On a whim, I started a round robin called The Trash To Treasure Swap figuring I might get a few people who where interested in playing. Well, there are 27 swappers involved. 🙂 5 are located in the UK/Europe and the rest are all over the USA.
A flat rate priority box got filled to the top with both finished and unfinished pieces of jewelry, bits of this and that which were eventually supposed to turn into something and a few supplies or tools that I no longer needed. I also included a some stuff made by other artists to make it more interesting for the first few swappers. Each swapper will receive the box and take out a selection of items and replace them them with things they made or supplies.
I sent the box to Illinois to meet up with Valerie from Scotland, who was there visiting her mother. Valerie met up with Pam, who swapped out some of her items for contents in the box. The package made it over to Scotland on Friday, where Valerie swapped out her items. Tomorrow it will be on it’s way to Bettina in Germany.
I can hardly wait until the box makes it back to me so I can see the treasures that traveled around the world to reach my doorstep. I will post updates as the box travels around the world. Maybe I should create a map showing the movement. 🙂
