  • Swaps

    I have been reading lots of American blogs and loads of people over there do swaps - swap supplies and finished products etc. Has anyone encountered this over here and how does it all work?

      i'm on the same beady forum as seahorse and we had a xmas present swop, which was fun

      also on the lampworking forum we have bead swops where we all make beads then our names are drawn out in pairs and we do a stright swop with that person, on the same forum we have RAOGK which is a random act of glass kindness so if someone is asking about some special glass that you have or needs something urgent that you've got you can send it to them or if there not well or a bit down you can send them something, it dosen't have to be glass related

      someone sent me some glass off cuts so i could try fusing before spending money, i sent out glass to someone not long ago so they could try some special reactive glass and so on and so forth

          How is it organised? I'm very interested you see and want details about how to set one up, what the 'rules' are etc etc. Any help would be gratefully received!

                  Theres another forum that i'm a member of, usa based but members from all over the world. They do loads of swaps of all different kinds which are great fun. Some are supplies swaps, finished work swaps or themed swaps. I'm in one now that is called One Tiny Thing, where we have partners that we swap one tiny hand crafted item with. (no bigger than 4" x 4"). No body knows what they are getting but when it arrives a picture is posted in a forum gallery so we all see the goodies.

                  I've never organised one but they have their own list of 'swap rules' which i'm sure could be 'adapted' if any of you wanted to start one.

                  I dont want to mention the name of the forum here as it would be a bit unfair to Media lol.

                        sounds fab

                        UK only sounds great
                        I'd be intrested in swapping, scrapbooking papers, embellishments, ect,
                        Is anyone intrested in swapping stamps, i find especially with mens stamps that once i've done the men in the family and close friends that i cant really use the stamp again so would be really keen in swapping mens stamps, i have a lovely bear playing cricket which has done the rounds and is ready to be replaced, anyone intrested?

                              I think it's a great idea but I'm not sure how it could be run. We would have to be careful because if someone doesn't follow through with a swap then it could go wrong. If anyone has any ideas on how it could be done then I'm all ears!!
