Thanks For Giving Swap sign-ups

Time for another swap here at Ravenwood Whimzies!

This swap is called
the

Thanks for Giving Swap

The idea for the swap was inspired by not only the coming holiday of Thanksgiving, but also because of YOU!  Yes, all you wonderful blogging ladies give so freely and take such pleasure in giving, that I thought it would be extra special to include something very personal in this swap.

Now the requirements are as follows:

This swap will consist of 4 items

(1)
*One of the items should be handmade and have your swap partner's name and your name on it somewhere....be it a stitchery about friends, pillow or simply a permanent reminder on something else you create...such as
From_________
To___________
Date____________

I don't know about you, but sometimes this feeble ole mind has a hard time recalling who sent me what, and I think, just this once, it would be nice to give your swap partner a constant reminder of your blogging friendship...a kind of 
Thanks for Giving.

(2 & 3)
*Two of the items should have something to do with Thanksgiving.
Here's a few ideas:
turkey
cornacopia
pilgrims
Indians
thanksgiving banners
Indian corn

You can create
pillows
stitcheries
dolls
make-dos
pinkeeps
penny rugs or mats
wooden signs
paper mache boxes
to name just a few ideas

Be creative!

and the LAST ITEM:

(4)
well...we all know that in the world of commerce, Thanksgiving means the big push for CHRISTMAS...so let's make the final item a small Christmas item, such as an ornie, etc.

You are certainly free to include more goodies in your box, but please be sure to include the above mentioned items.

Your swap package should be something that you would like to receive, so make it a box that says
THANKS FOR GIVING!

Since this swap is to celebrate the friendships we have already made, I would like to limit it to only those who have been visiting and commenting on my blog for a while now. 

If you wish to join the swap, please comment here and then
SEND ME YOUR INFORMATION via email to
 rwprimcrafts@aol.com
(please don't make me chase you down to get your information - thank you)

*I'll need your name and address
*a list of things you are collecting, wanting or just plain love!
*the name of the last few people you have swapped with so I can match you up with someone new

Sign-ups last until September 30th
You will receive your partners name by October 1st
Mail date for your packages is November 8th

All packages should be mailed out with a delivery confirmation, which I ask that you share with your partner once you mail your package.

I hope you will join in this thoughtful swap and send one of your blogging friend's a package full of 
THANKS
for 
Giving!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
