MY EASTER SWAP 2013


I decided that I, too, will have an Easter Swap! As the sign says, anything goes! You can make whatever you want for this swap - creativity is the only limit. (If you are not a crafter, just purchase items instead of making them.) Here are some ideas:

A small wreath
(no bigger than 6")


A decorated egg
(styrofoam, plastic, etc.)


A matchbox


A wood object


A small birdhouse


A little basket


A tag or banner


Sew a little something


There are so many other ideas, these are just the tip of the iceberg! Now for the details.

Sign up will end Thursday, February 28. Easter is Sunday, March 31.  The only restriction is that you must have a blog to join, so we can see what you received! International partners welcome! Mail your creations to your swap partner by Friday, March 22 at the latest. That will give you 2 - 3 weeks to work on it.

As usual, feel free to add other little goodies to the package (candy, decorations, ephemera, doo-dads) - that's part of the fun! Just don't go overboard with the spending.

SIGN UP ON THIS BLOG POST ONLY! If you do not want an international partner, please let me know. If I've left anything out, contact me.

3, 2, 1, sign up now!

Hi Sue,
It's fun to see some of Sandy's Easter/Spring Swap pals have signed up, too. I am already making things up for my partner Joyce for Sandy's Easter Swap and I thought..."Why not just make two while I'm at it." What terrific fun.
I am excited to join in and look forward to hearing who my swap pal will be.
Thank you for hosting, Sue. I appreciate the work and time that you are willing to invest.
Blessings and friendship,
Carolynn xoxo
ps. I LOVE REDNESDAYS!

Please forgive me, Sue...I posted your blog button instead of your cute Eastery button. I'm so frustrated with my new laptop and Windows 8. The learning curve is killing me!
Smiles,

I just tried leaving a comment but am not sure if it posted - it said some error message when I tried. Anyhow, thanks so much for visiting and leaving the nice comment. I loved hearing from you. I can't wait to see what all the ladies come up with in the swap, it will be fun to see everything. Someday I'll have time to join swaps!
Hugs,
Julie
