Fancy Another Magazine Swap?

THE SWAP IS NOW CLOSED - SWAP PARTNERS WILL BE POSTED ON 14th SEPTEMBER!
j
Some of us had a lot of fun in a simple 'no frills' magazine swap at the beginning of this year. We talked about having a second go - swapping a homes/vintage/craft magazine from our own stash with someone from another country. If you'd like to have another go, please remind yourself of the rules below. If you want to join us for the first time, you are very welcome!Rules
j
Check that you have at least one magazine of the craft/vintage/lifestyle genre for the coming season that you are prepared to swap. Don't go out and buy a new one! Bearing in mind that people from different hemispheres have opposite seasons, the southerners might prefer a spring edition to an autumn one - I'd love to see an Aussie autumn mag, myself.
j
Sign up here, letting me know if you want a magazine in English or if you are prepared to just enjoy the pictures in a 'foreign-language' mag. Let me know if the mag you have is in English or another language. Mine are in French so it's fine to join in with non-English ones... Also let me know if you'd prefer to post locally or internationally.
j
Closing date for entries will be September 10th.
jjj
I will sort out swap partners and let you know your partner by September 14th. Get to know them a bit and check to see that you won't be posting something they already have a copy of! Exchage adresses by email.
j
Pack up your magazine and post it to your swap partner with a little note or pretty card, to arrive in or before early October. This is the No Frills part! No extras, no hard work, no feeling guilty because your partner sent you something extra that you didn't think to send them. No Frills. Easy Swap.
j
Obviously, please do advertise the swap by putting my logo and a link to this post onto your sidebar or in a post. The more the merrier!

Admin: To make it easier to count and match swappers, I'm deleting any 'second comments' so please don't panic if your second comment has gone - I've made a note of what you said!

Yes please! I'd love to exchange with an American or Australian (English speaking).

magsmcc said...

Oh, can I play this time please! I'd love a French magazine, but actually the thrill of the game would be quite sufficient!

bekimarie said...

VintageVicki said...

Oh yes please - count me in :)

I really fancy reading a US mag this time if you get any US bloggers taking part. Am sure a fall or christmas one from there would be fantastic.

sew obsessed said...

Yes please, great idea.
My mag I'm sending is in English but I don't mind what language I get one in, somewhere over than England would be great.
Thanks

I would love to be part of this. I will be sending English and will be happy to swap with anyone you choose...on second thought, I would probably own most of the USA ones.

Thanks for hosting this swap.

Oh, I'd love to join in again, Floss. The magazine I'll send will be in English, either an American or a Canadian magazine, and I'd love one back in French.

It was so much fun last time!

Lemonade and Lamingtons said...

I'd love to join in! I wouldn't mind a non-English language one; I'm happy enough looking at the pictures! I have magazines in English and German, the German ones are fairly easy to understand, they're pretty similar to UK Country Living.

Joy said...

Yes, Floss, I would love to participate this time. I'll send an English magazine from the U.S. and would love to receive an English magazine from anywhere else in the world.
Sounds fun!

Lexilooo said...

Oh this sounds so lovely! I will be sending out English magazines, but would love to receive something in another language, if possible. I'm fine with an English return too, though it might be good to learn some bits of another language, or practice some of what I already know! I'm happy to send anywhere in the world too!

Thank you!

Pondside said...

I'd like to try again - any magazine would be fine, in any language, and I'll send Canadian magazines. I took part last time, and received a lovely package, but the one that I sent, apparently never made it, although a trace showed that it had been delivered.

Paula said...

I've thoroughly enjoyed your blog. Please sign me up for the swap. I'm in the US and will send an English mag. I'm happy to receive a magazine in any language.
