2014 Valentine Days Swap-let’s do it!

 

PLEASE NOTE:  There are numerous comments that were deleted, I only deleted two and one was by whoever wrote it, PLEASE check and see if your comment is still below if you wish to be in the swap!  Sorry…don’t know what is going on….

 

I had a few questions so I added some more info below in # 1.
I have had quite a few emails and such about whether I was going to do a swap and I have decided that yes we will!


After having joined and hosted a few of these swaps I do have a set of rules….sorry but they are necessary for the swap to be good for everyone involved.

vintage_valentine-1

1. Make a Valentines Day card or tag or both. Also, a decorated candy box with  Valentine and Spring ephemera. Items people use to decorate crafts with, stickers, papers, lace, ric-rac, buttons, anything you think your partner would love, and of course a Valentine treat!  A box that is good for candy, like a Whitman’s Large Sampler Box is plenty large enough! This swap is not about sending the biggest box, but the most thoughtful.

2.  US bloggers only
.
3. You must have an ACTIVE blog, one that has been posted to at least twice a month in 2013,  if you do not use your blog, it is not active.

4. This is a one on one swap. Really look at your partners blog and ask questions….get to know them a bit better than just looking at photos or posts. This is not like a “secret” exchange so ask away…

5. These need to be in the mail no later than Feb 1st…..otherwise we get too close to the actual holiday.

6.  Use what you have! We all have many wonderful bits and bobs we can part with.  Let’s see where this takes us, I know for me it will be fun to find items in my stash….:)

7.  I will answer any questions you have via email.  sanjos333@gmail.com

8. PLEASE leave a comment on THIS post, with your email address also if you wish to participate in the swap. Bloggers that do not comment on this post, will not be added.  No emails asking to enter the swap please! I am going to pick partners in 7 days. That is January 9th. 
There will be NO more participants allowed to join after that, so please post this to your blogs so we can get a lot of participation!  The more the merrier!
Thanks and lets have fun!!!!!

Hi Sandy! I would love to join as well! I have changed blogs recently and the new one is http://craftingcapriciously.blogspot.com. I am also a bit un-clear as to the size of the box and what you expect us to put in it. I am thinking some printed vintage images, coordinated bits of papers, ribbons, buttons and other embellishments, Also maybe something handmade. I am so looking forward to getting started! Becky

This may not sound fair, because it’s not

But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

We just KNOW when it’s missing.

===> The “Secret Ingredient” to obsessive love <=====

The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====
