Let me back up a little bit for those of you who aren't following the topic. A swap is where you give a package (usually with a specific theme) to another person (usually someone you've never met) and then receive a package for you. To make things even, you typically trade packages with a person, as opposed to sending to one person and receiving from a different person. Packages need to be mailed by a certain date (don't worry...I'll give you plenty of time!) and are within a price range (usually between $15 to $25). Hand-crafted items are highly encouraged. Also, I'd expect all participants to keep in touch through emails, to make sure they still intend to send a package.
Done with the nitty gritty. Let's talk about a theme! I've done a couple "Favorite Things" swaps, where you put together a package of your favorite things (lip gloss, book, movie, candy, lotion, picture of Taylor Lautner with his shirt off...whatever you like best) and share those with your partner. Those are fun. And fairly easy. Then there are the swaps for holidays. We'd be too close to Valentine's Day but Easter is still fair game. I've also done a "Birthday" swap. I sent my partner everything she'd need for a birthday party: cake mix, party favors, a book on party planning for kids, etc. Lots of options and I'm open to hear more, if you have 'em!
In your comments please tell me two things:
1 - If you'd be interested in taking part (this is not the actual signup, just gauging interest).
2 - What theme you like best.
