The Swap is Out There

I've had this idea for a while and decided now is as good a time as any to host an X-Files craft swap. According to my social media feeds that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson arrived in Vancouver to start filming Season 11, and this particular fangirl is pretty thrilled we're getting another season of a show I've loved for more than 20 years.
This swap is going to be small and relatively short, only about 2 months and limited to 50 participants. It's open to all craft types and will require one medium and one small handmade craft, shipping on 10/13. You can find all the details and signup information here. Signups are open until August 10 or when we reach 50 participants.

Multi-Holiday Charm Swap Info

I am hosting a quick (hopefully) holiday charm swap. This will be different from my usual charm swap in that it will be more of a grab bag, you’ll get back the number of charms you send, between 20 and 100. The goal is to build a fun, festive charm collection for hexies, patchwork and iSpy projects.
Signups open now through August 7. Fabric will be due to me by August 15 and back to you September 15.

It’s so cliche to start with “I can’t believe it’s August already”, but all summer I have felt like life is stuck in fast forward. I wrote “June” twice yesterday when signing forms at the doctor.  I am glad I decided this summer to take a hiatus from my craft projects, sewing orders and swaps because my kids are here 24 hours a day, plus I actually like leaving the house in the summer.  While my kids are happy to watch TV all their waking hours so I can work on projects,I do like them to see the sun occasionally. I signed them up for a bunch of small activities, all of which seemed to happen in the last three weeks. We have lived in the car and eaten a majority of our meals as picnics on park benches or en route to the next thing. Thankfully the bulk of the actives are wrapping up and they only have a few things left this summer, but we’re planning some family adventures for August, so I don’t know when I will get back to my sewing room.
