Rosette swap ...

How many rosettes did you fall in love with in the past few days over at the French Cupboard's Rosette Blog Party? 
Every single one ... as expected!
 So, if you've been following along ... today I'm announcing the start of a "Rosette Swap" {... and giveaway!}

The swap is open to all 
active bloggers and rosette addicts!! 
The challenge is to create or find a beautiful rosette to exchange with another fellow bloggin' rosette lovin' addict. We can all help each other out with a little "fix" ... and then we'll party like we love to do!
Does it sound good to you? 
Keep on reading ....

 Sign~ups will be open for two weeks, I will close the sign~ups on Sunday, August 1st {midnight est}
You'll be paired up with one swap partner and I will email you your partner's information by Wednesday, August 4th.

You will need to send your rosette out to your swap partner by Wednesday, August 18th.
That will give you two more weeks {plenty of time} to get your package out to your partner on time.

Finally ... two more weeks later ... on the 1st of September, we will have a swap blog party to show off and share our special surprises we have received from our partners!!

To sign up, email me at: gypsybrocante@gmail.com 
Just copy and paste the following info when signing up:

1. Name and Address:

2: Blog address:

3. Email address:

I will add a list of Rosette swap participants linked to their blogs on my blog sidebar once I have received your information ... if you have sent me all of your info and do not see your name on the blogroll, please let me know ... this way you can be doubly assured you are entered into the swap.
