POC HOLI-YAY! SWAP 2017



Can you believe it is mid-November?!

We’ve been having so much fun all year with the Pink Owl Creations Swaps, and I cannot wait to see how we wrap up 2017 with our December Holi-YAY Swap!

Whether you are new to swapping (scratching your head wondering what it is), one that participates a few times a year, or one that jumps on board each and every time, keep reading. 

HOW DOES THE POC SWAP WORK?
Each swap is posted as a Facebook Event. The specific details are posted and if you want to join in, just choose GOING and you will receive all the additional information needed.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Ideally one of our fabulous members will have invited you to join us. If you found us on your own, you will be contacted by me and added accordingly. US ONLY participants currently. (If you live elsewhere and are interested, contact me direct.)

IS THERE A COST TO PARTICIPATE?
The cost of the box of goodies you curate for your partner + shipping. Your package should be valued at a minimum of $10 before shipping. You are more than welcome to spend more on your partner, but it is not to be expected. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AKA THE YUCKY PART
I am not responsible for any flakers. When you sign up remember you are taking a risk. I do my best to prevent this from happening, but of course I cannot make someone send a package.

NEW POLICY BEGINNING DECEMBER 2017
If you flake out and do not send a swap gift box, you will be forever banned from the group and any future swaps. All group members are made aware of any participant that does not follow through. Many of us are in different groups and you do not want a bad reputation, so please do not sign up if you will not follow through.
ARE YOU STILL INTERESTED AND WANT TO SIGN UP?


Until next time.

Your Holi-YAY! Box will need to include at least 4 winter holiday inspired items. 
1 Edible Treat (ask your receiver about any allergies)
1 card – either handmade or store bought
2 winter/winter holiday inspired items (think winter/holiday colors, themes, etc.)
…you may include additional items and while greatly appreciated it is not to be expected.

Please be mindful of mail time. Everyone would like to receive and enjoy their items while in season.

I’d be thrilled to have you join us!

Until Next Time,
 

THOUGHTS OF THANKSGIVING - DAY 1 and 2

I’ve often said that gratitude is learning to recognize and express appreciation for the benefits we have received. This means constantly being on the lookout for blessings, making each day a treasure hunt. It means being intentional about giving thanks for the blessings that come our way.

Many post what they are thankful for on Facebook and other social media sites and I thought why not create a little post daily myself.

I have had a sick toddler all week and am already starting off behind, so today is day 1 and day 2.
Hope this inspires you today!



Until next time,
