This is a great idea, I have so much stuff that I use all the time!  I have a fantastic purse next to me right now that a craftster made...with a wallet in it from another craftster!

I use things I get in swaps all the time. Almost everything that I get complimented on ("I like your necklace", etc.) came from a swap. And I would be totally psyched to know that my items were still loved.

At this very second, I'm wearing a hat, tshirt, hoodie, socks, ring, and necklace that are all from swaps!  Its like that pretty much every day.

The bag I use everyday is from a swap, and the wallet in there, and the drawstring project bag holding my knitting, and the little tissue pouch, and the keyring, and the book cover on my book. 

Yeah, pretty much all the cool stuff I have came from swaps!  The only thing I ever buy is yarn...everything else comes in the mail from awesome craftsters!  (thanks again everyone, you know who you are!!!)

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

I have all of the things I recieved. On heavy or less heavy rotation

But there's one item I got sitting in my room. It's the Malcolm reynolds doll I got in the firefly/serenity swap. I think it's sooooo cute. I'm in a science fiction, firefly based, larp and took the doll with me. Everyone wanted to take pictures with it Tongue

OMG I Would LOVE a Malcolm doll...Which reminds me that one of my goals today was to search for Jayne's hat and put it in my wists.

I am two months new to swapping but I use the things I got. People ask me if I made what I am wearing because they know I love making stuff. I tell them, "Nope, some one made it for me!" and I feel so special knowing that some one put love into an item just for me.

I recently wore a pair of earrings to a final exam because it was in one of my power colors. I felt more confident and pretty because of something so small.

I haven't had these as long as some of you; but my fairy shrine from the fairytale, fantasy RND2 swap and the wolf/forks pillow from the twilight rnd6 swap are special to me and live in my family room. The Cullen crest banner,from same swap and the HP spell sign from HP HBP swap decorate my library area.

I have aprons from HP HBP and the pioneer swap that are hanging in my kitchen ready to be used. I guess I am on my way to rebuilding my apron collection. I left some at a job years ago.

I have jewelry from several rounds of the sweat shop swap that get worn regularly. My handmade stuff is my favorite!

I also have some cute hats that get worn too!

I have a lot swap items in my kitchen and when my freinds come over and compliment me on these things they assumed I crafted myself, I get such a kick out of tell them "someone made that for me" followed by a loooong story about how awesome craftster is and more details about all the great people I've met and crafted for..I think i need to PM beckster right now Smiley
