*~May Basket swap announcement!!!~*


I am excited to announce that it is time for the annual May Basket Swap! This has always been one of my favorite swaps of the year.

Here are the details: The baskets can be anything you want: store bought or handmade. Althought I think at least part of it should be handmade. The baskets shown in this post are those that I have made for several of my partners over the years. Fill your basket with spring goodies of any sort, vintage inspired it always nice. Since you can't send real flowers think silk flowers, velvet leaves, millinery flowers, birds, butterflies....whatever makes you smile:) When you get your swap partner you may want to email them and see what kind of color combinations and/or style that they would like. This swap can be interpreted in a number of ways. Some people like to have an additional theme, like supplies, handmade, vintage or a color combination that they love. Be sure and discuss these things with your partner.
If you know that you can meet the
mail out deadline of April 15th
and you are ready to commit to this swap, you are required to fill out all of the questions on
You will not be registered until they are completed and you receive a confirmation email from me. I am limiting this swap to the
first 50 players.
For tons more inspiration see this post and our may basket flickr group from the first swap.

It cannot have effect in reality, that is what I consider.
