Are you ready?????

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas
and are ready to begin a new year!


Its that time again....
Time for My 3rd annual vintage heart swap!

The past 2 years have been a huge success...... over 200 bloggettes joined!

That's a whole lotta heart swappin girls!
I am excited to do it again this year!


Here is the swap scoop.....

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

for your partner you will fill a container with heart treasures!

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

ideas>>>> heart shaped basket, bowl, box, stocking, bucket, bag, 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 by February 4th!

5. please communicate with your partner!
Communication is the key to a successful swap!
Email them, read their blog, ask questions get to know your partner....

swaps are not just about giving and receiving its about making friends!

ALSO let me know if you are willing to ship international or prefer not to due to postage costs!


sign ups taken until January 8th,

I will send you your partner on or near January 11th,

{If can NOT absolutely commit please don't sign up}

This sounds like great fun... although it also sounds a bit complicated to me.... If I joined in ...would I be exchanging with the person you would pair me with?
