A Creative Exchange - the sending

So, I did it. Yep, I signed up for another swap!  This time the swap was for a Creative Exchange Swap hosted by Dunne With Style.
Basically I send a package of creative goodies based on someone's Instagram feed & I am sent a package too but from someone different and then we all make something up from the packages.  Sounded like fun to me!  This is the parcel I sent......
Below is what was inside it before I wrapped them all up individually and popped together in a bigger bundle to post.
I saw that my swap partner travelled a lot & liked to crochet, so I tried to get things that all blended in together. So first off I purchased some metal crochet hooks that she could crochet the mini skeins with or she may want to crochet the beading wire with & use the beads provided or she may make beads from the sculpey clay...or she may use the sculpey clay to make groovy handles for the crochet hooks and the ribbon to use with the beads & wire. I also added a blank calico pouch with a black fabric marker pen to decorate & keep her project in.... but she may do some other amazing stuff with her Creative Swap parcel - that's the fun bit, waiting to see what she does with it! 
If you are on Instagram, search for more projects & packages using #thecreativeexchange & I will keep you posted on what she makes and of course.....what I receive in my parcel - I'm super excited, I hope my swap parcel gets here soon!  

Have you joined in The Creative Exchange swap or are you participating in another swap??
Or do you hate swaps because you are always let down (kinda like me, but hey, I decided to chance another one!)

  1. This is a lovely, thoughtful package! You have a luck exchange partner. I'd have to guess she's a distant twin of mine (everything in your package is calling to me!)
