(thanks to Lime Riot for the original sign up, which I basically c&ped)

Depending on where you live, spring hasn't quite sprung yet. 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
Requirements:
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.

Hi!  You are so funny...you copied and pasted but forgot to change the dates!  I'm happy it's spring, I don't want to go back to January!  Thank you for organizing this swap, I've been looking forward to it.

Hmm, thinking about this one! I'm going to be needing some extra sunshine at the end of April for sure.

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Man, I'd love to do this swap but I'll already be working on one heavy-duty swap and one smaller swap so I probably shouldn't pile even more on. I'll watch the gallery and maybe wait for another "Box of" swap later in the year. Good luck with this!

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

Sorry about the timey-wimeyness. Should be fixed now!

I've always wanted to join one of these.  I usually try not to have more than 3 swaps going on at once so I don't over commit but I'm seriously thinking about signing up.

I started the pinterest board!  I have a question, though.  Does everything we craft for this swap need to be yellow or orange, or can it also be a spring themed item that may not be yellow or orange?
