Spring Swap

One of the many blessings that I have received while in blogland is the abundance of new people I have met and gotten to know. In many of these cases I have had the joy of receiving some of the wonderful creations that so many have.

I have always been amazed at the wonderful things that others are able to do. Some are so unique it boggles my mind. It seems that each creation has a little piece of the person inside of it. No matter how simple or how grand each one is so special.

I have also had the pleasure of participating in some wonderful swaps. I enjoy a swap so much more than a giveaway as it allows everyone to partake of the joy of a surprise in the mail. No one needs to be left out and everyone is happy.

So this month instead of a giveaway I would like to attempt to organize a swap. Please be patient with me as this will be my first one. Below are the details . Come join us and share a little of your creative magic.

* Sign up for the swap by leaving a comment and/or emailing me that you wish to participate. Be sure that if you do just leave a comment that I will be able to contact you when I send out partners later in the month.

* Sign up for the Swap will begin today and run through March 16th (two weeks)

* On March 17th (St Patty's Day) I will pair up partners and send out the information to all those involved.

* Now for the good stuff: What will we swap!! Seeing that Spring is so close at hand and the newness of life is everywhere, plus the first day of spring is March 21, it is only fitting that this be our theme.
    * One item given - small or large  (can give more if you like)
    * Hand made if at all possible
    * Representive of Spring, Rebirth, Renewal, and New Life
    * Posted no later than Friday, March 18th

I am looking forward to the fun. If there are any questions feel free to email me.

It occurred to me that seeds would be an inexpensive and Spring suitable medium for this exchange! I have Datura pods, moonflower, & pumpkin seeds aplenty!

Janie... This sounds like such fun ~ I would love to participate! Please count me in. Spring is a great time to do something like this. I am SO ready to open the windows, let in the fresh air, and start a new project. This is just the ticket! Thank you.

A witch's swap! I'm in, if my future swap partner likes handmade, personalized bracelets or handmade earrings. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my swap partner loves to make jewelry as much as I do.
