This month (as most of you know) I decided to switch things up. I tried as best I could to pair you all by state. I thought this would give you the chance to maybe have some blates with each other!!!
*Girls with only themselves in the state or girls who didn't provide their state were paired together
*Girls in countries outside the US were paired within their country
*Girls in the US who do not have blogs were paired together
If you are in a state where there is only two of you, you will notice that you are sending to each other. All other girls will have two partners. Who you send to IS NOT who will be sending to you.
To easily figure this out, you will go to the tab in the excel sheet that pertains to you and find YOUR EMAIL in the "your email" column. Then look next to your email in the "who you are sending to" column. That is who you send a box to. To find who is ending to you, locate your email in the right hand column and look at them email to your left.
Feel free to email any of the girls in your state to see if you live near each other! I just couldn't get any more detailed than the state because this was already a lot of extra work. If any of you guys meet up, I would love you to include pictures in your post at the end of the month!!!
READ THESE RULES:
1// You have 72 hours from the timestamp on this post to contact your partners. If you have not heard from them by Friday night, email me Saturday morning ASAP so I can get you a new partner!! Please do not email me before that time. Even if it is the partner sending to you, you need to make every effort to get into contact with BOTH your partners by Friday so I son't have to chase 100 girls down.
2// Your packages should be of at least a $15 value. Last month some girls sent boxes that had 3-4 items and honestly cost them $5 max. That is not fair to your partner. Also, an encouraging note is MANDATORY. If you do not include a note, you can no longer participate in future months. This also happened last month.
3// If you cannot meet up in person, your boxes must be shipped by 2/20. If they are not, you will have to be excluded in future months. It is not fair that your partner won't get to participate in the link up at the end of the month.
4// Participating in the link up at the end of the month is mandatory as well if you have a blog. Your partner would love to see the box they made you. If you do not post and link up to the main post at the end of the month, you cannot participate in future months.
I am sorry if these rules seem mean or harsh, but I have been very lenient on them for the past few months. Too many girls are getting screwed over or getting the poor end of the deal, so from now on, these are the rules and unless it is an extreme situation, if you do not follow them you, can't participate in Cara Box in the future.
This month's theme and more details on the swap can be found here.
To get your matches:
1// Download the Excel File
2// The first 4 tabs are all of the participants (Name, Email, Blog URL)
3// The tabs after the first 4 are the matches. If you can't find your state tab, you are on the Single State tab.
4// Once you locate your matches' email, go to the first 4 tabs to get the rest of their information.
