Lets do it again....

******The swap is now closed******
We have done it again girls... we have 100 participants again this year!
There are 100 of you heart crazy swapping sweeties!
A HUGE Thank You to everyone who joined...
I will gather and assign partners in the next few days!
I was away from my computer this week due to an emergency trip downstate {mother in law was admitted into the hospital} all is well with her for now!
Thank you all who have been patiently waiting to hear from me and those who sent well wishes!
I love you girls!






I had so much fun with last years Vintage Heart Swap I have decided to host it every year!
And it was a huge success... over 100 of you wonderful friends signed up
Let's do it again girls.....

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 in pinks, white or red!

examples, hankys, chocolates, vintage valentines, note pads, plate, bowl, candy dish, linens, laces, ribbon, scrap booking 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 communicate with your partner!



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

Answer these questions for your partner.....
what your style is... vintage, shabby chic, retro or I'm not fussy!
anything you really like or really dis-like?
favorite candy
favorite scent
favorite flower

sign ups taken until january 8th,

I will send you your partner the 11th,

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

Please email me... if you don't get an email back from me then you are not officialy signed up!
{my email addy is in my profile- about me}

International friends you are very welcome to join!

Lets start 2009 with a fun loving heart filled swap!
{above is a smaller picture for your sidebar if you'd like}

Hi Dolly! I've never done a swap before. I heard about this through Connie at Living Beautifully. I have a 14 year old daughter that would probably love to do this also. She will be 15 on February 11th. I brought her home from the hospital on Valentine's Day so this is a very special holiday each year for us. I will send you the requested info. Thank you for hosting this!!
