The time is here ... our next swap is ready for registrations!
First, I just need to put it out there that I struggle with Halloween. I LOVE the dressing up, the colors, the fun and laughter; I HATE the creepy, the evil, the dark side. For this swap, the rule of thumb is CUTESY/FLIRTY or COSTUME-Y not creepy/scary. Aprons made in a fall theme/colors would be great, too.
Also, I've had some feedback that not all swap package are created equal, so to speak. I would ask that everyone tries to spend around the same for our tuck-ins. I think minimum $15 is fair. So, do not send only dollar-store items but some things that YOU would love to receive. Even $15 isn't very much, but can go far as long as you shop the sales for bargains, hand craft some items, use your stash, or even shop vintage/thrift stores for the good stuff. I have added ideas and links to the right sidebar and I will regularly post ideas for tuck-ins, too. We are a creative bunch so I can't wait and see what you pull together!

Create a handmade Flirty Halloween Apron package! Your apron can be cutesy, costume-y, or fall-flavored -- no CREEPY aprons allowed! You will include at least three "tuck-ins" relative to the theme; all items must be handcrafted, new, or be in "good as new" condition if they are thrifted or re-gifted. Plan on spending a minimum of $15 on the tuck-ins, in addition to the apron and postage. Really read your partner's registration/blog for their likes and dislikes. And, as always, make your package pretty … wrap it in tissue, tie it up with a cute bow, and include a personal little note card please.
Also, due to the time-sensitive nature of this swap, NO LATE PACKAGES. Please do not sign up if you cannot make the deadlines for this one.
Since this is a short registration window, I'm hosting a little contest to get word out. I bought some adorable Halloween fabric and have three fat-quarter bundles to give away (one FQ of each style included in every bundle).
