A "Very Successful" Very Vintage Valentine Swap.....

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Thank you...Thank you ....Thank you!!!!......I am officially finishing my "Very Vintage Valentine Swap"...& with such pride in all of you wonderful participants & optimisim for all my future swaps!!! Out of 120+ ladies joining me, there was only one lady who did not follow through & with no explanation. She has been notified that she is no longer welcome in my swaps & her partner has been sent a few lovely things to hopefully make up for not receiving a swap box.

I once again cannot thank you ladies enough for making this swap such a delightful experience for me!.....Without all of you, there would be no swaps. I know we are all taking a bit of a chance when signing up, but I have come to the conclusion I am willing to take it. Meeting all of you & becoming your friend through swapping & blogging far outweighs the risk!....You all have acted so responsibly & because of it made this a great experience for all!...I hope you know you are all welcome in my swaps at any time! :).....I appreciate you all......Love, Heidi XO

Note: I will be announcing my Very Vintage Easter Basket Swap in a few weeks!!!

(Note: Ladies Who Did not Follow Through: 1- Dori C.)

Hurrah! I'm so glad that it was a success, Heidi! I had a wonderful time, Sweetie! Yes, we all take a chance when we participate in a swap, but there are so many lovely ladies/friends that I have met this way! I am pairing up partners right now for my swap and I am so hoping that everyone has fun and perhaps make a wonderful new friend! Lori

I plan on posting names of people that do not follow through, too...

Hi Heidi,
It's me again, I checked my email, but haven't received anything from you about the Kitchen Baubles swap. Was just wondering if you sent them out yet.
