New Zealand celebrates our national day every February 6 called Waitangi Day. Waitangi Day is based on our founding document/ Treaty signed Feb. 6, 1840.
It means a lot of different things to different people - can be contentious and I don't think we are that patriotic after spending several Australia Days in Australia. (that blew me away both times!)
Let's have a swap based on the country we live in. The aim is to send 5 things that symbolise the country you live in / were born in.
Some ideas include-
Something to eat
something hand made by you that represents your country
a tourist nick nack like a fridge magnet, keyring
a stationery item ie notecards,postcards, a pen, pencils
a souvenir tea towel
an item made in your country (ie a book written by a local author, wool, kitchen items - craft fairs are good for this. Is there a designer that has little things? ie Cath Kidston etc...)
Sign up is by February 9 (a long lead time). I will post the swap partners on the weekend of February 14-15. It is up to you to contact your partner and exchange addresses. Please make sure you can be contacted via your blog.
Swaps are to be sent by March 15. That should give everyone enough time to get organised!
Please leave me a comment if interested and state if you are happy to post internationally or only in your home country. ( I will do my absolute best with this).
