Let's Have A Summer Swap!

I love swaps! I get sooo excited when I get my package in the mail! I so enjoy getting items that others have made and admire their creativity. I also like giving swaps. I love trying to think of what they would like from conversing with them and then putting it together.
So, let's have a summer swap! Summer is so much fun and there are so many things you can make or buy for summer. I want this to be a fun swap so put your thinking hats on and get geared up for summer!!
I want this to be easy so the rules are going to be simple. Remember shipping costs while you are putting your swap together.
You must be a follower of this blog. This way I can keep up with everyone and make sure everyone gets their swap.
Be sure and mail swap on time so that everyone can have their goodies for the entire summer.
Play nice. Send something that you would like to get in return.
Send first rate or priority with confirmation. Please send your partner the confirmation number when you have mailed it.
If you don't want to ship to Canada please let me know by email so that I will not partner you up with a Canadian partner. I have friends in Canada so it doesn't bother me.
There will be a minimum of two gifts to be sent, one handmade, the other store bought. Think ladybugs, watermelons, bees, birds, bird feeders, anything for summer. Store bought can be a small garden flag, garden tools, garden gloves, flower seeds, anything that is cute or can be used for summer. If you want to send more than 2 that's fine but send at least 2.
Make the entire package be at least $20.00 in value. This would be what you would sell your item for and the cost of the store bought item. I don't want to delete your bank account.LOL
Also contact your partner and see what she likes, dislikes, any allergies, etc.
So if you are in for a fun swap just leave a post here or send me an email at valerie999@comcast.net
So come on everyone, sign up and have fun with this swap. You have until April 25th to sign up and packages need to be mailed by May 25th. This gives everyone 1 month to decide what to send and time to make it. Have fun!! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at valerie999@comcast.net
And I have added some new items in my Etsy shop. Here's a peek at two of them.

Love your new Items, Val! I've already joined a Swap for the same time frame so will pass on this one since we'll be out of town for part of the summer. Maybe you'll have one for the fall/winter?!
