Swap Updates

Well, I worked on my Tiara/Crown swap project and my Bit and Pieces Swap project this weekend. Each one has its own little frustrations because it is hard to match the vision you have in your head with the actual product.

I really want to do a crown that my partner will like but then I get nervous when I see extravagant things like this. Holly builds her crowns on wedding tiara bases but I haven't been able to find one anywhere where I live. So, I am doing a paper crown. Hopefully, my swap partner will still like it.

My Bits and Pieces project is moving right along but I need more fun bits of ephemera to put on it.

I think the best part about these swaps is trying to make something that your partner will like based on the limited information you get from them. It's a fun challenge!!!

I think a lot of us just appreciate getting handmade gifts, no matter how they turn out. It takes a lot of time to plan and execute them. And you learn something new with each project. I'm sure the crown is looking great - I can't wait to see it!
