“All things I Love”

I was very vague, in the previous post, and for that I apologize.
Let me give you the details....

a swap: an exchange (package in the mail) between two people who may have never met before, but will soon be new friends. This makes it even more fun, because you are able to get to know someone through the fun things they give you. And you get to tell a little about yourself, by the things you send to them.

theme: "all the things I love" -- because showing others what you love is so much fun, and hopefully it helps others find some new things that will soon be their favorites.
example: If you love flowers you could send a print of your favorite flower, a painting of your favorite flower, or a packet of seeds of your favorite flower (this could be one of your items in your package). Make sense??

price/budget: I say about $15-20. Your "favorite things" can be all purchased, all homemade (because time is money and materials still cost money), or a little of both. On the last swap I did, the lovely Lindsey (my swap partner) sent me all things that she made, and it was fabulous. I am not as talented, so I sent her one of my handmade headbands, and then the rest I purchased.
(You can refer to this post to see what I sent my partner, and here to see what she sent me)

more details: Once everyone who wants to signs up has done so, I will randomly pair everyone up, and post them on May 1st. Each person will have a link either to their blog or email, where you and your partner can exchange emails and figure out how you are going to go about swapping (exchange addresses and so forth). You then will have about two to three weeks to get your purchases together (I will post a date that the packages should be in the mail) and then you send them off to your partner, and wait for yours to come. That simple. It's all about making new friends, getting fun things in the mail (cause nothing is better), and having some fun!

So if you would like to be in on some fun: comment here, or the previous post, and you will be part of the “All things I love” swap.
It’s going to be loads of fun!!
