We love participating in swaps and exchanges! They are wonderful ways of meeting the nicest families, while giving and receiving beautiful handcrafted items for our home and nature table. Much of what we give and receive is Waldorf-inspired.
Items that we created for the Gnomes, Hedgehogs, Mushroom Swap
This year, we have continued to enjoy being a part of Bits of Goodness swaps, including the "gnomes, mushrooms and hedgehogs" theme! We send out 5 items to be swapped, and 1 item for the hostess. Then, we receive 5 different items back. Coming up is a "summer play" swap and we eagerly sent out our handcrafted streamer sticks. Can't wait to see what we get back!

We have also participated in the 4 Seasons Exchange which is a one-on-one exchange each season. Here is Spring:

Both groups have flickr.com groups where you can see pictures posted. Bits of Goodness runs a yahoogroup where you can sign up for swaps and see more information. 4 Seasons Exchange is on Facebook. What I love about the 1-1 exchanges is that we write a letter to the family, telling them what we made and why. It is such a joy to see handcrafted items from different parts of the world come to us for our nature table.
