THE NEEDFUL THINGS SWAP!
1. Needful things can be frivolous but useful....like those funky little pincushions in my sewing room or the beautiful hank of yarn just waiting to be made into a scarf.
2. Needful things can be quirky...like the zombie dolls I love because they are the perfect combination of cute and creepy.
3. Needful things can be characteristic...like my need to move turtles out of the road so some jerk doesn't squash them.
What we are swapping:
The package needs to be worth/valued at $30.00.
The package needs to have a minimum of 6 "needful things" and ONE of these things has to be handmade. (It doesn't matter how you break down the cost. Buy 1 nice thing and make everything else; make 1 nice thing and buy everything else; spend a few bucks per item; etc. )
Then, you need to wrap each item up individually and include a note to your partner.
This is supposed to be a pretty package, not a "thrown together, helter skelter, cram-it-in-a-box and forget-it" type of package.
Because shipping has gotten outrageously expensive, this is a USA only swap.
The join by date is January 25th. I will email your partner info the following week.
The blog post date is February 1st.
The ship by date is February 22nd. Please use delivery confirmation or priority mail so you can track your packages.
Okay, so if you want to join along, simply email me your name and address at valpowery(at)yahoo(dot)com. I'll reply and then send an email confirming everyone right before the swap. You'll need to reply to any emails I send during the course of the swap.
