Was on a blog the other day (Bag Ladee) and Emma had pics of what she received in a "Mug Swap". I had noticed the link to the swap on her blog previously, but to late to join the swap.

Since my birthday is in April I'd been trying to think of something special to do on my blog for the month of April. So after "talking" to Emma about swaps I've decided to do a BAG SWAP!! I love bags!!

On the 13th I will pick names and let everyone know who to send their gift too, including the info you have left about yourself in the comments. This will not be a "true" swap - the person you send to will not be the person sending a package to you. We will mix it up a bit.

If you want to be part of the swap this is what you need to do:

#1) Leave a comment here letting me know you want to join. Make sure I have a way to contact you. I will email you for shipping info as soon as you have entered. (Or feel free to email me your info - email link on the right sidebar.) To make it more personal, please tell us your favorite color, what crafts you enjoy & if there is something you collect. If you have a shop on the net, please feel free to leave a link.

#2) Buy or make a bag! This can be any type of bag - big, small, new, gently used - it's up to you. Now pressure to spend $$$$. This is for fun and to get something in the mail!! LOL It would be nice if you placed at least one handmade item into the bag (or more items if you like).

#3) Package the gift - label it and mail!! Please mail bags by April 27th!

The photo above is one of my personal bags. Not one that will be the gift from me.

So lets have some fun this month! Tell everyone you know about the swap and send them on over!!

Please feel free to grab the following button and add it with a link back to here onto your blog.

  10. oooh, I'd love to play!

    I am Mum to three so like a big bag and I love anything purple and I like to knit and sew and do interesting stuff with scrap paper. And it is my personal opinion that buttons are the best thing in the world (after my babies of course)!!

    Sounding slightly mad now so I'll shut up!

    Can't wait to get making!!


  11. I'm in too! This is going to be so much fun. I love lots of color. I enjoy all crafts, but sewing is my favorite. I guess you could say I collect fabric. I'll make a bag that fits the likes of the person I get. You can contact me through my etsy shop or at


  12. This sounds like fun, if there is room please count me in.

  13. I got my assignment to day and my mind is already whirling.. although that could be the intermittent dizziness from the ear infection. Why does this make me feel like an unsteady 5 year old? LOL! Don't sewing under the influence for me :)

  14. include me too. I have a bag I can swap. Sounds like fun.

  15. Hi if I'm not too late, can you please put my name on the list for the bag swap? Thanks heaps. Hugs Naomi from adelaide, Sth Australia
