The Charming Travelers!


Alright! It's just about time to go enter the next stop of the Charming Travelers! Did you read about this charm swap during my Giveaway Week? If you missed it you can read more about it here

I'm super excited to follow this around the US (and blogland) and see all the places it lands up! Have you ever wondered all the places your dollar bill has been? It's kind of the same thing. Or I guess it's more like that traveling gnome that is in every picture around the world. I figure if I can't get out and travel, I might as well travel vicariously through one of my favorite things: fabric! :) I found an awesome map of the US (googled it), and as winners get picked I'll mark the next location... as well as list the blog so you can always know where to go if you want it to make a stop at your front door!

In order for this to work I'm hoping everyone will abide by just a few rules. (really, who likes rules? but they keep it fun, so let's all play nice). ;)

  • winners must be active bloggers
  • you must reside in the US (ONLY the blue pack is traveling throughout Canada as well as the US - you must be willing to ship to either country to enter that giveaway.)
  • before sending the charm pack off to the next winner, there must be 56 - 5" x 5" squares of fabric inside - please no yucky fabrics
  • to help keep the map updated, winners will fill out the quick and easy form to let me know where you are!
  • if the charm pack arrives full of unwanted charms, let me know and we'll clear it out and fill it back up with some more beautiful fabrics!
That's it! not too scary right?!

Here's the form:
(for the WINNERS only - to get a chance to win the charm pack you'll need to stop at the current blogs to enter their giveaway! I'll keep a running list of where it's at and when the giveaways are up. As well as do update posts on my blog so you don't have to keep checking this post all the time. This form is ONLY to let me know where it's at so I can help spread the word!)
