Am I the only one who needs to take the whole sleeping-8-hours advice a bit more serious? Cheesy
If not: wouldn't it be fun with a sleepy-time swap?

Pillow cases
Sleep masks
Night caps
Sleep enhancing/relaxing recipes (?)
Bed time music mix CD
Pyjamas
Slippers
Night time reading material


... to make from scratch, re-construct, embroider, draw, write, paint, print upon.
Cheesy YES?

I am an extremely busy Mom of 6, so I barely get 8! Anything that would make my 4-6 hours more plesant would be great. i think this is a super idea. d Cool

This sounds like fun, but I'd need to know the deadline before committing fully.

Hi! It sounds like alot of fun and I would love to participate, but I've never done a swap before. So I think I would have to complete one first, depending on the rules. Let me know? I'll bookmark this thread and keep an eye on it! Smiley

Hey sleepless friends, it looks like we have ourselves a ZzzZZzz-swap! Wink

For all info on swapping there is this really helpful guide, take a look-see at it and all your swappy questions will be gone:

http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html

First time swappers must have been a member for 1 month, and posted 15 times. Second time swappers need to get feedback on the first swap before getting into a new one. Remember: Last day for signing up for this one will be around October 8:th, so chances are you'll be able to get that feedback and post the 15 posts before that. Cheesy

I'm thinking that the number of participants will decide how the swap runs (unless something else is decided), like so:

EVEN:
Lisa <---> Olga
Ruth <---> Jenny
Kate <---> Ana

UNEVEN:
Lisa ---> Olga
Olga ---> Ruth
Ruth ---> Jenny
Jenny ---> Anna
Anna ---> Lisa

Any more interested? The more the merrier! Also: anyone have any more ideas on what ZzzZzzZzZ-related crafts to make? Let's brainstorm!!
Wink

I'm interested - I have a mean pattern for an eye mask . . . ooops, nobody read that!  I didn't ruin the surprise! Cheesy

I'm waiting on some postage and feedback for my first swap, but I'd be fine for late October.  Hopefully I'll have my new sewing machine by then too.

Well, actually, I wasn't sure because I have sworn off swapping until after Generic Winter Holiday.  I get stressed easily, and as I'm making a lot of presents, I wanted to have time to do my best on everything. 

But I'm still considering.  lol
