THE CARD SWAP IS NOW CLOSED!
Its November, so you know what that means….time to sign up for the SIXTH annual holiday card swap!
In true card swap tradition, I asked a talented designer to design the logo for this years card swap, so a HUGE thank you to Erin Jang of The Indigo Bunting! I’m so jealous of her mad graphics skills so I’m thrilled she was able to do this years logo!
Here are the rules:
Send an email to me at brooklynbride [at] gmail [dot] com with Holiday Card Swap in the subject line by November 21 [day before Thanksgiving]. Include your name, address, email address, website/blog address and twitter handle [if you have these]. Please send your email in this format…
123 Main St. #25
Anytown NY 12345
– By December 1, I will have emailed you the names and addresses of up to 5 people to send cards to.
– Your cards must be handmade or self-designed [think Gocco, glitter, Photoshop, cut + paste, sewing, etc….] Make something that’s easy to do multiples of. You’ll be sending 1 card to each person on your list, and add in a special holiday greeting!
– Send out your cards by December 15 at the latest! Easy peezy!
Wait patiently by your mailbox! The swap is open to our international audience, so pay special attention to postage. Please don’t disappoint your partners if you know you won’t be able to send out cards on time, or at all.

Sorry for the delay in announcing the Minted winners last week….I was in San Francisco for a wedding and didn’t have a chance to pick, so here they are! Congrats! We’ll be passing your emails along to Minted.

Thank you so much for everyone taking the time to answer my survey questions! I’ve read through them all and there’s been some really great feedback that I hope to incorporate in the future!
Since I failed to ask for your names in addition to email addresses for the prize, looks like I’m just going to have to email the winner, so check your inboxes!
Thanks again! It really means the world to me!

Congrats Gavi, you won the Oh Snap! Smile photobooth! We’ll be in touch.
Every year on my birthday I ask you lovely readers to let me know what you think of Brooklyn Bride through my annual reader survey….well this year, my birthday fell on a Friday, so I’ve pushed the survey to today. I’d really love if you could take a couple of minutes to fill it out….I think its pretty painless and will really help me figure out how I’m doing.
I know surveys can kinda be a pain, so I’m hoping to sweeten the deal by giving 1 survey taker a set of Confetti System for West Elm goodies worth about $150! (I’ve already got a bunch of the ornaments and LOVE them!)
You’ll be receiving:
5 paper ornaments
4 glass ornaments
2 twist trees
and 1 garland
Take the survey here. It will stay up for a week and the winner will be announced next Monday, the 22nd.
Thanks so much!
