Do you remember getting surprise bags from the shop when you were a kid? I miss feeling around the bag to see if I can guess the goodies/toys inside like I used to when I was younger. I was thinking that we could make surprise bags for eachother, filling them up with smaller halloween crafts and candy. We could make our own bags (can be out of paper that you decorate, or out of material.) and fill it up with things you think your partner would like. Of course there would be a set size for the bag but i figure it should be one that could fit into a small flat rate box (but that can be discussed). What does everyone think? I would want to start it at the beginning of september so there would be enough time to get it before halloween. Of course there will also be a minimum amount of crafts to send plus a few goodies. How many things do you guys think would be good to send?

cute idea!
maybe 2 or 3 smalls plus some candy goodness?

I was thinking 4-5 smalls but if we do 3 we could have more than one partner since it should be a pretty quick swap. Maybe put everyone into groups of 3 if there is enough interest...

Could it be international? I live in Australia in an area where there is a high rate of US posting houses (embassy staffers mainly - some Military) but Halloween has been getting bigger and bigger each year I would love a parcel for Halloween perhaps as a Halloween beginner style.

Up for a Personal Swap?

of course it'll be international. I dont like excluding swappers just because of where they live, if anyone has a problem sending out of their country they will mention it on the questionaire so they dont have to have international partners, but everyone else can. Besides, I secretly love Aussies lol.

I would definitely be in if we could sign up/get partners by end of Sept! I have a lil one due Oct 13th so I would want to get crafting for this one out of the way as soon as possible!
