Something I’m thankful for this week: Spoonflower I Spy Swap 3 is finished! All of the participants should have their fabric in-hand now. Or under-presser-foot. Whichever.
There are a handful of picks in this swap that’ve been chosen in previous swaps. The cameras, kites and alligators, for example. I love the variety of color and subject matter that appear in the swap sets. Even though I myself have combed through thousands of prints available through Spoonflower, there are always new surprises for me in the picks.
I made a few changes to the process this time in an attempt to streamline it. For example, I asked folks to buy a spot for $1 rather than sign up via the comment section, and that helped keep things more organized. The trickiest part, as it has been for the past two swaps and for any swap as far as I can tell, is the part where people have to send their fabric in. The timeline didn’t stretch as much as the first two, so I’ll call that a “win”. There were three people who fell off of the face of the earth, but fortunately there were some last-minute heroes. The biggest happy part of the whole scenario is that these were on their way back to swappers before Thanksgiving! HOOOOOORAY! If you’d like to read more about the past swaps, you’ll find the wrap-ups here and here.
