I absolutely adore sending and receiving mail or correspondence of any kind.
I think one of life's greatest delights
is in finding a bundle of mail in the post-box,
or seeing a package covered in stamps waiting by the door
In this fast-paced, technological world I still prefer the post.
That's partly why I have decided to hold a swap. I have now taken part in two blog-initiated swaps (a Christmas one last year through which I met the beautiful Sara and a market tote one by the wonderfully creative Allison) - they were both a lot of fun and I have wanted to start one for a long time but was waiting for a good theme and a good time. I say October/November is a brilliant time for a swap; we don't need to fall into the Christmas theme; and we're all getting a bit tired and need a little cheer to get us through the busy months.
It shall be an alphabet swap.
What is an alphabet swap you say?
Well - it is quite literally a swap centred on letters of the alphabet. You and your mystery partner will both get the same letter and will have to come up with a box of little things related to that letter. There is no need to get too extravagant or spend OVER $30 - but be as creative and inventive as you like; you could include craft supplies, little treasures, words, foodstuff -ANYTHING! I know, dear readers, you are all fabulously interesting and original so let there be no limit to your ideas!
If you would like to take part email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, blog/website if you have one, and if you'd be happy to swap internationally.
Tell all your friends too.
I will announce the alphabet swappers Saturday (the 18th) So you have ONE week to sign up!
