If you follow along on Instagram or Facebook you've heard about our little Valentine Snail Mail swap! We all enjoy getting a little snail mail love......am I right?
I thought hosting a Snail Mail Love package swap would be a great way to meet new friends, a good excuse to get my craft on, and fun way send a little love via good ol' snail mail.
Step 1. Register: Let me know you want in through one of the options below. Be sure to include your email address if you register via social media. Once registration closes I'll be in touch to get your address.
Step 2. Spread the Word: Blog, Instagram, Tweet, Facebook, Chi-Chat with your gal pals. However you choose to help us spread the word! This is our 1st year doing this so we need all the help we can get to get the word out about the Snail Mail Love package exchange! The more people that join in the more fun it will be! When sharing via Instagram or Twitter be sure to use #snailmaillove so we can find each other!
Step 3. Who's Your Buddy: On Tuesday, January 22nd I will email you the name and address of your Snail Mail Love exchange buddy. You will not actually be swapping back and forth with the same person you're assigned. You'll be sending to the person you're assigned and a different person will be sending you a package. This is great because you'll be able to meet to 2 new friends instead of one. Once you have your buddies info get started on your card and love package!
Step 4: Document The Journey: Share pictures of you getting your craft on, shopping for items for your package, shoot even share a photo of you waiting in line to mail your package. Get creative and share the journey with us! Seeing the process is all part of the fun and a great way to connect with others that are participating! I will pull some of my favorite photos to share on a later blog post. Don't forget to use the hashtag #snailmaillove!
Step 5. Send Your Snail Mail Love: On or before Saturday February 2nd mail your package. This means your package should be on its way NO LATER THAN Saturday, February 2nd!
Step 6. Receive & Document: Blog, Instagram, Tweet, Fcebook about your Snail Mail Love package and your adventure with the exchange. Sharing about what you received and your experience participating in the Snail Mail Love swap is part of the fun. Be sure and use #snailmaillove on Instagram and Twitter so we can all find each other!
Step 7. Link up! For those that blog I'll be hosting a Linky Party on February 19th so bloggers can link up their Snail Mail Love blog post. Yet another great way to connect with other participants. Even f you're not a blogger be sure to keep sharing photos and hash tagging #snailmaillove! I'll pull a few of my favorites and share them during our Linky Party!
**I don't live within the US can I still join?**
To keep shipping fair to everyone it's best if you live within he US. With that being said I really hate leaving folks out. Here's the fix! If you outside of the US but would like to participate shoot me an e-mail to let me know you want in and where you live. If we have another buddy enter that lives in your area I will match you up. I know there are several followers in Australia as well as UK and Canada sooooo it's worth a try! If I'm able to find a match for you I will be in touch to let you know!
Start gathering your goodies for your package and working on your card.
Have FUN and document the process!
