cara box - box swap

Cara Box

kaitlyn over at wifessionals had a great idea for a monthly box swap between bloggers. i'll let her explain:

You will get paired up with another blogger, email back and forth to get to know each other, and will crazily stalk their blog...in the most non-creepy way. Towards the middle of the month you will create a box or package, specifically for the woman you were paired with, and ship it off to her & she will do the same for you.

It's like having a birthday 12 months of the year!

You can participate as much or as little as you choose. Need a pick me up this month? Come and join in! Don't have an extra dollar to spare right now? Come back whenever you want!

Since you are re-paired each month, you can come and go as you please (:


Who doesn't like getting surprises in the mail?
You can meet other great women
You can get encouragement (see below)
Get some blog exposure (see below)


1// Packages have a $15 limit
2// Make sure your box goes along with the theme. Get creative! Not everything has to be purchased. Get on Pinterest...find something awesome to make!!
3// Include 5+ items per box. Who wants to open a box with one item? Again, creativity!
4// Include a letter of encouragement. After getting to know the woman you are paired with and finding out about her life through her blog, make the effort to include a note of encouragement. This is not optional. It's great to get items that put a smile on your face, but kind words will last in your heart forever.
5// The last day of the month, create a blog post revealing your box and giving a shout out/link up to your match's blog. It's always nice to meet even more friends through the blogosphere.

This sounds like such a fun idea! Especially since this month's theme is "The Best of Fall." Obviously I cannot wait. I feel like she came up with this idea just for me ;) I already signed up, you should too! CLICK HERE and do it!

Thanks Kaitlyn!
