Camper Van Swap

Now, I know I said I wasn't going to blog for a while, but I'm turning into a bit of a Hobbit sitting in my sewing room all day, and I've had a brilliant idea!
.
Here at jb*jb HQ, we love camper vans (Kombi vans) and I was thinking it would be nice to run a camper-van swap...
.
I'm just wondering if anybody would be interested in joining in?
.
You can use whatever craft / talent / skills you like ... sewing, softies, handmade cards, applique pictures, photography .... whatever!
.
I already have a few ideas so I shall be doing it no matter what!
.
How about I leave it open for 3 weeks for people to sign up, (this is when most of the kids in the UK go back to school and we'll all be itching to get stuck into a project!) and then perhaps another 4 weeks to get something made ...?
.
Let me know if you're interested by leaving a comment below and I'll worry about the technicalities at a later date.
.
Bye for now!

Am I the first to sign up? I've always wanted a Camper van (with Cath Kidston curtains like Jamie Oliver's!) they look like such fun! Off to get my thinking cap on - never done a swap before so you'll have to speak slowly and clearly when explaining the technicalities!!!

I AM IN!!!!!!!!

Tip Top said...

Yep count me in!! Will be a card / paperbased product(s) though if that is ok!

Esther said...

Go on then how can I resist? Both hubby and my brother love them though only my brother has owned them.

If I come up with a good idea I might even solve what to do for them for Christmas at the same time:)

Indigo Blue said...

Me! Me!! Meeeeee!!! *hand stretched up VERY high in the air*

As if I wouldn't want to play at this one. I can't wait to get going. Fab idea. :o)

heehee Reading the comments list it's like a secrect camper van fan club. Is it a girl thing, wanting to own one? Our own grown-up Wendy house on wheels.

Pearlyqueen said...

My husband used to repair camper vans, and we've had a couple along the way, so I'm definitely signing up for this...

Lola said...

OK!! I wanna play too! But, I do have one question (don't throw anything at me!) Is a camper van the same thing as a VW bus??? I'm an american, give me a hint!!

Suzie Sews said...

how could I resist...count me in, but I want be on the net again till school is back...will I be too late!!!!

Leah said...

If I'm not too late can I join in too?

Joanne said...

If it's not to late I would also like to sign up for the swap. At this point I have no idea what I would do but it sounds like fun.
This would be my first ever swap. How very exciting.

I'd like to join in pleeeassee. I'm hoping for a little more time from September and this sounds like a great project for late summer. (Ohh and I love the bird song on the blog, sounds like I'm somewhere beautiful)

Vanessa said...

This is my 1st swap I have signed up for, it was the lure of VW Campervans I cannot resist.

Not sure what I'll make and when I'll make it but I'm up for trying new things.
