A couple of years ago I found this fun crafting site www.ravelry.com. It is enabling and addicting. Lots of patterns and lots of groups to join. Some of the fun groups are swap groups. They can be anything from a one time birthday swap - to a Christmas swap - to an envelope swap - to a year round swap.
This year, amongst others, I am doing a year round swap. My partner Jennifer is from NY and she has sent me some most wonderful things. Here is what is in my Summer Swap box - with a little extra for my birthday!
