Swaps Revisited

As summer is slowly coming to a close and the signs of fall are showing up everywhere. Back to School, the fall and winter clothing collections and of course Halloween. All the decorating and craft shops are displaying Halloween in full regalia and one must shop early to get the best items.

Here in blogland the swaps are also reflecting the changing of the season. There is a "Vintage Storybook and Crafty Bookmark Swap" over at The polka dot pixie with sign ups ending Sept.2

After spending some enjoyable hours scouring the used book shops I have found some delightful early children's books.. Ideas for the bookmarks are waiting in my sketch book and I should have them finished up by the end of the week. Preparing for this swap has been so much fun.

I have also signed up for the "Black Cat & Pumpkin Swap" over at HopHopJingleBoo sign ups ending Sept.1
What fun looking and thinking about ideas, buying bits and pieces of Halloween and planning all the wonderful items to send in the swap.

A couple of other swaps I thought I would like to try are:

"Halloween Party Hat Swap" over at the Speckled Egg Sign ups are until Sept 8 and there is a "Trick or Treat Swap" coming in early October hosted by Crafting by Candlelight

To get into the Halloween spirit I bought a little orange pumpkin sweater at Dollarama and put it on my stuffed pug. She needs a Halloween hat so I will have to see what I can do.
A few Halloween items I bought in the little town of St Jacobs.

Those Halloween Swaps look great fun. It's not so big over here, getting there but nothing like Canada or America.
Happy Swapping!
