Do Ya Wanna Join ?

H A P P Y    N E W    Y E A R   everyone !


I would like to host a gift swap but before you turn away...
it will only be 1 gift....4 times a year...
hence the name .... "Once a Season Swap".
The commitment is: 
If you want to receive a gift then you must give a gift.

Each participant will be allocated a partner (a different one each season).... but sssh... keep the name a secret.... and then you can either make or purchase a gift and post it off to your partner on the due date. Don't worry you'll get plenty of time to whip something up... but remember it has to be "seasonal". The first swap will be for Autumn (here in Australia) and the gift should be posted on March 1st (to your local swap partner) and the last week of February (for international swap partners). That way we'll all receive our gifts about the same time. Remember, nothing too expensive or too time consuming and consider the postal costs too.  The gift can be crafty or personal, it's up to YoU. Lets make this about FuN because I don't know anyone who doesn't like to receive a surprise in the mail !
For example:
Autumn could be a gift of a hand/kitchen towel with autumn leaves... or a small table mat in autumn colours... or browns/creams/ orange cottons... burgundy nail polish ???....
Winter gift... a chockie & a magazine.... or a few flannel fabrics...
Spring... something with pretty flowers on it...
Summer.... well ...you get the picture.

So PLeAsE... if you are interested... just email me before the 25th January for the Aussie "Autumn" swap leaving details of your: 1.Name - 2.Blog address - 3.email address - 4.Postal address -  5.If you are happy to post internationally - 6.If you want to stay in the swap for all 4 seasons.
You can register anytime between swaps for the next swap...
so tell your friends.
Then just keep an eye out for future postings and reminders.
I will give a longer notice period next swap but time was cut a little short this time because of Christmas & New Year!
Come on, join in and please pass the word around !
The more the merrier !
