Color Me Happy

I've been wanting to host another gift swap since I came up with the idea for the Brown Paper Packages swap. With one swap under my belt I'm a little bit wiser so hopefully this swap will go a little smoother.

Without further ado I introduce the Color Me Happy package exchange.

About the Exchange:
The Color Me Happy exchange is all about favorite colors. (Remember, I'm the girl who named her cat Purple because that was my favorite color).
We all have a favorite color and chances are you have lots of things in your favorite color, but here's your chance to get some more! Your exchange partner will be told your favorite color and then pick 3 items in that color to send to you.

Swap Partners:
For this swap you will be paired up with one person that you will send to & receive from (the better to build a relationship, my dears).

If you live outside of the US you will be paired with someone from a different country. If you live within the US please make a note as to whether or not you are willing to ship outside of the US.

1. Don't be a flake (sadly, I've gotten emails about people who never received their Brown Paper Packages and it makes me super sadcakes)
2. I'm not putting a monetary requirement on this exchange as I don't want anyone to not join because of financial restrictions but keep in mind that quality gifts are appreciated and make sure you would be happy to receive the gifts you send.

Please send me an email by June 23 saying you want to participate. I will email swap partners by June 28. Please send your package by July 25.
