This Is So Me ~ This Is So You ~ Swap (Sign Ups Open)

Hi Everyone!!

Well, I have decided to host another swap.

I am calling it….

~ This Is So Me! ~ This Is So You! ~ Swap ~


Here is what I want you to do.

You are required to send 2 items.

Yes, you may send more if you chose, but the two things listed below are required.

I want you to think about yourself.

What one thing comes to mind that You think best describes YOU!

I know most of us have multiple things that do that!~:)

You know, the kind of item you see somewhere and think,

“That is soooo me.”

(Are seeing where I’m going with this?)

*Yep, in your swap goody package, I want you to send one item that you think is a good example of you.

Then for your second required item….

I want you to visit your swap partners blog.

Read through it, look at the photos, the links and other blogs she enjoys.

Then come up with an item You think best describes Her.

Something you think she will just LOVE!!

*Send her one item that you think best describes her.

These two items can be handmade or purchased.


Now, I know that 99.9% of you wonderful ladies always put so much heart and thoughtfulness into your swap packages.

But to the other 0.1% let me say…

Since I am only requiring 2 items, I want you to spend some time really thinking of something wonderful to send.

Something that really reflects you and your partner.

In other words, please don’t just throw a couple of items in a box and call it done.

We all look forward to receiving our goody packages, and it is very disappointing to get one in that was just thrown together.

On the other hand, there is nothing more wonderful then to get a swap in that you can tell your partner really put a lot of thought and heart into what to send.

If you are not willing or able to take the time and the effort in making your swap package special, then please don't join in.


Okay, I’ll now jump down off the soap box and share the Rules to The Swap…


#1 you must be a follower of my blog and have commented at least a few times so I am familiar with who you are.

#2 you must have an active blog of your own. 

#3 your swap package must be at least a $20 value.

#4 You must be committed to mailing out your package on time.  No one likes to wait 2 months for their goody package to arrive.

#5 You must have delivery confirmation on your shipped package and email me the number when you ship it out.

#6 Only send items you would like to receive.  Don’t use this swap to get rid of things you don't like or want.  Because more than likely your partner won’t want them either. ;)

#7 You Must thank your partner when you receive your goodies!

#8 You must live in the USA or Canada.

If you don't want to ship to Canada, you MUST let me know ahead of time. Let me know when you email me your shipping information.
Because I am opening the swap to Canada blogging pals.
Shipping to Canada isnt that much higher than the USA.

~ If you agree to the above rules and would like to join in on the swap, please email me your name and address.

~ PLEASE be sure to include your blog name And blog URL.  This helps me keep track of what blog goes with what name.  Plus it makes it easier when making up the partner list.

I am going to leave the signups open for 1 Week.

I know not very long but I don't want to get overwhelmed.

~The very last day to sign up will be next Friday,  March 4th.

I will spend that weekend setting up the partner list and will try to get them out to everyone the following Monday, March 7th.

You will have One month (and 1 day) to finish up your swap packages.

All goody packages will need to be mailed out no later than,  Friday April 8th.

Yes, you may mail them out earlier, but please no later than April 8th.

I will be adding another linky to the top of my blog for showing off goody packages, when it get closer to that time.

So, when you get them in and make a blog post about them, Link Up.

I think the Linky is a great way to see everyone's goody packages.  And helps us all from missing anyone's post.


I hope you decide to join in!!

I thought this swap would be a fun example of how we see ourselves and how others see us.
Please dont let that scare you off.
LOL!! It is all meant to be Fun!

Talk Soon…
