i {heart} swap

• 09 September 2007

Tell all your favorite gal pals to sign up because this is going to be fun!! What a great way to discover new people with similar interests as well as discover new blogs and such. Captivated? Riveted? Read on little ladies...

To participate, all you need to do is gather up items you love...a little something you've made, a book and/or magazine you love, makeup you can't live without, household item, photograph, food item (although this can get tricky via mail), stationery set, a piece of jewelry, etc. and send them off to a swap partner (assigned to you by moi). Use your creativity and imagination--there's no stoppin' ya! Anything long as you {heart} it.

i heart swap

the Nitty Gritty:

1. Leave a comment or email me (see right column), either works to let me know you are interested in participating in the swap.

2. Once you're "in", I'll need some basic info from you including name, mailing address, interests, blog (if applicable) and a little ditty about yourself. I will consider all this info when assigning you a swap partner.

3. So start gathering...isn't that what us women do best?!

Please note the signup deadline is Wednesday, September 19 and the delivery deadline is Monday, October 8.

Spread the word by blog, email or word of mouth! This will be a great diversion for us all over the next few weeks. I can't wait to hear about all your favorite things!

  1. Hey Steph,
    I got your blog info from Merillee Gottfredson. I've had a lot of fun reading about you. I am Lindsey Hall's sister in law. I met you at her house for New Years awhile back. We had a great time with you and Ben. I'm curious about your swap. It sounds fun. Do we buy new items or find used around our house???? I'm not sure. Let me know! -Julie Pia

  2. Hi Julie! It's nice to hear from you! I'd love to have you participate. So are you friends with Merrilee too then? Small world! Re: the swap, I've only participated in one myself but I've read a lot about them on other blogs and it seems to me that the packages people put together are combinations of both used and new things. For example, the one I sent out included new stationery, a funky mouse pad from See Jane Work, new pens, etc. but then i also included some fun things from around the house--cool labels, tags I made, etc. I saw one swap where she made a "craft apron" and then included some new things with it too. It really can be whatever. But I personally think it's nice to mix it up a bit. If you want more info, email me at the address in the right column. Anyway, thanks for popping in. It was great to see your name pop up! Let me know if you end up deciding to participate. It would be great to have you! Have a great week :)

  3. i'm so excited!! i've been dying to join a swap!!

  4. Hey Steph, Thanks for responding so quickly. It really is a small world. I know Merillee through my husband who went to highschool with Merillee's husband Steve. She raved about your blog one day and told me to check it out. I had know idea it was you or that you and Merillee knew each other. Pretty crazy huh? Anyway, it must be fate. I would love to join the swap. It sounds exciting and fun. Count me in and email me all the info. Thanks, Julie
