Send A Little Love Swap 2017

The holidays are coming to an end and the house will soon feel bare when all the decorations and lights are taken down and safely stored in their boxes for another year and with a few more wintery months ahead of us here in the UK who fancies kicking off 2017 with a love swap.


The idea of this swap is to send 5 things to include :
Some sewing or yarny notions that have a love theme
Something heart shaped or themed
Something deliciously edible
Something handmade
Something red 

If you would like to see what I received and sent last year just click on the link below
Send A Little Love Swap 2016


This swap is open to both UK and overseas bloggers/Instagramers and readers of my blog
(you just need to have an email contact). 
I will be pairing bloggers with bloggers and Instagramers with Instgramers
If you would like to take part then please leave a comment on this post or on my Instagram post, letting me know if you wish to post UK, Europe or worldwide
Sign up by the Friday 6th January 2017
Swap partners will be posted on my blog/IG on Sunday 8th January 2017
Then it's up to you to make contact with your partner and get to know each other a little better, swap details and arrange a timescale.
Swap parcels need to arrive at their destination no later than Monday 13th February 2017 with an opening date of Tuesday 14th February 2017
I don't like the idea of rules for swaps so here are some handy guidelines ;-)
Swaps are supposed to be fun and a great way to use items/supplies you already have at home. Handmade is open to interpretation everyone's skills are different don't ever think that you can't because the chances are you can, as long as something has been made with love then I'm sure it will be appreciated by your partner.
I don't like to put a price limit on swaps but with postage costs at an all time high we can all appreciate a bit of thrifty spending.
Life sometimes has a habit of getting in the way of things, if for whatever reason (and you don't have to say why) you can't continue or need to delay sending out your swap then just let me or your swap partner know.
So that's the boring bit out of the way, if I have forgotten anything then please let me know and if you need any inspiration then there's always Pinterest!
As always I'll be pinning like crazy, I also have a secret swaps board so that I can keep some of my ideas hidden just in case my swap partner is peeping!
Please feel free to use the Send A Little Love Swap button and the link below to share the swap on your blogs/IG. Any questions just ask.

  8. Hiya Tracy, how lovely to hear from you. It reminds of the early days of blogging when we were swap partners way back when. I still have the little fabric heart hanging up which you sent. I think I should kickstart the blogging year by joining in your swap too. I would prefer UK only if that's ok. Thanks for popping over to mine and leaving your comment too. I really appreciate it.
