Summer is here and the weather is blossoming in Sunny Southern California. We've had some recent cloudy days but nothing I can complain about. I've been in such a Marie Antoinette mood lately- can you tell? Well I havent come across too many swaps in the blogging world lately so I it's about time I throw my own!
How this works is very simple and tons of fun! The limit is 20 people, so sign up and tell you're friends fast! Once I have 20 people the sign up list will be closed. You can really get you're creative juices flowing in this one- I'm not putting restrictions on the size or style of you're tag, but please keep it fairly light and easy to ship. You will be making 10 Unique Marie Antoinette style gift tags that can be used for decorating, enhancing gifts, packaging, thank you notes, and almost any arts and crafts project you're working on.
When the swap is closed I will send you the names of 10 fellow participants I've matched up for you but you can't see their blog yet in case they post pictures- you want it to be a surprise!!! You also have the option of filling out a short fun questionare about you're personal tastes, whether it's vintage, shabby chic, cottage cozy, whatever you're pleasure. Filling this out will help me match you up to similar artists, but it's not mandatory. You must have you're tags sent out to all you're matches by the due date- that's very important! Once I obtain notice that the recipient has received their beautiful tags check out their blogs and PROMOTE their creative talents to all you're blogging friends. And don't forget to take pictures of you're new treats!!!
This is a wonderful way to show you're talents off and get you're blog name out there in the world. I love it because it passes time well, especially for stay at home mothers who need a creative outlet while the babies sleeping. hehe =]
To sign up leave a cute comment with you're email address and the first 20 people will receive an email questionnaire regarding final shipping dates and further details. If chosen, please put the button on you're blog to show you're support.
The main rule is you must only sign up if you are dedicated and are willing to go through with the swap- it's very important to everyone who is sweet enough to take time out of their day to do this and will make the whole experience more fun for everyone.
Here's a button, feel free to throw it up on you're page to get the swap together quicker!!!

I can't wait to see all the creative and fun people that sign up for this swap- let's get this show on the road!
