I'm participating in my first scrap swap. I know, sounds corny and uber-crafty (bad? good?), but it's finally a way to rid myself of the scraps that have been accumulating from various projects that I'm not likely to use any time soon, and get something funky in return. What I particularly like about it is that it's spread out. The person organizing it is in Colorado and participants can be from anywhere else, which means the likelihood that I'm going to get something I can't just buy here myself is that much higher.
And, I get mail. Who doesn't like getting mail that's not bills?
