2014 Spring Pin Keep Swap!

I figured I may as well jump right back into the swing of things by beginning sign-ups for my
Semi-Annual Pin Keep Swap.

This Swap is centered around what we are all thinking about and longing for....

SPRING


So ladies....here are the rules:
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

Sign-ups last from now until February 16th. 

Pinkeeps are due to be mailed no later than March 16th.   I will have your swap partner to you by February 17th.

*Your Pin Keep MUST be mounted on something and at least 6" high....like a candlestick, funnel, rusty spring, band box, larger pin cushion base, etc.  No small pin keeps included in the swap this time.  If you have any questions about what is required, please send me a note and I will be happy to clarify.   I want to be certain that everyone receives a similar size creation.

*The Pin Keep MUST be handmade by you.

*The pin keep must include something to do with Spring...flowers, birds, tiny critters...anything that says "Yes, the world is alive again"...lol

*Only followers of my blog and regular contributors will be allowed in this swap.  If you aren't sure if you qualify, just jot me a comment and I'll get back to you.  I usually let new swappers in my swaps, and pair them with myself, but this swap is for my faithful followers only.  I will hold more swaps in the future.

*You MUST have a blog of your own, so that you can post about your swap when you receive it.  The gals all like to see what people make/receive - that's part of the fun!

*This swap is open to the USA and I will open this swap to my Canadian friends as well - please let me know if you are willing to swap with a lovely lady from up north.

*You MUST contact your partner once you receive her name and info to touch base.  It's also nice to let them know when you have sent your swap package and received one too.

*You MUST make a THANK YOU post on your  blog.  Noone likes their time and effort to be ignored, so don't forget to thank your partner properly.

*You can include more goodies in your swap package, but you are only obligated to make a pin keep as described above.

If for some reason you cannot meet the deadline, please let your partner know and email me as well, so we can make other arrangements.  Don't let your partner down.

OKAY - READY TO SIGN UP?

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SEND ME YOUR INFORMATION!  Things are so crazy around here, and I don't always have time to chase after people for their information.  I say this every time, but inevitably, someone forgets....thanks for your understanding.  :-)

Here's a few examples to get those creative juices flowing!

  1. Wendy, I think I'd like to join your swap. I've not been in one for some time as the last two years I've not had time with the care of my MIL and my hubby, but I'm ready to do something fun. Besides, it will prompt me to get back into blogging on a regular basis again, I've missed everyone more than I realize.
    I will forward my info to you later this evening and also follow your instructions.
    Blessings,
    Sheila
