Easter Swap - Sign up closed

Ok then, plenty of you seem interested in an Easter Swap, even though I am as late as ever at organising it, so here goes:

The Bunny-hop-Bunny-swap


This time the swap parcel will contain
  1. A handmade bunny softie of any design - (crocheted, knitted or sewn)
  2. A handmade Easter card
(I'm not suggesting chocolates this time to avoid any potential problems with customs and because there will be quite enough chocolate around at Easter already! I am also leaving out the "stash goodies" to make it simpler.)

The rules of this swap are
  1. The sign up list will close at 8pm (UK time) on Monday 18th February (or earlier if I reach 50 participants) - by which time I will also need everyone's contact email address
  2. I will send out questionnaires to anyone who has not taken part in the Valentine's swap and will need to have them back by Wednesday 20th Feb at 8pm (UK time)
  3. Partners will then be allocated (I will choose them by picking names from a bowl but will re-draw them if there are any duplicate pairs from the previous swap - so everyone gets the chance to make a new friend)
  4. Once you receive your partner's details you should send them an email to say hello and introduce yourself
  5. Parcels must be sent on or before 23rd March
  6. You should send an email to both me and your partner to confirm that you have sent your parcel
  7. If you have any problems with posting it please let your partner know as soon as possible and send me an email too.
  8. Once you have received your goodies could you please blog about them (if possible) to publicly thank your partner and then send me a photo of what you have received so I can do a concluding blog post.
  9. Most importantly - have fun!
I'm sorry that this is a short-notice swap again - but my good ideas only come to me at the last moment and I had sworn that I wouldn't be organising another swap for a long time (as many of you have reminded me!)

I look forward to hearing from you all!

Lucy x

P.S. I will send you the code for the swap-badge when you sign up in case you want to include it on your blog

Gosh Lucy -- this swap is just tailor made for a bunny pincushion!!! But, sadly I PROMISED myself, while sewing the Valentine swap that I wouldn't do anymore swaps again until at least after the spring. If you can't keep a promise to yourself, well what then??? Looking forward to seeing all the swappy Easter love!

Sounds like so much fun Lucy. I made a promise to myself though to first finish all swaps and PIFS I joined last year. I look forward to see all the bunny fun! Good luck with organizing, you are the best!

tintocktap said...

Well done for organising another swap! Would love to join, but don't think I'll have the bunny making time between now and Easter and Easter is just too close to when the baby is due. So I'll just have to be happy with drooling over everyone else's bunnies!

SewToBed said...

I've got here via Katy Ginger Monkey - and although not a softie (or card) maker I'm willing to give it a go if you'll have me!!

katelnorth said...

I'm going to skip this one - not a very good softie maker, I'm afraid. And I really need more committments on my time, anyway - NOT! But maybe the next one :)

Annie said...

Hi Lucy, Ok I'll join in too - not sure how I'll go with softies but will give it a try.

Well I wasn't going to, but I am sure I will find some sort of bunny to make by the 23rd March so count me in.

joy michelle said...

I cannot decide if I’m brave enough to take this on, I've never made a card, and what if my bunny's not good enough...
So I shall leave it up to fate. If the number comes up uneven, and you need an extra person, I would be happy to participate. If not, I shall wait until next time.

My email is joymichelle87@yahoo.com
