My Vintage Heart Swap

I have been wanting to do a swap for awhile now and I think this one best fits me and my personality!

I am a february baby .... born February 27th!

Valentines day is one of my favorite holidays!

I am romantic at heart!

I love pink, red and white!!!!

I love hearts and anything heart shaped.

I collect heart shaped rocks and just about anything heart shaped that crys out to me!

When I think valentines day I think hearts, romance, roses, and chocolates!


Here is the swap scoop.....

You will be paired with one partner.....

for your partner you will fill a container with hearts

The container can be of your choice, store bought or handmade...

ideas... heart shaped basket, bowl, box, stocking, bucket, etc
Fill it with anything with hearts on it or heart shaped!

examples, hankys, chocolates, vintage valentines, note pads, plate, bowl, candy dish, linens, laces, ribbon, scrapbooking goodies, candles, soaps, confetti, stickers, barrettes, etc.

My five simple requests are...

1. keep the color scheme pink, red and white

2. include at least one vintage heart item

3. all of the items have to be heart shaped or have hearts on them!

4. make sure your partner receives their goodies before valentines day February 14th!

5. please please please communicate with your partner!

I am suprised how many swaps I have done and not had my partner even say hi!

If you are interested.... email me your name, addy, and blog link,

also let me know what your style is... vintage, shabby chic, retro or I'm not fussy!

sign ups taken until january 9th,

I will send you your partner the 10th,

and your Fill my Vintage Heart Swap goodies should be sent by February 4th!

Please don't sign up unless you can commit to following thru...

I don't want anyone disappointed!

International friends you are very welcome to join!

Lets start 2008 with a fun loving heart filled swap!

Hugz, Dolly
P.S. I would love it if you copy and post the swap picture at the right on your blog!
Let's spread the word!
Thank You
I did'nt set a price limit but I'd suggest between $15 and $20...
use your best judgement.... give your partner things you would love to receive!
You can even make everything... which is always fun!

IMPORTANT NOTE>>>>> Please....don't just leave a coment here to join...YOU MUST email me your snail mail addy and link to your blog so your partner has a way to contact you!
A few of yous left comments but I cannot get into your blog to ask for your address so I cannot include you until I have that info!
Also... YES.. you can join even if you don't have a blog!
