Local Flavors Swap: I'm In!

It has been almost 8 months since my last swap. 8 months! 8 months too long! I've been wanting to participate since I graduated college in May, but I get side tracked and forget to sign up. This time, I made sure I remembered to sign up; I even wrote the day in my planner! Swaps with Chaotic Goddess Swaps are always so organized and fun!

So... what's the Local Flavor Swap you ask? This is the first time I have ever participated in this, but pretty much I'll be assigned a partner and send her 5 or more items that are native or remind me of home-I'm from Oklahoma, so my partner will get things from my small hometown and things from Oklahoma. They'll in turn send me a package with 5 or more items from their home. Pretty cool right?

There's still time left to sign up too! I'll include all the important dates and a link to sign up if you're interested :)

It's time for the Local Flavor Swap!
