summer shenanigans

This is the third year doing Shades of Summer & I'm thrilled to do it again. SOS started the summer that Quincey was born. I knew I wouldn't be traveling much so we thought it would be fun to send around 20 traveling sunglasses as a way to connect with you awesome blog readers!

**Edited** Thanks ladies for signing up! We hit our quota :)

Want to join in on the shenanigans?
Here's the dealio:
1. You can't be moving this summer (because the package gets lots or doesn't get forwarded) or traveling extensively.
2. First, you take a photo wearing the sunglasses and email it to me.
3. Second, you will ship a small box with the sunglasses in it to the next person on the list I'll include in the box.
4. You must ship glasses & list of addresses with in 2 days of receiving them.

•The first 300 peeps to email me are included in all the fun.
•If you can follow the above rules email me at ShadesofSummer@gmail.com.
•US only but if you are in Western Europe and want to play along email Kristin Reinhard at ShadesofSummerEurope@gmail.com
•If you want to host an SOS outside of the US email me at ShadesofSummer@gmail.com and I'll tell you how it works.

I hope this year the sunglasses don't get stuck anywhere or lost because it's quite exciting to see them travel around and get to know you ladies... even in this small, silly way.

Remember I posted the giveaway winners and 300 dpi free kit below.

I won't be play along this year, as I have tried twice in the past years, glasses never made their way to me. I hope when everyone signs up that they really do follow the rules and keep the glasses going because it's no fun wanting to play and can't because some don't keep them moving.

Never received the glasses last Summer but I'm TOTALLY game again this year! Should be fun!! I am already making a list of some fun places I can go :)

Deborah said...

I would love to join in, it sounds like fun. I'm having a baby in 3 weeks so I won't be doing much traveling this summer.

Laci J said...

You've got to be kidding me! Last night I saw you posted that SOS would be up next, so I kept refreshing the page all night so I could be the first person to do it. Then I had to go to bed and when I wake up this morning you've already reached your quota! How rediculous! Hope you ladies that got in take full advantage of it!

Rachel said...

Bummer I wanted to take part this year. Especially since my son and daughter are really into glasses/sunglasses. I had some fun photo ideas. Oh well I guess next year!

julie said...

So sad that I missed it. Didn't have internet access most of the day. :( Oh well! Hope it's a blast!

Add me to the list of those that signed up 2 years and didn't get one, even though I was told I was on the list! :(

Samantha said...

Oh man! I'm so sad I missed this! I was working and just checked reader and the quota is already met! Apparently it's popular!!! Haha. If you open it again, I definitely want in! :-)

ange said...

Jocelyn said...

I am sooooooo sad I missed out on signing up for this. I have been on the list the past 2 years and never got them:-( I was hoping this would be the magic year. I guess I will have to wait until next year!
