Who's up for a Swap?

SympleTymes design
Good morning friends!   The sun is trying to peek out today after about 3 inches of snow yesterday...yippee!  First off I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments about Drew's great news...they mean a lot!
Now...on to the Swap News!

I  have developed a great interest in Pin Keeps and I thought it might be fun to have a pin keep swap!  I'm talking about the really cute ones that sit up on a pedestal of some kind, not the flat square ones, although they are lovely too.   I've seen so many neat ones through my blog hopping....for example:
Past Design from SoftintheHead
Country Threads online shop
Crafty Avenue design 
I think they are so adorable!  Be sure to visit these wonderful designers!   So girls, if you are up for another swap,  please read the rules below and sign up on THIS post only please.

Rules for the Pin Keep Swap:

1.  You must be a follower of my blog.  New followers are always welcome.  This is required so that you can keep up to date on my postings regarding the swap.

2.  You must be committed to following through with the swap.  Noone likes to get short-changed in a swap.

3.  Sign ups will end on good-ole Tax Day - April 15th.   I will then match up and get your partners name to you the next day.

4.  You must send me an email with your name and full mailing address upon signing up.  I'm much too busy to go chasing around getting addresses, so please remember to do this.

5.  All pin keeps must be designed on a pedestal of some kind, candlestick or small box, etc....you get the idea.

6.  All pin keeps are due in the mail NO LATER than May 15th.  Since the swap is for only one pin keep, that seems like a reasonable time.

So girls, if you are game, sign up below and we'll get this Swap started.  
Have a wonderful day!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR ADDRESS TO ME immediately after signing up.  I have already had 2 people sign up and not send their information.  Thanks so much!
