Cozy Swap!

Good morning, friends! After some interest over on Instagram, Carrie and I decided to bring back the shoebox swap for the coming holiday season!

After a 5-year hiatus, it's time for another swap! We are pleased to announce that our next Sister's Shoebox Swap has a theme of Cozy!

For those who are unfamiliar with our swaps, my sister and I started these several years ago as a unique way to make a new friend and encourage them. Based on the information you send us, we match you with someone we think you will pair well with, and then we ask each of you to fill a shoebox with goodies tailored to the theme and your swap partner. It's a lot of fun!

Please read the following details carefully if you are interested in swapping:

1. Before you send us an e-mail, please consider if you have the time and resources to fulfill your swap. We don't want anyone to be disappointed!

2. You need to fill out your questionnaire as part of the sign-up. In order to sign up for this swap, please e-mail parisummer {at} hotmail {dot} com with the following info:

complete mailing address
e-mail address
blog or Instagram site, if you have one

If you would be willing to ship internationally, please indicate that specifically. If you don't mention it, we'll assume it's your preference to ship within the U.S.

Also, please answer the following questions in your sign-up e-mail. The more thorough your answers, the better we can match you with someone complementary. This theme is aimed at Christmas/winter!

What do you think of when you think of "cozy?"
What are your favorite things about the holiday season?
What are you favorite holiday colors?
What are you favorite holiday scents?

These next questions are to indicate your preferences -- feel free to elaborate on your choices:
Hot weather or cold
Tea or coffee
Cake or pie
Buy it or make it
Book or movie

Sign-up entries must be complete to be included. Even if you've swapped with us before, please send all of the information requested above. Please keep the them in mind when selecting items for your partner, and as usual, please limit your gifts to what can fit in a shoebox.

Important dates to consider:

Sign-ups due by 8 a.m. {CST} Thursday, November 8, or when 24 people have signed up. Partner info will be e-mailed to you by Monday, November, 12. Please send your shoebox by Friday, November 30.

Thanks, and happy swapping!

** UPDATE ** We have reached our maximum number of swappers and this is now closed. Thanks!

Is there a set limit on how much money you spend?
