Swap name: Trade Crafty Supplies: Back to School Bonanza
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  Oops Creations
Date to send item by: Friday September 1st (Send it before the Labor Day weekend) (PM me if you absolutely can not send by this Friday, deadline extenstions may be available)


Details of swap:

Trade Crafty Supplies: Back to School Bonanza

Clean out those closets for a "back to school bonanza" of craft supplies
and fill a FLAT-RATE US Postal Service box with as much as you can jam in and send it to your partner (Don't forget the Delivery Confirmation). 

Gently Used supplies are fine, if not encouraged-- take this opportuntity to start the Fall/ New House/ Back to School season with a clean(er) craft closet. Because of the special type of box (only $8.10 plus delivery confirmation) this is limited to US participants only. sorry

There are 2 sizes, both are free at your local post office. I personally think you can fit more stuff in the flat one.

Lots of people have paper craft, yarn and jewelry supplies. 

I will do my best to "match" people up to the supplies if they answer the questionaire.

I love these kinds of swaps-- i just filled my box with some great craft bits--- so much that I could hardly close the box.

Sign-up today and tell a friend Smiley  Grin

Yeah, I too am nervous about what I will get back...just HOPING it's stuff I actually need and will use soon!

I think just getting NEW stuff will inspire us though...to quickly turn it into something cool (instead of looking at the same old boring supplies forever!)

Okay as of 11:30 am EST on Monday August 28th.  You have partners posted (first page) and you have been PM'ed with their information.

I tried my best to pair people up with people that could/use appreciate their crafty supplies.  Do your best, but please don't go out and buy things just because somebody wanted a particular style of jewelry finding or something.  The point of this is to clean out those closets.

Enjoy.  Remember to send out a PM with DC#'s.  there will not be a reminder email because the send out date is THIS FRIDAY. Consider this your reminder to ship.  I hope everyone will have get great packages
