ANNOUNCING! The Vintage Petite Jar Spring Swap!

Looking for a fun little Spring swap?  You have come to the right place.  Guaranteed to be loads of fun.  You would be swapping with one partner.  This is what we will be swapping. . . . .
Here is a 8 oz. 3.6" canning jar, decorated and stuffed with lots of Spring goodness.  
can be this kind (kerr or Ball)
                                    or this quilted patterned jar with one ring and one dome lid.
So below are the rules and details.  
1.  Decorate 1 8 oz. jar and fill it with little vintage things like spools, doilies, lace buttons, sewing notions, ephemera scrapbook embellies, etc. and can be Easter stuff too.  Make it special!  Please make this jar and contents be something you would be absolutely thrilled to receive.  You would be amazed at how much stuff you can cram into one of these little jars. You can get really creative with the decorating of the jar, and the contents, but please make sure it is either Spring, easter, etc. If you don't have a canning jar, but have a jar that it approx. the same size it is Okay, but preferably would like them to all be the same if possible.  Please have at least half of what you put in the jar be vintage.
You will be assigned 1 partner, and mail out date is April 1, 2012 and the deadline for swappers sign-ups will be March 17, 2012, and notification of partners will be March 19th.

2.  Comment on this blog post, and then email me to    ask@comnett.net   and put in the subject line:  Vintage Spring Swap.  Hope we can get lots of partners.  This time of year I just love looking for new swaps to join in on,  I did find any, so decided to host one myself.  
3.  Please include all your information in the email like your name, mailing address, blog (if any) and email address.  Thanks so much.  I hope you will join us!

Oh no, oh no, oh no. I missed it!
My crafting supplies are still in boxes after the move, so I guess I couldn't have played along, but it looks like it was a fun one, Michele!
