    Yay! Partner assignments for the Lilypad Letters swap for August!

    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 you should be sending. The original post with full details is HERE.

    Some helpful hints/tips to get started:
    1. PM your partner to get your swap going. 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.
    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 AUGUST here in this thread (and in the gallery) so we can oooh and ahhhh over your creations!

    ***Please feel free to suggest a few theme ideas for September's swap. Nom, Nom, Nom was tied for 3rd for July so that will automatically be a Sept. theme choice.

    We'll vote mid month and then sign ups for Sept will come near the end of Aug.

    I think movies would be fun (but now I say it, I feel like it's been suggested before?)

    Love the idea about a page about your hometown or where you live (gives others a chance to learn facts about other areas which is super cool)!

    So mine would be:
    Hometown/Where you live
    Favorite TV shows (for fall previews in September?)
    Something "yellow" (each team can choose a color and make a page with things of that color?)

    I love the TV, movies, and hometown ideas!

    It's Also International Talk Like a Pirate Day. So I nominate Pirate themed

    What about a "Celebrate" theme. Birthday's, Anniversaries or any of life's little celebrations - any day is an excuse for cake right?

    OMG it is adorable! What a happy happy bit of mail you rec'd!!! :)

    As to where to post them ... it doesn't really matter! I think the best part is the sharing! But maybe we can try to post them in the Partner assignment thread for the month they were created? So this was the July/Cameras theme ... keep it in the July Partner Assignment thread?

    But ... it's NOT a big deal at all @Kat - I think we're just excited to see them! Yay! :)

    I must admit it’s pretty much all I focussed on for three days. I thought I’d better get cracking because of the postage time I’m not sure how long it’ll take before arriving in Lena’s hands hehe.
