**IMPORTANT NOTE: The sign-up deadline for 2011 has now passed, but I plan to continue the swap in 2012 so if you'd like to go ahead and sign up in advance, feel free! You will be added to the list and I'll contact you in November to see if you're still interested in participating. **
I'm excited to announce this spinoff of The Great Blogger Cookie Swap: The Postcard Project Cookie Swap--for all those who don't have blogs but would like to spread joy and support the US Postal service by participating in a nation-wide cookie swap.
If you would like to sign up to participate, please fill out all fields below. You will be matched to three other participants, and you will mail each one a dozen cookies, along with your recipe. You will also receive a dozen cookies from three other participants. You spread joy, you support the US Postal Service, and you get some cookies. Talk about sweet returns!
This is a "Secret Santa" type of exchange, meaning it will be kept secret who has who's name and it will be a (sweet) surprise when you get your cookies. I encourage you to include a card or personal letter to your recipient to tell them a little about yourself, or even about your cookies if there's a story or history behind them.
If you have dietary restrictions or allergies (vegan, gluten-free, etc.), be sure to note them in the appropriate field so you can be matched to another person with the same restrictions.
This cookie swap is open to US & Canadian residents. If you live in another country and would like to participate, go ahead and fill out the form, and if I get at least four other registrations from people in your country, I will include you. You will know by November 18 if I received enough entries from your country.
Sign Up Deadline: Friday, November 18, 2011
Receive Your Matches: Monday, November 21, 2011
Shipment Deadline: Monday, December 5, 2011
After submitting this form, be sure to click the link in your email to confirm your subscription. You WILL NOT be included in the swap if you do not confirm your subscription. I will be using this list to send you reminders and updates throughout the event. This will also ensure you're on the list to be contacted for next year's swap (yes, I hope to make it an annual thing!).
If you have any questions, send an email to me at email@example.com and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that this cookie swap is entirely separate from The Great Blogger Cookie Swap and if you have questions about that one, please click the link to find out more.
