I’ve been sorting my photos and realized that I’ve not yet posted a few related to creative swap. My second creative swap partners were Odette (I stitched some warmth last year) and Jeanny, whose sweet surprise came to Abu Dhabi while I was already in Manila for a vacation. As I opened it last January, I immediately munched on the dried mangoes and consumed the gel pens – cocoa and orange flavors. I liked the pens a lot that I even sent her an email the day the ink bid adieu. Everything in the package were carefully selected and/or prepared, from the self-made greeting card, letter, cellphone purse (nice colors!), magnetic bookmarks to nutella sachy. Incidentally, I was her first creative swap partner. Big thanks, Jeanny.
For the February-March swap, I used a tri-color yarn to crochet this coin purse or whichever purpose this will make.
I also included in the package a camel track card, 23 Asian cut out characters that can be used in scrapbooking and other artwork, and Arabian coffee and tea. And because my swap partner has just celebrated her birthday, I thought of giving her this classic Don’ts for Wives written in 1913. From the remaining yarn, I made a crocheted bookmark to go with this pocketbook/any book.
Creative Swap is hosted by Caryn. Join us in the next round!
