I am always so grateful when someone sends me stuff from overseas, because postage is expensive, and when it is a givers and needers swap it is especially kind. I had an awful day at work yesterday and so today was a but subdued. It had completely slipped my mind that I had put my work address on this swap and I got this. major thrill!!!

fortunately I have my own office because there was much squeeing

So much paper and some stunning ones. I can't pick my favourites, there will be many many beautifully bound books from these.

and if that HUGE stack of paper (seriously over an inch thick)

there was this

inside!!! I love it,

and it is reversable, Did you make this Audio? how??? it is brilliant

and I saved the best for last, although this was the first thing I opened. As you might know I have a total flamingo obsession. My bedroom is filling with flamingo art, this is going to be added in pride of place. I love love love this. Audio said she had this knocking around for ages, It could have been made for me!

Thank you so much Audio for your generosity and for really brightening my day

Details of swap:
Welcome to the Givers and Needers swap! This is round 14!

Is your stash invading your craft space, over flowing your drawers, and pouring out of the closets? If so, this swap is for you!


Do you need supplies to be able to try new crafts, complete those pinterest projects, or refill your empty craft room? If so, this swap is for you too!


If you have an overabundance of craft supplies and are feeling the need to purge, here are the details you need to read!

Givers will send a box of craft supplies to a needer so they can continue their love for crafting.
In return, you will receive a small crafted item as a "thank you" made with love from your needer.
The giver can choose the size and amount of supplies they send, just make sure to send enough to help the needer without breaking your budget. Send something you'd be happy to receive.

This is a great way to destash and help a fellow crafter who may for various reasons need some supply help.


If you have more cobwebs than craft supplies in your closets, here are the details you need to read!

Needers will receive a box of supplies from a very generous giver.  In return, you will send a thank you gift that is the equivalent of a small. The thank you gift does not need to be crafted from the supplies the giver sends. The minimum is a small, but feel free to spoil your giver!

At this time, I prefer to only take applications for Givers OR Needers (no signups for both groups,
until I see just how involved the matching is going to be!  I may put out a call if I have room for
more of one than the other, so stay tuned  Smiley )


^Please put G&N 14 in all PM subjects.
^Please mark all PM's with Approval, Sent, Received
^I reserve the right to refuse ANYONE based on late sending, history of incomplete packages, etc, etc.
^You must have swapped at least once before to join this swap as a needer.

Should your needs be something that no givers are offering, you may be contacted about changing your questionnaire.
Should you be offering something that no needers need, you will contacted to change your questionnaire.

Please be sure to take pictures and post items that you receive. If you do not have a camera, please PM your partner and ask them to take pics for you!
DC# are needed for ALL packages! If you are sending from or to someone outside of the USA please keep your receipt. I will need a copy of it once you send!

Please go through your stash or your needs well before filling out the questionnaire, this way, you know exactly what you have to give and what it is you need; itll be a great help when partnering time comes.

No one likes to be flaked on, so please only sign up if you can complete this swap.
