It's Summertime, Summertime...



...Sum, Sum, Summertime!
Well, shut them books and throw 'em away
And say goodbye to dull school days
Look alive and change your ways
It's summertime...
(lyrics found here)


The overwhelming majority of you expressed an interest in a swap with a summertime theme! Of course this is perfect because summer is right around the corner...what better way to welcome the sunshine than with a surprise package of perfect for summer treats and goodies?!

So here's the deal - sign up ONLY if you are serious about providing your partner with a fun summertime swap package within the time restraints listed below! I really don't want anyone spending their time and money preparing a great package for someone who doesn't return the favor. If you sign up and have to back out for any reason, just let me know and I'll figure out a solution!
  1. Comment on this post by next Monday, the 18th. Please leave an e-mail address in your comment.
  2. I will post the match ups sometime on Tuesday, the 19th. It is your responsibility to contact your swap partner to get their address and any other information you may need or want.
  3. The spending limit is going to be $25 without shipping. To participate, you have to be willing to put together a package of at least three summer related items, such as a beach towel, favorite summer reading material, sunscreen, make-up products, flip flops, beach tote, etc. etc.



  4. Packages must be sent by June 15th, and should arrive just in time to welcome the first official day of summer (which is June 21st in case you were wondering)!
Okay ladies - start signing up!
