I found a great craft site some months back called One Hour Craft, it's linked on the right. Aside from craft ideas, they have swaps and the first one I entered was a tote swap. Pretty easy, make a tote and send it to your partner who is sending you a tote. Here's the tote I got from my swapper in England. Super cute and perfect for a grocery shopping bag.
So now my bag is living the dream in jolly old England.
The next swap is an apron swap so we'll see if my apron gets to visit an exotic locale as well.
