It has been a LONG time since I have held a swap. In fact, I'm not sure I've even done one since the blog became Amanda's Musings! So, I am super excited to announce the Amanda's Musings Handmade Christmas Card Swap!
I love stationery, and Christmas cards are no exception. I have hosted this kind of swap before and it is amazing to see all the beautiful handmade Christmas Cards out there! It's a great way to support a handmade business, or you can get your craft on and make them yourself! A card swap is also great for those who want to spread Christmas cheer, but can't stretch to buying a gift.
This is a Handmade Christmas Card swap. Each person will send 3 Handmade Christmas Cards. The card you send MUST be handmade either by yourself or you have bought it from someone who handmade it. A handwritten festive greeting inside would be a great way to send some Christmas cheer. In other words, don't leave the inside blank!
Head to Swap-Bot and use the code: AMCardSwap to gain access to the swap page. Read through all the info and then fill in the form to join the swap. If you are not already a member of Swap Bot you will need to join up - it's free. The last day to sign up is November 30, 2012.
Partners will be assigned randomly through Swap Bot and an announcement will be made on Amanda's Musings blog when they have been allocated. PLEASE NOTE: You will receive from different people to who you send to.
All cards must be sent by Dec 7, 2012. If you are buying your cards, you may need to purchase them before the partners are announced to allow time for them to be delivered to you before you need to send them off. If for some reason you are unable to make the deadline, please be courteous and let Amanda know at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will let your partners know.
SHARING THE LOVE:
Once you have received your cards you can share photos of them on Instagram and Twitter using the hash tag #AMCardSwap. You can also share them on your blog, if you have one, and link it up with the linky code Amanda will provide in a future blog post on Amanda's Musings
For the rest of the info head to the swap bot page.
I hope you join in! It's going to be SO much fun!
