Hello! How is your week going, so far? I wanted to host an Easter basket swap this year like I have done a few years in the past, but with being sick so much I was unable to get to it. A couple of years ago I participated in a petite May basket swap and it was lots of fun, so I decided to host one this year! I know it's a bit short notice, but I think we can do it.
I gathered some inspiration from flickr, where the May basket group was hosted and here are a few of my favorites.
Lots of gorgeous inspiration there, right?
This will be a one on one swap, unless you would just like to have more than one partner and if that is the case, let me know. To participate, you will need to create, alter, OR embellish a petite basket and fill it with the kind of art goods your partner would love. I want each basket to be special, with attention paid to the smallest of details. (Like packaging things sweetly, etc.) NO JUNK. I don't want anyone to fill their sweet little baskets with things they just don't want anymore, but rather treasures that their partner will love.
All baskets will need to be in the recipients hands by May Day. (May 1st)
If you'd like to join, and can can meet the expectations, then please shoot me an email telling me your name, address, where you can be found on the web, and your likes or style. Send the email to cerri at thelittlepinkstudio dot com. Also, please be sure to let me know if you are willing to ship internationally since our time is short. I will take sign ups only until Sunday evening so then I can quickly assign partners. I want you to have plenty of time to get your baskets ready.
I do hope you will play along, I just love a good swap, don't you?! Please feel free to add the button at the top to your blog and I'd love for you to share if you would like!
PS, I almost forgot to mention: If you have a 12-13 year old gal that would like to play along, please let me know. My niece loves to do swaps with me, and I know she would love to play along for this one as well.
