right this second…

I hope:
you’ll join the in the moment mixed tape {cd} swap! I’ve been so busy with work today, I apologize for getting this out a little late. but…here it is!

in the moment:
when making a mixed cd, it’s all about being in the moment. whether it’s simply the songs you can’t get out of your head, or you’re going out dancing, studying for a big test, cooking dinner at home with your sweetheart, or taking a long road trip across the country. what’s your in the moment music? what are you into, right this second? what inspires you to make a new mix?

the plan:
since getting new music is always fun, and lots of people have different tastes, lets mix it up for two people. you’ll be sent information for two different swappers to send a mix to. the mix can either be the same, or send each partner a different mix.

sign up:
email me your details – alyson{dot}jg{at}gmail{dot}com
• your name
• mailing address
• email address
• website or blog, {you must have one of the two}
• a little bit about your musical taste
• will you ship internationally?

sign-up by Friday, November 30.
mixes must be mailed out no later than Monday, December 10.

and lastly:
{I know that this time of year can be ultra busy for most of you, so this last thing is totally optional.}
• give your mix a title – think about what inspired you to create your in the moment mix.
• design a cover for your mixes – be creative. be simple and effective. let’s see how your creative mind works while in the moment.

let me know if you have any questions/concerns.
and, please feel free spread the word. I’ve added a side bar button, if you’d like me to email this to you, please let me know. otherwise, feel free to copy it to your desktop for use on your own blog.

happy mixing!

    hi Sarah U, I’m glad you’d like to participate! the instructions state that you must have a blog or a website, these swaps are a good way for other bloggers to get to know eachother. BUT….I’ll keep you posted, and if anything, you can sign up, and I’ll swap with you. the more the merrier, right? :)
