Oooh, we're wrapping up this Polka Dot Pretties swap very nicely! KEEP POSTING pictures of your packages when you receive them and cc me on your thank you email. Here are a few more wrap-up details:
THANK YOUs are SO important. We all spend time selecting the perfect fabric, the perfect pattern, and the perfect cookbook. Don't be shy about showing your enthusiasm and appreciation. Is the apron you received not quite to your taste? That doesn't mean your partner put in any less time and attention, so please be gracious and give thanks for the effort.
IF YOU HAVEN'T SENT YOUR PACKAGE, I need to hear from you asap about your intentions. If you haven't mailed yet, you MUST send your package two-day priority or express with tracking at this point. If you can't finish your sewing, Etsy is a great option for aprons (you still need to send the cookbook and any add-ins). Flirty Apron Swap previous sponsors like Sassy Apron, MoMo's Retro Fashions, My Mom Would Be Proud, and J. Carrell Originals are all excellent sources for handmade aprons. Not mailing a package or mailing seriously late can affect your ability to participate in future swaps, so please write me today. I know that life can throw some serious curves at us, so just talk to me, and let's see what we can work out.
ANGELS ANYONE? There are still 12 packages yet to be mailed. I will decide by this weekend if I need to replace any of those package. If you are willing and able to angel a package, please let me know right away. I'll only call you if I REALLY need you. Thanks!!
WINNERS! There were 48 names in the drawing of gals who mailed on time or made extra comments for entries. Our THREE winners are: Cheryl C in UT, Jennifer W in Ontario, and Pamela P in KS!! Congratulations! I am so jealous!! I adore Bev's headbands. If you didn't win one, she has several adorable headbands for sale at Buxom Bevie's on eBay!
ROUND 10 HINT! Well, I'm already thinking ahead to our next fun swap. Here are a couple of not-so-subtle hints.
