I'm going through a massive organization haul in my craft room. I am de-stashing things I dont have a use for. These items are either somewhat brand new or used, I dont plan on sending you junk as that belongs in the trash but please keep this in mind that not everything will be unused ( example sticker sheets, sample items etc.) I'm going through my organizing slowly so these are randomly packed packages. If you receive something you can not use, I highly encourage you to do a rak yourself!

This is a usa only swap in order to keep posting low on my end. I left this as an electronic swap because I am the only one sending anything. All you have to do in order to enter is have a 5.0 rating (sorry no newbies for this one. & leave a comment that tells me what one of your crafty or swapping news years resolutions is. The comment must be left by the sign up date which is the 3rd. I have until the 10th to provide you proof of shipping or track.

The package will go to whomever I'm assigned to send to. Please don't forget to rate your partner. Rate a 5 if they left their comment containing one of their new years resolutions no late then the 3rd of January,

Happy 2020!!!

What a wonderful idea!!! Thank you for posting this! My crafty resolution is to also organize my craft room (what I like to call "The Office" so it seems professional hahahaha) Been thinking about joining the "Magic Box" swap to add some cool stuff. I am also going to have to take a load of stuff to the thrift store. Happy New Year!!!

Prettyexpressions 12/29/2019 #

I have decided to do at least 20 swaps a month! I know some do that in a week LOL, but baby steps! I keep a notebook of who I've sent to, and 5 times a month Im going to draw names, and going to send each person something nice! Which gives me more room to get stuff i can actually use for swaps and crafts, such as flip books! I have so much ribbon and washi tape, but I don't think you can ever have too many of that!!

Your awesome to host a generous giveaway! Happy New Year!

sweetgypsy 12/29/2019 #

My crafty new year resolutions: to get my stuff organized (slowly been working on it this past year) and also I want to take time to create for myself in my art journal. Overall it is to focus and get things done that I have on my 'would love to do' list!!! :) Thanks for the giveaway! Happy New Year to you all ! 2020

ArtyBeth3 12/29/2019 #

What a cool idea for a giveaway. 😎 One of my 2020 crafting resolutions is to use each one of my stamps (rubber & clear) to make a note card. A lot of them will become encouragement cards, pen pal, & swap cards. This will help me see what I have, and decide which ones I can use in some sort of giveaway.

auntiejo 12/29/2019 #

My crafty resolution is to finish the Christmas junk journal I was working on, reduce stuff I don't use, and to complete 8 Bucilla Stockings before next Christmas! I am 7.5 away (just need to sew on the back of one of them). Then I will be at 7 to go. I am also going to be doing a RAK myself with stickers and goodies the 2nd week of January and will encourage others to do so as well! :-)

BrandiAlexander 12/29/2019 #

My crafty New Years resolution is to finish 3 Little Golden Book junk journals that I have started for my girls. I also want and need to organize and declutter my craft room. Hopefully I will be better able to focus more time in my craft room. That is my Happy Place! Happy New Year to all.

Bananers 12/29/2019 #

Thank you for posting this swap; it is extremely generous of you to do so (not only because you are giving things away, but also because of the ridiculously high cost of postage these days).

My crafty resolution this year is....to actually make time and actually craft on a regular basis. I signed up for a year long mixed media course (on-line) with hopes that this will help keep me on track with my goal. I also need to really try to "make and sell" or simply just "sell", as I have so much stuff; it really becomes stifling sometimes and since I am now fully retired the $$ would be helpful.

Hyshu 12/30/2019 #

My crafty New Years resolution is to utilize the plastic and cardboard organizing units that I bought just for this purpose instead of not using them and piling more stuff ON TOP of them instead of IN them!

mailsbyjah 12/30/2019 #

My crafty New Years resolution is to explore my arts & crafts potential. I think I have been too complacent with myself on sticking to one type of art - which is using stickers and washi tapes on my mails. I hope that I could also do more customized and personalized items for my penpals and so that I could join a wide variety of swaps here in swap-bot too β™‘

Momskii 12/30/2019 #

My crafty resolution for 2020 is to get rid of some of the stuff that I moved with me (crafty & otherwise) and get my craft room organized. My mother just went into a nursing home and my home is now filled with some of her items. If anyone can use a bunch of stuffed animals send me a pm.

ablev92 12/30/2019 #

Even though im not entering one of my goals this year is to really expand on my crafting ability. As well as being more creative when it comes to packaging up swaps for bot and facebook. Also organizing my craft room:) Love the entry comments so far, good luck everyone

bck 12/30/2019 #

My resolution for the coming year is to start making things for myself. Over the years I have always donated my projects to charities or given them as gifts. In 2020 I plan to knit and crochet scarves and shawls with the expensive yarns that I have recently purchased for ME :)

xthemasonsx 12/31/2019 #

My craft new years resolution is to organize my crafting desk/area & to get my etsy shop open this spring/summer.

cloudjun 12/31/2019 #

I would like to start using things I have he'd for a while instead of hoarding, and to limit my buys on crafts and things for 2020. I would also like to try out new crafting ideas and crafts too.

lynnpinkdaisy 12/31/2019 #

My crafty resolution for 2020 is to finish the smaller craft projects I started throughout 2019, but got side tracked with bigger ones. For some reason, I would start a project that I really liked or an idea I had, and then I would stop mid-way to work on a bigger project for work or craft fairs or something. I want to go back and finish all those projects and see their outcome to the end!

