It’s been twelve long months since the last one, and I’m super stoked to announce the kickoff of the Design Crush/Greedy Girl Calendar Swap ’11! I’ll be posting lots and lots of calendars throughout the next few weeks, as will Caroline, to give you some ideas and send you in the right direction.
+ By October 30th, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and answer the following:
+ We’ll pair you up and send your swapmate’s details your way on or around November 1st.
+ You must have your calendar sent by November 21st.
+ Keep your calendar under $30 but no less than $20. And since there are some perfectly lovely and super-affordable calendars out there, you might try throwing in a few small goodies if the value doesn’t quite add up.
+ Mall kiosk calendars (sudoku, lettuce babies, Edward Cullen, etc.) are not ok. Just don’t do it.
+ Handmade is most definitely welcome — just keep in mind the $20-$30 suggested value.
+ Check out your swapmate’s web site or blog, or consider getting to know his or her tastes via e-mail, to get an idea of what he or she might like.
+ Please, please, please send your calendar on time and do not drop the ball. It breaks our hearts to hear of someone waiting well into the new year for their calendar or, even worse, not receiving one at all.
