y’all i am so excited.
seriously – there are few things better than fall time and getting gifts.
which both will be happening when you sign up for the etsy swap!
this will be our THIRD swap and megan and i could not be more thrilled to have so many people join in each round! we started this thing a year ago and the first swap was a little small (you awesome few you!). the second swap more than tripled in size – and we knew, this had to be a twice a year thing!
we are all about blessing others with snail mail and supporting small businesses.
plus it’s nice to open up something besides bills, am i right?
if you have other questions feel free to check out the etsy swap page!

1 | do i have to be a blogger to participate?
NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS: we will be pairing up all international participants with each other unless there are U.S. participants who are also willing to ship internationally.
2 | what is the price range?
we’ve settled on $25 – but you’re welcomed to spend a little more.
3 | do i send anything more than what i’ve purchased off of etsy?
you don’t have to – but we’ve noticed that since the start of the swap everyone adds in a little something. extra (target’s dollar spot, you’re favorite coffee/tea sample, a little sweet treat, etc). we highly suggest sending a personalized note to help connect with the person you’re swapping with!
4 | am i sending/receiving from the same person?
this is more of a secret santa style swap. this way you get to know two people – the one you’re sending something to and the one who sends you something!
5 | should i contact the person i’m sending to?
if you don’t have to – dont.
part of the fun is the mystery!
we will provide you with their contact information in case there is a miscommunication or you’ve shipped late (try not to!) that way your swap partner is informed!
6 | i never received my etsy product / i’m not happy with what i received.
ugh, we dislike this very much, but unfortunately it happens. we sometimes have people sign up who don’t follow through on their commitments and it really ruins the experience for others. we try our best to make sure everyone understands their commitment prior to signing up – you are given a partner, a price range, and a list of likes – we hope for you to lovingly follow through on your end. please remember that with any sign-up you run the risk of having a flaky partner and you might not receive your gift. the best we can do is ask you to be a woman/man of your word and follow through with your commitment.
if you are not happy with what you’ve received, we are super sorry! try to put a positive spin on it – you sent out an awesome package to your partner and were a blessing to them!
