valentine swap!!!

Ok, so back to this swap idea…(Scroll down a few entries to see the original post on this) We are sooo excited there are so many people interested in participating. We are definitely gonna get this rolling. I had originally planned on using swap-bot to orchestrate the swap, but it appears you have to participate in a swap and receive a good rating before you can host a swap. So it looks like I’m managing this myself.
Here’s the deal…
Leave a comment on this post and be sure to included your name, address and email. I will not publish the comments, so the world (or fp blog readers to be more precise) will not all know your personal info. I will organize all the partnering and email everyone to let them know who their buddy is and where to send the Valentines loot.
The rules…
I think we should include international participants. I would be totally stoked to receive a handmade gift from an fp fan in Sweden or where ever. If you are totally against shipping internationally, say so in your comment when you leave your info. I won’t pair you with someone out of the US.
Make anything you want on the theme of Valentines. Handmade cards, gift boxes, accessories, get creative.
You MUST respond to this post with your mailing info by Friday, January 19th. Goodies should be shipped before Wednesday February 7th so your partner receives by Vday.
Did I miss any important details??? Happy making!
And again about the above photo… I was wandering around on flickr and came across this book. I think it’s absolutely incredible and had to post it. Here is the link to the site. I was informed this book was created by a group of artists as part of a “fat book” project. Each artist submitted a set of pages and one person compiled the book. Sounds really fun.

for Yasmin,
Sorry it took so long to respond. I wasn’t publishing most of these comments because people left their addresses.
I don’t know how long it takes to ship from Israel. I think you should participate if you’d like, even if it comes a few days later. Maybe you could find out how long delivery takes??? Send me your info if you’re still interested!
