The Sweet Tweet Swap is full and partners have been assigned.
If you are in this swap, (players are listed at the bottom of this post), and did not receive an
e-mail PLEASE let me know.
These are the instructions for the swap players, (at the bottom of the post). I have had several questions from people who are not familiar with swaps, so I decided to post the instructions for all to read.
1. You have been assigned a swap partner. You will mail your partner a box of goodies, (bird, nest, Spring theme), and your partner will mail you a box of goodies! Boxes will be postmarked on or before May 20th.
- In some swaps, you will not have the same partner. I prefer to pair up people because if you receive a package from someone, you will be more apt to make sure you mail that person a package back!
2. E-mail you partner. If they have a blog, visit. Ask your partner any questions that might help you decide what to send. What is your favorite color? What is your favorite decorating color? Do you have a specific style? The great thing about this theme is that anything with a bird/nest goes with ANY style.
3. This swap has to contain one handmade item, and one "sweet" item. The handmade item does not have to be made by you. The sweet item is your interpretation. It can by candy (ask your partner her favorite candy), or "sweet" as in really special (again, ask what they collect, or if they are an artist/crafter their favorite crafting supply). The swap is to have at least a $20.00 value.
4. This swap has a bird, nest, Spring theme (Sweet Tweet). All items you send your partner need to fit into this category. You need to send your partner at least two items (handmade and sweet), but can send more. It seems that the swap boxes I receive usually have at least 5 items in them. It is fun to get a variety of items even if they are small. As I was browsing a local store, I found many items that would fit this theme; cards, rubber stamps, dish cloths, wall plaques, twig nests, scrapbook paper, magnets, bird nick nacks, picture frames, ribbon (bird's make nests with this!), wrapping paper, robin eggs, stickers, little crafting birds, bird recipe cards, bird houses, and bird feeders . I searched lollishops and etsy and found bird's nest earrings, egg shaped soap, bird tags, felted birds, nest art prints, pennants, bird teacups, bird bookmarks, a sweet memory box with a bird on top, bird notecards, bird/nest banners, and more!
5. Wrap up some or all of your items. They can be wrapped in tissue paper/wrapping paper and ribbons. It's fun to get wrapping supplies you can recycle! Unwrapping your gifts adds to the excitement. Please include a little note with your gifts.
Look at this wonderful bird kit: http://lollishops.com/node/29522 for someone who is a crafter.Remember ladies, if you have any questions, or need help, please e-mail me!
