Announcing the Sweet Candy Box Swap

Well, Valentine's Day is one month from today.  I thought I better announce "The Sweet Vintage Candy Box Swap" for Valentine's Day.  It will be also posted on the Flickr group site of the Honey Pot's Vintage swap.  Here are the rules . . . . . . . .  In the interest of time this swap will be open until Sunday January 20th.  At that time I will assign partners.
Anyone who joins this swap must realize that you have to have your swap to your partner no later that Thursday February 8th, 2013, so they can enjoy it for Valentine's Day!  That is in about 3 and a half weeks from right now, so that means you will have to post accordingly.

1.  Take a candy box like the one below (or similar)

 It DOES NOT have to be a Whitman's Sampler box, just a candy box of some sort, or a box similar in size.  Or it can even be a heart shaped candy box.   Decorate it up for Valentines.  Think vintage and make it something you would love to receive in the mail.  Fill it up with scrapbook supplies, embellishments, vintage goodies, and probably chocolate (lol) and keep it light weight so it won't be such an expense to ship.

2.  Make or handcraft at least one item to put in the box.  Here is the one I have decorated.  I have already been planning on what I will put in it.

3.  Absolutely do not join in on this swap if you cannot deliver on time!  PLEASE DON'T DO THAT TO YOUR PARTNER.  It is very rude and not good swapping practice.  Some people burn their bridges and become known as a bad partner.  I am sorry to be so harsh, but I have had some bad experiences with some people who have joined in on my swaps.  If you have a problem after you have joined and won't be able to follow through please be courteous and let me know.  I don't want anyone to not get their package.  Please be prompt, do your best work and give something you would be tickled beyond measure to get!

4.  Please email me at askm_mac@yahoo.com with all of your info.   Name and physical address, blog address and your likes and dislikes.  You have one week to decide. but again Please don't join this swap unless you are sure that you can follow through!


  1. Oh, sign me up! I am going to tell all my friends! :)

  2. Laurie shared you swap info with me b/c she knows I love swaps!! ;-)
    I would love to join in the fun and will email my info. Thanks!!

  3. Your box is so pretty. It looks like something a Victorian lady would have used to store her love letters.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a art-filled day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie
