veggie snail mail crafty swap

Some gals are organizing a Vegan Pal Swap. Check it out! It's kinda like those "secret pal" swaps all the knitters are doing. Check it out, join in! (you don't have to be vegan)


Here's my questionnaire:

1.) What is your craft, & how long have you been doing it?
Knit, sew, papercrafts, bead, cook -- since ages ago but I'm not a pro at any of them

2.) Are you a vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, veg-friendly or other?
Vegan

3.) What is your favorite color(s)? Do you particularly dislike a color(s)?
Pink and purple are lovely, and I like all colours

4.) Do you have any allergies (such as pets, foods or cigarette smoke)?
No

5.) Do you have any companion animals? If so, names and types?
No

6.) Do you collect anything?
Zines, hearts, pink kitchen things, tea towels, Lisa Simpson, anatomy images, librarian images, 1" buttons, fancy paper

7.) Do you have a favorite vegan food, snack or dish? If no fav that's vegan (for those who aren't vegan), what's your favorite food? (Hopefully your pal can find a vegan version!)
Any vegan candy or chocolate would be a nice treat. I love pad thai best, but you can't mail that!

8.) What tools/supplies/accessories for your craft(s) are you wishing you had but don't? Also, what do you have TOO many of? (basically a wish and anti-wish list)
Plastic or wood knitting needles of any size (no aluminum please), paper punch with fun shape, rubber stamps, stitch markers

9.) What type of handmade item would tickle your fancy? What don't you like? (Keep in mind this swap is open to all types of crafters.)
Earrings, stationary, mixed CD, zines, Christmas tree ornament, whatever!

10.) Is there anything else you would like your pal to know about you?
That's all!

Thanks for the linkage. =) I'm getting antsy to start and we still have 2 weekups of signups... Well, more time to get more participants!

When I was looking at Secret Pal earlier this month, I was thinking how awesome it would be to have a vegan-friendly version. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no money to spoil others with. Hopefully Vegan Pal sticks around and I can try it later.

Or maybe I'll rob my savings.

I wish we could send FOOD! That would be awesome. maybe one day it will happen in specific cities. The group could drop it off at people's houses. yum :)
