I shared with you the sweet gift I received in the mail from Bethany, and last week I was surprised by another gift in the mail from the incredible and talented Kristine, who managed to send me the very thing I needed most to brighten my day. The thoughtfulness of these ladies blew me away and made me want to give back, in fact I wanted everyone else to experience the happiness that comes from receiving a package full of love in the mail. So, I've decided it is time to spread the joy through a Spring Swap!
What should go in your package? Things that would bring someone joy: a much love book, a mixed cd, something you lovingly handcrafted, a beautiful shell you picked up on the beach, your favorite chocolate, prints of your best photos, the list of possibilities is endless. Just remember, it doesn't have to be expensive, with a bit of creativity you can make someone's day.
A few years ago I participated in a swap and was matched up with the amazing Maegan of Madeline Bea and Creativity Bootcamp fame. Thanks to Maegan I started exploring photography and began connecting with other bloggers. I don't think it is an exaggeration to say being matched up with Maegan changed my life in a very positive way. I hope everyone who participates takes the time to follow the blog of their partner, gets to know them a bit and at the very least makes a new friend.
To participate email me at: auroraforever (at) gmail (dot) com. Send me your name, blog address and mailing address, and let me know if you are willing to ship out of your home country. I'll accept participation requests until end of day Monday, March 21. In a week or less I will have emails back out to everyone with the information on their partners. You'll have 1 week to 10 days to put together your package of joy and get it in the mail and then you'll be able to start watching the mail for your package full of joy.
One last request - help me spread the word. The more participants we get, the more fun it will be and the more joy we'll generate. You can spread the word on your blog, send an email to your friends or post about it on Facebook or Twitter. Feel free to copy and use the photo above in your efforts to spread the word. Doesn't that red door make you happy - kind of the way you can't help but smile when you hear this song.
I'm trying to create a button to help spread the word but can't figure out the html code, so if anyone out there has any tips, please send them my way. Pin It
