(Sign Ups Open) ~ Secret Friendship Envelope Swap ~ Come Read The Details!

I have decided to host another swap.

I think this one will be fun and inexpensive to ship, so I hope you decide to join in on the fun.

Okay, Lets start with the mandatory requirement….

All items must be shipped in One: 

10 1/2” by 15” padded envelope.

These are cheap to purchase.

I got mine at Wal-Mart for less than $2.00.

I'm sure you can find them other places too for relatively the same cost.


As far as what to send?

It does need to be in primitive, colonial or farmhouse style.

You know, the type of stuff all of love!

Other than that, it is totally up to you.

Here are some Examples:
Penny Rugs,
Cupboard Tucks,
Prim Soaps,
Prim Candles
Small dolls,
Pin Keeps,

As long as it can be safely sent in the padded envelope.

~ This will be a “Secret” Swap.

What that means is…

The person you are sending an envelope to, may not be who you are receiving one from.

You wont know who got your name until your envelope arrives in the mail.

~ So, be sure to include a little card or letter that has your name, blog, and email address with your swap goodies.

This is so your partner may send you a Thank You email for your gifts.

And so they know who to give credit to when showing new goodies off on their blog. :)

Along with your partners name and address, I will be giving you their blog name and url, so you can check out their blog and see the type of things they like.

Now on to the basics….


#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 There needs to be at least 3 items in the envelope.

Yes, of course, you may send more.

#4 The total value of swap goodies needs to be a minimum of $20.00.

This does not include the price of envelope or shipping, just the goodies inside.

Once again, if you go over that amount it is okay too.

~ Please no Dollar Tree items.

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

~ Please know, I will post the name and blog URL of anyone who doesn’t follow through with their swap package. 

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

#7 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. ;)

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

#9 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 isn't that much higher than the USA, especially since we are only sending padded envelopes.

~ 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.

Here is a sample of how I would like to receive your information.

Your Name:

Your Address:

Your Blog Name:

Your Blog URL:

Will you ship to Canada: Y/N

When you send it to me this way, it makes it soooo much easier when making the partner list.

The very last day to sign up for the swap will be May 17th.

I will then get to work picking out who gets who.

I will try to have these all emailed out no later than May 20th.

The deadline for mailing out your Swap Envelopes will be:

June 17th, 2011

This will give you 4 weeks to get your swap goody package ready.

Yes, you may mail out your packages earlier than June 17th but no later than.

I Hope You decide to join in!!
