Sweet Liberty Swap Sign Up

Time for a Americana Swap! You are more than welcome to take the pic above and post it to your blog and link back to here.
I'd like to open this swap up a little to new swappers.So in order to sign up you must be a follower, Have a active blog I can check out (some of the old swappers do not have a blog which is fine if I know you) or if no blog I must know you to some extent like commenting,emails etc. If you are new to my swaps I will check out your  info and blog and approve you..I don't want to sound harsh but if you ever put effort into getting gifts together and then were taken advantage of you understand..I like to protect my girls and make it carefree for them it's supposed to be fun and blossom friendships.I am here to help as well if you have questions or concerns...
Swap is open to USA and Canada..Please understand as well all the girls send nice items so it is a higher quality swap.No dollar store stuff..Give as you'd like to receive.The pictures posted are ideas of the types of items normally sent.Ok now that we have the expectations out of the way let's get to the fun stuff...
Americana theme..Red, White and Blue..Stars, Flags, Presidents, Lady Liberty, Uncle Sam whatever reminds you of Americana....

  • The swap will consist of 4 items(yes extra items can be added)
  • 2 of the items must be Americana theme other 2 can be your choice 
  • One item must be stitched you can purchase or hand make but it must be included.Stitched includes dolls,bowl fillers,hooked,penny rugs and stitcheries

When you get your partner you must say hello and introduce yourself..Once you receive your swap you must thank your partner.Preferably a blog post since we all like seeing every ones gifts,You're partner can post both sides if you do not have a blog.I do not like doing a dollar limit as when you get into handdids it's hard to set a price.Your package should be nice.Look at the ideas pictured and that will help you understand the type of items...Sign ups will be open till March 16th I will email your partner by the 19th..Package must be shipped no later than April 16th with delivery confirmation..If you want to join in leave a comment then email at cottageprims@hotmail.com with the following info ( I need this even if you signed up before)

  •  Occasionally I have a extra or late sign up if needed would you want a extra partner? 
  • Are you willing to ship to Canada it only cost a few dollars extra?
