I love finding good tutorials online. These are step-by-step instructions for a specific craft/project (usually with lots of pics). Sometimes they give inspiration for another project, but I find it so nice not having to think and plan on how to reach a specific endpoint.

So for this swap let's trade good tuts that we've found online!

We will each send at least 2 links to AWESOME tutorials to each partner. These can be found online - I know Craftster has a bunch.

I've set the # of partners @ 20 so that we can all send to everyone in the swap. That way we'll each have lots of projects to choose from.

Newbies welcome! If you have a rating of less than 4 pls msg me with an explanation and I'm sure we can work things out :)

This is a fabulous idea! Oh and I know of some great links to entire projects that I really enjoy making!!

So glad you like it!! Martha Stewart even has some great ones.

I enjoy finding and making tutes. Is it ok to mix some of mine with the found ones if it meets my partner's craft preference?

LesleyKnitsPretty 07/31/2010 #

@ pumpkinniki Absolutely!

I'm so glad so many people signed up for this swap already!! I can't wait to get crafting! :) If we go over 20 people I will send my tuts to everyone, and if ppl want they can post their email addresses so other people can send them theirs too even if they're not assigned as their partners.

Oh holy cow! I've already started the draft email and just kept adding and adding and adding! Now I noticed we will have 20 partners! I hope I am not overloading people! I think I'll go back and weed out some of them! LOL

LesleyKnitsPretty 08/ 6/2010 #

haha there are so many great tutorials out there :) I keep finding tons too!

pumpkinniki 08/ 6/2010 #

I am not doing a good job at weeding them out since I keep adding more! LOL

Thanks for this swap! I've had a ball!

Hi all I sent out my tutorials tonight and I had to laugh because I included my own email in the senders list to see how it would look for everyone else... Well half an hour goes by and I still don't receive my email, come to find out, IT WENT INTO SPAM! This is the first I've ever heard of someone spamming themselves haha!

Anyway, please check your spam folders for emails in the swap before you give anyone a poor rating. This is a great swap, and I am so glad I could participate! I'm loving all the tutorials that have been sent in so far! xoxo
