Fall Pin Keep Swap

So many gals wrote to me asking if I could hold another Pin Keep Swap!  They have enjoyed the two we've had so far, so I decided to make it a semi-annual event, and try to squeeze them in during the 'unbusy' times of the years. My last one was in February...which believe it or not was 6 months ago!  Whew - where does the time go?

Let's get down to the basics ladies.....here are the rules:

Sign-ups last from now until August 5th.  

Pinkeeps are due to be mailed no later than Sept 5th.  I will have your swap partner to you by Sept 6th.

*Your Pin Keep MUST be mounted on something at least 4" high....like a candlestick, funnel, rusty spring, band box, etc.  No small pin keeps included in the swap this time.

*The Pin Keep MUST be handmade by you.

*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 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.

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!





Isn't this one lovely?!

Hope you join in the fun!

Tomorrow I will be posting the Summer Beer Recipe I promised the other day!
Enjoy your day - Prim Blessings
