A Swap!

Leah, from Our Yellow House is organizing a swap.
Sign up, it will be super fun!!
Here are the details, but to sign up you must go to her blog!

February is Here :: Let's Have a Swap!

Though February is the shortest month of the year it often feels like the longest. Many of us find ourselves wishing for more sunlight, warmer temperatures and longing to see the crocuses popping through the cold ground. To me, this sounds like the perfect time to host another swap. Here are my thoughts.

This swap is for us adults. You don't have to be a mother. You don't have to be crafty. You don't have to have a blog. (Though you can be any or all of these things.) You just need to enjoy putting together packages and receiving packages.

Sign up and I will assign everyone a swap partner. We will each choose four things from this list below and spend the next few weeks collecting or making the most special things to include in a package. We will all mail our packages by the end of the month and check our mailboxes excitedly every day. We will slowly open these packages and a smile as wide as the sky will remain on our faces for days. We will be very thankful that we participated in such a cool exchange. Sound good?

Here is the list :

• Something handmade

• An art/craft supply

• A CD - a favorite album or a mix

• An assignment or a list

• Something useful

• Something old

• A book

• A favorite recipe or two

• Something soothing and relaxing

• Something beautiful

• A beginning

Items will most likely fall into more than one of these categories but please include four items. Please spend little or no money on this project. Dig through your yarn stash, your itunes library, your bookshelf, and your creative brains to come up with a package that you yourself would love to receive.

Leave me a comment on this post if you want to participate and make sure I have your email address. I will match you up with a partner and their email address so you can exchange mailing addresses.

If you have a blog then please feel free to tell your readers about this swap. The more the merrier. I will close sign-ups on the night of Friday Feb. 5th and will get out an email list by the end of that weekend with everyone's partner assignment. Please don't be shy. I would love to hear from some of you lurkers out there too! And, of course, from friends near and far.

I will post a list of all of the participants and links in my sidebar. I think this will be fun. A little something to get us through February.
