Hi sweet swappers,
I've made a couple of changes on the blog, if you haven't noticed, including changing up the name to "The Apronista Swaps" (but the URL is the same). I've been running the Apronista for the past year and am trying to align everything up so I'm not so scattered (good luck, right?!). Plus, I really enjoyed our non-apron swaps like the Table Runner and Secret Santa so wanted to broadening the swapping possibilities.
My original plan was to start up a spring-time swap for either another table runner or something else domestic BUT I'm troubled about our last swap. I had so many gals who either mailed SUPER late or not at all AND either didn't answer my emails any more or did email but lied about their packages. I'm quite unsettled and a bit discouraged, to be frank. This would be my fifth year running swaps but I don't know if I can do it again. There's a lot of time, energy, and money involved in hosting/angeling swaps, even when everyone follows the rules.
Just wanted to put out an update. Still thinking about you all, just trying to gather the energy to decide what's next. In the meantime, I'm setting up a few fun things over at the Apronista so I hope you'll visit me there, too. I really appreciate it when you comment on my posts or if you enter a giveaway so my sponsors know that I really DO have readers. =) Plus, who doesn't like to win cute stuff??
