A Simple Summer Swap

This is how it works.

As the title says 'A SIMPLE Summer Swap' - so keep it simple - a summer dress for the girls, or a shorts & t shirt for the boys - you can add a pair of swim shorts, bathing costume, some summer accessories - whether a hat, beach play toys etc...as you wish.

Sign up for the swap by 31st May 2013 - sending me your name and address details and whether you would like something for a boy or a girl.

Swap partners announced 1st June 2013

Post your swap by 30th June 2013

If you have any questions, please contact me and ask and remember most importantly…HAVE FUN!

SWAP PARTNERS ALLOCATED - You should all receive an email from me by 1st June 2013 with your swap partner's details.  If you don't receive the email please let me know.  Any other problems or queries please also let me know.  If you want to change partners for any reason (eg...you may have swapped with them before and want to swap with someone different, please also let me know asap)  To make it 'Simple' I have tried to pair UK to UK and US to US, but there was an odd number.  Hope this suits everyone.
