Some fall decorating and CHRISTMAS BOX/JAR SWAP
Now, finally about the CHRISTMAS BOX, OR JAR SWAP.
I decided that some might not join if they have to alter a box, so their are two options. I have not done a jar swap, but I know I would sure love a mason ,(esp.) blue, full of Christmas goodies. I learned from the host of my last swap, so really good ideas when swapping. So here are the rules.
1. Send me your address by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . If that fails to go through just message me on this blog.
2. Please leave me a message here that you are interested.
3. When you email me please state if you are using a BOX, or a JAR.
4. Aso tell me what you would prefer to receive.
Now that may be complicated and I will try to work that out on my end. I know I will do a cigar box most likely, but would love a jar. You can also say that you don't care what you receive. I will try to match people. I like that because you get to know the other person.
5. It is up to you what you put in the jars.
Be creative. Please don't fill with items from the dollar store. I know you wouldn't do that, would you. Christmas or holidays items, please. You can make things to put inside.
Actually that would be such a nice touch. You don't have to go overboard. You can put supplies inside. My head is spinning with ideas.
6. In your email to me please send some ideas. Such as:
a. What colors you like at Christmas.
b. Do you like religious items
c. What is your style: examples such as cottage, country, victorian, eclectric, modern, Me, etc.
d. You can begin to sign up now. I will keep the swap open til October 15 but I will begin to assign as people sign up.
e. I think we should mail before Thanksgiving. It gets too crazy after that.
f. If you don't celebrate Christmas we can do snow, or winter or something else.
I think that is enough rules for right now. If you think of something I have forgotten please let me know. This is the first time I have organized a blog swap, so bear with me. I think this will be great fun, don't you.
