You're Late For a Very Important Date...Uh, I Mean Swap!

Welcome one and all to an exciting new development in the World of Wonderland!

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland is hitting theaters on March 5th and what better way to celebrate the release than with glitter, glue, paper, fabric, stamps (pick your creative poison) and of course...tea! :)


Huzzah! I am hosting a Wonderland themed craft swap and sign ups are now open! I'm so excited to see the newest version of this magical story and I'm hoping I'm not alone! lol This swap is a chance for you to share your fabulous little creations with someone else and it's all about Wonderland!

You will be paired with a swap buddy and send them a box of Wonderland themed creations. You can use people, places or things from the story, that is entirely up to you. You can make jewelry, ATCs, layouts, cards, altered art, boxes, bags, frames, crowns, jars, whatever Wonderland inspires you to make - the possibilities are endless! Just make sure that the box contains things you yourself would like to get, put your best artistic foot forward! You could even include crafty supplies or maybe some treats such as *ahem* chocolate. (Just no potions or cookies that make you a giant or shrink you smaller than a flower please. ;)

The Details:

-This is open to everyone, everywhere! U.S., outside of the U.S., on the moon if that's where you live. :) Please let me know if you are willing to ship outside of your country. If you are not, that is okay, I just need to know how to pair people.

-In order to participate in the swap, you MUST complete the following questionnaire:

Mailing Address:
Blog Address:
Favorite Wonderland Character:
Are you willing to ship internationally (yes/no):

Then e-mail it to me at justaddglitter at gmail.com by Midnight on Sunday, February 7th.

-I will pair everyone up and you will receive your partner's information by Midnight on Monday, February 8th. Please take time to visit your partner's blog. This could help you decide what to create for them and it's a great way to get to know other creative bloggers like yourself!

-Your box should include handmade items with a Wonderland theme. This is open to artistic interpretation and can be any thing based on any version of the story HOWEVER it must be your best work. Make sure to send things that you are proud to share with another person. Feel free to also include crafty type supplies and edible treats.

-You will mail your box by Friday, March 5th. This is the release date of the movie and what better way to celebrate than to have Boxes of Wonder zipping all over the world!

-Once you receive your box, please take a picture of the goodies inside and post it to your blog so we can all see! I will also have a Flickr group ready to post your pictures there if you prefer.

-If you would like to ask questions before signing up, please feel free to e-mail me anytime (before the deadline!) at justaddglitter at gmail.com.

Here's a little button, feel free to grab the code and display it on your blog!


I hope that you will sign up and join us, this is going to be a great swap!

And now I leave you with a little peek into the film:

Remember, in order to sign up, please e-mail me your completed questionnaire by Midnight on Sunday, February 7th. Don't be late or it's off with your head! :D

I am so excited about Alice in Wonderland that it was my initial must feel well by date. It's going to be ridiculously awesome. (How's that for too high expectations?)

Sadly I don't think I'll be well enough to do my very best work during this swap *sob* so I won't be able to sign up. That said, are you planing on doing any other swaps this year? Because as soon as I'm in the pink I'll be signed up lickety-split.

Have fun!

What a neat idea for a swap! The whole Alice in Wonderland story just trips me out, but I MAY be convinced to see it because of Johnny Depp!!! ;)
