Second Annual PIN KEEP SWAP!

What a blast we all had last year when I hosted a Pin Keep swap.  It seems too early to start an Easter swap, so I thought it would be fun to have another 


 I love all the cute pin keeps I see around the web! 
If you wish to sign up, comment here, and then please send me your mailing information and preference to
I am hoping I won't have to chase anyone down for their info, so please jot me a note as soon as you comment below.

Rules are as follows:

*Swap is for ONE pin keep, which is to be handmade by you or you may purchase it from another crafter...nothing store bought and please make it something you would love to receive.

*Since postage is going up once again, I'd like to limit this swap to swappers living in the US.  I will also do my best to match you up with someone nearby, as postage is cheaper for addresses that are not half a country away.  I will try my best, but cannot guarantee your partner will be close-by, as I have no idea who will be joining in the fun.

*Sign-ups will be taken until January 31.  I will let you know your partner's name and info on Feb. 1.

*  You will have until March 1 to mail out your package...and you must mail it with a delivery confirmation.  You can use whatever mail service (priority, parcel post) you wish, but you must have that delivery confirmation and send it to your partner.

*You must be a follower of my blog and you must send me your last few swap partners' names, so I can match you up with someone new.

*Once you receive your pin keep from your partner, you must make a post on your blog showing it and thanking your partner.

If you wish to promote this swap on your blog, you may borrow the imagine above and post it on your sidebar or in a post.  I thank you in advance for your support!

Here's a few Etsy pin keeps to get your creative juices flowing.  Create one from any of the great patterns available, or try your hand at designing a one of a kind Pin Keep!

Hope to hear from you today!
