Swap & Tell #8 Linky Party

Welcome to Swap & Tell #8!
A link up for shop owners trading products and posting reviews!

This link up is all about helping one another get exposure for our products and services.

We have a very exciting announcement!
Swap & Tell has been revamped to be more inclusive!

not_just_for_shop_owners

We all know that advertising can be very expensive, so my co-host and I are so very happy to be offering shop owners a way to get your name out there to new audiences for the cost of a trade, while helping fellow shop owners in the process. And now if you have a blog or Facebook, but no product to swap, you can link up to receive products and post reviews. Speaking of co-hosts, I am pleased to be joined by Heather at Woods of Bell Trees . Heather has a unique and fun blog and personality, with a growing following. Be sure to pay her a visit! Your link will show on both blogs simultaneously, meaning more opportunities!

If you are just now finding out about Swap & Tell, you can read more about it here.

And now, on to the swap, but first, please read the rules:

*This link up is a SWAP so please only link up posts that contain a picture of an item you would like to swap and have fun shopping around!

*Link up a post from your blog, Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram that contains a picture and description of your swap item, using a permalink to your specific post or shop item.

*Visit the other links, find something you’d like to swap for, and leave the other person a comment with a link to your posted item.

*Exchange address info with your swap partner. Each person will pay shipping for the item she/he is sending.

*Please be prepared to ship your product no later than one week from the time the swap ends. (The timetable for services will be worked out between those swapping.)

*Product reviews should be posted no later than two weeks from the time the swap ends. (The review timetable for services will be worked out between those swapping.)

*The review should contain a photo of the product received; your own scoop on the product; and a link back to the product, shop or person (their choosing). (The review for services may or may not include a photo, details to be worked out between those swapping.)

*Please include the Swap & Tell button or text link back to your host in your linked post.

*Please Note: We have modified the link up to now allow participants to link directly from their Etsy shops!

* Please follow your host, Tarnished Royalty with one of the following methods:

*****If you are linking as a NON SHOP OWNER:*****

*You can link any post, with a blurb about Swap & Tell somewhere in the post.

*Visit the other links, find an item, and leave the person a comment that you would like to review their product.

And finally, have fun and remember, it’s all about promoting and helping one another. The value of the swap is in more than the products received, but in the exposure you will receive from reviews. A swap means a review for your product too!

Swap & Tell #7 Link Up + Orange Cantaloupe Soap Review

Welcome to Swap & Tell #7!
A link up for shop owners trading products and posting reviews!

This link up is all about helping one another get exposure for our products and services. We all know that advertising can be very expensive, so my co-host and I are so very happy to be offering a way to get your name out there to new audiences for the cost of a trade, while helping fellow shop owners in the process.

If you are just now finding out about Swap & Tell, you can read more about it here.

Swap & Tell has opened up opportunities for me to try out new products and meet some great people with small businesses. One such person is the very lovely Heather from Woods of Bell Trees. Not only is she a co-host of Swap & Tell, she has lots of fun jewelry in her Etsy shop and some delectable candles, soaps, body scrubs and tons of other smell-goods in her JewelScent line. Before we get to this week’s Swap & Tell link up, let’s have some show and tell! In our recent swap, Heather sent me a luscious bar of orange cantaloupe soap.

Ahhh, the aroma. I wish you had smell-o-vision. This soap and I have another date with a candle lit bath very soon. And guess what? When enough of the soap has been melted away, a hidden jewel will be waiting inside. Cool, huh?

Here are some more of Heather’s products to drool over:

She has some mad wire wrapping skills! And her photographs are beautiful. Note to self: ask Heather what camera she uses.

You can see and read more from Heather over at Woods Of Bell Trees.

Swap and Tell #5 Link Up + Tree of Life Review

Welcome to Swap & Tell #5!
A link up for shop owners trading products and posting reviews!

This link up is all about helping one another get exposure for our products and services. We all know that advertising can be very expensive, so my co-hosts and I are so very happy to be offering a way to get your name out there to new audiences for the cost of a trade, while helping fellow shop owners in the process.

If you are just now finding out about Swap & Tell, you can read more about it here.

I have already been so fortunate to become acquainted with new products and people through Swap & Tell that I otherwise wouldn’t have known about. Before we get to the link up, I would like to tell you about one such shop owner that I got to swap products with two weeks ago. Dan is a fellow jewelry designer who specializes in Celtic knot work. His shop D & O Celtic Jewelry is stocked with crosses and other beautiful designs. The history and symbolism represented by each of his designs is fascinating.

Here I am wearing the Tree of Life necklace that I received.

tree_of_life2
tree_of_life3
According to D & O Celtic Jewelry, the Tree of Life, an ancient symbol from mythology, religion, and science, is referenced in dozens of different cultures all over the world. The Tree of Life design I am wearing has the tree contained within a circle. It symbolizes death and rebirth, and how all life is related. Simply beautiful!

Some of his other designs I heart:
Fatherhood-Bronze-2-197x197 Claddagh-Necklace-197x197
The Celtic Internal Cross Knot Necklace, sometimes called the Fatherhood knot. I love how the cross is on the inside of it in the negative space.

And the Claddagh necklace, which, according to D & O dates back to the 17th Century in Ireland. It is named after the fishing village of Claddagh, which was just outside Galway, Ireland. The Claddagh symbol contains hands holding a heart which is adorned with a crown in most versions. It is said the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty. You can see more D & O Celtic Jewelry designs and read their very interesting story here.

And now, on to the swap!
