On Swap-Bot, as in life, there are unfortunately a few who don’t fulfill their obligations. “Flakers” is what they’re called on Swap-Bot. Luckily there are responsible people, too; the “good swappers.” The best of these good people are “Swap Angels” – those who send something to a “good swapper” who has been victimized by a “flaker” so they get something “nice” in the “mail” anyway. (Whoops, got carried away there for a sec.)
I’ve been swapping on Swap-Bot for a couple of months now and decided it was high time I did some Swap Angeling (not Swap Angling, which could be defined as the act of trying to get yourself into a swap you clearly had no business being in). Wow, I made up another swapping term! This is fun.
Anyway, the girl I’ve decided to “angel” (on Swap-Bot, that’s a verb) loves a bright palette and says she is getting into cooking and journaling. What more perfect surprise than a brightly colored recipe journal? (If you think of a better one, please don’t tell me, ’cause I’m ridiculously proud of having thought of this.) It was simple to put together; ingredients were one hot pink lined journal from the $1.00 bin at Michael’s, a scrap of paper, chipboard letters, paint, silk flowers, ribbon and a brad. I have a couple other little items to send along with it, but I’m hoping this will be her favorite. 🙂
Yep. Those are some bright colors, all right.
