I really wish I had the conviction to say I can do this swap but honestly I have toothpicks holding my eyelids up most days  Undecided I will stalk though and peruse the end of swap book list  Cheesy

I still have the books my wonderful partner sent from last round! She had great taste in fiction.

Yeah it is a little limiting when you have a weight limit and a size limit  Undecided Like, I would LOVE to learn blacksmithing but I don't think sending an anvil through USPS would work very well  Cheesy But there are plenty of crafts that are unusual or Crafts from different countries I didn't know existed. But crafters could always send different patterns and techniques from a craft their partner already knows as well.

Here's a quick list from someone who works at a craft store:  Cheesy

-Tatting
-Paper Quilling
-Pyrography
-Calligraphy
-Fabric stenciling
-Bead weaving
-Clay scultping
-Metal stamping
-Wire wrapping
-Crochet/knitting
-Multi-media Art journaling
-Book making
-Resin
-Embossing
-Needle felting
-DIY Make up and Toiletries
-Perfume making
-Paper making
-Paint dot mandalas
-DIY Diamond Dot kits
-Rainbow loom
-Candle Making
-Leather crafting
-Anime/manga drawing

But unless you knew who your partner was, wouldn't pre-making the kit be jumping the gun?

I know there are a ton of crafts out there I haven't been able to learn (yet) but for one reason or another, they keep eluding me whether the excuse is time, space or fear of failure etc. I propose we have a swap where:
--We make a list of crafts we've always wanted to learn and our partner sends us a simple DIY kit within two weeks of pairing. 
--Then WE have two-three weeks to craft something with it and send it back to our partner!


It would be a somewhat longer swap, especially if we have overseas crafters, but so rewarding! And it's for the sake of crafting and knowledge, two things that I believe is time well spent on. PLUS...

...NO MORE excuses!!  Cheesy

  Whatcha'all think?

I totally love this idea! I'm always on the look out for crafts I can't do and always request them in swaps  Cheesy

This looks so fun  Cheesy I'm not really artistically inclined but I do love me some art! And I happen to work at a craft store.... And have an extensive Pinterest. I'm sure SOMETHING would spark my interest.
