Humble Heart Swap Sign Up

Well girls it's time for our first swap of 2013! This one will be open so I will accept new people into the swap but we have strict rules so please read through before signing up.I know some of the rules to some people may sound harsh but there are other general swap groups out there,the girls in our group are generous givers and I want them protected from the people that are out to get something for nothing.Swaps should be fun and worry free and I check up on all of the swaps as well.If you are a regular in the group you know the general rules and nothing has changed..
Sign Up Rules
  • You must have a active blog which means you have posted within the last 2 months (yes I do check)
  • This is a primitive/farmhouse style swap so only sign up if you like that style
  • USA and Canada only
  • We do not set a price amount on our swaps as most of the girls hand make alot of the items and no value can be placed on handdids.BUT NO DOLLAR STORE STUFF and NO SENDING THINGS THAT YOU WOULD NOT WANT TO RECIEVE YOURSELF! Basically send nice things...
  • This a general prim swap..You need to include at least 4 items in your box(yes you can send extra's most do)..One item must have a heart theme/motif.One item must be stitched this item can be your heart item.Stitched includes bowl fillers,stitcheries,dolls.penny rugs,hooked or punched.You can purchase or make your item but the one stitched thing most be included..The other items just general prims or soaps,candles,teas ect.
  • Sign up by Jan 9th
  • Ship package no later than Feb 6th
  • You must email your partner and get to know her a little once you recieve your info
  • You must Thank your partner and Post your swap once recieved.
  • Any violations of the rules and you will no longer be elligible for future swaps.I do check on all the girls in my swaps and if any problems arise address it quickly.I'd rather be the bad guy than have a girl work hard to give only to be taken advatage of.On another note I do have a list of some bad swappers from other sites so if you are one of them (yes you know if you are) do not bother to sign up.Like I said there are other swaps out there for you.

Hi Amy, Oh, I love your swaps. But I better pass on this one, my mom is having surgery on her arm Monday and then the next week my daughter is having eye surgery. I will be busy helping them for awhile. But I sure hope you have a Spring swap and I will sign up for that one for sure.
Wishing you a blessed 2013, hugs, Lecia

Hi Amy,

I would love to join in! Due to my health issues and well a pretty miserable 2012, I didn't do many swaps after last winter. Everything went down hill and fast. Well, I am trying to be more postive and I am trying to get back to the person I used to be before my health issues stole my life. I would love to join if it is ok. I hope and pray that the new year will bring better things for us all.
thank you.
