My first swap!!

Ooooh how exciting!
I absolutely love looking at other peoples craft blogs.
Its amazing what people achieve with their crafts and seeing their fascinating designs.
But just recently I have been in awe of peoples doll making skills from Prairie Mouse to Miaou's little Arigumi dolls (spelling check!) and from The Black Apple to I'maGingerMonkey.
And thats not all. I've seen loads of different dolls and they are all fantastic. So I thought my first swap could be......... wait for it............

dolls! Now obviously I haven't had my blog all that long so I guess that the amount of people who will know about it will be limited, so if you fancy it spread the word!
What I am thinking is giving it a week from tomorrow for people to sign up so the last day will be Saturday 19th April.
If you email me on meecrafts at googlemail dot com with your details and I will sort through them all, stick names in a hat and hopefully let you all know your swap partners by the Sunday evening.
I think if we stick to a £5 budget or if any of our overseas friends from the US are joining us that will be about $10 to you, but obviously if you want to spend more thats entirely up to you.

Ok I think thats covered everything. I cant wait to get started.
I hope you join in!

Sniff, I've just got too much on my plate at the moment so I'll have to jib out of this one.
I will be keeping my beady little eyes on this though with great interest ...
Well done for organising x

really sorry but I can't do this one either - I think am signed up for about 6 swaps between now and end of mnth and am in total panic mode. one more would send me over the edge. And I have never made a doll!

great idea though, can't wait to see what you all come up with...

Chloe said...

Aww thats a shame Tilly and Annie.
Never mind though.
Depending on how successful it is I may do another one but spice it up a little ;)

Ravenhill said...

What a lovely idea! I found out about your doll swap via Overmilkwood.

I make matyroshka softies and would love to be a part of the swap!

I heard about your doll swap on Ravenhill. I'd like to join. Not sure if you meant your e-mail was actually google mail or gmail, so I'll e-mail both and see. You can contact me, too, by my comment ID. Looking forward to it.
