Swaps are just fun!

Here comes Halloween and I have a Fairy Witch for you.

Do you do swaps?

I'd like to know. I love seeing people sharing with each other and who doesn't love to find a surprise in the mail. It just makes me smile and makes the world feel a little kinder. This week was another first for me. I joined a QTA (quick turn around) swap on swap-bot. We were swapping Halloween Button Fairies. This was my interpretation of a fairy and it was really fun to make. If you look on flickr under button fairy you will see some very cute ones. This was fun and quick. I might try making some more of these in different categories of course. Wouldn't a Thanksgiving garland with pilgrims be cute and Christmas is right around the corner. Any ideas? Let me know, I love your comments.
