Details of swap:
does valentines day make you sad? do you need someone to send you a care package? do bows and lace and pink make you gag? maybe you'd prefer a hip valentine package full of re-interpreted valentine goodies! do you love valentine's, but all your single friends get tired of hearing about it? you need a swap partner who loves it as much as you do! do you think valentine's is just a day designed to make you spend money and ruin your new year's weight loss resolutions? you need a partner who agrees, or one who can show you the wonder of a hand made valentine's day!
this swap is a valentine swap for everyone!
do you hate valentine's day? love valentine's day? i'll do my very best to match everyone up according to their love/hate feelings! (and your style!)
you'll be making:
- a valentine's card for your partner
- 1 LARGE, 1 MEDIUM and 1 SMALL item for your package,
1 MEDIUM and 2 SMALL items for your package.
feel free to send a few little xtras, like valentines candy, etc, but doublecheck with your partner first, no one likes it to feel guilty about receiving too much!
this is up to you and your partner! after partners are assigned, you'll need to decide between yourselves and let me know.
the questionnaire is pretty detailed, but please communicate with your partner. communication is EXTEMELY important, i'll be doing a random check in at some point, and if i don't hear back from you, your partner will hold off on sending until i do! any communication problems WILL be reflected in your feedback.
please comment on this thread or bookmark it, i'll be posting important updates and check ins here!
please DO NOT sign up if you don't have the time, energy or cash to make the best package possible for your partner, and to send on time! it's valentine's day, we don't want to make anyone sad!
