REGISTRATIONS OPEN - Be My Cutie Pie Flirty Apron Swap

Yeah, it's that time again -- I get to announce our next Flirty Apron Swap! I cannot BELIEVE that this will be the 14th swap I've hosted here!!!

In trying to decide on this month's theme, something new and different yet still familiar, I found out that, while February is host to several "chocolate" days, the month of February is also National Pie Month. Sounds good to me! Pies and Valentines, what could be a "sweeter" combination (hah!)?

Deadline to Register: January 15

NEW FAS Swappers Mail to Shawnee before: January 29

All Others Mail After: January 31

Mail Before: February 5


Create a handmade "Be My Cutie Pie" apron – a special February apron that has something on it related to Pie Baking, Valentines, or Vintage Love. In addition, you will include three tuck-ins: one kitchen/baking item, one Valentines item, and one cute vintage (or repro vintage) item.


All items must be handcrafted, new from the store, or thrifted (but only if they are in “better than new” condition). Plan on spending a minimum of $15 on tuck-ins in addition to your apron and postage (boxes MUST be sent 2-day priority w/tracking). Then, make this a special box – gift wrapping, bows, the whole nine yards!


Include a note identifying yourself with your email and blog address so your partner can contact you with her grateful thanks.

SORRY - REGISTRATIONS ARE CLOSED

Be sure to register early (brand new swappers must have an active blog or facebook). I've been known to offer a prize to those who not only register early but share it with their friends. LEAVE ME A COMMENT below when you register. LEAVE ANOTHER COMMENT when you invite a buddy, facebook, tweet, or blog about this swap!

PS - Grab the swap badge, too -- I like to randomly check for badges, too, for possible prizes!
