Would anyone like to do a swap with me?

Since I have joined the "blogger" crowd, I have noticed several of you do swaps. All of the blogs I follow are done by wonderfully creative people! I see beautiful items every day. I am (although very slowly) working on my house. Now that the holidays and some other commitments are over, I should have time to work on it. I want to fill my house with handmade, unique items. So how do I go about it? I would like to swap with , say about 5 people. Are they suposed to be surprise swaps? Or does it get discussed before hand? If you would like to arrange a swap with me,or know the proper etiquette, please contact me.

On another note.......
I have not had good manners in welcoming my followers. I have noticed this is done on other blogs. I can't believe I have 45! I know you all are waiting for me to get busy on the house! I am sure trying! I want to so bad! I work full time and have a 9 year old and a soon to be 2 year old. So, life is busy!


  1. I'm not sure what swap ettiquette is myself. I just did my first one and it was for handmade Valentine's day cards so of course each individual card was a surprise. I'm sure you could tell the swapper what specific kind of house you're building or what time period it is for. I'm still learning myself so I'm not the greatest, but I'm up for a fun swap if you decide to :)

  2. Hi! It's Elizabeth of Creative Breathing. What a beautiful blog background you have. I see that you are creating a real dollhouse. The shape is so beautiful! The little Scottie dog pipe cleaner animal was learned on Martha Stewart's web a time back. I do have a tutorial for making the little rabbits. The technique is always the same. Make a pipe shape (head and body) to size you want. Coil another pipe cleaner around a pencil for body. Bend a length of cleaner in "V" shape to slip between coils for legs, clip to size. No glue needed except for eyes (beads) and noses (paper punch) Have fun! Elizabeth
