On New Years Day, I asked my friend Dana if she was interested in doing a Shoebox Swap- I have actually participated in a couple Shoebox Swaps that Dana hosted a few years ago! My friend Dana found this fun swap idea when she came across this post on The Homespun Heart back in 2007. She and I haven't participated in a Shoebox Swap in years, so it was pretty exciting deciding who to invite to participate in this swap & picking out a fun theme!
Dana picked out the theme COZY! Dana invited her friend Nichole to participate in the swap & I invited my friends Marilyn, Ronya & Brittany. Once we heard back from each of our friends we emailed them a questionnaire to fill out:
Shoebox Swap Questionnaire
1. When you think of "COZY" what comes to mind?
2. What are your favorite colors?
3. What are your favorite hobbies?
4. Tell us a little bit about yourself/What would you want your partner to know about you?
Once partners were assigned, we sent everyone an email with their partners information & questionnaire answers, and the swapping began!
Partner Assignments: Nichole & Ronya | Dana & Brittany | Marilyn & Cindi
Since it was our first time co-hosting a Shoebox Swap together, we decided our first swap be "invite only" among our friends... However, Dana & I are hoping that fellow bloggers, followers & friends will be interested in participating in future Shoebox Swaps! I think that it would be a fun way to get to know one another better & make new friends!
