Pretty Things Jar Swap

Hey to you all, City Crafter Challenge Blog followers and regulars, we now have a place to get together and have some fun! Here at City Crafter Party Blog, is a place for Blog Hop, and do a little swap, you know, just the fun stuff!

We are going to kick off our Party Place with a little swap, here's the details.....
Pretty Things Jar Swap
This swap is open to all active bloggers, you don't have to be a follower of City Crafter to have fun with us
Here is what you have to do, filled up a jar (any size, any kind) with lovely little things a crafter would like,  e.g. buttons, charms, do-dads, embellies, ribbons, threads etc, and exchange with another blogger (who wouldn't like receiving a surprise in the mail?)

Step 1: Sign up
Send me an email (see info at the end of this blog post), and I will count you in for this Jar Swap, this will open from Tuesday July 27 (12 AM EST) to Monday August 2nd (11:59 PM EST), you have ONE week to just send an email if you want to participate.

Step 2: Filled up your jar with pretty things
You will be paired up with a swap partner and I will send you an email to confirm your participation and also the information (email address) of your partner by August 5th.

**Edit: I personally love glass jar because I think it is beautiful, but I do understand the cost of postage, if you want to do plastic jar, plastic container, or even a box, that is perfectly fine, the fun part is to received something in the mail, especially Pretty Things right?

Step 3: Send out the Jar 
You can start sending out your jar from August 6th to August 21st. That will give you 2 weeks to get your package out to your partner in time for the party.

Now we waited, and waited and waited..... for our Jar filled with pretty things to arrive.
Let's do 2 weeks (at least), that should be safe.
**Note - Just in case you are paired up with a International Partner, please do send your jar as early as possible, I do not want to see anyone miss out the fun at the party. I think it is fun to have overseas friend, who knows, you might visit them someday.

Step 4: Post your Jar on your blog
This should be done as close to the party time as possible, but there is no restriction, I just want to make sure your posting for the Blog Party is easy to locate. I will have Inlinkz here on this blog, you could link up so everyone could visit you and see what you got in your jar from your swap partner. Inlinkz will be open for you to link your blog post from September 2nd to 8th (I know its labor day weekend, so I give you plenty of time here)

Step 5: The most exciting part - Blog Party
September 7th (Tuesday) 9 PM - 11 PM (EST)
(There is not restriction, you can still visit other blogger whenever you are here.
