It was cold outside yesterday. So cold I made the boys wear toques and winter coats. And when I was outside on the playground with my kindergarten class, I found myself wishing for a scarf and, even more than that, a nice warm pair of gloves. So, it was probably meant to be that last night while I was cruising Twitter, I came across this post and the most perfect swap!
It's the Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap 2011, and it took me all of about ten seconds to decide I simply had to join. Here's how it works:
Visit much love illy and get all excited about the awesomeness of the swap. Decide right away that you absolutely must join in the fun. Sign up by November 4th by filling in the online form. You'll get your partner's info on November 9th and then, the fun begins! Your job will be to put together a fabulous little parcel containing a cozy pair of gloves and some other things to warm your partner's heart this winter. Send it off by November 30th and wait for your own parcel full of goodies to arrive. How could I resist that? I couldn't! Can you? Pair it up with darling Micaela's 3rd Annual Christmas Ornament Exchange, and your mailbox will be bursting with love well before the holidays are here. And what could be better than that?
Now, time to make some cocoa...
