Swap time again! Hopefully you are all wrapped up and ready to move on. If not, just do your best to get things finalized (we understand that life sometimes gets in the way of deadlines – especially having BABIES). For those of you that missed the last swap, be sure to check out the links below and see what sort of booty was shared between homeschool mamas. Even though there are only a few, I’m sure it will inspire you to join us this time!
Ready to swap, sisters?
Here are the latest swap links that were emailed to us from happy swappers (a few are from past swaps that were accidentally turned in late):
LATEST SWAP HIGHLIGHTS:
Krystal’s Swap Gift (2/17)
Cari’s Swap Gift (2/10)

Yours not listed here? Email or comment with a link and we’ll add it! It is never too late! People still like to click back and see all the gifts, so by all means – share!
Are YOU interested in getting a groovy care-package in the mail (instead of bills)? Then leave a comment below to let us know you want to participate. It’s ever so easy. Make sure to leave a valid email address. We’ll send you a questionnaire form and pair you with another swapper. When you get your gift, just take a picture of it and post about it on your blog. How easy is that?!
Be sure to put the dates below on your calendar and make sure you don’t forget them!
Here’s the schedule:
SIGN UP: By Feb 25th
PAIRED UP: By Feb 28th
MAIL SWAP: By March 18th
POST PHOTOS: By March 25th
EMAIL LINKS TO ME: By April 1st
NEXT SWAP: April 8th
Sign up by February 25th (next Friday), then get your present in the mail by mid-March. Photograph your loot when it arrives and post a thank you on your blog… then email us the link! Our next sign-up won’t be until April 2011. Mark your dates on your calendars! I know everyone is busy, but please try and not spoil the fun for your partner by dropping the ball.
Don’t know what a swap is? Click on the ‘Saturday Swap’ Category on our sidebar and see some of our past swaps. Our very first one was October 2007.
Important: Stumble, facebook and tweet this post (our twitter account is @hsbapost) to help gather up all the swap-loving homeschoolers you know!
We hope you’ll join in the fun! Spread the news and ask your homeschool friends to join.
Here are the basic rules for every swap:
1. Don’t offer to participate and sign up if you can’t get the gift in the mail on time (you have 2 months).
2. Don’t spend more than 15$ on your swap gift (not including postage). You will end up making your buddy feel like they didn’t give enough to you.
3. Get to know your swap buddy. Pray for them! Send them a Bible verse! Email them! Etc.!
4. Do NOT share your swap buddies’ personal information (last names or addresses) with anyone else.
5. Make sure you post a photo and ‘Thank You’ for your swap sister – thanking her and linking to her blog.
6. Email me a copy of your swap post link so I can showcase it for the following month!
Suggestion: Please make sure you take extra care when packaging your gifts if they are breakable or fragile. We have had swap gifts damaged by UPS or the Postal Service!
