The Great Gift Exchange

June 7, 2007 by  
Filed under giveaways

Sign-ups are now closed.Thank you to all participants. You should have received an email indicating your swap partners. If not, please contact me.
Well, I’m not sure how “great” it will be but The Great Gift Exchange sounded better than The Gift Exchange. Don’t you think?Anyway, since posting about my wonderful “good mail” from Jennifer, I’ve received a lot of comments and emails from bloggers who thought it was such a great idea to receive something special in the mail. So, I’ve decided to organize my own little gift exchange.Here’s how it works:

  1. If you’re interested in joining us, sign-up on the Mr. Linky below before June 7th.
  2. Once you sign-up, I will be emailing you to confirm your participation. We had a few problems with the Valentine’s Day Goody Swap where people were submitting their links by accident. UPDATE: I’ve decided to comfirm only with those who did not leave a comment specifying their participation.
  3. On June 8th, I’ll be announcing your swap partners.
  4. It will be your responsibility to make contact with each other and exchange mailing addresses.
  5. You should use this time to get to know each other better and possibly make a new blogging friend!
  6. Gifts should be about $10 + shipping charges.
  7. Don’t forget to post your gifts. I, for one, would love to see what everyone got!

Any questions? Please feel free to contact me.

    This just sounds as cool as it could possibly get! I’d love to get something besides bills in the mail, and I enjoy getting gifts for folks, too! Thanks for doing this!

    I would love to participate! I really appreciated your post about good mail. It does make a world of difference to get mail that means something!

    I would love to participate, but am not sure if anyone wants the added expense of international shipping charges. But I would love to send something to someone else!
    What a great idea.

    I came by your blog by chance. I just love the layout – its soo cheerful & different from the rest.

    I’ve read a few posts & you’ll be a regular read for sure.

    I think your gift exchange is kwel.. its like “penpals” from days gone by

    It finally accepted me! Jenn, you KNOW I’d love to have you send something from Holland, and you know I’d love to send you some AZ sunshine, but I’m not sure what the cost would be for either of us…

    Is it too late to participate?

    I like to participate but can I get someone from New York?

    I have never ship anything outside of New York before and I am not sure how that is done.

    I suppose someone can advice me.

    Lulu says:

    I can’t wait!

    Please note that I am going on a cruise from June 9-15, so I won’t be able to ship the gift until I return. BUT, this gives me something fun to shop for while relaxing on a couple of Caribbean islands!

    Just surfing the web and thought this would be fun to do. I am just starting up my blog.

  34. 34

    This is an awesome site-wish I had found it before. I hope I am not too late. I am always looking for new friends. If you wouldn’t mind emailing me, whoever becomes my friend-that would be great-I am in the process of moving into a new house and may get lost in all the excitement. Thanks for the great oppurtunity.

    Carey says:

    I haven’t received my exchange partner. Can you let me know when you get a chance.

  37. 37

    I never got an email about the final picks! I did hear from whom I was paired with, just not any other info. Just want to be sure I am playing along correctly!
