SCRAP SWAP! Be a part of the happy mail fun!
EDIT: WE NEED ONE MORE PARTICIPANT TO HAVE EVEN SETS OF SWAP PARTNERS! AN EMAIL SHOULD BE GOING OUT TOMORROW!!!
Alright ladies (and maybe gentlemen)! It's about time for everyone to get their Spring Clean on and i know that you all have that embarrassingly large stash of scrap and craft supplies that you've been hoarding but are probably never going to use. Sometimes you buy things JUST because they're on sale or because you needed it for a particular project and then never picked it up again. It's really a shame because you hate to get rid of it, because it's still perfectly good, but you wish there was someone that could get more use out of it.
Well now's your chance! I'm organizing a scrap swap! I had such a GREAT response about scrap swapping and I myself couldn't possibly trade with EVERYONE, so that's why we're all going to do it together! Here's how it's going to work:
When you comment with your email address, I'm going to randomly assign partners that way everyone can maybe meet someone new and get some awesome second hand goodies! This swap is for scrapping supplies, craft supplies, and maybe a few little happy mail items you might want to pass on. :) After receiving my email with the swap partners, you can email each other, exchange addresses, learn a little about each other's taste, and send out your packages in a timely manner. It's so easy because there's really no shopping involved! Very quick turnover!!!
Here are the rules:
*Please don't sign up for this swap unless you truly intend to ship out your supplies! We don't want anyone to be left without a package in return!
*The point of this swap is to get rid of supplies in good condition that you no longer see a need for. In other words, feel free to send your partner craft supplies from your own personal stash. You MAY include new items that you buy, but let's all save some money and keep that to a minimum.
*You can talk with your partner about size of packages. It's up to the 2 of you how big you decide to go.
*This time around we're keeping this swap to the States and Canada, that way shipping costs aren't too outrageous for anyone.
*Try and make your package cute for your partner-- have fun with it and give them something cute to open!
This is going to be a fantastic way to Spring Clean, trade out your unused supplies, to get a new batch of supplies you might use! I'm so excited and can't wait to see who my partner is!!!
Please tell your friends and leave a comment with your email address! I will be emailing out the list of partners next week! So excited to make this happen!
