Happy April 1st Swappers!

So.............. Shawnee said that we will get our partner info on the 1st of April and I realized that somewhere in the world it's already April 1st.
Soooooooo, I just wanted Shawnee to know that I'm totally OK with her posting our partner info today if she was so inclined.......cuz I'm not anxious to get started or anything....I"m just saying that maybe someone else might be anxious to get started .......*wink* *wink* and I'm just selflessly thinking of other swappers who are checking this blog daily....not like I do that.....but other people probably do......

REGISTER NOW - Flirty Apron Swap 15 "Spring Fling"

 Now is the time to register for the next round of the Flirty Apron Swap.  If you love to sew cute and flirty aprons, this swap is for YOU!!  I cannot believe how fast winter flew by, and today is the first FULL DAY of spring.  Now, I know in some parts of the country, the weather still feels very cold and dreary.  So, let's brighten things up with a swap!

Spring Fling Flirty Apron Swap
Deadline to Register:  March 31
NEW FAS Swappers Mail to Shawnee before:  April 21
All Others Mail After:  April 22
Mail Before:  April 30

Create a handmade "Spring Fling" apron – a special apron that has something on it related to a springtime theme – flowers, a cleaning apron, Easter,  or gardening.  In addition to the apron, please tuck-in three little gifts with your box, one for each letter of your partner's initials.

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 $10 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.


This is a short sign-up window, so I've got goodies for early registrants and those who share the info.

FIRST 12 REGISTRANTS:  Philly Cooking Crème Gift Bag
I had a House Party that didn't go as planned so YOU get the rewards, this fun little Philly Cooking Cremes gift package with notepad, magnet, recipe book, coupon to TRY the new Philly Cooking Creme, a HSN coupon, and a special wooden spoon.  I will mail a gift set to the first twelve registrants who ask for one!

It's great when you post our FAS15 badge on your blog or tweet/share this swap on Facebook.  Comment below if you do either one, and you will be entered to win a $15 Thirty One Gift Certificate from me.
 Thirty One is what I do when I'm not working full time in HR, volunteering, or swapping with you guys; I get to share 31's totes, purses, bags, kids gifts, and more with girlfriends at home parties or online parties.  Founded on the principles in Proverbs 31, I help busy women on-the-go combine their passion for fashion with their desire for organization. If you want to know more about Thirty One, just fill out this form.

After you register, head on over to the Apronista for a chance to win THIS hot apron from Purple Bee Designs!

Got somerging from Amy

I got my replacement apron and tuck ins from Amy. Thank you so much from the apron, tea towels, postcard book, The Quilters Legacy- can't wait to read it, green batik fq, tote bags and gel slippers. I love it. Will get pic posted once I charge camera. It was a wonderful surprise.

How's Shawnee .. Another swap ready?

Hey everyone! Just checking to see if Shawnee is doing ok? I've read her blog and saw she's super busy and also not feeling well. She hasn't posted in awhile on her personal blog and this is the LONGEST I've seen this blog go without a post.
I'm anxious to sign up for the next swap .. since I was unable to do the Cutie Pie Apron,,,, BUT ... more importantly .. I wanted to make sure everything was ok with Shawnee.
Has anyone heard from her??
