Farmgirl Pinkeep Mystery Swap

Pinkeeper by Mary Jane Butters

Well, I am finally doing it....I am organizing and hosting my first swap! For this swap on the Farmgirl Connection board will be done as a "mystery"....where no one else in the swap group will know who is swapping with who until the pinkeep is received by the recipient [each person e-mails the host to get their swap person and their address as they are ready to send out their creation).

The really fun part of the mystery is that each participant will be keeping a swap "diary" of sorts on their blog or on the Farmgirl Connection.....so the reveal of who has who will happen once everyone receives their little work of Farmgirl art.....thanks to Stephanie (queenofdreamsz4u) for the wonderful idea!

What are pinkeeps you ask? They are a different version of a pincushion, even tho they perform the same duty, neat huh!?!?! A creative spin on the "ordinary" sewing accessory.

Stay tuned to this blog for the whimsy and fun happenings of this artful mystery swap.
