How about a swap along the lines of us focusing on the crafts we do best and related to a part of our life in which our awesomesauce is abundant.

Plus something for our partner to remind s/he that they are awesome too.

Ok muddy concept, Anyone come up with anything clearer?

I feel like there was a swap many years ago with a theme like that...and who doesn't want to feel awesome about themselves? I love it!

Maybe it could be that the q asks questions about yourself like:  your favorite accomplishments in your life, what your hobbies are, what you would still like to accomplish, etc...

Of course it would include the usual favorite colors, etc...

You could even include a small list of wants, to give your partner some direction.  For example, I love sewn tote bags, so perhaps my partner could include fabric that represents my favorite accomplishments and colors.  Things like that.

I hate crafting for myself so I wouldn't want to do this swap if I had to.

No it's not crafting for yourself, it's more the process of working on something you're awesome at and/or inspired by an area of life that you're awesome at, but you would still be sending it to your partner.

So I envisage maybe two smalls, one would be for your partner's themes and one would be 'about' you. So it would be a lucky dip type thing for your partner

So, I'm scrolling through old swaps, and this one here was cancelled and  seems like it is very similar in idea to what you are thinking craft-love wise.

There were several rounds of this Be Awesome swap.

Maybe there's a way to add in part of this 100 facts about me swap, and your partner could choose a fact about you they find awesome.

I feel like there's another one I just can't quite remember, but maybe a mashup of these perhaps?

BBM I think what I am reaching after is a bit of a mash up of all of those things. The purpose is to have a great swap, but also the process of doing it should remind ourselves that we are pretty awesome.

"Lucky dip"?, edelC?Huh?  Strikes me as something very different than what I think you are trying to say.   Grin  Hee-hee!  Seriously, what do you mean?

Ok, in this part of the world it means a surprise. You buy lucky bags for kids what have a toy, candy etc. In fairs and fetes they often have a lucky dip stall, where you pick a wrapped package, without knowing what you're going to get. Obviously it means something different where you are.

'grab bag' is what I've always used when you pick out a bag/box that you don't know what is in it.
