Ok I want to host my second swap on this board my first one when so well. Ok here is my idea. A holiday/Season swap. There will be groups of 13 as many as we have people to fill them. I was think that one person fills up a goodie bag of their holiday of choice for each person in their group. Here are the groups, I can add or change if someone does not celebrate it.

This can be anything in your supplies or new or homemade items. Give what you want to get. You can list what you are giving if you want to just let everyone see it when they get it. I think I got all the holidays. If people want to add more like motherís day and fathers day type holidays let me know I just tried to pick the bigger ones that always have stuff in the scrapbook stores

DUE DATE: JUNE 1, 2007


Group 1

New Years-
Valentines Day- Shaukc
St. Patrick Day-
Easter- Jo-JO
4 of July- Mommaidwf
Halloween- Janice- hostess
Thanksgiving - Jo-Jo
Christmas- Crafty Grandmommie
Birthdays- cats0116
Spring- 2girls'mom
Summer- Crafty Grandmommie
Fall - Ziggy
Winter- cats0116



Set up two groups wishful thinking. Tell me what you think. Janice

I dont get on this site much. but I really liked your egg swap and cant wait to get the eggs back. This is a nice idea. I love the due date. My due date is the 13 so I will have my stuff in by then. http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Can you put me down for Easter and Halloween. My bags will be a mix of stuff. some bought and some handmade. Now I have one more thing on my list before the baby comes. But this should be great for her book knock out all the holidays.

Hi! New to this site, but this swap sounds interesting. Please explain what you do, how this works or anything a newbie needs to know to do this.

Kathy, I'll answer for Janice because I know she's been quite busy the past couple of days. What you do is pick a holiday that is not yet taken. You would then make a baggie for each other person in your group that contains items based on the holiday that you picked. When you are done, you mail them back to Janice (she'll make a Private Message soon with her address). She will swap these out ~ you will get back one bag from all the other holidays. Hope this makes sense to you! If not, just ask!

Thanks Mommaidwf, Sorry ladies I have been so busy with taxes. My hubby has a small business and well... of course he is gone. And i am working on this alone and not sure what is what with out him telling me who he pays for what...get all that. so I have been stressed.

Kathy- basicly everything mommaidwf said and the items you put in the bag can be hand made, or from a store. Just give what you would like to get. so it what you feel is fair.

like I have Halloween so I was thinking about: making a few tags

and giving everyone a foot of a few different ribbons with so many in a group I feel that it is better ( and cheaper) to get a few different ribbons so a yard of ribbon- 3 different 1 foot pieces.

stickers

eyelets

things like that--- I hope that helps.

you know I thought I had signed up for this one. Maybe Janice was just trying to talk me into it. I was going to look through my fall things because I bought the fall stack and a few other fall things but didn't take a lot of pics and haven't done anythin with the pics I had!

LOL so put me in the fall section http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I remember us chatting about it. Thanks for joining us Ziggy.


Come on people this should be fun... Anyone else.

Just think you could get stuff for every holiday and get all those pages done. You would be able to do a year of pages with just one swap or use the stuff on cards. Remember does not have to be store bought, you dont have to give everyone the same items as long as it fit with your group. incase you dont have 13 Easter tags or the same color items. Hope that helps.

Ok if it's OK with everyone to make it due June 1st, I'll take spring.


Oh wait! One more question, will you take Canadian cash or PayPal for return postage? It's just way too difficult for me to get a money order or US $$.

Thanks!

Janice, would you mind changing me from Christmas to Summer if it is still available? Actually, why don't you put me down for both.
