Miriam from Create Hope Inspire organized a colour swap! I love the idea of sending something wonderful to a complete stranger, so of course I was keen to participate! You can read all about it here but the idea is this:
Although winter doesn’t seem to be coming here in Adelaide any time soon, I do think of winter being a little colour lacking so I thought maybe a colour kiss by way of an easy swap could be in order?
I’m calling it ‘a little bit of wonderful‘, you know like a wee unexpected burst of colour on a dreary, cold day. You don’t have to be a crafter to participate in this swap.
This is a colour based swap. You will get an email with your partners details and some of their favourite colours. Your challenge is to choose one colour they love and base all your items around that colour. (As much as you can – creative license is okay!)
Please include 3 or more items in the swap (they can be handmade, or thrifted – if your partner is into thrifted stuff please check, or bought all shiny and new).
Also you must include something to inspire them – a note from you, a quote or poem you love, a link to a song you love or a copy of a story that makes you smile.
My swap partner loved the colours yellow and orange, enjoyed drinking tea, loves to knit and enjoys writing letters. Here’s what I put together…..
I packaged it all up and sent it off to my swap partner in New Zealand. I hope everything arrived safely and I hope my swap partner likes what I’ve chosen/made for her! Read part two here.
