****Swap closed ****

I had 20 people to sign up, so there will be 20 swappers. If you signed up on my blog and/or are included in the swap. I will try to email you within the next few days and make sure you have the swap info.

***PLEASE MAKE 20 STICK PINS.....1 pin per person. You can send me 19 for swapping and 1 for yourself**** The pins can be identicial or you can make different is totally up to long as I receive 19 to swap. Please use at least 2 glass beads. You can use flowers, charms, etc in place of a bead.

1)Please be sure to have your packages POSTMARKED by September 03, 2010. This way I can turn it around very fast and you will have your beautiful pins. If anything comes up, please let me know and we can work out something.

2)Please attach pins to some type of card, tag, etc.

3)Please use a padded envelope or bubble wrap, etc to ensure the pins will not poke through the envelope and for the safty of the postal workers ;)

4)Please use at least a 6x9 envelope for the return package. It is best to send a return envelope the same size that you mail to me in. Since the pins will be on some type of card it will make the envelope a little larger and the small envelopes will not be large enough.

5)Please send the return envelope with your address on the front. Please be sure to add as much postage to the return envelope as it took to mail to me. Please add 1 extra stamp in the envelope, just in case. If I do not need to use it, I will return to you.

6) Please add your name, YouTube name or blog on the card or tag that you attach the pin to. This way we can tell who made the pin.

If you have any questions or need more info, please email me and I will get back with you ASAP. I check my emails many, many times a day for work purposes and my personal email is linked to my business, so I will get it fast....unless I am crafting...LOL :)

You can email me at

***Please email for my address*****

PLEASE **** If anything comes up and you need to leave the swap, let me know. This way I can get a replacement and everyone can receive 19 pins back.

Thanks to all that signed will be a great swap and can't wait to see all the pins. I will do a video on them when I receive all of them.
