MAY DAY SWAP EVENT!
I am sponsoring a MAY DAY SWAP EVENT. May day has always had special significance for me as the real first sign that Spring is here to stay. All through my childhood I have fond memories of collecting wildflowers for one of my neighbors every May Day, making them into a boquet and taking them to her house. Her face would light up like an angel each year and she'd invite us in for cookies. Jesse, I know you are up in HEAVEN smiling now as I dedicate this swap event in your memory.
The theme of the swap is FLOWERS! This event is open world-wide so be sure to let me know if you will ship internationally so I pair partners up accordingly!You may create any form of art as long as you incorporate flowers into it. When you receive your swap partner's email and address please send her/him an email of getting to know you information. For example: favorite flower, color, and a brief biological history of who you are and your blog address. PLEASE CC your EMAIL to me so I KNOW you have connected with your partner. If for any reason you become unable to do the swap, let me know so I can arrange to have a new partner for your partner. I will be creating a FLICKR GROUP to post your pictures. You may join the swap beginning today and registration closes on April 11th, 2010. Please email me your contact data, email address, blog address and name, your mailing address and phone number by April 11th. Packages should be mailed no later than April 30th, to be in time for MAY DAY! Please get a tracking number for your package as we all have had things lost in the mail. This should be fun and stress free and inexpensive! I suggest limiting your expenses to under $20.00 and a flat rate mailing package always helps keep shipping costs down for larger packages. You may create a link to my MAY DAY swap and grab the FTD tulip picture as button/url...http://poemsmyway-valrie.blogspot.com/2010/04/may-day-swap-event.html and post it to your blog! PLEASE!!! It's such fun and you will make many new friends, just imagine the bouquet of friends just waiting to be gathered! How many is up to you!
