Would you like to take part in our monthly craft circle and make a craft? If so, post here for sign up. How about we have sign up until Thursday March 7th, then the list of who you send your craft to will be posted Friday March 8th.
Craft your heart out!

I took February off, but will rejoin the March Craft Circle. I make forged iron pieces- this time, a gardening type surprise. I don't mind shipping out to international addresses.

If you don't mind- would you post your reasons why you participate in the craft circles when you reply to this thread?

I participate for 2 reasons
1) to inspire and be inspired. I hope that the craft I send out helps you to grow in your own creativity.
2) to rediscover the surprise of crafting and giving, without thought of profit.

We do blacksmithing as a business- part time income right now- so the craft swap takes me into a totally different motivation, which is nice.

i will participate again!
leafy lady, good idea about asking why we participate...i do it because i love to get suprises in the mail, and i really enjoy making my crafts and like to share them with anyone who appreciates the work that is put into making a craft.

Even though I am moving ever so slowly on my Feb. craft, I will sign up again for the March one.
Thanks for taking charge, Saganaga.

Alison

PS Lilypad, I posted a message for you on the Feb. thread. Also, could you let me know if your babe is a boy or girl.

I would love to be a part of march circle!! I participate because I am trying to learn to be crafty......and I love to get things in the mail!!!!! I really put a lot into what I made last time (thought and effort) and just enjoy the "giving" --and the recieving.

I used to live overseas--welcome all overseas moms--but a concern for the cost of shipping??? My mom sent me a small package to singapore and it cost $20!!

Since becoming a mom I haven't had as many opportunities to feel productive, when I complete a craft I've produced something and I feel productive, when I feel productive I feel that I become a better mom.
I have a need to express myself creatively and just because now that I'm a mom that doesn't mean I have to stop expressing myself creatively.
I love receiving surprise packages in the mail.
I am inspired by the crafts I receive from other crafty mothers, they give me ideas and possibilities.
I love to give.
I love to share my talents and ideas with other crafty mothers who appreciate the time and effort put into a craft.

Lukesmom, I think I used to know you...I used to live in France (maybe from an APExpat list?)

For everyone participating in the March craft circle...if you're interested I thought it might be fun to enclose a postcard from your area with your craft...just a thought, if you'd like to do it you can.

And I'm so excited! I'm not entirely sure what I'll make yet, but I'm so excited.

The reason(s) I would like to do this is that I love to craft, I get such fulfillment out of making things with my hands that I'd like to brighten up someone else's day as well. And I have to agree, I love getting surprises in the mail!!!!!!! And of course being on bed-rest with this pregnancy, it will be so nice to do somethng other than read or watch the tube!

I will include a postcard from my area with the package - great idea!!!!!

Many blessings,

J

Here's the list for the March Craft Circle. Make a craft (or 2, or 3) and send it off to:

lilypad sends to Lukesmum
Lukesmum sends to abismommie
abismommie sends to solomama
solomama sends to fullcirclesb
fullcirclesb sends to Leafylady
Leafylady sends to parisfrance
parisfrance sends to mom at home
mom at home sends to saganaga
saganaga sends to lilypad

Voila! That makes a craft circle.

Now you will need to PM or email each other to get each other's snail mail addresses. Have fun celebrating National Craft Month!

I PM'd Parisfrance and fullcirclesb. To check your PMs, click on the "usercp" button up near the top of the screen. I've got my craft done already and am looking forward to the swap.

Wow! What a cool idea! And what great motivation for getting crafty!@!@
Looks like I'm a day late for this circle, but if you think of it, will you email or PM me for the next one? I will also try to remember to check back at the beginning of April.

Maybe I'll try to get some of my mom's groups to try this.
Thanks!

Hi Saganaga,

Thanks for organizing this one, too! My email address is: wiensthac@yahoo.com so you can email me your address. Also, what are the age(s) and gender(s) of your child(ren) and do YOU have any particular favorite colors? Thanks. Now I just need to get my Feb. one done so I can start on this one!!

Parisfrance, I mailed your package out Wednesday. I think it will take about 2 weeks to get to you, by airmail and through customs. I hope you like it.

I'd love to try this in the next month or two but I'm not sure what kind of crafts you guys are exchanging - I'm not really crafty but I'd love to try it out.
