Holly Days Fall Swap Success

October 24, 2012Holly Sosa
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know I hosted a fall mail swap last month.  It was a huge success.  Huge.  I love mail swaps & apparently, so do a lot of you!  It’s so much fun to get a package in the mail & I love the anticipation of wanting to know what you get!
I prefer joining swaps that are hosted by someone because I know not a lot of people are comfortable just giving their address out.  When I host a swap, I am the only person with everyone’s information.  I take the time to verify people are real & addresses are legit.  Then I give people out at random.  That way the only people who see your address are myself & whomever gets you as their person.  However, I take it a little further.  I also gather FB & Instagram info & give it to your person along with any other facts I know about you.  That way, we can personalize our packages & make them even more fun!
One girl in particular took the info she was given & totally blew it out of the water!  Korey, who blogs at Bell & Pistol, got super crafty & made customized mugs for her girl with the quotes, “Let’s blog some shit!” &, “It’s pronounced ker-AND-duh.” Her person was Kiranda from Mommyhood.  That was exactly what I was looking forward to with this swap!  You guys are all so creative & I love how awesome this ended up turning out!
Follow me on Instagram (@ourhollydays) to join in on future swaps.  I already posted a listing for a Christmas swap that has over 100 people participating so far!  I am planning many more themed ones in the future (mug swap, sock swap, Valentine’s swap, state swap, etc), so be sure to get in on the fun!
