Fabulous Fall Exchange

It's finally time! I've decided to host my first ever exchange! I decided to do fall, because in all honesty it's my favorite season. It's seriously the best! It has the best colors, smells, food, activities, clothing... etc. Because this is my first exchange I'm letting anyone sign up, however if you do not follow through on YOUR exchange you will be banned from doing any other exchanges on my blog. It is really unfair for you to get a box and you not send one out, please don't be that person!

Here are the rules to sign up:
  1. I will only be taking 11 sign ups
  2. If you want to do it (do not post if you can't commit) leave a comment filling out the questionnaire at the bottom of this post
  3. I will post the partners on Friday September 23 - I will be putting names into a random generator to get the partnerships
  4. Your package must not be more than $30 - not including shipping
  5. Your package must be sent out no later than October 15
  6. Please get delivery confirmation with your package and send that info to your partner
  7. I understand things happen, if you need to pull out of the exchange let me know ASAP so I can get a new partner together
Here are some basic guidelines for your package: this exchange is all about Fall, so be creative! Maybe include some items from where you live, but this is a fall exchange so leave it to the season. Please be mindful of where you're shipping it and prepare package accordingly (i.e. wrap any fragile items in bubble wrap). Most of all, HAVE FUN!!!

If you want to sign up, and you know you can participate, please leave a comment on this post answering the following questions:
