Interview with Katie of Loves of Life

A brand new swapper! Katie had never even been in a swap but here she is, hosting the Scarf Swap! Brave! Let's meet her and visit her blog!

SwapDex: Tell us a bit about you.

Katie: I'm 24...live in the good old US of A, in South Eastern PA. Married for over 2 years to my HS sweetheart (from rival high schools, haha), with a 1 year old terror, I mean, terrier named Mac. Currently have no kids, but working on it :) I do some crafting...love to paint and re-do rooms in my house, fix up old things, make jewelry, paint murals...

SD: How long have you been swapping? How did you first learn about swapping, and what made you decide to start?

K: I have never hosted a swap before OR participated in a swap before. Wow. Maybe you should not be interviewing me :) haha.

SD: What's your favorite swap you've ever been in or hosted?

K: THIS scarf swap because it's the only one I've ever done. Plus, I LOVE SCARVES and think that you can't go wrong adding a new one to your collection.

SD: Do you have a good story about hosting or participating in a swap?

K: This isn't about a swap..but a giveaway. I won a really awesome homemade button bag (they are sold on Etsy), and the bag came filled with lip glosses galore! I was SO excited because I personally love lip gloss and now I don't have to restock for a very long time. Plus, they were awesome brands of lip gloss too.

SD: What do you think is the most challenging part of hosting a swap? Any advice for someone who is thinking about hosting a swap?

K: Being organized. I am realizing how overwhelming it can be. I think in the future I may set up an email that is meant JUST for swapping. Right now I have to sift through emails that are personal, blog commenters, or swap emails. It can be challenging to be organized.

SD: Any exciting plans for the near future? Swaps, projects, new products?

K: We will see how this one goes, and then I'll let you know!

SD: Thanks Katie! We're so happy to have you in the swapping family! Best of luck with your very first swap and I hope you continue on to participate and host many more!
