Last year’s Halloween Swap was a big hit. We’re doing it again this year, but we’re keeping it all within our Halloween Goodie Swap Facebook Group, to make it easier to keep in contact with everybody.
Last year a few people didn’t get a package in return, because their partner never sent them one. That sucks, and we’re making sure that doesn’t happen this year by having everyone get a tracking number when they ship their package.
The rules changed a little this year — if you want to participate, you’ll need to join the FB group. From there, you can pick your own partner or ask who still needs a partner. You can have more than one partner if you’d like. You’ll have to send each partner their own package, but you’ll get double the goodies in return!
The swap will go for 7 days leading up to October 31st. Each day, you’ll open an individual (small) package marked day 1, day 2, day 3 and so on. Each day’s goodie has a theme. This year, the themes are:
Day 1 – Something “creepy crawly” or gross.
Day 2 – Something old OR something glittery.
Day 3 – Something involving your partner’s favorite scent.
Day 4 – Something handmade (by you or someone else).
Day 5 – Something Halloween-themed involving your partner’s favorite color.
Day 6 – Something Halloween-themed that you can wear.
Day 7 – Your partner’s favorite candy or baked item.
Hopefully everyone who wants to participate will have a partner by September 15th, which gives you plenty of time to gather the goodies, wrap and label them, and ship them out (in one box that holds all of them). You partner would then open each one on the appropriate day, and instagram/tweet/blog/facebook pictures of the goodies you sent them.
This is a lot of fun to do, and we’ve already started pairing up on the FB page. If you think you might want to participate, please read the necessary rules and guidelines to find out all details before joining the group. We need to make sure it’s completely safe and fair for everyone!
I’m putting this out nice and early so we can get as many people to participate as possible. The more the merrier! Come check out the Group Page.
I just realized I’m a “90’s kid” cliche…

This week was kind of nuts, in a lot of ways. A real roller coaster. A few awful things happened, but many things came to light. This week was a bunch of “the truth comes out!” moments, or things that truly need our attention. Some things were also kind of awesome and helped to make things brighter. The highlights:
★ My friend Liza’s acoustic version of “She Keeps Me Warm”. Beautifully done.
★ Make art, make love, make out, make $ via stonedbabygirl.
★ Jumanji, Monday night, after the sad news of Robin Williams’s death. I’m sure many of us have been watching our favorite Robin Williams movies this past week in our own little way of paying tribute. This should really be a wake up call to many people about how depression should be treated.
★ Taking double exposure photographs with the Vignette photo app.
★ Winged eyeliner! I’m still perfecting my technique, and experimenting with colors.
★ In reference to all the terrible things going on, most recently the shooting and police brutality in Ferguson, MO.
