At least regarding this...
Late last night these strange feelings invaded, rooted I'm sure in my insecurities. What if she doesn't like it? What if our tastes are completely different?, etc. I was doubting my decision to send handmade items to someone I don't know really know much about. Silly I know, but those doubts were assaulting me.
This morning I came full circle by realizing that the overall purpose of this swap is to get to know fellow bloggers a little better, meet someone new and share a bit of our lives. Discover things we have in common and discover something new. Connect. Relate. Share. It is for fun, therefore insecurities are no longer allowed. I let them go and mailed off my packages with a sense of excitement. I can't wait for her to receive them and I can hardly wait to discover her favorite things!
Have you ever participated in a swap before? What was your experience like?
