Details of swap:

We are going to make a package for moms!  Everyone seemed to be talking about how our moms love the packages we receive, and so, even though mother's day was last month, I thought it would be a great idea to create some crafts for our moms.  OR, as someone asked in the discussion thread, if you don't have a mom, but have a special "like a mom to me" person in your life, you can be included too!  I think we should make one large, one medium, and one small item for mom - and of course you are welcome to send more! 


I'm going to offer the option of having the packages sent directly to mom in the cases where you don't live near your mom, so PLEASE take photos of your items before you send them to your partners mom so if mom doesn't have a camera we can still see what you made!

I know postage has gone MAJORLY up, so please consider the weight of your items while you craft to try to cut down on your costs.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

I can't get in to edit my post, but I wanted to let you know that I'm having spotty internet at the moment thanks to comcast, so if I don't reply to you right away, please don't panic.  If for some reason you don't see a reply from me or your name on the list after 24 hours, please post to this thread and let me know, in case I overlooked you!!

Okay, I refuse to let myself sign up until I finish the swap package I'm working on.  But as soon as that's done, I'm in!

I'm totally in!  I just got a swap package and have a wonderful idea to share with whoever my partner ends up being.  I'm very excited about this one!

Thanks everyone!

I think this will be a very fun swap. I know my mom is always asking about packages I get, and her birthday is july 3, so I can just make this a late birthday for her Cheesy

omg, idk what to do. What do you think will matter more to my mom: the fact that I'm getting addicted to swaps and I'm spending a lot of money yet for another swap OR the fact that this one is actually for her?? Maybe I'll have to stand the scolding until she gets her package and then she'll hug me. lol

But I did promise I'd join when the swap was proposed. Hmm. It wouldn't be fair for me not follow up on what I promised. Right? And it would be such a shame for me to miss this. Right? ok ok, I'm sendng the info. lol  Tongue

Hooray!  I think the most exciting part about swaps is the first little bit when my name gets put as a participant!  I'm already brushing up on some of my crafty skills just for this swap.  Also, I couldn't resist telling my dad about it and now he's jealous.  Smiley
