"Amour Valentine Swap"

I am really all jazzed up about 2010 and this fresh New decade we are in, how about you??
To start things off for me I entered a "Amour Valentine Swap" that Cathy from Treasured-heirlooms and Elegance & Whimsy is hosting. If you are interested, please visit Cathy's blog at
Here are the Details:
Here's how the swap will work. Easy, Peezy, Fun

1. Grab the "Amour Valentine Swap" image and place it on your blog sidebar linking it back to my blog (

2. Post on your blog about the swap and encourage friends to join in.

3. If you would like to participate, email me at this email address: ~
Subject line: Valentine Swap
~ with the following information.

a. Your name and home address
b. Your Email address (where I can contact you with your swap partner)

c. Your blog URL

d. Your choice of what color you would like your "Amour" swap box.
e. Choose one of the following:

*Shades of Pink

*Shades of Red


*Shades of White
*Any color is fine

4. Would you mind shipping outside of U.S. if necessary?


1. You will need to purchase a LARGE (appx. 8"wx6"h±), heart-shaped, cardboard box from your local craft store (Michaels, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby.)
I heard from Cathy today(01~02~2010) and a Round or Square box with these dimensions would be OK too.

2. Be sure your box has plenty of room to fill up with "Love Treasures".

3. Email and introduce yourself to your blog partner.

4. Create your "Amour box" with your imagination and your own particular style. It doesn't necessarily have to be a Valentine theme, but it has to be pretty and it has to be made with the color choice of your partner.

GENEROUSLY fill your "Amour Box" with lots of treasures from your heart. Most of you have participated in many swaps over the years so you already know what to put in the box. If this is your first time, email me for suggestions on filling up your "Amour Box". If you have something that doesn't fit in the box, wrap it pretty and send it along with your package.

6. Beautifully wrap your creation before packing so your Partner will be able to take lots of pretty photos once she opens the outside box.

7. Take lots and lots of photos for our reveal day, Sunday, February 14th.

8. You have three weeks to create and mail your "Amour" box. Make sure your package arrives to your swap partner NO LATER THAN, February 5th so she can enjoy it for awhile before Valentine's Day arrives.

On Sunday, February 14th, Valentine's Day, post all your photos and the name of your swap partner.

I will have a list here of all the participating blogs.


I will be filling up Coeur d'Alene this week with Romantic treasures so please stop by!
TTFN, Nancy
