Holy Swap! Gimme Your Stuff!

Gimme Your Stuff

I found Gimme Your Stuff while blog hopping this evening. You see, I don't get to spend a lot of time in front of the computer but I've been under "house arrest" since Saturday. I had to undergo a minor surgery last Friday, September 28 (more on this later).
I got super excited when I started exploring their site. What fun! The idea of exchanging stuff with people from other countries! Such glee! So I said to myself "How does this work?" Ok, so I buckled down, created my blog... Here goes!

I'm a visual artist/art educator based in Manila. I married my super best friend, Alfred. He's a professional photographer. We live in our cozy apartment with our dogs- Max "The Chow" and Vinci "The Beagle". I love art,design,fashion, travelling, books, cooking, crafts, and shopping! I guess I'm a girly girl with a dash of Martha Stewart, a pinch of Nicole Kidman, plus a hint of Frida Kahlo. Complicated? A bit, yes but still fun.

So Gimme Your Stuff! Swap with me. I would love love love to receive
clothing, fabric, buttons, accessories, vintage postcards, stamps, naive and found objects, artist trading cards (ATCs), food stuff, maps from your country, photos, trinkets that I can use for my artworks.

Just let me know what you might be interested in. I live in beautiful and sunny Philippines which is composed of more than 7,000 islands. Our culture is very rich and diverse. We're also a very artistic and fun loving bunch. As long as it's not illegal, I'll try to get the stuff ready for swapping. Leave a comment or send me an e-mail? I'll be waiting!

I can't tell you how excited I am to start this great adventure.

Trade Policy: Please be honest and be fair - I will recommend you if you make the trade smooth sailing and relatively headache free. But if not... I will warn other traders not to swap with you. So please, just be fair. Have fun swapping!

Hello Pia, firstly thanks for your interest and nice to meet you. I believe this GIVEMEURSTUFF site is a wonderful idea as you get to taste a bit of different culture and meet new people as well! :)
Im currently studying final year of graphic design and i really like the idea of swapping with an artist !! However, i hope we can perhaps arrange the swap for next month instead as work is getting a bit heavy for me at current. Anyway take care and hope you are feeling better soon! x

I’d like to swap with you. Okay, that sounds kind of weird. I am new to the whole swapping and blogging scene. I recently signed up with Gimme Your Stuff and Swap-bot, and I am really excited about meeting new people from around the world. Let me know if you’d be interested in exchanging with me. I am in Northern California about 25 miles outside of San Francisco.
