IT'S TIME TO GET SWAPPIN'

Ok Girls get your swapping boots on!
Im taking the leap and hosting my 2nd swap.
DRUMROLL PLEASE...
ITS CALLED THE.....

Who's excited???
I know i am !
The idea is to send your partner 2 PARASOL items. Handmade or store bought, it doesnt matter.They can be anything your creative mind thinks of or sees. Maybe you are lucky enough to find a real parasol, or perhaps some linen with parasols on them....maybe you could make some sweet parasol tags, create a painting of a parasol...the possibilities are endless.
Now for the PAPER part. What girl doesnt love pretty paper? You are to send 3 items of gorgeous paper..it could be wrapping paper, wallpaper, vintage paper...go crazy. We all love and use pretty paper!

Sounds sweet and simple doesnt it? Thats because it is !

All you have to do is leave a comment on THIS POST and also email me @ paintminepink@people.net.au
with your full name and address and a link to your blog.


Lets keep the costs down by not spending more than say $20.00, this makes it fair to everyone who participates.

Remember to package up your swap all pretty for your partner! We all love receiving beautiful parcels.

This swap is open to EVERYONE and sign ups will be taken until
May 9th. I will send you your swap partners details by May 11th and you will need to send your swap by June 3rd.

* If you prefer not to post/ship overseas please let me know in your email, as i am certainly sympathetic to postage/shipping costs *


So have loads of fun and remember to sign up!

Lotsa Pink Kisses,
Shann xo

FEEL FREE TO RIGHT CLICK ON THE BANNER AND SAVE IT TO YOUR BLOG.
OH AND BE SURE TO SPREAD THE WORD. LETS MAKE THIS FULL OF FUN!

BeachysCapeCodCupboard said...

Hi Shannon! Thank you for joining my swap! I'll get the details out soon via email. I am sooo sorry but I won't be able to join in on your parasol swap this time around... two swaps at the same time is very hard for me right now... I'm involved in tons of end-of-the-school year activities, and I'm really stretching myself thin at the moment. I hope you understand!!!

Linda said...

Hi Shann,
Count me in, this will be my first swap a bit scary, but I hope I will manage. Have a great weekend.
Cheers Linda

Did you get my message that I received my package....over the top fantastic. Your cuppies rock. (The chocolate was pretty tasty too!)

BeachysCapeCodCupboard said...

Sweet sweet Shannon... I just popped on over to say "hi" and I read all your comments of people joining in... I truly feel guilty I can't take anymore on at the moment (I just received two more notices from school today for activities I need to attend in the next two weeks... it just doesn't stop with three young ones in school). But I PROMISE PROMISE PROMISE to sign up for your next swap! hugs!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Shann, This should be a wonderful swap for everyone but I can't participate this time. I just wanted to say hi and let you know my friend and I had a fabulous day hunting for Spring flowers, herbs and veggies, general shopping and lunch. It was a great day and sure to be a post soon. ~ Lynn

Carol Anne's Boutique said...

Hi Shann,
Thank you so very much for letting me know about your swap, it sounds like so much fun! I am sorry to say though, that I won’t be able to participate as my Mom is having some serious health problems right now. Please let me know when you have another swap as I would love to join in.
Take care Sweetie~
Hugs,
Carol Anne
