I originally put this idea into the swap ideas forum  months ago... it didn't go much of anywhere though... my kids were super interested in doing this... and I was all set to sign up, but with the signups ending on the 21st, and the sendout so close afterwards< i unfortunately may have to pass if we can't maybe extend the date out a wee bit? for sendouts?

daughters ages nine and ten, Alaska...

yeah  I had started it a while back and I think a few others did too. but  now  we are up and running.  Unfortunately I can't  change the send out date. I was taking into consideration that mothers day is in May also and that would put a cramp on finances for some of to send and craft for 2 things.  So unfortunately I can not change the dates.
But I am sure there will be another round may you can catch the next one.
