Details of swap:
(copied from fabulous organizers of previous rounds, SonjaBoo and Smmarrt)

Many mixed-media artists out there have fun with Happy Mail swaps so lets bring another one to Craftster! For this swap, youll beautifully decorate an envelope (something around a 6x9ish) in the way of your choice paint it, mix media it up, add fabric, whatever inspires you. (Remember, whatever you do, you need to leave white spots or labels for your addresses!) Then, youll include FIVE small but handmade (or hand altered) embellishments or crafting doo-dads for your partner to enjoy.

This is a low-pressure swap, with the only requirement being that you must send along five hand-made or hand-altered goodies, rather than store-bought. (Let's keep this inexpensive!)

What are crafting doo-dads, you ask? Here are some ideas!
Handmade stickers, cards, altered tags, crafty ephemera, glue stencils, inchies, altered paperclips, ATCs, hand-cut stencils, paper feathers, paper flowers, altered buttons, etc. (And many other ideas not even mentioned here! Use your imagination, as long as someone can craft with it and you made it.)

Here are a few links for inspiration!

Ooh, the last round was fun!

(psst, LimeRiot-- you might want to change where it says "sent to organizer/smmarrt" right before the questionnaire!)

Ah! Good catch, thanate!! Thank you.

I only participated in round 1 of this swap but it was so much fun. I'm still hoarding a few of the crafty doo-dads that loves2experiment made for me Smiley.

Keep those questionnaires comin'! I'll be doing a round of adds later today so don't be worried if you don't see the swap in your profile right away.

I recently signed up for Pipsticks (https://www.pipsticks.com/) - it's a sticker subscription service Smiley. Perfect for Happy Mail!! I hope I get some new stickers in time for send outs!

I just did a round of adds for all the questionnaires in my inbox.
