I would love to receive some beads from other countries/areas.  I would be willing to organize a bead swap with other craftsters from overseas who would like to send me some beads and I can send you some American style beads. 

I am an old swap hag, but I understand that this is new to some of you, so let's try to work out the details together.

Everyone from overseas would send a package of 50 beads to each person in the United States.  That would be 4 bags of 50 beads.  Each person in the United States would send a package of 50 beads to each person overseas.  That would be 4 bags of 50 beads.  Does this make sense?  Postage should not be a huge issue on a small bag of beads, but if it is, please let me know.

No seed beads. Up to 10 of the 50 beads could be charms, but it is not mandatory.  Beads should go together somewhat (i.e. color, size) so that something could be made with the new stashes!  I think any findings or seed beads anyone wants to send would be considered an extra bonus, but is also not mandatory.

Mail by Janury 15, 2005 or sooner...the sooner the better!

Post pictures here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21921.new#new

HERE IS THE SIGN UP LIST:

OVERSEAS:  Purplehippo, Milly, Blackcat, Tinybits
UNITED STATES:  Bkrenning4, Mrsbenjimadden, krazigal72, xmelinda,


If there is any problem with mailing, please let me know.

Thanks!  Let's have fun!

IMPORTANT:

I TAKE SWAPPING VERY SERIOUSLY.  I WILL NOT HESITATE TO REPORT ANYONE WHO FAILS TO FOLLOW THRU ON THEIR SWAP OBLIGATION.  I UNDERSTAND DELAYS, BUT EXPECT TO BE NOTIFIED.  IF ANYONE DOUBTS THEIR ABILITY TO COMPLETE THIS SWAP, PLEASE EMAIL ME NOW.

I would like to do this one -- you might want to change the title/subject though, because some people might think it's a bead swap for people who live overseas, like the recent Aussie ones.  I mean, it *is*, but I wonder if people who live in the US might be skipping over it.  I did, at first.

I will compile all the United States addresses and send them to you.  You will mail one bag of 50 beads to each person on the list.  It's that simple!  In return, you will receive 5 bags of 50 beads, one from each of those people.

Please PM me with your address.  Thanks.

I was in another swap where I had to make 18 pairs of earrings, so as long as the bead stash was out, I made up my baggies!

I am waiting on a couple of addresses.  Righ now it is 3 United States and 3 overseas.  If I don't hear from the others in the next couple of days, we will just go with the three of us!

While going over my beads I found some that I made a while ago myself. Is it okay if I add some of the "selfmade" ones or do the beads need to be bought ones? It would be a few, not nearly all of them...

I mailed 4 bags of beads.. I am hoping they wont get lost on their way on cuz I mailed them in a regular way, no track number, no insurance, no express mail.. they told me that it can take up 7 to 10 days, so girls please be patient and dont flame me in a rush.. *angel*

Please let me know when you got your envelopes. they are in little  regular color envelopes, I padded the inside just to be sure they wont crack.. And since I don't have a camera I couldn't take pics, so I would like it if you can take pics..
