I love doing swaps and have always toyed with the idea of hosting one but was really daunted by the idea. Last night I was talking with Kristy from Simply This Life about a swap idea and the next thing I knew we had arranged our first swap.
This is going to be a bigger commitment because it’s a year long endeavor, so please, please don’t sign up unless you’re really sure you can fulfill the obligation.
The idea is this, every quarter you’ll send a gift to someone during their birthday month and then come your birthday month, you’ll get 4 awesome presents. Each package will contain one handmade item, craft supplies, and then a fun locally purchased gift or food item.
Now unfortunately for my international readers, we are only going to have this swap open to the continental US. You will be sending out a package once a quarter and feel that the financial obligation of shipping 4 packages internationally is just too much.
Due to the nature of this swap, we are going to have to limit the number of swappers. And once we fill all the slots in a particular quarter, we’ll stop taking any more participants with birthdays in those months. We will try our best to let you know when that happens!
Are you ready to take the plunge and sign up? Carefully read the full list of rules and then fill out the questionnaire.
