    Yay! Partner assignments for the Lilypad Hybrid Happy Mail Swap for Spring are here! There is no set theme or requirement for what to send. You and your partner can discuss what you would like to do or simply state "anything goes" meaning your partner can make anything they wish for you.

    We'll do this Quarterly - each season, so you have 3 whole months to craft your happy mail. We'll start another swap for the Summer season- so look for sign ups at the beginning of June!

    Partners:
    @lcpereyra and @Dalis
    @Karen and @MishSpar
    @FarrahJobling and @BevG
    @Laura ODonnell and @jenn mccabe
    @Nemla and @Annsofie
    @michele hillam and Mei (pm @BevG )

    I have a Pinterest Board for ideas regarding what to send. Some suggestions: pocket letters, flip books, mini books, envelope style flip books, loaded embroidery hoops, loaded bags ... so many possibilities and they are all an adorable way to send your partner a little love and happy through the mail! Youtube is filled with tutorials on how to make these items. The original post for our previous Lilypad Letters Swap is full of information specific to Pocket Letters and can be found HERE. If you are interested in doing the pocket letter and want a digital template to help get the sizes correct for printing @Rikki created one for Mirjam's blog with a little tutorial - check it out here.


    Some helpful hints/tips to get started:
    1. PM your partner to get your swap going. Please do this right away at the beginning of the month. From there you can exchange emails or continue to exchange info via the PM/Conversation feature through the Lilypad site.
    2. Only share your personal info/address via PM/email.
    3. You have until the end of June to get your happy mail sent out to your partner.
    4. Please remember to take a photo before you send your happy mail out, but wait until you hear back from your partner (that they received it) to post the photo so you don’t spoil their Happy Mail surprise!
    5. Remember to use at least 75% TLP if using digi supplies.
    6. When you receive your letter, PM/email your partner to confirm you received it.
    7. Share what you made for our Spring Swap here in this thread (and in the gallery if it meets the TLP product requirement) so we can oooh and ahhhh over your creations!
    Have FUN!!!!

    Yay! @Laura ODonnell and I have chatted ... and we are doing a Lilypad Pocket Letter swap with Self Care as the theme. I am so excited to get started ... I really have missed these swaps immensely. And the extra time to complete (rather than monthly) feels do-able!

    When the rest of you ladies match up w/your partners ... let us know what you will be swapping! We can use this thread for questions, post progress, and just stay connected. :beat

    There's more than 3 months to complete this swap, so if someone else comes along and wants in, feel free to partner up and let us know. Or ... if no one comes along ... I'm happy to do 2.

    Hi all - My daughter Mei would like to participate if you still need a partner for someone. She also owes one of you a pocket page from long long ago. She gets out of college in early May, so should be able to catch up soon.

    I have started planning out what I'm doing for @Karen. I think I'm just going to surprise her. :-)
