I have participated in a couple so far & found that they were simply delightful!!! It is a chance to meet some of the lovliest people & put together the most charming surprises!......I know it is August & we are all continuing to enjoy the summer, but I wanted to get this swap started, since I would love to give you all plenty of time.
So this is how it will work. You will have till Monday, August 25th to leave me a comment, letting me know you would like to participate....Please make sure you add your e-mail address to your comment so I can get in touch with you.....As soon as you sign up, I will be sending you each a tiny "Halloween Favor" for signing up....a small assortment of darling Halloween tags...courtesy of Holly at "mommyholly.etsy.com"..... I've also added a "button" to the right side of my blog, that you can add to your own blogs....Please help me spread the word! After I have all the participants, I will pair you up with a partner,..... e-mailing you to let you know who it is & their specifics.
As for what to send your lucky partner?....I think something with a "vintage feel" would be lovely! I know I always covet the darling Halloween items that look like pieces from years ago! It can be one thing or a grouping of little Halloween surprises....but should not exceed $20-$30. You are all a creative group out there!!...you could make something wonderful or purchase your gift!....Either way, please make sure & put a bit of thought in the presentation!...wrap in sweet paper, add a little ribbon, write a wee card!...make it something you would LOVE to receive!!!
And the last thing...You will be responsible to make sure & have your "Halloween" swap box in the mail & sent to your partner by Monday, September 22nd. That way we all will have our suprises in time to set out & use during the month of October.....Also I thought we might all enjoy seeing what each other received, so on Wednesday, October 1st, lets all post about this swap, showing all our "gifts"!!!.....I will add a list of all the participants & their partners & we can go down the list visiting each other! What a great way to kick off October!
So I invite you all to be part my "Very Vintage Halloween Swap"!!!!...I think it could be amazingly fun!!...& maybe a bit "spooky" in the process!....Sign up soon!......Your friend, Heidi XO
P.S. Of course I am hosting a Halloween swap..... After all, I am a naturally born "witch"......my birthday is October 31st!!!!....Bye for now!....
