It’s time to kickoff the 3rd Annual Design Crush/Greedy Girl Calendar Swap! I’ll be posting some calendar roundups through the end of the month to give you some of the best of the best, and Caroline will be sharing some too. We hope you’ll join in on the awesome!
Here’s what you need to know:
By October 29th (that’s a Saturday), email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the following:
… your name
… your email address
… the name of your blog and, also, the name of your favorite blog
… your snail-mail address
… whether you prefer an international or in country swapmate – or does it matter?
… are you interested in sending (and receiving) more than one calendar (from different swappers)? If so, how many?
We’ll pair you up and send your swapmate’s details on or around November 2nd.
You MUST have your calendar sent by November 23rd (that’s the day before US Thanksgiving).
Here are some things to keep in mind:
VALUE. Keep your calendar between $20 and $30. And, since there are some perfectly lovely and super-affordable calendars out there, you might try throwing in a few small goodies if the calendar’s value doesn’t quite add up. Also, handmade is great — just remember the suggested value.
SHIPPING. If you choose to have an international swapmate, don’t forget it will cost you a little bit more (a few dollars, maybe) to ship your calendar.
CONSIDERATION. Check out your swapmate’s website 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.
TIMELINESS. Please, please, please send your calendar on time.
THE FINE PRINT. This is the part we hate to have to mention, but it has to be said. Though it’s rare and has definitely gotten better over the years, it never fails that at least one super swapmate sent out the most amazing calendar and received nothing in return. And that pisses us off. If you’ve dropped the ball in the past, we know who you are and we’ll be watching for you. You’re on a list. A black list.
