Harvest Gatherings Swap Sign Up

Yes I know I'm late.Several of you have emailed to remind me..smile..Just been a hectic week and haven't had time to get on the computer much...So here goes...I do want to just say one thing before going on with the swap info A few of you have neglected your Thank You Post, it is hurtful to your partner when they put so much effort into making you a lovely package.If for some reason you can not post email me and your partner otherwise I will block you from the next 2 swaps.This will be a semi open swap which means new people can join in upon approval.For new sign ups you must have a active blog and have posted within the last 30 days.You must be a primitive,colonial,country or farmhouse type blog.You must be a follower of my blog yes new followers are ok.I will check you out and get back to you.occasionally I'll ask you to wait till the next swap so I can get to know you a little better.It's not ment to be mean,I just want to protect the girls involved so they can have a fun and safe swap.It's no fun sending a gift only to be burned so I do check into everyone.Some of the rules may sound strict but our group enjoys higher quality swaps and enjoys the safety that comes along with smaller groups...Golden Rule~ Give as you'd like to receive......You can post the swap banner on your side bar if you want with a link back.

Our theme is Harvest Gatherings which will be Fall and primitive general items.It can be Halloween through Thanksgiving.This swap will require a Pumpkin of some sort.It can be sewn, a scented candle,soap, painted as long as their is a pumpkin item in the box it counts. You must also have one stitched thing in the package like bowl fillers,penny rug, doll, stichery and hooked items count too. Can be purchased or handmade by you.You must send at least 3 other items your choice.So a total of 4 items must be in the box.Yes you may send extra most do...

If you are a regular in the group you know the general rules and nothing has changed Swap Rules ~You must like to give gifts as well as receive.Please only send things you would really enjoy getting ~ I do keep a list of bad swappers and people I have been giving warnings about you know who you are so please do not sign up here ~ USA and Canada only ~ No dollar amount as I feel that hand dids can not be priced.Basically send a nice package you'd like to receive and please NO Dollar Store stuff ~ You must contact your partner once you receive your email and say Hi! ~ You must Thank your partner (they have given you a gift after all) and post your goodies we all like to see.A few of you missed this last swap I do check, and it is hurtful to some when they put so much effort to not even be acknowledged.

Sign ups open till August 31st Package must be mailed no later than Sept 29th can be sent parcel post but it will need to have a confirmation #.Please comment on this post then email me the following info.. cottageprims@hotmail.com I will email you a cofirmation within 24 hours so if you don't hear from me I didn't reacive it.
