I have never participated in a swap before (except I organized a Fall Clothing Swap a few years ago and that was a huge success if I do say so and a ton of fun), but I must tell you, after receiving the postcard from The Farmer's Wife, I know I am going to be ecstatic with this Autumn Swap. I have already sent Sofia an email with my intentions to jump in. I found out about it from Pia and I can't wait to find out who I will be buddied up with. Could be you? Oui?
