Swap: verb \ˈswäp\-
:: to make an exchange

Is anyone interested in a state vacation swap?
I think it will be wonderful.
Vacation time is coming soon and many
of you will be traveling to other states or
maybe you will be staying in your home
state and enjoying the sites. The idea is
to put together some items that tell your
partner about your state, what items make
it unique?  Postcards, food items, handmades,
fibers and rocks are just a few examples.

If you would like to take part in this swap, please leave a comment in this post and please email your:
  • Name (full name)
  • Address (including the state where you live)
  • Email address (please include this so I can just copy and paste your details into the data base)
  • Blog link, if you have one
to my email address, and I will pair you up with a swap partner.

I will keep this post open until the 19th of May. Once you receive your swap partner it would be nice to have all the items mailed by the first of June.

UPDATE: Yes, this swap is an international swap so everyone can play!

I know sometimes things come up and if something happens where you can't
participate after you have a partner, please let me know so I can assign them someone else. This swap is just to have a little fun and I wouldn't want anyone to be disappointed. :)


  1. What a fun idea! Sadly we cant join in. My hubby will be teaching all summer long. No vacations for us this year. And too bad, we live in a prime vacay location!

    1. KO, the swap is open to anyone, regardless if you are taking a vacation. The idea was to show off our the state we live in! :)

  2. What a good idea! I am presuming you are not meaning a physical swap of house merely a virtual swap?

  3. Can I participate from Canada??? If so, I am in! Sounds like fun.

    1. Sure Kim, I guess I should have said country too! :)

  4. I'm in -- from the Grand Canyon State -- one of the most beautiful in the nation!
