The awesome Little Good Things swap is wrapping up and I'm thinking we could all still use a bit more cheer to get us through the February blahs. What do you think, is it time for another round of positivity? I am ready, SO READY!


image found uncredited on pinterest

The last round was one small item for your partner and one for yourself but people seemed quite challenged by the project-for-self part so I would make that entirely optional with an invitation to share in the gallery only if you wanted to. We could make the project a medium, that seems to be what a lot of people ended up making anyhow. And participants could choose more than one partner if they wanted a bit more crafting oomph.
So, a small-medium item, a nice card/note and a little extra treat sound good?

Round 1

The fabulous, amazing, awe-inspiring, incredibly positive and uplifting R-1 gallery.

Love this idea and the previous gallery is amazing! I'm trying to do different swaps this year and i've never done one like this! I'm just doing one swap at a time, so if this falls after i send for the color swap I'm definitely interested.

Mail out for the Box of Color swap is March 9. I was thinking of running sign-ups for this soon but could delay a bit. How about sign ups from Thursday Feb 20- Friday Feb 28, send outs March 14 for a crafting time of 2 weeks. It is only a card, a small treat/extra & one sm-med item so under 3 hrs total crafting time (the sm-med measure can be confusing but small usually = under 2 hrs, med = under 3). How does that sound?

Some of you spoiled your partner mercilessly last time but the requirements are very simple & easy, y'all negotiate more. I will include a question in the Q about that & pair you accordingly.

*Omigosh* @ all the lovelies in the gallery!  Definitely interested but alas am dealing with multiple schedules and numerous appointments that will have me going three different directions at once.  I will Fake Swap this one and lurk enviously in the background.

JS are you sure you can't find a couple of hours to make a little something happy for somebody? I bet you can, I know you want to Smiley
The gallery from last round is really amazing, most people made way more than required. It really is meant to be a small swap though, if you think you'd like to join please do!

Somehow I missed it last time, and YES! I want to do it this time.
Happy to have you zcrafter!

Remember folks, you can indicate in your questionnaire that you'd like to keep this swap on the smaller sides without a plethora of extras. I will pair you up nicely, I promise Smiley.

Wonderful! So happy you are all interested. Last round was an absolute delight, a gorgeously sunny spot in miserable old Feb/March.
