Mix Share Swap Vol. 2

I've been receiving a handful of emails lately asking if there might be a second coming of the mix swap I put together last year, so I present to you - the Mix Share Swap Vol. 2. Last year there were 70 participants and I had some lovely feedback and had so much fun putting it together.

The swap:
Each participant makes two mix cds and sends them to two different people, thus you will receive two mix cds in return.
Cds should contain at least 10 songs and include a track listing.
The people you send to are not necessarily the people you will receive a mix from.
Mixes can be themed if you like (e.g. songs by artists from your country, songs from your favourite movie soundtracks, songs that make you happy, songs with colours in the title, etc).
Decorate the packaging in whichever way takes your fancy. Just make sure the cd is safe and won't be easily damaged in transit. You will mail your mixes to their recipients.
This swap is international and anyone can participate, regardless of location, music taste or whether or not you have a blog.
If I've left anything out or if you have any questions feel free to send me an email: bianca (at) goodnightlittlespoon.com.
Sign ups for the swap will close on Saturday the 25th of June, I will email you the details of your partners soon afterwards and then you will have two weeks to put together and send off your mixes (9th July).

Below are pictures of some of the mixes that were sent and received last year. There are also some Flickr galleries & groups to browse from for decoration inspiration here (1|2|3). As you make and receive your mixes you're welcome to upload pictures of them here.

  16. I just signed up, brilliant!!! Can't wait to start the swap!!! I posted it at my blog and facebook but I have a question...do we have to send the two cd's to the same person?

  17. You know... I think I'm gonna have to jump in this time!

  18. Yes I am so excited to be part of this one again. I think one of the CD's that was suppose to make it to me last time got lost.
