STS (Shop The Swap) Spring Market 2021 Discussion

@susieoregon and @Lynx2Lancer are right. I would encourage you to make things you love making! Some things will find a forever home right away, while others won’t immediately attract attention. And that’s okay too…these items are just waiting for the right homes :wink: There are typically future rounds of STS for unsold items and new swappers join.

For those who are new to this swap and thinking about participating, you just need to have 5 handmade items to start off with. You may add new items to your shop throughout the swapping period :slight_smile:

I have sooooo many four and five leaf clovers…
they plague me and my garden.
Anyone know what I can make with these?
Always up for trying new crafts. Ruler for size, and they are being pressed now.

On another note, how often do these STS things happen?
I don’t think I can participate in this round, but I would love to participate in future rounds!
Do people still like pressed flower stuff?

Resin jewelry? Tiny Necklaces or hanging ornaments?

Typically twice a year - fall and spring.
We take a break during winter (holidays!) and summer (nice weather!) :smiley:
There’s plenty of time to make and stash away handcrafted items between rounds!

I love pressed flowers!!!

I took some photos of my completed items today. Hoping to get the sewing machine out tomorrow and finish up those 3 wip, but work is getting in the way!

I haven’t done this swap in such a long time!
Was recently trying to organize my craft room & came across so many STS
items with fond memories attached!
Maybe this will be the round I can jump back in if I have enough stuff ready to
post!

Totally! I treasure all the wonderful goodies I’ve claimed in previous rounds of this swap :slight_smile:
Hope you can join us!

I’ve used pressed flowers or clover leaves as decoration for bookmarks.

I have an file full of pressed flowers for a project I did a few years ago.
I need a few four leaf clovers for good luck.

Sorry to keep asking questions, but what about paper flowers? Does that count?

No worries about asking questions :slight_smile:

If you made the paper flowers, they count as handcrafted.

I’ll be joining soon. I just need to make sure I can get to my 5 handmade items! Hopefully I’ll have some time this weekend to add to my arsenal.
