It would be super fun!


Just think about it; smiley face tote bags and buttons, perhaps a decorated box filled with things that make your partner happy, or stuff to help them relax or destress, maybe a stress toy for releasing pent up emotions, some nice tea bags or relaxing bath stuff or a cute soft toy for cudding when they're feeling low (you could perhaps throw in some cheery tissues for times when they need to just let it all out). How about a little 'Be Happy' kit with suggestions or sayings to help banish the blues?

The idea would just be to put together an awesome package that'll brighten your partner's day and get them smiling.  Grin *big cheesy grin*

I'm sure you guys could come up with allsorts of even better ideas but the general aim would be to craft and send items that would encourage cheeriness, destressing, relaxation or comfort. Ooh, maybe we could do it so that you had to include an item from each of those four catergories? something cheery like a smiley tote bag, destressing like a stress toy, relaxing like home made bath treats and comforting like a cuddly toy?

Or is that getting too fiddly?


Anyways, the point is, a happy themed swap would be awesome for everyone involved.


But of course I'm still doing my very first swap (being somewhat a swap newbie, so we'd need to find a willing organiser of course  Tongue)

Have a lovely day! Let me know what yo uthink, would you take part in this swap?
(you know you want to!)

That sounds like a great idea, hope you find a co/organiser. I would but only just found this place and haven't done a swap yet!

I think this is a cute idea!  I'm one of those "glass is half empty" kind of gals, and my husband is one of those "glass is half full and just about to be filled up again" type of guys.  He's always saying that I need to be more positive and have more positive things around me.  I could definetely benefit from a swap like this  Grin

lol! I can definately relate! Which is partly why I thought it'd be a good and helpful idea for even the most miserable of us!  Wink

cute idea!
I like the part about the 4 categories, and if the sizes were not
too big, it would be do-able for me (maybe 2 med & 2 smalls?)
Will be watching this one....

Definitely an intriguing idea.
I tend to be a very overly happy person.
Therefore I could always use happy objects to help spread my joy. LOL Wink

yay! Well I'm so glad that there's a good amount of interest in this swap but I myself wouldn't be able to organise it.

So I guess what I'm looking for aswell is some lovely person who's willing to be organiser of this swap.

Anyone?  Grin
