Hurry now, don't be late - send your Valentine partner a tote and note for swap number 9!

Back by popular demand! Since the previous ones have been so fun and have a lot of requests to make continue with the series. I thought I would let us gather one for a Valentine partner.

** Simple a Tote & a Note** The note can be about you, your crafting passion, your hometown, a recipie, anything you may have in common with your partner, etc........I have met many people all over with these swaps and hope to see you join in.

With these swaps we are working together to get rid our world of those nasty plastic bags one swap at a time. Your totes can range as low as $2.00 to $5.00 but really should be any more than that.

Totes can be handmade or store bought. They are available in cloth that is recycled plastic, denim, and canvas. You can buy them at any store, I have seen them at Michaels, Target, TJ Maxx, Nugget Supermarket, Trader Joes, your local markets and each of them is adorable. They are available at musuems, parks, and so on! ** I have the minimum rating to join at 4.98 **

I have seen some lovely sewn totes and all you sewers are making me jealous with envy! : ) So hurry and sign up. Simply include a note for your partner sharing something fun and off you go to the postal office.

Sorry this go around, no newbies - I had to angel too many for newbies last go around.

Hope to see you all on board and let's work together to save our environment. One swap at a time.

So the tote has to be a Valentine themed one?

On my watchlist - love these swaps.

Just found a really easy patchwork sewn tote with a heart in the center in the January issue of Create and Decorate - great magazine for sewing & crafts

WOO HOO!!!! I have been waiting for you to host another Tote/Note Swap. I'm in.... :-)

Yes it should be Valentine themed. That is the fun part - you can send one with hearts or chocolate, cupid and so on.

Donnaleesmons - that sound so darn cute. I just made mine and am excited to share it!

Boopgirly - these should be grocery size totes at least.

I am new and have completed a swap but haven't received feedback yet. Too bad for me! This would be nice to join.

:( I wanted to join. It is quite difficult to find a swap that I'm interested in that is open to a "newbie". I thought this would be the one.

Just wondering..... if we got a tote from micheals and decorated it with rhinestones or iron on patches, would that be acceptable? Combiine crafty with store bought :)
