<< sign ups for the 2016 swap are now closed! mark your calendars now to join us in 2017. >>
i'm so excited to put this swap together -- most of you have been with me from the beginning and it just doesn't feel like the new year until we're all busy exchanging addresses! read on for all the details -- and if this is your first time, welcome!
>> sign up by entering your information
on this form by january 18. (sign ups are now closed.)
>> watch for an email from me by january 25, containing your swap partners' details. you'll be put in a group with 4 or 5 other swappers, and each of you will create and send valentines to each other. you will receive only US-based partners unless you specify otherwise on the form.
>> make your valentines! they can be as simple or complex as you want -- some people send hand-stamped paper cards, others put together packages of goodies, but there's no wrong way to do it as long as you've got a handmade element!
>> put your valentines in the mail no later than february 3 so your recipients receive something before valentines day.
>> share pictures of your valentines on instagram with the hashtag #handmadeval. you can follow me at @lyndseywells, where i'll share some of my favorites too.
