Wow, who would have guessed that I was going to lead a craft swap one day... My defining moment! I think the Trade Trade went extremely well. It was great to see how original and unique each trade item could be.

After my recent interview with Chris at, I was inspired to start the swap and was happily surprised by 9 participants! Everyone signed up within one week, and then we had three weeks to swap a handmade craft.

Here are some glamour shots of some amazing Trade Trades by amazing Trade Traders!

I will post more pictures of the remaining Trades! I haven't received all of them and some pictures are being difficult.

Thank you all Trade Traders for particpating: Corine, Eric, Eva, Jennifer (and Molly!), Jillian, Kristi, Megan, Necia, and Sheila!

I did receive a lot of positive feedback on this experience, so keep your eyes peeled for the next Trade Trade announcement (probably in a week or two).



  1. Very cool! I wish I had time to participate this time. Let me know next time and hopefully I'll get in on the act!

  2. So awesome! Glad it all worked out!
