My own Swap Bag

I made this lovely bag to carry my swaps at SU! events.  

Check out the windows on the front to show off your swap! There's two on each side!
They are 6"x6", so it holds vertical and horizontal card fronts.
You can use all four or just two, it's up to how many swaps you want to make! 

Handy side pockets to hold a few tools, like your Paper Snips, Snail, name tag and other things.
They have some elastic at the top to keep the pocket opening a little closer to the bag.

Now for the inside. See those beautiful dividers? Those are for you to put your swaps in. On the outside you have a sample of what swaps are in each pocket, making it so simple to keep track of them. The big one in the middle is for all those great swaps in! It can hold quite a few!

 It's pretty durable too, you won't have to worry about it ripping from all those swaps.
I'm working on making the pattern and instructions available for download, and made bags ready for purchase. If you want to be on my email list for when it is available, be sure to subscribe to my blog!

Paper Pumpkin for just $10!

I know, you're probably thinking "What is it and what makes you think I want it?".

Paper Pumpkin is a 30-minute creativity escape. It comes with everything you need 
to create a sweet project: the ink, exclusive to Paper Pumpkin stamps, pre-cut card 
stock and embellishments, just grab your SNAIL and go! The best part is, it's 
delivered to your door in a pretty red box every month. I love mine. I look forward 
to the shipping email every month saying my surprise is on it's way! And it really 
is a surprise! After the first month where you get your Welcome Kit, it's a new 
design every month, no repeats!
Join Paper Pumpkin  now through Aug. 31 you can get your own kits for only $10 
a month for the first two months!* After your first two months, keep the creativity 
coming every month for only $19.95—shipping included! Here's another great thing 
about it. Say you're going to be gone on a vacation for a month (we can dream, right?) 
and you won't be able to work on your kit, you can suspend it for a month and then 
have it start up again next month! You don't have to cancel and sign back up later! 
And if you don't want to continue your subscription, you can stop the shipments 
altogether without it being a pain to do so.
Here's how to do it:
