Mother Goose Swap!!

Swap officially closed. Partners have been assigned.Thank you to all that joined and for any who missed out, I will be hosting a sweet little birds swap soon, so please bookmark my blog and check back!

I am very excited to announce that I have decided to host a Mother Goose themed swap!
I hope you will join in the fun!
Here are all the details:

Sign up to swap by: Friday, February 8th

Partner names will be sent out via email by: Monday February 11th

Send completed swap out by: Friday, March 7th

Swap Description:
This is a "use what you have" craft swap. So, don't buy anything new, just scavenge around and make do with what you have. It's more challenging and fun that way, right?
Select your very favorite nursery rhyme(s). Make a handcrafted item that is inspired by this rhyme(s) and mail it to your partner.

*Hint* Be sure you include the rhyme you are inspired by somewhere in your swap package if it is not incorporated into the craft itself.*

Anything your creative mind and able hands can conjure is fair game, as long as it ties in to the Mother Goose/nursery rhyme theme. Think mixed media, collage, paper crafts, needlecraft, softies, screenprint, dolls, jewelry, painting, terrariums, pet rocks, decorated socks...really anything goes. Just don your thinking cap and get crafty! Brownie points for all things vintage!

Who Can Join In?: Everyone & anyone who is interested in participating. Just *please* remember that if you sign up, it is so very important that you maintain your commitment, or kindly email me or leave a comment and let me know if you can't stick with us. Also please be sure you meet the mailing deadline.

How to Join:If you are interested in joining, please email me at to sign up (or with any questions). Please be sure to include your name, mailing address, preferred email address & blog name/link(if you have one). Also, not sure yet if any international participants will be playing along, but please let me know when signing up if you are open to being paired with an international swapper.

Hi Fanny-
Thanks for being the first to join in! So happy to have you! :-)
Sorry about my haste to post (should that be called post-haste?) :-) and my resulting oversight to not include my email. Oops! I have corrected the problem. You should now be able to email me your contact info.
