Thrifty Stashy SNAP! Swap

by Amy Bowerman

Are you attending the SNAP! Conference in April?  Are you as excited as I am?  Would you like to get to know other bloggers attending SNAP!...well let’s do this thing!  My friend Johnnie from Saved By Love Creations and I were discussing SNAP! and swaps this afternoon and we thought it would be fun to do a little pre SNAP! stash and thrifting swap.  This is a great way to meet other bloggers, support each other and most importantly make cool stuff!  Won’t you join us?  Yes you!  WE WANT YOU!

Johnnie and I met this way almost a year ago during a Blue Print Social campaign.  She emailed me about some special paper I used in my campaign project.  I just happened to have extra so I sent to her…why not?  Long story short she made a couple of projects out of the goodies I sent her and sent me some back.  In the end we became good bloggy buds, shared our stash and made some really cool projects!  So what do you think?  Are you down for the Thrifty Stashy SNAP! Swap get down?

Here’s How it Works:

  • Each participant will be randomly paired with another SNAP attendee.
  • Pairs will be announced March 1st, so make sure you sign up with your blog url below by then.
  • When you find out who your partner is, shoot them an email and let them know what your favorite crafting supplies are, and what you look for when you go junkin’, and your mailing address.

What to Do:

Raid your stash for anything you may want to send your new buddy, and head to the thrift store with them in mind.

Spend a max of $15 on junk, box it up with what you may have found in your stash, and mail to your partner no later than March 8th.

When you get your box of fun take pictures, create a project and share it on your blog. You can do a tutorial or whatever you like, and make sure to mention and link to the blogger who sent you your box. Everyone will receive code for the linky to include at the end of their posts. That way we are promoting each other both by linking to our partner, and by a link list of everyone’s final posts!

BE sure to create and link your project by April 1st so we can all check out each others projects, follow each other on social media and keep the excitement going till we all get to meet IRL at SNAP!

I can’t wait to start getting to know you all and getting all kinds of thrifty, stashy creative!  Hope you can join us it’s going to be a fun creative adventure…oh yeah it’s out there! :)

Have a creative day!

Why yes that is my hand :) I dipped in the Dylusions left on my work table for the photo. Not a great idea. The ink didn’t come off completely and I had to attend my friends 30th birthday party with a purple hand…ha!
