for my swapper...







i am so excited about this "blogger swap" hosted by amanda. for anyone who isn't quite sure what a blogger swap is i will give you a litte run down... amanda collected names, addresses, and blog sites from around 78 people (all with blogs and "makers" of all different things) and she mixed up our names and gave everyone a secret person (just like secret santas) and now we each research our person on their blog and then make something for them and mail it to them (we were each given our person's address). doesn't it sound like so much fun? i am just giddy about it :) i think it is an amazing opportunity to meet new friends all over the country with similar interests... wow! anyway, i suppose you "get it" now so i will stop rambling.

the above is the first thing i made for my swapper. i know that she likes growing vegetables and making art with her kids... so i thought hand carved veggie stamps would be fun. i know you might be thinking "isn't this supposed to be a secret?"... but there are 78 of us... so the odds of her coming across my blog is low.... and even if she does... probably at least half of the swappers or more like to grow veggies and make art with their kids.... right? 

i am so excited about the way they turned out. i was just kinda winging it :) next, i am going to sew something to go with it. i am a bit torn between two/three things so i have to ponder on it a bit... but i'll let you know.
