Now when was the last time I did a swap....I used to swap conkers,stamps and comics at school but that was trizilions of years ago.....and for a few seconds here I am having to think how do I do this...how do you do a cyberswap? This is a totally different type of swap something I have never done before...well never mind though...its different...it's interesting and I have this bubbly feeling ,a get up and go feeling of excitement which I'd say is motivation..... !
I have been hovering over Katie's blog http://booty-fullthings.blogspot.com.es/the last few days wondering who I would get as my swap partner and NOW I KNOW I've been teamed with Sandi http://sandiart.wordpress.com/ who lives over the pond in Oz...brilliant.....
I am so looking forward to getting to know my new blog swap partner and to start filling my jar for her.
Our host on this first Jar of Love Swap is Katie at http://booty-fullthings.blogspot.com.es/
and these are the rules and regulations that we should abide by:
THE JAR the size, shape, colour, material as we like. There must also be a minimum of 5 items inside the jar and one has to be handmade.
THE GOODIES to be sent to your swap partner must fit and be inside your chosen jar and should be items we think our partner will like this means of course that one has to undergo a bit of a research of the other blogger (or have a nosey as Katie describes it ...he! he! ) . So better grease my dormant strategy skills folks to find out what makes my blog swap partner trill !!! :-)
THE SENDINGParcels must be posted by 1st August
Just one more thing ....my thanks to Katie who came up with this brilliant idea! Thank you.
and so the prep begins .....
I went into two Eurostetcher shops today to look for a jar. There were plenty of glass jars but I don't think its a very good idea sending a glass jar by post and weight has to be considered as well. I did find some plastic jars but....I hesitated because they looked very "nothing" sort of jars so I am going to look some more and also look in the house to see what I've got. I want something different! I might find something at the Sunday craft market too.
|This IS NOT the JAR !!!! If I find one of these its for me...sorry Sandi :-)|
I have been tweaking my blog design a little bit....I'm a bit of a tidy freak ,my blog included. Now I have 60 reciprocal followers I find it difficult to remember who is who among the icons on my long list of blogs on the sidebar and I do like to keep up with your posts and send in comments regularly if I can. Therefore to make this easier for me and also to save time I have two Blog lists now. I have separated the Blogs of reciprocal followers(the RFs) from the Blogs which are read only (ROs). The reciprocal followers blog list speaks for itself but the read only one includes the blogs where a reciprocal follower relationship has not been established as yet or they are blogs I just read and drool over. I have placed this list on the right sidebar of my blog.
Please do tell me if I have placed you in the wrong list. I feel better now that's tidier :-)
Hello to my new followers Katie at Grannytaughtmetocrochet and Sangeetha at Crochetkari a very warm welcome and thanks for your comments and for following my blog .
