    Fill the Box Four S Exchange

    "Four S" you say?

    Spring/Summer Secret Swapper Exchange

    The theme for this swap is anything related to Spring and Summer. Anything goes that in your mind relates to Spring and/or Summer. I'm thinking that you could even include hatching eggs, if you so choose, as long as your swapper has agreed that hatching eggs are fine with them.
    HERE'S A KICKER: At least two items in the box must be ANY SORT of handmade item. (Cooked, beaded, crochet, knit, quilted, sewn, spinning, woodwork, painted....any type of item that was created by YOU).

    This swap is open go guys and gals alike.

    We are going to fill the medium Priority Mail Flat Rate box. The +/- $10 one size...the square one, not the "shirt" flat type one. The box doesn't have to be 'stuffed' full, so do allow for stuffing and bubble wrap, etc, for safe shipping of items.

    This will be a secret exchange. Please include a card in your box identifying yourself to your swapper.

    Anyone is allowed to join. PLEASE if you join, keep your commitment. If life deals you lemons and you can't get the lemonade made, please notify me (amyquilt), the exchange coordinator, immediately.

    Due date to have your box mailed to your swapper is no later than April 30, 2009.

    This is not a "cheap" swap, but when the idea came to mind, I thought it would be fun.

    Here's a short questionnaire so your swap partner has a little info about you. Please copy it and paste it in your post when you sign up with your answers!

    1. Do you like to garden? What is your growing zone?

    2. Would you like to receive hatching eggs if your swapper wants to include them? IF YES, PLEASE CLARIFY TYPE OF EGGS (chicken, quail, duck, etc).

    3. Vegetables, flowers or both? (something to plant? Cut flowers or canned goodies, jams, pickles?)

    4. Plant starts, seeds, bulbs or any or none?

    5. Your favorite colors are?

    6. Are you a beach lover or land lover?

    7. What does Spring and Summer mean to you?


    Ok...If I have missed something, please let me know.

    Also feel free to post on the thread with ideas and suggestions that come to your mind to help out those that want to swap but may have a hard time "getting going" with ideas. [​IMG]
