What is a craft Swap?
A craft swap is, quite simply, when people who love to create make a gifts for each other. In a time where everything is digital, taking the time to make something with your hands feels profound and made all the more significant to share that excitement with strangers and new friends. While basic in concept, the idea of swapping has cultivated online communities and formed new friendships. Bee Creative Swaps is here to keep that going by hosting themed craft swaps, giveaways, and more. We hope you'll give it a try and bee creative with us!
Bee Creative Swaps was started by Lizette from Creativity Lizette and Emily from The Morose Bee as a long distance friendship and a mutual desire to create. With Lizette in California and Emily in Massachusetts, we began to make gifts for each other, share our creative process, and invite others to join us. The swaps grew from just a handful of friends to dozens of people all over the world signing up for our swaps! Our signature swap is the Viva La Frida swap we do every summer in honor of the birthday of our favorite artist, Frida Kahlo. Other swaps throughout the year have themes ranging from animation, Christmas stocking stuffers, New Years resolutions, and more! We hope you'll join us for a swap and share your creativity with us!
