    Yay! Partner assignments for the Lilypad Letters swap for August are here! If you 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. Also, please make suggestions for October's themes at this time!

    August Themes:

    *Throwback (any decade)
    @Kat and @BevG
    @Becca Bonneville and @Kat (Kat you were the only one willing to do 2 this month, hope that is ok?)

    *Pamper Me/Girly Things/Self Care
    @jenn mccabe and @busywoman139


    Please remember: send a full trading card sized/9 pocket page protector with each pocket filled (& include a letter) to your partner. See my Pinterest Board for ideas regarding what to send. The original post with full details is 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. Follow your assigned theme.
    4. Regardless of what theme you signed up for, you can ask a few basic questions to find out what your partner likes. For example: flavors they like or don’t like or favorite colors. Anything they are obsessed with. It’s up to you. But sometimes this helps if you are sending little things like tea, etc.
    5. Be mindful of how much bulk/stuff you add. You can stuff to your heart’s content, but the bulk will add to the cost of shipping. Perhaps you and your partner can discuss if you prefer to “stuff” or go lighter/thinner?
    6. You have until the end of the month to get your letter in the mail to your partner. It does not have to arrive by the end of the month, it just should be mailed by the last day of the month.
    7. Please remember to take a photo before you send your letter 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!
    8. Remember to use at least 75% TLP if using digi supplies.
    9. When you receive your letter, PM/email your partner to confirm you received it.
    10. Share what you made for Sept here in this thread (and in the gallery if it contains 50% TLP stuff) so we can oooh and ahhhh over your creations!
    Have FUN!!!!

    How's everyone feeling about Oct? Should we take a month hiatus? Come back for Nov?

    Let me know if you all are up for an Oct Lilypad Letter or not ... and we need themes if so. I normally post a poll to vote around the 11th ... 3 days from now.

    Theme ideas:
    halloween
    feathers and wings
    fall

    I have a ton of halloween and fall stuff I'd love to use but it seems participation is low lately.

    I would love Halloween or Fall. I am behind a bit but still up for participating. I agree things seem slow. Not sure how to get more interest. I love doing these!

    I'm enjoying doing the letters! That said, I am launching into my busy time at work (and likely picking up some part time seasonal work as well) so I will sit the next 1-2 out.

    I will be working most of October, so it will be a busy time for me. I am okay taking a month off.

    Ok - I'm thinking this month's participation will be very light. I'll skip doing a poll/vote and when it's time I'll just post a request for sign ups and anyone joining in can do Halloween or Fall (your choice). Hopefully that works for all ... if anyone is not Ok with that just let me know.

    I'm traveling a little bit and have a busy month too - so I may just skip Oct myself. Have to see how it goes.
