I sent today!!! And, I went to buy one last thing before sending!!! GUESS WHERE I WENT???

After all... we're getting close to Day of the dead!!!


What else could a Mexican girl send???

It is called "la feria del alfeñique" which is only open during october (all over the country) and there you can buy sugar & chocolate skulls, decorations, and much more typical candies which are related to the day of the dead ofrendas and celebrations.

Hope you like them! (they're tiny because they're heavy and I neeeded to keep the package under 1 pound and I was already sending something kind of heavy)

Swap name: Music that changed my life swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: malisha
Sign-up date range: August 25- September  4
Date to send item by:  October 15
Limited to a certain number of people? no
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No



Have you ever said Im never gonna be the same after listening to a song? Do you have a special song that makes you go on when everything seems wrong? Or do you think music has made you who you are now? Is there any singer that changed your life?  If yes, this swap is for you.

You will have a list of your partners inspirational songs/artists and you should try to listen to it and try to understand why it is so important for your partner. You can send a link so its easier for your partner  to listen to it.
 
The idea is to take your partners bands/singers/songs  as an inspiration and craft something special for them, and who knows, maybe youl l find a new world when listening to your partners music.
As for crafting. You can send either one large item and two smalls or 2 medium items, just be sure to talk to your partner about this.

And to make it a low stress swap well have a loooong crafting time why?? Because this will be my last swap for the next 2 and a half years (med student life) and I really want a lot of people to join and a lot of people to enjoy it!
