One of my goals for 2012 was to get more involved in the sewing community online. To that end, I’ve joined the Colette Sewing Handbook Sew-Along… and now I”ve got a new project too! I’m so excited to join the Covert Robin Mystery Gift Exchange, hosted by Rachael from Imagine Gnats and some other lovely ladies.
Basically, it’s a glorified Secret Santa exchange, without the Christmas theme! Last I heard, about 70 bloggers were participating. We’ve all been assigned a person to craft for – and we’ve got until the end of March to get it in the mail! Gifts are to be about $20-30 retail value… but ooh, it’s hard to stick to that!
The best part is secretly getting to know your new buddy by investigating their blog! Lurking with a purpose! It’s such a fun challenge to poke through old posts and try to imagine what they would love to receive. I’ve already got too many ideas… I’d better choose just one or two! :)
