So, in my last post I mentioned an idea that I got from the super rad package that Christin sent me. You know how other bloggers do book exchanges or ornament exchanges? Maybe someone else is already doing this, but I was thinking it would be neat to start a "get to know me knick knack exchange."
Since there are so many blogging friends to be made, I thought we could get paired up with someone (a new someone each time) and send an item that told them a little about us. For example, if you make things, send a sample, or if you like polaroids, send one you took, or if you like birds (I'm using myself as an example), you could send a little bird knick knack or something with feathers. Nothing expensive or difficult, just a fun little thing that says something about you. Then to really make it personal, add a hand written note about the item, about yourself, about anything you want!
Maybe this is a silly idea, so I'm hoping to hear your feedback. I thought it would be a fun excuse to send and receive special packages, and it could introduce us to bloggers we haven't yet met or get to know some a little better.
