Greetings Friends, Today I would like to announce my "Heidi's Homemade St. Valentine's Day Swap"!!......I just love Valentine's Day,....hearts & flowers & lovely shades of pink & rosy reds!....To adhere to this year's "homemade theme" I am asking you to make up the most beautiful box for your partner!!.....The box should include the following....
* 1-homemade item
* 1- dessert/cookie/confection recipe
* other pretty little items tailored to your partner's particular tastes!
I also think this is the one swap where you can pull out all the stops, make it frilly & feminine & just as incredibly lovely as possible!.....Now remember I suggest you spend only around $15, so our imaginations will be needed to think up some wonderful ideas to make this the most special swap box ever!
And like I have mentioned before....I have tried very hard to make sure anyone who signs up is treated fairly, but I have learned there is only so much I can do....the reality is "all swaps are somewhat of a gamble"!!....I usually have ladies sign up who are responsible & send amazing boxes, but occasionally problems arise, so know that before you sign up!....For me it is a chance I am willing to take!...I have been sent far more lovely swap boxes than not & have met some incredibly sweet ladies who have become my dear friends, so in the end I have a good feeling about swaps!
I would love to have you join me in my "Heidi's Homemade St. Valentine's Day Swap"......Please fill out & send me the following "Information Sheet" & I will sign you right up!.....You have till Wednesday, January 20th to sign up......And I am asking you each to send off your swap boxes no later than January 27th. I will e-mail out partners on January 21st, so you will have approximately 1 week to put together your box.
Ladies I am very excited about this swap & hope to hear from lots of you!...Write me to sign up as soon as possible!......Your friend, Heidi XO
