Australia Day Swap

Be sure to come back mid-December 2019 to check for sign-ups!

 Let's show our love of our great country & have a good fun Aussie themed swap!

This swap takes place each year, to co-incide with Australia's National Holiday.
Sign-ups are mid-December, then you have about a week to gather your items & mail them off to your partner. Specific dates are published closer to the time.

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
*A - aqua fabric, apple-print fabric, Australian Tea
*L - lovely hand cream, lollies, licorice
*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 down...we all know, the heavier the parcel, the higher the postage cost!
You can open your parcel when you receive it, no need to wait until Australia Day.
(open to Australian participants only)

Here is some pics from the 2017 & 2018 swaps, to give you some ideas... you can click on any of the images, to take a closer look
