Title: Weekend Trick or Treat Swap
Post by: kittykill on August 12, 2019 10:35:49 AM
We did this a few years ago and it was a blast. You have a weekend to fill a small tote or bucket with one small crafted item (or more if you want), candy and other treats. You get your partner on Friday and mail out Monday.


Here is a link to the one we did before:

And the gallery:

For timeline I am thinking September would be good. Maybe the second weekend in September for send outs?

I've been feeling a little burnt out on hallowe'en swaps this year, but maybe just a little one... ;)

As much as I love the idea, we are going to renfest this weekend, second weekend of Sept, so I wouldn't be able to do it!

If we did it, it would probably be the first weekend of October.

Iím ready! One thing that gets me on swap questionnaires is the ďwhat can you makeĒ part. Iím always like umm I dunno. Itís hard because there isnít a particular thing that I do. A couple things I donít do are yarn crafts or jewelry, but other than that Iíll try about anything. Anyone else have this issue?

I'm ready too! I have been ready all year, haha. And yes, "What can you make" can be a toughie. I will try anything except knitting or illustration, I heartily suck at both.

Following... things are a bit nutty, but this might be low-key enough...
