Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


Valentines Blogger Swap

Last night on twitter I was complaining about my lack of Valentine and the lovely Carlyn of Smoking Peaches suggested that we have a valentines themed swap so that everyone could get something on the day (or near the day if Royal Mail has anything to do with it!). I thought this was a brilliant idea, I’ve never actually received a V-day card before!
We were thinking that you could send a card and a small gift (under £5) to your partner to make Valentines Day extra special for them! This could be a handmade gift or shop bought, it doesn’t matter : )
As it’s so soon (14 days!) you’re going to have to sign up by 7pm on Sunday the 5th of Feb if you want to take part. And I will let you know who your partner is at some point on Monday the 6th.
I’m thinking that it should be kind of like a secret santa, so we should all sign our cards with a ‘?’ to make it even more exciting.
- As this is going to be a secret swap you will have to send your package by a trackable delivery method, so they don’t get lost!
- You will need to post your gift by Friday 10th February to make sure it arrives in time, email me with the tracking code so that I can keep an eye on it and make sure it arrives!
- Also once you’ve received your gift let me know!
- The spend limit is £5
-Make sure you don’t give away your identity in your card, sign it with a ? Once everyone has received their gift we can share who had who (that’s not correct English…)
- UK only I’m afraid as it’s such short notice!

If you would like to sign up, please send me an email with your blog address, your home address and any allergies so that I can send this to your partner once I’ve paired you up. (I will obviously delete all information once the swap is over)
My email address is: paperbackspostcards@gmail.com
The closing date is 7pm 5/2/12
Feel free to tell all of your friends! Let’s spread the love and cheer this Valentines Day!
Also if anyone thinks I’ve forgotten anything important let me know! I’m a novice organiser!
