|This was my mosaic for the Potholder Pass Swap. The theme was "Spring". What do you think?|
I'm a swap addict. There. I said it. My name is Wendi and I'm a swap addict. I love to swap. I do Flickr Swaps and Blog Swaps. This year, I made a resolution to only do one-swap-at-a-time. I failed miserably. Didn't make it through the first week of January. Maybe - possibly - I over-commit. Maybe. I am in three virtual bees (is that excessive?) And I have already completed 2 swaps this year not including the bee blocks (too much, do you think?). And I'm not really sure how many swaps I'm signed up for at the moment (well, admittedly, that is a bit scary!).
But they are fun, and I love doing them.

Sometimes, when I go to stalk my partner, I can't believe how perfect they are for me. I "favorite" every picture in their mosaic. I read their profile and am amazed at how much we have in common. How do the swap mamas do it?
|This is the mosaic I created for the Pillow Talk Swap. Aren't these pillows fabulous?|
|Mosaic for the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap|
But the truth is that I don't do bees or swaps because of what I might receive. The fun of the swap is in the creative process. And having the inspiration to make something that might please someone else. And try techniques that you haven't tried before. And to see what other people create.

So, do you swap?

Has it been a good experience for you?

|Last year at work was very difficult, so my partner in this mug rug swap made me my own little get-away!|
Just food for thought.