Nevi2018 12/31/2019 #

My crafting resolution is to stay on top of my swaps and not get behind. Only signing up for ones I can actually commit too BY the date given!!

tcornell 12/31/2019 #

Thank you for hosting this generous giveaway. For 2020: I would like to use crafty items that I have but that are still packaged because I feel intimidated by them. I got a gel print plate and a stamp carving set for Christmas, and though I really wanted both of them, I feel intimidated to start using them!

thegiantsmurf 01/ 1/2020 #

Thanks for the giveaway! My resolution would be to organize my craft room. I have recently got into card making so just purchased a bunch of stuff for that and now I don’t have room! Another resolution of mine is to make 50+ cards this year for military family’s!

Kirkdebb 01/ 1/2020 #

My first crafty resolution is to try something new this year. There are so many different kinds of crafts out there! I also need to organize wmy stash. I have too many different nooks and crannies where I have put stuff. It would be wonderful to have it organized so I don't need to run to the store for something I know I have somewhere in the house but can't find.

NaitomeaMinx 01/ 2/2020 #

My Crafty 2020 Resolutions: To try really make my "junk journals" and "fauxbonichi" books from scratch. Usually I just buy premade blank composition books or those dotted bullet journals and then fill them. However, pre-made, means less control over the paper types, and occasionally split spines (that wasn't intentional)--and overall just less of a "lived in" look. So I wanna learn to book bind a little. Nothing crazy, but I want to try to make my journals fully mine.

2Hearts 01/ 2/2020 #

Woo Hoo! What a fun swap! Very creative and different! My 2020 Craft resolution is Super Easy - Finish the Houston Astros mosaic tile tray that I started this past June! I'm pretty sure I will finish - I only have about a month's work (but the hardest part).

JJcrafty 01/ 2/2020 #

I love these kind of swaps. My goal in crafting is to learn something new and declutter.

JudalineZ 01/ 2/2020 #

My goal is keep my craft room more organized and less clutter. And teach my five year old granddaughter who lives with me some craft making.

purple24 01/ 2/2020 #

My crafty New Year’s Resolution is as follows: 1. Complete all my unfinished cross stitch projects. 2. Paint more watercolor paintings. At least 4 per month. 3. Create more cloth dolls. At least 1 per month. Hopefully more.

Murmuration 01/ 2/2020 #

My two part crafty New Year's Resolution is to not buy any new crafting supplies for the next 90 days (even though there are great sales going on at Michaels right now!) and also to spend that time organizing and decluttering the far too many craft supplies that I already own.

Poohtat 01/ 2/2020 #

My crafty resolutions is to get out of my comfort zone. I have lots of tools and products to try but always stick to what I know works. I am going to embrace the fact that sometimes mistakes are quite lovely.

Cabootique 01/ 2/2020 #

I have a few crafty resolutions this year. I want to work on my bullet journal and stick with it this year, and I also want to join a lot more swaps, particularly drawing/painting related ones.

veronicallama 01/ 2/2020 #

I plan to host a mini-pocket letter swap this summer. 9-pockets for a swap is almost always a bigger crafting commitment than I want to make, but I always enjoy making just 3. Thanks for posting!

Dinkyde 01/ 2/2020 #

My resolution is to try new things creatively and have fun in the process.

ChickenSoup 01/ 2/2020 #

My crafty resolution for 2020 is to at least get more organizing bins for all the extra stickers and washi tape I’m stock piling! Cause quite frankly no one wants to work in a mess lol

Jjean 01/ 2/2020 #

My resolution is to finish all my UFO's and to work on a new Journal to be finished by the end of the year..... This is a great swap.

kristyrogers 01/ 3/2020 #

Not joining, but my crafty resolution is to make a mini zines each month all year!

ablev92 01/ 3/2020 #

Please note I had to change the send out date to the 10th. I have decided to do an extra draw as I have another package ready to go. I will pick a name from the comments and do a random generator with all the comments minus mine and the winners name. Good luck!!

bluecrayons 01/ 3/2020 #

my 2020 crafty goals is to find a better organization. my stuff is so mixed up it's hard to find things.

i'd also must finish these 5 scrapbooks i have previously started.

i want to use all of these canvas pieces i have laying around.

also i need to declutter like you.

thanks for a great reminder of our goals so we can get them done.

GirlMomToTwo 01/ 3/2020 #

My crafty goals are to be more organized! And not only more organized but to clean up with I'm done! I love decorating deco pages and creating friendship books, but then I leave all the materials out on my table for days!!!

Dibrittain 01/ 3/2020 #

My crafty goals for 2020 is to get it all organized and get all the holiday crafts done so they are ready for this year as gifts. I have bought so much craft stuff from Dollar Tree and have yet to get one project fully done. I am working on getting the table cleared off for crafting. Plus getting my fbs decos and other stuff mailed out by the end of the month.

SatisHuman 01/ 3/2020 #

My crafting resolution is to get more organized. My craft supplies are scattered about and I need to manage them better. I also want to learn at least one new craft.

sherig47 01/ 3/2020 #

Thanks for hosting this great swap. My crafty resolution is to send more of the cards and things I make. My finished cards are in a card box.

Tverne05 01/ 3/2020 #

What a great idea! Thanks for hosting this swap. My main crafty goal is to clean up as I go and put things back where they belong before starting on another project. Whew! I can do this. This will help to cut down on clutter in my office.

Taedybear 01/ 9/2020 #

Although my comment is super duper late, I’d still like to type my resolution. My swapping resolution for the year 2020 is to send out swaps the day before or the day it is supposed to be sent out. I haven’t been doing so well due to the weather where I live and because of work. I will also try my best to send out heartfelt letters and some gifts along with flat mails.
