You still have time to sign up. I will be closing the swap on Friday. I put together a couple samples of "cups" so you could see the idea. I did these quickly and would add more before I sent them off. The first one is what I would call COTTAGE. I used a old granite cup from a barn sale. Inside are a snowman, heart and flower ornament. Also a bottle tree, some packaged teas and a little vintage bell on the handle. I would most likely add some candy to the bottom and maybe include a couple other things that didn't fit in the cup. Simple, easy, and not expensive. The next one is VINTAGE using a aqua mason jar (there are people that drink from these jars, you know) This was hard to get a clear picture of with my little point and shoot. I just added some vintage Christmas ball ornaments, a vintage candy cane made from pipe cleaners, packaged tea, a tiny tree and a porcelain scotty dog. I tied some ribbons around the top. You could add so much more. Okay, now that you have the idea of how easy this is........leave a comment telling me you want to sign up. I need to know your "style" and what kind of hot drink you enjoy. (tea, coffee, hot chocolate) Be creative and think what you would like to receive. Make it "COZY" girls. I will choose partners this week-end. You have til December 5th to mail. The sooner the better. I had to wait in a long line yesterday mailing a swap package.
I have figured out why I like these swaps so much. I was a part of a group of friends that got together often. At Christmas we all made each other something......we each took home 12 gifts. It was so much fun. The group got too busy and stopped meeting. I really miss that. Friends that shared the same thing I liked. So now my bloggy friends have such sweet swaps. No one on my Christmas list likes cottage, vintage, farmhouse.......no one. So this is like my Christmas. How about you. Why do you join swaps.
