Double Swap
Wednesday, March 11, 2009
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuh

Thank you to all the sisters who never fail to remind me "it's time for another swap!" I'm going to be a little selfish here, and combine my two loves for this swap. Reading and creating. Suprisingly, it's something I noticed a lot of my readers like as well... so here it is:



Details of swap: This is a two part swap.
1) You will send your favourite book (this can range from a childhood story to whatever you enjoy reading now - Religious/Craft/ Mystery/ - anything) to your swap partner.
2) Once you receive your swap partner's favourite book, you'll read it, and send her a gift that reflects what you just read. Use your imagination, and have fun with it. It can be bought or handmade.

Participants allowed: International. I will email you in back if you qualify to join this swap.

Ages allowed: All ages.

Cost Limit: None.

Rules:
1) Sent out book - email me and your swap partner.
1a) Received book - email me and your swap partner.
2) Sent out gift - email me and your swap partner.
2b) Received gift - email me and your swap partner.
2c) Blog about it - email me the url: so I can make a list of them (if you don't have a blog.. we'll figure something out)

Sign up due date: Friday, March 20, 2009
Partners will be emailed to you on: Saturday, March 21, 2009

    Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dearest Farhana!
    I have been on a bit of a net 'diet' LOL! Always such a nice stop clicking here...and to see another swap even more so...and such an inventive one, Masha'Allah.
    Please include me in, with Du'a that the post behaves. Insha'Allah two items to be sent and two to receive does not confuse them here!
    May your rewards be piling high, Ameen!
    Wassalamu alaikum

    Yuppers.. two to send, two to receive..haha :D Insha'Allah everything runs smoothly.

    Assalamualaikum dear sister Farhana,

    Funny you should mention this ...

    "from so many different parts of the globe!"

    cos' I'm just wondering where these wonderful sisters are from! :)

    And do send me your address as well. It's not really fair that you have mine but I haven't gotten yours. :P Why, one of these days you might just appear in my front porch! LoL!

    Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sisters,

    Hey Hijabi, I see lil' Zach is still not aware he has to share you!!! :D And I am very excited you'll be joining us for another swap. Haha.. I totally hear you, I have no idea what book I'm going to send. I should have thought about this before I went and put up a swap..hehe

    Hajar!... look at this lovely list, we have someone from Malaysia (I wonder who), from Canada (ha..), the States, Singapore, Saudi, UK.. :D it's a beautiful list I tell you.

    Hahaha.. the only way I'm giving you my address is if you promise to come visit me. :P And really Hajar, don't be surprised if I show up at your door. One day (when I'm rich) I'm planning a trip to Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia :D

    Lots of Love
    Farhana
