Winter is upon us and, for many, that means cold temperatures, gray skies and dark days. If you're craving the warm sunshine and bright days of summer and wanting to brighten another members day with a sunshine bomb, this swap is for you!

In the Box of Sunshine swap, we'll be sending our partners a sunshine inspired package filled with bright and cheery crafted goodness!

Swap Details
1. One medium crafted item that is bright and sunny
2. One small crafted item that is bright and sunny
3. Bright and happy package fillers (OPTIONAL)
4. Posting to the discussion thread or PMing organizers is required once a week!
5. Have fun!!

Crafted Items Info:
When you and your partner open your packages, you should feel warm - not hot chocolate and flannel blanket warm but barefoot toes in hot white sands kind of warm !! Crafted items should be done in sunshiney colors (yellows, oranges, warm beiges...). Items should be aligned with your partners wishes. Here are some ideas!

- Picnic tray decorated with yellow and orange designs
- Pillow cover quilted with yellow fabrics
- Journal cover with an embroidered sunshine
- Stenciled beach towel with a summer inspired saying
- Painting or wall hanging of a sunset
- Yellow fizzy bath bombs and soap set

If you want to fill your sunshine package with yellow candies or yellow craft supplies or other extras, you can indicate so in questionnaire and be partnered with someone else that wants the same. If you'd prefer to just stick with crafted items, you can select that option too.

Oooo yay!!! Off to fill out this questionnaire!

Sent in my answers! We have sunshine today, but it's only 5 degrees F outside so it's not very helpful.

"I have no plans to die today."
 I would however, like to learn to knit.

I just got back from Michaels where I may or may not have picked up a few sunshiney "fillers." Guess I should go ahead and fill out the swap form, huh? Grin
