It's Swap Time!

Are you ready for another swap my bookish friends? I sure am! There's nothing better than receiving a box full of amazing goodies, except maybe curating a box for someone else!

To start, please make sure you read the General Guidelines post. If you get to the end of the document and still have a burning question, email me or comment here! I'm always happy to help.



This swap is Valentine's Day themed, or all about that bookish love! Channel all things hearts, flowers, and chocolate while you make your box. The theme is, of course, open to interpretation!

The following items are required in your package:

* One book of your choice. 
We're shooting for romance here, but it's up to you what level you want to take that to! Are you thinking steamy? Sweet? Or maybe paranormal? All fair game!

Something sinfully delicious. 
You know what goes wonderfully with a romance novel? A sinfully delicious snack. This is totally open to interpretation, as it doesn't have to be sweet, but you'll get definite points for presentation!

A Valentine's Day note to your lovely swap partner.
Have some fun with this one! Make it, buy it, scrawl it in calligraphy. It's your choice.

Money Limit: 
Your box must contain items that add up to at least $15. Anything beyond that is your own personal choice, if you'd like to add extras. You may also add items that are not on the theme list if you so choose!
        * Some helpful hints:
                 - Check out dollar stores. You can get lots of fantastic and fun items there!
                 - Shop the dollar spot at local stores like Target or Walmart.
                 - Go thrift store hunting. This is perfectly okay! Just make sure the item is in good condition.
                    (A good rule of thumb is to think, "Would I want to receive this?")
                 - Re-gift something of yours (in good condition of course) that you think fits the box.
                 - Make something. It's cool to include something handmade. Again, just make sure it's something     
                    you'd like to receive yourself.
