Last year I hosted FJ's first paper exchange. It was a fun way to meet other people who have a crush on paper products, planner goodies and office supplies as much as I do, and to send someone something to make them smile! [ My cute cousin found her love for planners through this exchange] I got a few emails from ladies recently, asking if I was going to do it again because they missed it last year. The answer is YES! :)
Here are the details for the exchange.
When you sign up and you'll be paired with one other person. You'll get their contact info, so reach out and get to know a bit about them. Follow them on instagram or other social media, get an idea for their style and then you'll create either a pocket letter, a stash of embellished journaling cards, note cards, fun paper/office products or something paper related and ship it off to them in the mail. This is meant to make someone smile so be sure to make it personal and include an uplifting phrase or quote! Please note... this isn't a destash your scraproom of things you'll never use. Think about something you'd love to get in the mail...and give something similar. Maybe you've been holding onto a roll of washi tape that you just love, use THAT in your gift. Get my drift? :) It doesn't have to be super spendy, and you don't have to be a professional paper crafter to participate! Just be creative and have some fun!
Now for the official stuff. Please read it all before signing up! Commitment and communication are key. If you are paired up, be in contact. If you don't send a gift... this leaves your partner without one, which is never fun.
Timeline: Please, please make sure you can commit!

- Partners assigned July 18
- Create/curate your gift and have it post marked and in the mail by Aug 20. Be sure to take a cute photo before you close up the package and providing your partner with tracking info would be awesome too!
Once you've signed up please share the exchange with your friends...and once you've received your awesome gift, don't forget to snap a photo and #fjpaperexchange on instagram so we can see!
