'Australia Day Swap' for 2018... Sign Up Here!

I'm excited to announce sign-ups are open again for the Australia Day Swap!
 It was great fun in January this year, & the ladies who joined in certainly showed some wonderful imagination with the items they sent to their partners!
Here's the deal:
FIVE items are chosen & sent to your partner. They each must start with one letter from the word AUSTRALIA & at least one item must bear the Australian flag.
 Here's some ideas - have fun being as creative as you like:
*A - Australian flag item such as serviettes, paper bunting, little cocktail glass flags/umbrellas
*U - utensil, utterly gorgeous lace
*S - seeds for flowers/herbs, stripey fabric, small sunscreen, sewing thread
*T - craft trims, tea towel (patriotic?), tape measure, tealight candle
*R - rubber bands, ribbon, red buttons, recipe
*A - aqua fabric, apple-print fabric, Australian Tea
*L - lovely hand cream, lollies, liquorice
*I - infuser for tea leaves, ice cube tray, re-usable ice cubes, gel ice pack
*A - Australian fabric, apron, aloe gel
(for example, you might send items starting with A, I, L, R & T)
Label each item with the letter they represent & your own description of that - wrapping of individual items is senders choice.
All items may be purchased - no requirement to make anything.
Please only send FIVE items - strictly no extras - this hopefully gives you enough scope to make this a fun swap, but keep postal costs reasonable.
Sign up will close on the 5th of January
Partner info will be sent out by the 8th
Posting MUST be made on or before 15th January
You can open your parcel when you receive it, no need to wait until Australia Day.
(open to Australian participants only)
Whaddy-Ya-Reckon, Mate?
If you want to join in, leave a Comment ON THIS POST ONLY, or email me directly.
Please make sure I can reply to you.

AM I mistaken or did't I read last year that this was only for those living in Australia. If this is not the case. I would love to join. Waiting anxiously to hear from you.
