Bloomin' Sister's Shoebox Swap

UPDATE: The swap filled up in less than 8 hours--wahoo! Let the fun begin!

Happy First Day of Spring (in our part of the world)! We promised we had a treat in store for you today and we are happy to announce our next Sister's Shoebox Swap!

We traditionally choose one word to get your creative juices flowing and for Spring, our theme is Bloom! Everything in the swap does not need to be flowery, but we hope this word will provide a starting place (a seed!) for garden, planting, flowers and all things Spring. Sign up starts today and will be open to the first 50 friends we receive e-mail messages from.

Please send an e-mail with your name, address, e-mail and blog address (if you have one) to with "Bloom Swap" in the subject line. Please note that leaving a comment on this post does not sign you up for the swap.

Once you've signed up, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a short questionnaire. These brief questions are simply a way for your partner to get to know you and your tastes to create a swap box you will enjoy! You do not have to have a blog to participate.

International swapping will be coordinated if anyone is willing to ship internationally. We will assume you prefer not to ship internationally unless you specify that you are willing to do so. After we receive all the questionnaires back, we will coordinate partners and send out e-mails to you and your partner will all the info.

If you sign up, please make sure you can follow through on your commitment. We've had several participants who have not followed through and we want to make sure everyone has a fun experience!

Swap partners will be assigned by Monday, March 31, 2008 and the swap deadline will be April 18, 2008. Happy swapping! Let the fun begin!

Is there any other way I can contact you? I tried to send an e-mail and I get some message about 'setting up your server,' which is beyond my computer-nerd understanding. My own e-mail is Lufmikidz at aol dot com. I know there must be some way to e-mail you because I did one of these swaps when you first started!
