The Bloggerhood of the Travelling Scarf

Last night while I was finishing up some pending documents at work.  I was also busy checking my phone for any twitter updates.  While I was resting my head waiting for my medz to sink in, I decided to tweet about having a Sisterhood/Bloggerhood of the Travelling ___ ( shirt, pants, shoes and etc.)  I was delighted when I received a fun tweet from two lovable bloggers. Madison  and Yvonne, they responded with a delightful YES!  We then exchanged ideas and decided to start something fun and cool.

So what is this all about?

The first person who will receive the scarf first will have to incorporate and wear the scarf making it as their own.  Make a post about their experience or how it affected their day.  Was there a certain magic or luck with the scarf?  Or did they feel anything special while wearing it?  Make a story and share it with us.  After each post the person will then send the scarf to the next person on the list.

How long will we keep the scarf?

Keep the scarf for 1-2 weeks and send it to the next postal address.  As an added amazing gesture, when giving it to the next person you may put a letter, post card or any souvenir that signifies where the scarf came from.  And this will become a cycle for everyone who wants to join.

Imagine the scarf travelling around the world, wouldn’t it be so cool?  I hope everyone is as enthusiastic as I am.  All you have to do is share the experience, keep the scarf for two weeks and pay for the shipping to the next person.  Counting on the standard shipping days, I believe that this cycle will end for a year or even until next year.

The Bloggerhood badge is still in progress, but once everything is all set we will then set the first scarf adventure.

This idea will become a fun challenge and adventure for everyone.  I have prepared a form for everyone who wants to participate in this journey.  EVERYONE in all parts of the globe is welcome to fill out their names and blog name and necessary information.  Please do so on or before May 20, 2011 so that we can start and pick the first person who will receive the Travelling Scarf.

  1. I’m in! I’ve actually been wanting to do this with one of my pieces of jewelry! I always wanted to know how others bloggers would accessorize it since we all have different styles, but never got around to officially planning it. I’d even offer up a piece from my emergy line (a necklace) to travel around the globe🙂

  2. oooooh i’d like to be part of this! but i’ll be changing addresses soon.. ill fill in all the details once im settled in my new flat.🙂

  3. I do have a “sisterhood of traveling slippers” and the slippers have traveled to different parts of asia and europe. it’s been on for about 2 years now. we do have a different rule (stories form part of our secrets, haha!) but it’s fun.🙂 in fact, i also have this sisterhood of traveling bag on the works with different set of friends but we have yet to find that perfect bag!😀

    good luck on this one and i can’t wait to read everyone’s post! if only the scarf can write her own story, it would be great!!haha😉

  4. Yikes! Sorry, Sweet…I mistakenly put my comment in the form. It’s definitely a Monday. I love the idea, though I’m not able to participate. I am looking forward to seeing the scarf pop up on my fave blogs, though!

  5. I just saw one of these posts on Ms. Eggplant’s Chronicles and absolutely love this idea! Hopefully it’s not too late to join! I just added my info to the form. Thanks for putting this fun adventure together!
