Artist Swap: Creative People Wanted

I'm partnering up with Emily from The Morose Bee to do a craft swap!

Here's how it's going to work:


Each of us will pick a favorite artist and receive something inspired by them.

You’ll each be paired up with a swap partner from The Morose Bee, you’ll email your partner and give them:

 · The name of your favorite artist.
 You may give your partner 3 artists to choose from if you wish. 

 · Any helpful links about your artist, especially if he/she is a new upcoming artist. 

 · Your address. 

 Then you’ll research your partner’s favorite artist and create something inspired by that artist for them.  


To participate email me at creativitylizette@yahoo.com with your name and contact email, by April 30th. 

On May 4th you’ll receive an email with the name of your swap partner and their email. 

Artists swap pieces should be mailed by May 31st. 

You are welcome to include any extra goodies if you like. 

Anyone is welcome to join this swap. So, be prepared to mail internationally.

Loving from Australia!

As the end of May (Oops, I meant March) approached I eagerly opened my mailbox in hopes for the arrival of my Wild Olive Stitch Swap package. I keep reading on Flickr how other swapees were receiving their beautiful 4” embroidered hoop and I knew mine would arrive soon. There were two sugar skull stitch hoops on Flickr and I knew one of those little fellows would be for me. Of course, the day my husband gets the mail my packaged arrives. It was sitting on the kitchen counter on I walked in from work. I knew immediately whom it was for and what it was! I got loving from Australia, from Michelle, who got me for the Wild Olive Stitch Swap. This is what I got! 
My motif for the stitch swap was Day of the Dead sugar skulls, Catrina, and skulls. I don’t have a favorite color so I typed that I loved them all. I’m a big fan of Day of the Dead and I fell in love with with my colorful embroidered sugar skull that Michelle made for me. She also included other fun goodies, like two embroidered bird buttons, which I can’t wait to use. Michelle, if you are reading this…. THANK YOU! It makes me feel very special that a complete stranger took the time, care, and patience to create something just for me. This is my 6th swap I have practiced in. And yes, like my friend Debbie made me aware of, I’m addicted to swaps. I’ve received swaps from creative people in different parts of the word. How awesome is that!

 I love the feeling of receiving happy mail thus, I have decided to start some of my own swaps this year and I have also team up with a fellow blogger for a very special and different upcoming swap. Interested? Keep your eyes peeled!
