Details of swap:

So it’s that time of month. For some it’s a use a sick day and cry to our bosses and lay up in bed all day hugging the heating pad and midol kind of thing. For others it’s a sigh of relief that’s it’s made an appearance at last, but that doesn’t make it any more comfortable. And for most it’s a yell at anyone who get’s between you and the chocolate week. This swap is about making that time of month a little more bearable. Feel free to use your imagination and craft something you’d like to take out when Aunt Flo comes for her lovely visit.

You will be making a minimum of:

1 medium item
4 small items

If you’d like to make or buy more please discuss with your partner.

Please keep me updated on your status at least once a week, either by PM to me or by posting in the thread. Please PM me and your partner when you send (with DC#), receive, and if you’ll be late sending. This is to help everything go much more smoothly. Thanks!

hmm, I'm pretty sure I love this idea, but I can't really think of any crafty PMS items I'd want to give or receive... I'll keep this in the back of my mind and see if the gears start turning.

Hm, I might join this swap. I dunno. The requirements aren't too bad, but school starts up for me next week so I don't know if it'd be a good idea...

Thanks for the links to the older swaps for ideas! A knit uterus would be awesome... The obvious cloth pads etc. I'm personally a diva cup girl but I love thin cloth pads for every day use to stay "fresh". Keep the ideas comin!  Smiley
