At the beginning of April, I joined an online gift exchange though Swap-Bot. Basically, I signed up for a specific swap. Then a computer random picked someone else from the swap for me to send to (and someone else randomly recieved my name). The mission: find something on ETSY for $5 and send it to your person.
You have a profile on Swap-Bot for your sender to go by (mine included a list of my favorite items over on ETSY too)… and a couple days ago, I got my suprize in the mail…
Little Penguin Push Pins!! From from a shop called Peg’s Boards. So cute, I just love them! This was my first swap and I think it was a great success. 😀
Have you been on ETSY before? It’s a wonderful site, and I’m not just saying that because I like making stuff. You can find just the most original items, so it’s a great place to look for gifts for hard-to-shop-for people. And all of the items are handmade or vinatage/repurposed. So you’re helping out people like me that like making stuff 😀
