how cute is THIS? Just an idea...
Happily, I got a GREAT response for the Winter
Gastronomy Swap, despite it's ridonkulous name. Yay!
::I do have one swapper who is all on her lonesomeNow let's keep the good vibes going and go over The Rules one more time, swappers.
because I don't have an even number. SO, first one to comment and say they'll
swap gets in on the fun!!:: WE HAVE ANOTHER SWAPPER SO EVERYONE WHO ORIGINALLY SIGNED UP IS IN (as of Tuesday).
1) Email your swapee and get the 411 on them (mailing address? food allergies? bad childhood experience with plaid....whatever. You get the idea).
2) SHOP/CREATE! Remember: we all know it's better to give than to receive, blahblahblah, but make sure you give like YOU would like to receive. In other words, don't skimp out. $25 should be spent.
3) Remember that since this a food swap, all items should be FOOD or FOOD-RELATED. It's totally cool to have stuff for pooches included but remember that you are sending something to the humans too. Otherwise this would be a Pet Food Swap and I'd have to come up with another stupid name.
4) Package it up cute and SEND IT OUT by no later than Monday, January 11. I can feel the utter lack of douchiness from all of your comments so I KNOW no one's going to wuss out and drop the ball here. Because you VOLUNTEERED to do this. Because it is FUN.
Because Laura and I will praise you to high heavens if you do the right thing and talk shit about you if you don't.
If you need some ideas of what a nice swap looks like and aren't familiar with Laura's blog, click on THIS.
THIS is cute too! And you get to keep it for yourself
instead of giving it for *RamaHanuKwanzMas!
SO, here are the partners **(and I'll be emailing you with each other's e-ddresses):
So have fun! And don't forget one more thing--when you do get your package, please take pictures. It's fun to see what everyone got and I would be more than happy to post them here!
**EDITED TO ADD: I'll be getting out your emails by Wednesday. Sick in bed today. YUCK.
