Hi Everyone! As promised, I want to do a fun swap with those of you that want to participate... and PLEASE pass the word on so that we can get as many participants as possible. My goal would be to pair people up based on location - it would be fun to get recipes from someone in a completely different part of the country and see how different it is from what you're used to.
So what I'm thinking is that we'll start with recipes - focusing on Fall and the holidays...
You'll send your partner:
1 (or more) recipe for a breakfast item
1 (or more) recipe for a main dish
1 (or more) recipe for a snack or appetizer
1 (or more) recipe for a side dish
1 (or more) recipe for a dessert
1 (or more) recipe for a beverage
1 (or more) recipe with your favorite item on your holiday table
Now, get creative - don't just type up the recipe... get crafty ladies. You can totally do something digital - if you're not a scrapbook person... but make it something fun and special. Add stickers, or whatever you want to jazz up what you're going to send. You could even include a story about why you love the recipe.
Then I thought it would be fun to take it a little further... and send a little something special. I'll leave that up to you - please don't spend more than $20 at the very most. I was thinking you could send a scarf, some hot tea, cocoa, Starbucks card... something that brings a warm smile to your face and a virtual hug to the person that will receive it.
I hope that this will bless each of you as we start the Thanksgiving holidays and round into Christmas.
To join in on the fun, please leave a comment with your Name, a Link to your Blog, the State you live in, and your email address. Sign up for the swap by October 23rd. You don't have to have a blog to be part of this - it just helps people get to know each other a little bit.
We'll put our things in the mail by October 29th, and do a post about it by November 4th.
