Ik schreef al bij je zus dat ik vind dat jullie er een leuke swap van hebben gemaakt. Ik heb er even over nagedacht, maar ik doe toch maar niet mee. Ik heb nog zoveel dingen op mijn programma staan, daarom had ik ook al besloten dit jaar minder swaps te doen. Ook voel ik mij te onzeker als het gaat om iets naaien, papier is meer mijn ding, maar ik wil jullie heel veel plezier wensen, ben al benieuwd naar resultaten op jullie blogs!

Roos said...

Ik heb nog nooit meegedaan met een swap, en moest eerst opzoeken wat het zo'n beetje inhoud.
En....het lijkt mij reuze leuk om mee te doen, ik stuur mijn email adres naar je toe, groetjes Roos
