcome!

I'm not quite brave enough to host it either but I like the idea a lot!  I've been wanting to have a go at making my own paper so this would be a good reason to do it!
Could also include art made out of rubbish?  Cards made of collages from old newspapers/magazine/wall paper?

Good idea  Grin

Totaly!  Anything re-con or of the sort.  I didn't even think about actual art.  The card idea would be great.  You could make hand made stationary and make a stap for the pages.  Or a journal all hand made, that'd be killer.
Good thinking!  Great idea.   Cheesy

Thank you.

i think there may have already been a swap similar to this in the past -- it was called the thrift store swap or something like that.  maybe search for that in the old swap threads to get some inspiration?

and organizing isn't so bad, you should give it a try!  Cheesy  there's info on how to organize a swap here: http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html#anchor4

Hey, swap organizing is NO SWEAT! you should just do it, and ask the Mods (or even me, even tho I have only organized 2 swaps I feel I can answer basic Q's) Just give your swap a groovy name, like the ANTI-CONSUMERISM swap, or THE ECO-FRIENDLY swap, or EVERY DAY IS EARTHDAY swap... they have all been done, but you can put your twist on it and go for it!!! I think you have a swell idea... it is kinda like all those swaps already done, but altogether into one! Reduce, re-use and recycle... Oooo THE 3 R's swap!!! or reduce, re-use, recycle, or re-vamp so the 4 R's swap!!! DO IT DO IT! I would totally join this swap too! Smiley

I could organise but it would have to wait until the end of month for sign ups as I have exams, work and a couple of swaps on the go until then.

That timing is perfect for me, I am finishing the organization of a swap, and have one more to finish, then a side project that is almost done, so they will all be pretty much done by the time this one is ready! Figure out a name and get it in the subject line so people get interested!!! Yay!

Good idea- I have a feeling I may go with the "4 Rs swap" if you don't mind me pinching your idea?!

But now I'm going to bed as it's getting late here in the UK!

I'd be in on this one...I'm been repurposing a lot of my clothes I was planning on donating into bags and what not.
