New Years resolution Swap
The aim of this swap is to help each other out with those pesky New years resolutions we all make. We each list a couple of things we want to do in 2013 and our partner will choose 3 to craft for. For example: if I said I wanted to eat more healthily my partner could send me a booklet of healthy recipes.
Send out by Friday 22nd Feb
Libby & Tamara
Mary & 36 Green Ducks
Please contact your partner by personal message and send them a list of your resolutions, along with your address. Please send at least 5 resolutions so your partner has a few to choose from, as I envisage that some may be more difficult to craft for than others. Its ok to send research based items such as list of websites/blogs that your partner can consult to help her keep her resolutions but please make sure that this isn't the bulk of the swap.
There is quite a long send out date on the swap, so feel free to send out early. Have fun everyone and be creative!

Since 36 green ducks has suggested bumping this I'll post partners later today.
hey everyone! i've posted partners and also edited the swap details to say a bit more about the swap.
I hope everyone has got in touch with each other now and started crafting!
Of course we are! ^______^
Looks great! I posted out today! so Tamara you should get yours soon.
Here are the amazing things Libby made/gave me for my three resolutions!
I love the little pouch she made me for keeping my headphones in and all the little body items and lip gloss will be really useful. The booklet she made me has lots of useful advice and websites.

All the craft stuff is great, I've never seen most of it anywhere before and can't wait to use it for scrapbooking!

I'm looking forward to trying the recipes and suggestions for meals in this folder, its been put together so nicely and I love all the decoration and extra touches and she even included two vouchers for free graze boxes.
Thanks so much Libby, I loved this swap!

You're welcome tamara! I'm glad you liked everything. Just to recap for everyone Tamara's resolutions were to be more motivated to go to the gym, to find more time for scrapbooking & card making & to eat more healthily. If you want to know where I sourced any of the scrapbooking stuff pm me.
I forgot to say when i sent out that the blank pages in the recipe book are so you can write in our own, and the envelopes are for any recipes you rip out of magazines or photocopy from books.
I think your swap has arrived, I have a package thats gone to the sorting office, I need to go collect it tomorrow. I'll let you when I have it. x
@ Tamara: I went and got your package from the postoffice yesterday. Thank you loads, everything is great. Here's my first resolution: to eat more healthily: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/63887105@N07/8504230715/" title="WP_000416 by Greengirlie, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8108/8504230715_d169f7b6e2.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="WP_000416"></a> She sent me healthy snacks (dried cranberrys, yogurt covered raisins [I seriously LOVE these I once bought a multipack and ate all the packs in a weekend-oops!], dried mango, breakfast biscuits & mini-haribo/chocolate coin). All with inspirational quotes, which I'm going to keep after I've eaten all the snacks. A healthy living magazine, which I've never actually bought before & a recipe book of healthy recipes. I also wanted to write more letters, so she sent me this gorgeous letter writing set: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/63887105@N07/8505337242/" title="WP_000426 by Greengirlie, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8375/8505337242_0237984466.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="WP_000426"></a> And finally I'm trying to return my library books on time (I'm really awful at this!) So she made me this pretty bookmark with a section to slide the due date into. I love the purple colours and key charm. <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/63887105@N07/8504229777/" title="WP_000427 by Greengirlie, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8245/8504229777_f3e31d6b73.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="WP_000427"></a> I can't wait to see what you make for each other Mary & Ducks
