The swap sign up is OVER! Thanks to everyone who joined in on the FUN :D Emails with your partners information will be sent out Monday...
Hey yall! Valentine's Day is going to be here faster than we know it and I'd love to help spread some love across the blogosphere :D I am going to host my 1st blog swap, woo hoo! I've never done this before so I'm excited and full of nervous energy too ;) Do yourself a favor and sign up! It's going to be so much fun :D
♥ This is a HANDMADE card swap! No store bought cards allowed ;) No one cares if you aren't the best at making stuff! This isn't a contest, it's just a fun swap and a great way to connect with other people in the blogosphere! You can send more than a card if you like, but you must send at least ONE handmade card, k?
♥ US RESIDENTS ONLY (Sorry to my international friends :( It just makes things a little easier on me this go round. Don't fret though, I have more swaps planned for the future and a giveaway coming soon that will be open to everyone! Don't be mad at me *batting eyelashes*)
♥ THE LOW DOWN: This swap is going to be done secret-santa style! In other words, you won't be sending to the person who is sending you a valentine. You will be sending to Susie and Susie will be sending to Jane and Jane will be sending to Rita and Rita will be sending to Melly Kay and Melly Kay will be sending to you. Get it? Got it? Gravy.If we don't have the right amount of people for it to work out evenly, I will be sending to the rest! Everyone is getting a Valentine no matter what, YAY!!
SIGN UP ENDS Saturday January 23 @ 12:00 midnight cst - Don't miss out!!
TO SIGN UP: Leave ONE comment and tell me your favorite thing about Valentine's Day! AND Send me an EMAIL to writelamc @ gmail.com (without the spaces) with the following: -your username (the name you left your comment under) -your real name -your mailing address
Please title your email in caps "VDAY SWAP" or something like that so it pops out, thanks!!
Once you do both of those things, you are signed up! You will receive your swap partners mailing info on Monday, January 25. That will leave you with over a week to design, create, and send your card. ALL cards must be sent off no later than Friday, February 5th. (Just to ensure everyone gets theirs by the big day. I think if I get mine early, I'm going to wait and open it on the 14th...even MORE fun :D)Once you open your card, I hope you'll post pics in your blog and show everyone what you got!
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL...
♥ ♥ ♥ The first 7 people to blog about this swap (and post the link in a comment) will receive a FREE surprise gift from LAMC!! You will NOT want to miss out, so hurry!
I've also made a blog widget that you can post on your blog to let everyone know about the swap. I appreciate everyone who helps get the word out! Let's make this the biggest card swap ever :D The link is over there on the sidebar at the top...just copy and paste it into your blog to get the word out!
I really hope you'll sign up! If you've never done this kind of thing before, it's the perfect time to do it! It's a new year to try new things and swaps are SO much fun :D (If you are worried about security, you do not have to put your return address or real name on your envelope!! Your partner will only know it if you write it. The only one who will have your address is ME and your sender & we won't stalk you, promise :) I might just send you some cool stuff randomly though)
(Oh and by the way...we all know unexpected things happen! If for some reason you have to withdraw from the swap, that's fine! But please please please let me know so I can make a card for your partner. I don't want anyone left cardless and bummed out. If you do not let me know and I never hear from you, you will be banned from all future swaps AND giveaways!! Don't be that person, okay? :P )
