Here I Swap 2021


Happy five-year mug-swap-iversary! We made it to a milestone of mug swappery. High five for that. 

Now, I've got good news and bad news.

Let's rip off the band-aid. Bad news: Every year, there's a handful of ladies who sign up and, for whatever reason, don't end up sending a mug. This is bothersome to me. I know it's sad to the couple of ladies who don't get a mug. So, please, if there's a remote chance you'll forget, not follow through, or change your mind about this down the road, please X out of your browser now.

The good news: I'm still giving the swap a go this year, despite having four kids 5 and under, homeschooling, and trying to keep track of my dairy farming husband. It may not always be feasible, but for this year it is. So thank you for being understanding if I don't reply to a query or email super fast. I'm probably wiping up spilled milk or breaking up a squabble over who gets to wear the Davy Crockett coonskin hat first thing in the morning.

A few reminders on how this works:

 1. I'm going to pair you up with another Lutheran gal and send you both the information you'll need to know about one another (names and addresses, etc.).

2. Put together a little care package for her. Add as many goodies to the package as you'd like -- as long as it doesn't cost you more than $20.00 -- but you have to at least include a mug. (Thus . . . a mug swap.)

3. Stick that package in the mail! Sending an email to your swap buddy to let her know it's on its way won't hurt either.

4. Wait for your package to arrive. If you don't get it around the time it should arrive, send an email to your swap buddy and politely check in.

 If you're 21 or older, sign up by clicking this link and filling out the form. 

  • Sign-ups close October 3, and you'll receive information on your swap friend by October 23. (Yes. It may take me that long. I'm not getting any younger, people.)
  • Send the mug/package by November 10.
  • Post a picture of your swap package when it arrives. Use the hashtag #hereiswap2021 on Instagram, Facebook, or whatever socials you're currently digging.
  • Finally, I'm hoping this swap remains a helpful, joyful way for Lutheran women to encourage each other, but unfortunately, I can't be held responsible for your partner's actions. If she doesn't send you a package, feel free to follow up with her via email or tag her on Facebook. Let the Law do its work.
  • Now let's get swapping!
