Trick or Treat


It's time to get started on our Halloween Joli Paquet! I'm so excited and hope that you all are as well. I've been hearing what all of the artists have in store for you this season and it's going to be fabulous.
Tutorials will start next week, and new tutorials will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays leading us up to Halloween. You will be able to preview the kits on Wednesday, September 30th, and will go on sale on October 2nd. We wanted to make sure we got the kits done early so that you have plenty of time to craft before Halloween.
And starting now, you can join our Trick or Treat swap! This is the first Joli Paquet swap, and we're all very excited to be hosting this.
The details of the swap are as follows:
You will create an adult style "Trick or Treat" bag for your partner and then fill that bag with treats. The bag should be a standard tote bag size and you're welcome to either create it from scratch or purchase a tote bag from any craft store and embellish it in the style that will make your partner swoon. Fill it with her favorite candy treats, crafting treats, decorating treats, or anything you think she will adore. Please try to make the entire package have a value of $20-$25.
Sound fun?
All you need to do is leave a message here including a link to your blog and your email letting us know you would like to participate.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at cerri at thelittlepinkstudio dot com.
*Unfortunately, because of the time constraints I will have to make this swap for US participants only. I'm sorry about that!! Next time I will try to get the swap going sooner so that our international friends can participate.
Sign up for the swap until Wed. the 23rd. Packages are to be in the mail by October 17th so that your partner will have plenty of time to enjoy her treats!
Please feel free to grab the ultra adorable blog button that Cindy created for us to show you're participating in the swap!
See you next Tuesday for our first Halloween tutorial!

EDITED TO ADD (9/24/09) Swap signups are now closed. Thanks so much for signing up!

Ooo, Ooo . . . count me in! I'd love to swap goodies with some creative, talented lady who visits Joli Paquet!!! My blog, however, is in it's super infancy - I'm still tweaking it. Which is hard since I'm not the most computer savvy person out there! But I'm trying (any suggestions/hints/ideas from anyone are greatly welcomed!). Thanks for arranging the swap. And I can't wait for the fun projects to begin!
