The Creative Exchange {or grown up pen pals}

I'm so excited to announce a project that I've had in the works for a couple of months now. Along with the incomparable Kelley from the Grant life and the darling Brooke from Covered in Grace, I'm hosting The Creative Exchange.

What's The Creative Exchange? I'm glad you asked! The Creative Exchange is a chance for you to be paired with someone and make a new friend. By the end of the month, you'll exchange handmade gifts or craft supplies with your new buddy. 

I've participated in a couple of similar exchanges and had a blast. It's fun getting to know someone new and I'm always amazed at the creativity of my partner. I hope you'll join us!

Please read this whole post before signing up! 
  • What to get in on the fun? Email me at coveredinmodpdoge@gmail.com with "The Creative Exchange" in the subject line.
  • All sign ups must be received by 10pm CST on 7/8/12.
  • Open to US residents only {I'm sorry to any international readers who are interested in participating. This is a bit of a daunting project to take on. We're going to be learning as we go. Hopefully next time around we'll be able to expand this little endeavor.} 
  • Packages must be postmarked by 7/31/12.
  • Packages should be handmade gifts or crafting supplied made and/or selected based on getting to know your partner. Please don't tell your partner to just select something from your Etsy shop.
  • You don't need a blog to participate. 

Come 8/1/12, we'll have a link party showing off all the fun gifts you've made for your partner. 

Feel free to leave any questions in the comments section. That way others can see the questions and answers {I'm hoping to cut down on duplicate emails here}.

Please be sure to check out the blogs of my partners in crime, Kelley from the Grant life and Brooke from Covered in Grace. They are both fantastic. You'll be glad did!
