~*~ April Craft Circle ~*~

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Calling all crafty mothers! If you would like to make a craft this month please post here or email me by Sat April 6th. If we have enough interest (5 or more mothers) I'll post the list Sun April 7th.

I would like to get feedback from anyone who took part in the Jan, Feb, or March craft circles---is there anyone who never recieved a craft, anyone who recieved from the same person twice, had any difficulties they would like to express---please let me know any comments you have. Just wondering if anyone has felt left out. And if there are problems that come up maybe something can be done to prevent them in the future. Thanks in advance.

Happy crafting!

I'd like to jump in this month, too! But having never done it before, I'd love to hear what other moms have received in past craft swaps...so I can figure out what's appropriate (I would hate to not do enough or do too much, etc!).

And what's a rough date for getting the crafts out? Mid April?

I'm going to take a break from the exchanges (just found out I'm pregnant and have too many personal projects to finish) but they have been fun. I have machine embroidered things for people, and in return have received homemade paper art and a wroght iron garden spade and metal bunny pin.

Lots of fun!

I want to join this time. I took a break, but I think I can join again. Once in a while it is fun. I've received a wreath w/ dried flowers and a doll. I've made a doll, booties, small crochet crafts, etc.

Wow we have 8 mothers signed up so far & I have not gotten any concerns from anyone, so the craft circles have been running pretty smoothly...

Megan & MamaMae,
A list will be made of who you send to, email privately to get the snail mail address, then make a craft (or 2, or 3) & send it off. Crafts that I've made have been rubberstamped cards, hooded towels, scrunchies, polar fleece stuffed bears, now I'm starting to make crafts out of felt (finger puppets, purses). I tend to make a couple quicker crafts instead of one more time consuming craft, it's just my style (either way is fine, though). I have recieved a necklace, doll, Miracle Scrub in a painted jar, decorated gift bag, machine embroidered t-shirt. There's no time deadline, but if you aren't finished by the end of the month, just kindly keep in touch with who you're sending to so she can get an idea of when to expect it. Some mothers have also included a postcard from their area with their craft.
It's been a lot of fun!

parisfrance, congratulations on your pregnancy!
