Joined a Vintage Christmas swap - you can join too!


I've participated in a few sewing, color themed and vintage themed swaps this Summer, and they were really fun. The latest one that I've joined up for is Vintage Christmas Swap
You are given a swap partner and you find out their likes by visiting their blogs, and then send them a Christmas present that is either a vintage item or something made from vintage items. The swaps are always fun trying to figure out someone's likes and then putting together a package, and then nerve wrecking waiting for them to receive it and to see if they actually like it!
What's good about the swaps that I've done so far is that I am finding good homes for things that I've been hoarding for years! I'm not giving away junk, I'm giving away cool little things that I've squirreled away for myself for years, but just never found a use for. The things that I give were special to me, and I pass them on hoping that they'll be special to someone else.
