spread some happiness

Life is enriched by many things. 
Making new friends. 
Relishing small moments. 
Receiving an uplifting package in the mail. 
One of my favorite small moments is sipping a steaming cup of hot coffee, tea or cocoa from a cute mug. Over my almond milk latte this weekend, I decided to organize a mug swap to spread some happiness. Join me in meeting new friends and swapping mugs.

How it works.
This swap is open to all bloggers and instagrammers (in the US).
If you'd like to participate, just leave a comment on this post with your blog name or Instagram name AND your email address. The last day to sign up will be Oct 31st.

Swapping.
On Nov 1st, check back to find out who your swap buddy will be. After matches are posted, you will contact the person you're matched with, swap addresses and mail out your mugs.

Shopping. 
You can choose a cute, pretty, inspiring, or fun mug from one of your favorite stores. I've seen super cute mugs lately at Pier One, Anthropologie, Home Goods, Target, Etsy, and Starbucks. The mug must be new and something you'd like to receive. The max price you should spend on the mug is $15 but you can spend less. If you find a mug for less than $15, you can include a card, some treats or other small gifts in the package as well. 

Sharing.
On Nov 20th, I will host a link up where bloggers can share their mugs so we can see all of the happiness that was spread. For Instagrammers, you can post your new mug package images on IG using the hashtag #autumnmugswap

Why November 20th?
According to Bizarre and Unique holidays, it is a Beautiful Day. A day created to share in the beauty all around us. What a perfect day to share the happiness we received from a fellow blogger or instagrammer.

Please feel free to repost the mug swap graphic on your blog or Instagram (and link back here for details) to share this fun swap with your followers. They may want to spread the happiness and join in the fun.
