Details of swap:
The 3 months of mail love swap closed very early, so I had the idea of starting up a similar and parallel swap. This is for those of you who couldn't join the first, those animal lovers out there- I know you exist- and even people in the first swap who want to add to their experience.
Each month you send two small things to your partner, one must be handmade and one can be handmade or store bought. Ideas are magnets, stationary, bookmarks, stuffies, stickers etc... You should also include a note to your partner in each month- this will sort of be like a penpal swap for animal lovers. Items will be on the small side to keep down shipping, but definitely put a bit of work into them and some thought as to what your partner might like. The notes/ letters will help you get to know your partner over the months.
There are three month themes. Each partner will include in their profile which animals are their favorites in each theme.
Month 1: Forest friends: deer, owls, hedgehogs all those cute little 'wild' guys
Month 2: Pets: kitties, doggies, hamsters. (can be pet themed or pet toys)
Month 3: Birdies
