{sign-up for} The Tradition Exchange

for the past five years we’ve had swaps for the kiddos. our mailboxes overflow with fun little packages filled with beautiful little pieces to hand on our trees handmade by our precious little ones. and every year i get people emailing me asking if they can join even though they don’t have kids. the reason for this is, of course, it’s fun to swap and no matter how old you are it’s fun getting packages in the mail. so, this year, after some facebook encouragement, i decided to organize an adult swap and see how it goes. if it goes well, i’ll add it to the list of other annual traditions. if not, at least we tried!

first rule is: you don’t have to be an orthodox mom to participate. i’m opening this swap to whoever wants to participate!

second rule is: the swap package needs to total a minimum of $20.00 to keep it fair.

third rule is: package must be postmarked by thursday, december 13.

the theme is Christmas Traditions. {thanks to Jennifer of Illumination Learning for the theme suggestion. I <3 it!} I think this is a fabulous way to share a bit of ourselves and things we love with each other. Don’t you?

packages could include one of your favorite books or movies.

you should also include a note explaining why the contents of your package are a favorite christmas tradition for you.

another thing you can do is include a favorite recipe and cookie cutter.

i think the best way to come up with ideas is to first write down all of your favorite traditions. then read through your list and decide what you can expand on for your package.

be creative! just please keep the minimum cost in mind.

If you’re interested, please be sure to include all of the information listed below:

email your name, favorite things or hobbies, if you’re Orthodox or not, address and the ages of your children if you have, to Sylvia{at}OrthodoxMom{dot}com. I’m asking more personal questions for this swap to make it as personalized to your personality and lifestyle as possible!

PLEASE put “THE TRADITION EXCHANGE” in the subject line so you’re email doesn’t get lost in my inbox!

Deadline for sign-ups is December 7, 2012.

  1. […] year, we had a terrific response to our Christmas Tradition Swap but I thought I’d do something a little earlier since we also do the Orthodox Kid’s […]
