Monday Mayhem - Favorite Things Swap!

The Pink Potpourri is very proud to announce it is hosting its very first
Favorite Things Swap!

After reading everyone's valued opinions, thoughts and interests in the swap, I have decided that a Favorite Things Swap covers everyones likings and desires!!!

So what are some of your favorite things? Do you love recipes? Do you read a book a week? What are your gifts and talents? Do make anything homemade or have an etsy page? If you have any favorite things, you can be a part of this swap!!!

Being a part of this swap is very easy. You will need to choose at least three (3) or more objects that are YOUR favorite things to send to the swap partner I assign to you. It can be anything! Your favorite soaps you use, books you read, items you make, etc...things that you love to get for yourself! there are endless possibilities! Your items can be vintage, bought or handmade. Just be thinking when you're putting your items together, "Is this something I'd want someone to send me?"

Are you sitting on the edge of your seat, ready to find out how to sign up???
Contain yourselves, readers!!! :)
