Don't Throw That Button Away Swap!

SWAP UPDATE - April 26, 2009: This swap is now closed! Thank you to everyone who entered. I will be in contact via e-mail today! Check back often for my next great swap! SWAP UPDATE - April 2, 2009: I have changed the dates for this swap due to my blog still being so new and not having many swappers sign up yet. If you have already signed up for this swap, hang in there! We'll get this swap rolling sooner or later! Thank You! After mailing out several of my handmade buttons this morning to a fellow swapper, I thought it might be fun to start my own swap. The handmade buttons and craft items that my swap partner mailed to me were so adorable and gave me such inspiration for new ideas. Take a minute to view PhatSheep's blog and check out her handmade crafts and fabrics. I have to admit I was a little late with mailing my swap items out due to being out of town and with it being my first swap but now I understand how easy it is and would like to encourage other people to participate in a swap they find interesting or even my swap that is starting today!
