Traveling Stash Update!

Hello!  :)

Hope you've had a wonderful week! I hate to do this but I need to remind those of you participating in the Traveling Stash boxes that by entering the giveaways for the boxes you are agreeing to the rules which include:

  1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
  2. There is a note in the box that logs where the box has been. Please add your info and place the note back in the box.
  3. There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box. 
  4. You may take anything you like from the box. Just replace every item with comparable quilt shop quality items equal to the amount taken.
  5. Ship the box to the next person in a reasonable amount of time.
  6. Due to the amount of postage shipping is only within the USA.
I've highlighted areas that need to be addressed. When you receive a box you need to post about receiving it and the giveaway asap. The rules state "in a timely manner". This should be no more than one week. I know sometimes life gets in the way. We all have those times. I'm only asking that if you don't think you will be able to get the boxes posted and sent back on their way in a "timely manner" to please don't enter the giveaways. The boxes are always traveling and moving so there will be plenty of chances for them to come visit you when the time is better. Personally I had a lucky month and won two within a manner of days a little while ago. While it was great it was also kind of overwhelming. Two boxes to go through. Two boxes to replace items in. Then the expense of mailing two boxes out. I've learned my lesson and now I don't enter every giveaway. I would really appreciate your help with this. I don't mind keeping track of where these boxes are but I really don't like having to bother people and remind them to keep them moving. It would really be great if you guys could just do your part to keep this a fun experience. Afterall the quicker the boxes move around the more people there will be who get to participate! Thanks!  :)
