    Yay! Partner assignments for the Lilypad Letters swap for July are here!

    I tried to pair based on first choice for theme ... and making sure everyone had a different partner this time to swap with! :)

    Coffee/Tea Theme
    @Sokee and @ArmyGrl

    Books/Reading
    @melidy and @Nemla
    @londoncuppa and @lmccandless
    @michele hillam and @jang

    Photography/Cameras
    @jenn mccabe and @Rikki
    @Kat and @Becca Bonneville
    @KatrinaHunt13 and @EHStudios


    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 JULY here in this thread (and in the gallery) so we can oooh and ahhhh over your creations!

    ***Please feel free to suggest ONE idea for August's theme and then we can vote for the top 2 or 3 theme choices for August. We can recycle theme ideas too!

    A sign up for August's swap will come mid-month!

    :hehe Good to know! :giggle

    For everyone else I Had one of those 'moments' and I sent my cards out for June, without the pocket page protector.... I though the page protector was for me to have here to put the cards I get in the mail. July I will get it done Correctly!

    Suggestion for August

    August’s birthstone, the peridot, symbolizes strength.
    AUGUST BIRTHSTONE COLOR
    It is sometimes called the evening emerald for its light green color.

    Would be interesting to do cards on Strength

    Just picked me out a couple kits to try my hand at hybrid! You've paired me with the hybrid queen, so I'm hoping I don't disappoint! :giggle

    Besides Strength another category could be using only the color Green?

    I second @michele hillam 's suggestion. Anything Outdoor would be really fun. Could be into the woods as well as gardening.

    I'm throwing in Nom Nom Nom (food!)

    I have a few suggestions that did not make it onto the July voting poll, but they are from @DisneyMom and since she needs to break for July/Aug, I don't want to use her ideas until she comes back to the swap. So I'll put those aside. So far we have:

    Things we do to treat ourselves
    Aug Birthstone Color : Peridot
    Aug Birthstone Symbology : Strength
    Friendship/Internet Friends/Girlfriends
    Into the Woods
    Into the Garden
    Beach/Water
    Nom Nom Nom (food)

    We can include 2 more for a total of 10. Should we grab some of the top choices from the last poll? Or do you guys have other ideas?
    Music/Songs
    Movies/TV shows

    Anything else you want to see?
