Motivation by Swap

I started swapping again via the web site http://www.swap-bot.com/. I've done this mainly to force myself to do things I like to do and then share them with others. Mostly, I've been swapping supplies like fabric. It is helping me to rediscover fabrics I have forgotten I had. It used to be a regular thing where I would open up my containers of fabric and organize them or pull them out to do little projects but I just got busy and stopped doing it so much.

Now though, I try to find little tidbits that I don't mind sharing or maybe I just don't love so much anymore. I love putting together fabrics and seeing what someone else thinks. I'm just starting to do swaps where I actually have to make something. I did one the other day and was so excited that I finished it that I forgot to take a picture of it.

The latest one I sent out was to commemorate the 100,000th swap on the site. I decided to take the little pictures Swap-bot provides to use as profile pictures and put them together like a little collage and make a coaster or mug-rug. I lined them all up on my computer and then printed them on fabric. I decided that wasn't enough to give so I made two matching postcards. Here they are so what do you think?
