Summer Apron Swap -- ALOHA!

Well, summer weather has FINALLY hit Oregon and I'm feeling SO much better.  Work seems like we're almost through the mad rush of the end of the school year and other not-so-fun stuff due to budget problems, so I'm getting home a little earlier, too, and starting to feel alive in the evenings (and my family is grateful).  But enough about me .... this is about sewing Adorable and Flirty APRONS!!

Here are details:

Deadline to Register: June 30
NO NEW SWAPPERS this round - sorry
Mail Between: July 16 - 23

Create an amazing "Aloha Apron" – a special apron that makes you think of the islands, of beaches, of summer! Please include some inexpensive summer goodies to make a fun package (minimum of $10 in value in the tuck-ins).

If you sign up, you are agreeing to send 2-day priority and get a tracking number for delivery confirmation, post lots of pictures, and send me messages when you send and when you receive. Fun, huh??

Head over to the Flirty Apron Swap blog for more info and to register!

REGISTER NOW - Spring Fling Apron Swap

 Now is the time to register for the next round of the Flirty Apron Swap.  If you love to sew cute and flirty aprons, this swap is for YOU!!  I cannot believe how fast winter flew by, and today is the first FULL DAY of spring.  Now, I know in some parts of the country, the weather still feels very cold and dreary.  So, let's brighten things up with a swap!

Spring Fling Flirty Apron Swap
Deadline to Register:  March 31
NEW FAS Swappers Mail to Shawnee before:  April 21
All Others Mail After:  April 22
Mail Before:  April 30

Create a handmade "Spring Fling" apron – a special apron that has something on it related to a springtime theme – flowers, a cleaning apron, Easter,  or gardening.  In addition to the apron, please tuck-in three little gifts with your box, one for each letter of your partner's initials.

Items must be handcrafted, new from the store, or thrifted (but only if they are in “better than new” condition). Plan on spending a minimum of $10 on tuck-ins in addition to your apron and postage (boxes MUST be sent 2-day priority w/tracking). Then, make this a special box – gift wrapping, bows, the whole nine yards!

Include a note identifying yourself with your email and blog address so your partner can contact you with her grateful thanks.

This is a short sign-up window, so I've got goodies for early registrants and those who share the info.

FIRST 12 REGISTRANTS:  Philly Cooking Crème Gift Bag
I had a House Party that didn't go as planned so YOU get the rewards, this fun little Philly Cooking Cremes gift package with notepad, magnet, recipe book, coupon to TRY the new Philly Cooking Creme, a HSN coupon, and a special wooden spoon.  I will mail a gift set to the first twelve registrants who ask for one!

It's great when you post our FAS15 badge on your blog or tweet/share this swap on Facebook.  Comment on the Flirty Apron Swap blog if you do either one, and you will be entered to win a $15 Thirty One Gift Certificate from me.
 Thirty One is what I do when I'm not working full time in HR, volunteering, or swapping with you guys; I get to share 31's totes, purses, bags, kids gifts, and more with girlfriends at home parties or online parties.  Founded on the principles in Proverbs 31, I help busy women on-the-go combine their passion for fashion with their desire for organization. If you want to know more about Thirty One, just fill out this form.

After you register, head on over to the Apronista for a chance to win THIS hot apron from Purple Bee Designs!
