This looked like so much fun, I just signed up!
This is the idea: you get the name + address of your partner assigned (you can indicate if you want it to be someone from your own country or international) and you have to keep this a secret (until the given deadline). You get a list of 10 things and have to create 5 of them and buy 1. You put all of that in a package and send it. You can’t reveal who you are! After the deadline you blog about it and you can see who had you. This is a one time thing.
The things on the list aren’t expensive, they’re suppose to be found or handmade.
A few examples from last years list:
- the City Explorer's Kit: take a day off and collect little things of your city for your partner. Can include, but not limited to: maps, flowers & leaves, postcards, tiny souvenirs, photos, interesting newspaper's clippings & pamphlets, etc - just don't grab a bunch of random junk within arm's reach, put some effort in it.
- Something that represent you: for example - are you an artist? Send your partner a little painting. Do you love to knit? Send your partner a hat.. and so on.
- Something not square or rectangular.
- Something seasonal.
Sounds like fun, right? You can sign up till 23.12.2013
