an international goody swap!

I Love It All is going international...all the way to France, baby! Well, actually, I have quite a few international readers, and any and all are welcome to play along with this super fun project, no matter what country you are from as long as you are willing to ship your package of goodies to France.

Here''s a peek of what I'll be sending to a lovely French pretty paper lover. 3 Guest Checks, 10 library cards, 10 small metal-rimmed tags, 100 piece embellishment collection, 1 muslin bag and 10 shipping tags all packaged inside a metal-hinged tin. The tin is embellished with a map belly band and a book page flower. I hope she loves it all.


And now here's a peek at what one of you might have a chance to call it your own! That's right, this goody from Sophie or one of many others from France...and here's how it will happen.


Readers of I Love It All will leave a comment with your blog address on this post, or just contact me and I'll add you to the swap list if you don't blog, and Sophie will match you up with a French craft goddess who wants to swap goodies. You'll package up your goodies and ship them off to France while the person you're matched up with will ship your goodies from France all the way to the good 'ole USA.

Sophie {my German 2nd cousin has the same name and pronounces her name So-phie, but I'll have to ask Sophie how the French enunciate her name, won't I?}...anyway, Sophie is the author of several blogs...one in French and this one in English. Click on the links and find out just how amazing she is. French, English, she does it all and she's the brainstorm behind this cool idea.

You'll want to remember shipping costs when you choose your items. As you can see from the photos we've shared, we have lots of fun little items, they are just lightweight in nature. Imagination is key and highly encouraged.

So, let the fun begin! You have until October 4th to sign up when partners will be matched up.

  21. Hi Monika,
    Please count me in!
    I'm going to Paris the week of October 17th, and would love to deliver my goodies personally!
    It would be fantastic to meet a like minded spirit over a cup of cafe in Paris.
    Thanks for doing this!
    I can't wait, and will also email Sophie.
    All the best,
    Vicki
