celebrate spring SwAp!

introducing the seasonal celebrations swap!

what is the seasonal celebrations swap? the seasonal celebrations swap is an exchange that incorporates handmade crafts, nature, and family traditions. participating in this swap is a great way to celebrate the beginning of a new season as well as adopting new traditions and ideas into your family. the swap will focus on handmade, seasonal nature table and home decorations.

how do i join? simply send an e-mail to InspiredMama(at)msn.com with celebrate spring swap in the subject line and the following information::
name::
address::
blog address::

to your partner you will send::
1. a handmade seasonal decoration. this can made from fabric, yarn, wood, pinecones, acorn caps... the sky (and your seasonal backyard) is the limit. the decoration can be something to include in a nature table display, a table cover in spring colors, a vase to hold seasonal flowers or branches...

2. your family's tradition to welcome spring- this can be as simple as a spring poem or a springtime craft. or maybe it is a cultural tradition that you would like to share. you could also include photos of your tradition in action or the supplies needed to create your springtime craft.

3. your favorite seasonal recipe.

sign up until sunday march 1st, and then i will send an e-mail with your recipient's name the following evening. swap packages should be ready and shipped by saturday march 20th, the first day of spring! that will give us nearly 3 weeks to work on this project.

please feel free to go above and beyond when creating your swap partner's package, but do not skimp- we want everyone to be thrilled when they receive their seasonal celebrations swap package! there is also a new seasonal celebrations swap flickr group where we can discuss the swap and share photos, so be sure to go join! the fabulous thing about this swap is that there will be a brand new one with each new season!

Today I scented spring in the air. I opened all doors and windows to get that breeze in our little home on the hill. It gave us such energy! So I think this is a great swap...I'm in!
