Fall Time Favorites Swap

What- It's September?! I'm still accepting the fact that summertime is over and it's time to create school routines again. I LOVE the change of the seasons and the fact that the holidays are coming up!

It must be time for another fall gift exchange!

Anyone can participate by gathering together some fun Fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving items: decorations, treats, paper crafts, accessories, you name it! The items should come to a value of $15. They could be handmade or store bought, or a combination of the two. Though I always love handmade items, I don't want to discourage anyone who doesn't feel "crafty" from joining the swap. Remember this is a "favorites" swap so really think about what your favorite fall items are. The best swaps are personalized and unique!

Here's how to participate:

If you haven't already, enroll in Swaperoos Group by paying the $5 membership fee (1 Year Membership), go here for details or click on the Paypal option on the right.
Email me (Make sure you spell my name right with "i" before "r"!)

Email me your address and
tell me 5 things about yourself that you want your swap partner to know about you so she can customize their gift to your needs/family size/particular likes.

I will pair you with your swap partner by September 12.
Create or buy your fall-time favorite items, package them up and send them to your swap partner by September 27.
{please note the date has changed} PLEASE HAVE YOUR PACKAGE POST MARKED BY MONDAY, SEPT. 27!
Receive your new holiday items, post a picture on the blog, and enjoy!!

**I need your help in promoting this swap!! Grab the button or copy the banner, share it on facebook or twitter, post about it on your blog and post pictures of your gift when you receive it!
When you become a member of Swaperoos, you will have access to this blog to post sneak peaks and thank yous to your swap partner! Please share with me any suggestions you may have along the way.****
