let's mix it up













M   I   X       C   D       G   I   V   E   A   W   A   Y


Every year I have my favorite ladies over for a mix cd swap. Everyone makes a mix, a copy for each guest. We all take one from each pile, and then leave with a handful of new tunes! Brilliant, right?

This year I had a few of the cd's left from people who made too many. And one of you readers could be the lucky recipient of 6 rad mix's (pictured above). Made by : Claire, Jessie, Kelly, Cheri, Nina and myself. And let me tell you... you want these mix's... they are amazing!

Just leave a comment with your name, and the title and artist of your favorite song of all time. 
You have until 11:59 pm the night of January 25th, when I will choose one lucky name at random. 
(on the 26th i will email you for your address. i only ship within the US, sorry)
