Craft Swap - some lovely things but.....

I fear the Christmas Craft swap was a bit of a damp squib this year and I won’t be doing it again. 

There were some lovely items sent and received but far too many people didn’t reply to emails, and therefore didn’t send pictures of what they sent or received. At least two people sent gifts but received nothing. It’s not good enough! 

Next year I plan a simple swap with one person! They can be sure I will send them something. And if they fail me I will hunt them down.* 

So here follow some pictures of the lovely things (no picture of the cute felt owl I made as I failed to take a pic before sending (idiot!) and the person I sent it to has failed to answer any emails) 

 I won’t be naming and shaming though – tempting as it is. You know who you are.

*May be a lie


  1. What a shame. I received the beautiful owls in the bottom pic and they took pride of place on my tree.
    I'm not sure if my gift ever arrived (funnily enough the deer in the first 2 pics lol) I hope it did. Thank you for organising the swap. I was one of the lucky ones I guess x Sue x

    1. Glad you enjoyed it - extra glad you got a gift in return for the lovely one you sent!

  2. Oh no :( love your Xmas decoration swap. I don't really go in for Christmas so it was a bit of highlight. Sorry I took a while to send you a photo of the lovely cat I received (above) but until I received your email I thought I just had to send you a photo of what I made! (Plus iPhone stolen so not so easy to send you a photo but that's another story). Who am I going to send Christmas snails too now that you won't be doing this again? ; 0)
    Thankyou for running it over last 2 years though. X

    1. Thanks - I love doing it but this year it was as though once the emails went out everyone (not you) lost interest. So demoralising. I'm sure we'll find something fun to do :-)

    2. just realised I missed out your snail pic!! now added!!

  3. aww some lovely items swapped. I was sadly one of the ones who sent (the knitted cat) but never got anything in return. My 2nd swap where this has happened now and has really turned me off them, sad really as i love doing them. you have more morals than me as i would name and shame for sure :) thank you for holding the swap, you did a great job, its a shame some people abuse the swap x x
