I absolutely love the beach (especially Hawaii) and probably can't afford to go anywhere this summer.... what a bummer!  But a bag/tote full of fun vacation-y summer stuff sure would help me dream happy, tropical thoughts!

I was thinking we could craft a bag, like a tote, beach or pool bag, and then fill it with both crafted and store-bought vacation staples or items that would remind us of our dream vacation.

Dreaming of hiking through the mountains?  You could fill a bag with a journal, a simple embroidered pillow case, some trail mix, magnets, a field guide, an embellished picture frame or album....

What about the beach?  A cozy for your sunglasses, journal, a little novel, some tropical tea towels, sun screen, some fabulous grilling recipes and marinade....

I was thinking about a 5 or 6-point swap (including the bag,)  with a little spoiling encouraged.  I could organize and start sign-ups in the beginning of May.

I think this could be so much fun!  Anyone interested???  Any suggestions/inspirations/ideas?

That sounds so fun! I could really do with a good vacation, but it's not going to happen this summer!

Early May would be fantastic Smiley

I'm loving the idea - but sadly with the timing - I don't think I'd do my partner justice...  Perhaps if you have round two in August? LOL Cheesy
