Heartfelt Apologies!

Sweet Goodness Heart Swappers--
We apologize, we missed a few swappers on our list from the looks of our comments in the last post!! Please check your in box now if you were missing your partner info, we do believe we have everyone's information taken care of now. However, there are a couple messages that keep returning with delivery failure so there may be someone left without a partner info still.

IF BY SOME CHANCE there is still a swapper out there that has not heard from us, please email me (lucy) directly at:

johl3 at windstream dot net

or leave a comment on one of our blogs (links found on the sidebar).

If you and your partner need a couple extra days to complete because of this delay-please touch base with one another to confirm on an agreeable time frame.

We hope that you all get to know your partner during this swap and have lots of creative fun with it!!!

Please post photo's of your package sent and or received on Flickr:


You must join the group to upload photos. After joining, upload your photos to your flickr page. After uploading photos, go to your flickr page. Click on the photo(s) you want to add to the group. At the top, there will be a button that says "Add to Group" when you click on that, your groups should appear. Click on the SGS Heart Swap link and it will send to the group. You can add a description by clicking under the picture. A yellow box will appear that will allow you to write details about your photo.

Thank you again for all of your patience while we sort out the swap list!!!

Hanging Hearts Valentines Day Swap!

Happy New Year! We're back and ready for a great year of swapping in 2008! Didn't think you'd hear from us so soon, heh? Well Lucy and I now have TWICE the amount of help and we're off to a bang up start!

Leigh Ann will be joining us again now that she's all set up in her new home in Kansas and please welcome our newest Goodness Girl, Heidi! So look out swappers, you've got a load of crafty women over here ready to get your creative juices flowing! (and let me tell you, the ideas already being discussed for future swaps are amazing!)

And the first swap of 2008 is . . .


Sign up by: Friday January 11th (hurry up!)

Partner names will be sent out by Tuesday January 15th

Send out by: Monday February 4th

Description: You will send your partner one Hanging Heart Valentine! Be creative! You can use any media as long as your Valentine is smaller than 8x10. We want to keep this a quick and easy swap, aim to fit your valentine into a small box or padded envelope.

Your Valentine doesn't even have to be a heart, just something related to the holiday that your partner can display by hanging. Ideas: fabric hearts, paper hearts, dolls, mixed media collages, fabric post cards, you name it! If you can attach a ribbon to it and call it a Valentine it will work. :) (And we know you'll most likely include a heart on it somewhere.) This is your chance to really put your brain to work and come up with something unique!

Colors: You can do the traditional colors of Valentine's Day or be creative and shake it up a bit like pink and aqua or pink and brown. (Rebecca's personal favorite!)

Open to: All swappers! As this will be a fast and fun swap anyone can join. Just PLEASE remember that if you sign up you MUST complete the swap ON TIME. Please please see the sidebar for details.

Please email us at to sign up! Remember to let us know if you are willing to ship internationally should we have any overseas participants. Postage should be low on this swap!

Swap button and Flickr groups to come!

Cheers ~
