PREPPY SPRING SWAP!



I decided to go ahead and host the Preppy Spring Swap.
I have never participated in a swap, much less hosted one so I'll try keep it pretty simple.

RULES:

Sign up by: March 26
I'll post partners on: March 29-30
Send out items by: April 18

Budget: $20 (not including shipping)

To sign up: email me at connecticutcharm@hotmail.com with your name, mailing address and blog address.

I will list randomly selected partners on my blog by first name (or nickname) with links to their blogs so you can check out your partners blog for inspiration! I will send you an email with your partners email and home address on the day I post them.

Theme: Preppy Spring with a color theme of pink and green.

Details: You will send your partner 6 items (somewhat preppy, springy) in the colors pink and green. Items can be homemade, secondhand, candy, thrift store find, whatever.

Each item must represent 1 letter in the word SPRING.
Example (but not limited to):
S - stickers
P - pencils
R - really pretty picture
I - interesting Spring recipe
N - notecards
G - green ribbon

Use your imagination and creativity to make things fit. I think this will be fun! I think I covered everything. If not and anyone has any questions, leave a comment or email me at connecticutcharm@hotmail.com.

Happy Spring and have fun!!

That's odd - I signed up last week, but I don't see my name on here. Hopefully you have me in for the swap. Thank you so much.

Kimberly - I do not have your name and address to be entered into the swap. So sorry, there must have been a mix up! Email me at connecticutcharm@hotmail.com with the information stated in the rules and I can still enter you in!

OmG, I just found out about this today the last day of March, if you have an odd number I would gladly take a partner to swap with, and if not I hope to join the next one. What a terrific fun Idea!
