Call for participants! Garden Swap…

I’ve not organised a swap before (other than the Secret Santa over on Crafteroo) and have taken part in a few recently, and thought it would be nice to organise one myself. The swap is open to all readers of my blog who have their own blog/website (so I can check up on your reliability if I’ve not been acquainted with you before) internationally.

The rules are as follows:

You must make one handmade item in a garden theme, this can be something for the garden, or something with a gardeny theme- insects, flowers, etc.

An item of a crafty nature that your swap partner can use in their own crafting- fabric, buttons, stickers, etc

An edible treat- chocolate, cake, etc

Want to take part? Please e-mail me  at kerry_l_wilkinson (at) with your name, address, blog/website address, a bit of information about you, your craft, any allergies, likes/dislikes etc as well as information about your garden and/or attitude towards gardening and your favourite flower. I will be taking applications until 23rd April, and will send you the details of your swap partner a day or two after.

You will then have until the end of May to post out your swap items to your partner.

Feel free to start e-mailing me straight away!

    Does it matter where we live? This sounds like fun!

    Vintage Violet sent me here, because I said I was bored. Was to either join this swap, or she’d come kick me in the bottom. 😀

    E-mailed you my swap details!
