AND ALSO ANNOUNCING. . . . . .

Now for the 2nd part of this post.  I am also announcing my newest swap.
The 2nd annual Vintage Christmas in July swap.
last year we had so much fun with this.  I will partner you with someone I feel you would be great with.  I loved my swap last year.  Here are the rules for this swap.  Ship date is July 27, 2011 and be sure to include lots of Vintage or vintage inspired goodness!  First you need to send 1 handmade ornament and send another ornament that must be true vintage.  After that, you can send whatever you want, but please try to keep it vintage or vintage inspired.
Here is a portion of what I received last year in the vintage Christmas Swap.  I had a fabulous partner. Kimberly of Art Joy Stuff!  If you want to get in on the swap then comment here and tell me your interested, and then email me your info.

So wonderful. I want to enter, if I can or is this not possible because I live far away?

Also the swap. Fun idea. It would be awesome to swap with someone. True vintage means a old thing that I have not touched right?
