etsy swap 2014 | spring fever

Taking Steps Home
welcome to spring fever, etsy lovers! amy and i are over-the-moon excited to host our 2nd etsy swap this spring!  we had such a great experience the first time around, and are hoping you'll join us again this year. if it's your first time here, you're probably like "what the heck is an etsy swap?" well, let me give you a hint, friend! if you love etsy, snail mail, and making new friends, you will love this swap!
 
so how exactly does this magic happen?  you will sign up via the form below, be sure to enter as much info as you can, and we will email you with your mission. you will be assigned to another participant, and someone else will be assigned to you. so it's like this round robin game of gift giving. sounds exciting, right??

>> etsy swap timeline: 

2/28 |  sign ups close
3/4   |  swap partners will be emailed out. email me if you have not received your mission by 3/5.
3/17 |  deadline to mail off your package
4/3   |  link up

>> price range:  $25 

>> a little more information: 

+ this swap is open to everyone! you do not have to be a blogger to participate :)
+ grab our button and share it on your blog!
+ remember your partner isn't supposed to know who you are until your package arrives! we're all about being creepy fun over here!
+ once you get your partner's information, make sure you look through all their social media links (blog, pinterest, etsy, instagram, etc.) to get an idea of their style.
+ commit to the price range - no one wants to get gypped ;)
+ please make sure you mail your package out ON or BEFORE the deadline. if you happen to run late please let us know.
+don't forget to link up with us on April 3rd!

Ooo I'm excited! Quick question! If we have our own Etsy shop, are we allowed to gift some goodies from our own shops too? If it looks like something that they'd like of course!
