Cookie Swap Sign-up Deadline


Just a quick note that since I’ll be gone today for a baby shower and won’t be able to start doing matches until tomorrow, I’m extending the sign-up deadline for the cookie swap until tomorrow morning.  Last chance–click here for all the details.  I will be working on the matches Sunday and sending them out later in the evening.  That is all, enjoy your weekend!

P.S. OK, I’m not done.  I’m dying over all the UPS ads that have been featured on my blog lately through the Wordads program. (Is that ad below my video a UPS video right now? It was when I scheduled this post!)  Come on USPS, get on this Wordads thing! I feel like I’ve sold my soul to the competition. lol To counteract these ads, I’m going to post one of my own for the patriarch of mail delivery, the US Postal Service. Take that UPS!  (I’m not biased at all.)  Please watch it and learn about how to use Click ‘n Ship, a great way to ship your cookies (and other packages) without having to leave your home! It even saves you money (you get discounts on priority & express shipping, plus free delivery confirmation), so check it out.

Are you ready for a cookie swap?

Posted on

Last year after I found out about the fabulous Great Blogger Cookie Swap, I organized one for all those that didn’t have blogs but still wanted to participate in a nation-wide cookie swap.  Well we’re back in business, kids!  If you’re a blogger, you can head on over to Love and Olive Oil or The Little Kitchen to get all the details and sign up, but if you’re a non-blogger that would like to participate in a cookie swap, you’ve come to the right place.

This swap will work like last year’s for the most part, and here’s the breakdown:  Sign up.  Get matched to three other participants.  Ship a dozen delicious cookies to each.  Receive a dozen scrum-diddly-upmtious cookies from each of your matches in return.  That’s a whole lotta deliciousness and love being spread throughout the US!

As before, the purpose of my swap is not only to spread joy and cheer through the sharing of cookies, but to support the US Postal Service.  (If you’re new to my blog, I work for the postal service as a data conversion operator at one of the only two remaining Remote Encoding Centers.  Basically that’s a glorified title that means I type a lot.  I started The Postcard Project to renew excitement about mailing postcards and letters, and supporting the postal service in general.)  Last year The Great Blogger Cookie Swap generated 1,640 packages of cookies, which ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at when it comes to revenue for the postal service.  The Postcard Project Cookie Swap generated 162 extra dozen shipped, which I’m pretty proud of, and I thank all of you who spread the cookie love with me last year.
