last chance to swap

Today is the last day to sign up for our travel themed craft swap! This is such a fun opportunity to share your creative talents with another crafty free people girl, and all of the blog readers as well. Check out details here and sign up here.
I was walking home from work last week and spotted this amazing trunk in my neighbor’s garbage. It’s made of metal and super heavy, but I dragged it home. All the straps are leather and its marked with all these old labels from its travels. I think I might use it as inspiration for the swap! How perfectly strange is that?

Hey Liana,
It was in the garbage! You scared me, I thought I typed garage. Yeah, it was definitely trash.

Garage… garbage. Whoops! Sorry, I blame my reading skills on the fact that it is a Monday. I figured you weren’t a thief! Great find!

For whatever reason when I entered your blog, the last entry was the 26th of April so I put in to join the swap. When I returned to the blog it then pulled up yesterdays and notified us that the 30th was the deadline. Sorry! Just count me in for the next one and I will do better abt. keeping up with the entries!

Hey Angela,
Check your email!

Hey Anonymous. I’m not going to use the actual case for the swap. It really really heavy and would cost a fortune to ship. I was thinking of maybe using all the cool labels as inspiration. Judging by the labels, the case travelled on lots of boats, so maybe something inspired by old cruise ships. I don’t know really…

Ooops…I’m sorry- I didn’t realize I was past the cut off date!
