It's time to start achieving our new year's resolutions! I've found out this swap, because maybe we have difficulties with this. And it becomes harder as the time goes. How about helping each other to reach our goals?

I hope it will be a fun swap. A real challenge :) You have to make/compose a "survival kit" like thing. Please, make a nice package with stuffs, goodies, supplies etc. what all will help to your partner to reach her/his new year's goal. If you don't have any new year's resolutions, you can participate in, if one of your family members has it, and you want to help him/her!

For example, if your partner wants to give up smoking, you can add to this kit bubblegums (special or not), book about healthy life, encouraging quotes...OR if he/she wants to loose weight, you can add muesli bars, magazines about weigh lossing, diet tips and recipes what had once worked...

I think it is more about creativity, not about money. Don't spend more than 10$ on your kit (but the minimum value is 8$) - before shipping!

Other RULES:

  • put at least 5 items in your kit (if you buy something what is really nice, but you already spent the money on it, it's OK, but please, add some more little things what are around you, because it's has to be a kit somehow)

  • among the items maximum one should be handmade (if you want, it is not a requirement, but creativity is always welcomed)

  • one item must has to be a funny thing what is related to your partner's bad habit or his/her goal (more also OK)

  • you must have to add a greeting card with some encouraging words to your partner (the card could be handmade)

  • you can write a letter about your experienced story, if you (or someone from your family) were in the same shoes with your partner (please speak about your setbacks, your succes, what was really helpful, what wasn't. Notice, the letter is not a requirement, but it is something what your partner may appreciate and it helps you to get a good "kit making mood" while you're writing it :))

  • please put all the stuff in a box(or in a bag) and decorate it (or you can create a holder for your kit yourself)

  • send in time, don't flake!!!

TO JOIN: - you must have 10 rated type 3 swaps behind - maintain a good rating (above 4.8) - no recent 1's or 3's

I will check profiles, Don't join, if you don't want to put your heart and effort in this swap. These are requirements! :)

Please, list below your resolution/goal, let your partner know what kind of kit has to make.

PS: English is not my native language, feel free to notice me, if I wrote something not really sounds English or I mispelled words.

I would like to get a "Quit Smoking Kit" for my husband. His name is Laszlo if you would write a letter to him.

This sounds so fun! :) im so excited!

I would love to get a "quit procrastinating" kit! Its my terrible habit and its my new years resolution to stop :)

Love this idea. I have two major goals for the year, so a kit about either one would be great. My theme for the year is "Get Moving!" and relates to both of them.

  • rewrite/revise my mystery novel manuscript. So far (28 days into the new year, I haven't done much). So I guess I'd call this a "novelist's motivation kit"


  • physical fitness via walking/exercise. This would be an "exercise/fitness kit."

Hmmm. I think some go new year motivator kits could be:

Fitness/heathly food like kit.

Home improvement/space saver idea kit.

Time management kit.

These are things I'm focusing on this year. I hope I get to do all three! I love this idea. :)

Hi There This is a really fun swap. The start of a new year is a chance for us to do good, to do better or to change things that did not go well in the past year. So these are my major resolutions for this year. Number one is lose weight. Second is pick up a new hobby: the cake crafting (I love baking and decorate).
Have a wonderful 2012 at all.

A New Year's kit is en route to my partner coming from the U.S. and headed to Hungary. It was mailed international first class. Enjoy!
