Recycled Craft Supply Swapping Penpal Wanted!
My name is Claire. I'm currently in the UK and I'm looking for someone from abroad to swap craft materials with. I love crafts using recycled goods like soda can tin, bottle tops, juice pouches and other packaging.
I think it would be great to pair up with someone abroad to swap these items so that we both end up with a variety of supplies that are a wee bit more interesting and unfamiliar.
If we swapped maybe once a month, I think it would be a great way to swap tips, inspiration, problem solve etc! Maybe you have a surplus of somthing your never going to use, or have a found object your just not inspired to use but think someone else could be?
That sort of thing, no money is spent except on postage. Just a great way to mix up your craft supplies. And get a crafty pen-pal in the process!! Any resulting crafty projects can be detailed on here.
Just an idea, if anyone is interested in giving it a bash, please message me. I am and absolute horder of anything that looks useful and can't wait to pass on my surplus or recycled goods. I love to use resin, silver, beads, found objects and anything music related in my crafts ie. cassettes, vinyl records etc to make jewellery and home objects. I'm not looking for an exact match in intersts, but just so you guys know what I'm generally in to.
Hope to hear from someone soon!
This is such a cool idea! I don't know if I can get involved, just yet, but I couldn't help but be your cheerleader!! How cool would it be to make recycle crafts out of things from another country? I know here in the U.S., we'd get a lot of interest and chat about pieces that look so different. Oh, Rachie Pin Up should get involved, she lives in Israel! Imagine the funky cool stuff she could provide! Oh, and Violetta, she lives in Serbia....argh, I so need to get a job, so I can support my addiction to crafts and swaps...
Thanks, the idea is that it doesn't cost either person anything but the postage, because were swapping recycled goods and surplus items. Just a wee thought - hopefully I get some takers! Hope you are well, take care, CLaire x
I'm up for it, my house is brimming full of stuff.
But I'm in the U.K. also =
But if we can get a load of us from all over the place =]
I would be totally up for! Sounds like tons of fun! PLus I don't have any crafty friends really so it would be a plus to chat with someone crafty! I live in the states Baltimore Maryland to be exact. If your interested just hit me up.
Hey guys! Im in Canada.. I got loads of empty potato chip bags that I have (and my family) been saving up for the past year or so.. been wanting to make something with them.. now I have way too many. I also am a horder of usless knick knacks and would love to trade some of this stuff with someone outside of north america. One persons junk is anothers treasure! Great idea!
Im totally up for it.I have been saveing tea jugs and coffee containers,not sure what to do with them and i have alot of lace.I live Oklahoma.If you like you can hit me up.
Hey, Thanks for replying. I have messaged the three members who are outside the U.K. I think 3 three is all I can commit to at the moment. But I hope anyone else who is interested in doing the same finds a swapping partner! I'm away to raid the cupboards and see what I can find! Cheers guys, Claire xxx
