Clean swap!

It’s time for another swap! Our theme is clean, so please keep that in mind when selecting items for your partner. As usual, please limit your gifts to what can fit in a shoebox.

Please read the following details carefully.

1. In order to participate, you must either have swapped successfully with us before, or you must be a regular commenter on one of our blogs (The Homespun Heart/with all that I’ve been given). We have many people write and ask what qualifies a regular commenter. You don't need to comment daily, or even weekly, but we need to recognize your name when you sign up.

Before you send us an e-mail, please consider if you have the time and resources to fulfill your swap. Every time, we have at least one person who writes to say they’ll be late in sending their box because they can’t afford the shipping. We want to respect your financial situation, and ask that you consider joining in next time instead so no one is disappointed.

2. You need to fill out your questionnaire as part of the sign-up. In order to sign up for this swap, please e-mail with the following info:

complete mailing address
e-mail address
blog site, if you have one

If you would be willing to ship internationally, please indicate that specifically. If you don't mention it, we'll assume it's your preference to ship within the U.S.

Also, please answer the following questions in your sign-up e-mail. The more thorough your answers, the better we can match you with someone complementary.

What is your favorite and least favorite household task?
What scent says "clean" to you?
If you had a "clean schedule" for a day (a day of free time!), how would you choose to spend it?
How would you rank the cleanliness of your house overall on a scale of 1-10? Do you wish it was a different ranking?
What would make cleaning/household tasks more enjoyable for you?
What is your favorite cleaning or organizing tip?

Sign-up entries must be complete to be included. Even if you’ve swapped with us before, please send all of the information requested above.

Important dates to consider:
Sign-ups due by 8 a.m. (CST) Friday, January 30, or when 40 people have signed up.
Partner info will be e-mailed to you by Tuesday, February 3.
Please send your shoebox by Monday, February 24.

If you have not received an e-mail with partner info from us by February 6, please check your “junk” folder, and then contact us if needed.

Thanks, and happy swapping!
