I made these bottle cap magnets for an “Altered Bottle Caps” swap on Swap-Bot. The images on the magnets in the top picture came from a Great Lakes Company “Commodore Perry” beer box. George’s Thursday night beer tastings do come in handy for something!
I am participating in another blog swap facilitated by swap-bot and hosted by “kiwivandal.” While I usually use swap-bot for postcard exchanges, sometimes I do blog swaps, too. It’s fun to see new and different ideas! My partners’ blogs are:
- Adventures with the Nowling Family
- The Aftercraft
- Deborah’s Postcards (Addicted to Mail)
- Yellow Hall Studio
For my partners who are here because of the swap, welcome – or feel free to visit my vintage postcard blog, The Postman Loves Me.
I received this adorable handmade postcard from one of the kids participating in a postcard exchange on swap-bot! The excitement of getting another dog is so evident, it makes me smile.
Occasionally, on swap-bot, I try different types of swaps, like last month’s tote bag swap. On these swaps, you never know what you are going to get – sometimes, it’s great, sometimes, not so much. (For the record, I sent my swap partner a Greenstar canvas bag.)
I was lucky, though, because I got a very cool bag from my swap partner. It’s a perfect size and shape for the baby blanket knitting project I’m working on for Anna’s baby.
