Next heART Swap: Nov 2012.
Sign up closes: DATE EXTENDED TO Nov 16th, 2012

Your heART really does make a difference and receiving a gorgeous creation through the mail makes even more of a difference to each and every person in our creative community who join the swap.

heART exchange is a global art swap to create, share & receive LOVE in the form of a gorgeous piece of artwork. Each person who joins the swap is given a partner to send their creation to and the only rule, is that you create with your heart energy and include a positive note for the recipient inside.

Giving and receiving is the constant flow of energy for our heart and what better way than to create, send and receive something beautiful and hand-made through your letter box.

Below is the flickr group with all the gorgeous creations so far through previous swaps

Each swap has a theme to help you hone in on your creativity and focus on a specific energy of the heart.

The next heART Swap is to take place Nov 2012

Sign up closes on Nov 16th.

The heART exchange theme is:

“my heART is full of gratitude”

So all you will need to do is create something from the heart and expressing gratitude. We are going to send out lots of heart energy. You can use any materials you like, paint, drawn, mould, sew – its totally up to you – whatever speaks to you from your heart.
