P.s Yay for partners, and how lucky am I, not only do I have a lovely partner but she's visiting my city at the end of the month so we can hand each other our parcels and save on shipping. This is the best swap everrrr!!  Grin

Eeek!  Happy noise!  I can't wait!  I get a weekend away from my kids, a refreshing conference to attend and I get to meet you and swap in person!!  Grin  Three weeks can't go fast enough.  Well, as long as I can find lots of crafting time in there somewhere. Smiley

I'm also very happy with my partner! Ninzip acually only lives a few streets away from my place, so I guess we'll swap in person as well!

yea for partners..............I LOVE MINE (maremare)............and will have a hard time not sending a truck to deliver all the stuff I want to make for her...........

hope everyone is as happy with their partner as I am with mine.... Cheesy

Well, just stay in the theme of the swap, then...a delivery truck would hardly be frugal. Wink  With how huge this swap is, it's weird to me how small the requirements are.  I guess it's because I just got finished with the random swap..

Well, I do work for an LTL (less than truckload) trucking company, so I could probably get you a discount to make it frugal Wink

For the foamy soap bottles, use about an inch to two inches of hand soap and fill the rest up with water, then give it a bit of a shake. It will foam up while you're adding the water, just keep overflowing it until the foam flows out and it's actually full of water. Leave a bit of head room at the top to shake it. I buy foaming bottles from some of my soap suppliers and am always pushing them on my friends! Love em! As long as you can get the top off the dial or other brands of ones you can refill em (I swear they used to make them so you couldn't refill them, but my mom just had one that I could refill, so yay!) Super thrifty, then you buy the refill bottles of liquid soap and it will last like a year!

Yeah, and I was figuring that ground transportation was more frugal than air..... Wink

Is this possible?  It is a Saturday and no one has replied to this thread in five hours!  You all must be

a) busily crafting for your partner
b) doing house work
c) buried in a snow drift

So which is it, ladies?   Wink Cheesy Grin

Maybe we were all so chatty because we were waiting for partners.  But as for me, I am doing none of the above.  Just wasting time on the old interweb at the moment and avoiding getting dressed and doing anything productive.

Yay! I had a frugal moment! Granted I had to spend money, but it will save money next year.
I went to Hobby Lobby and bought 1 roll of Christmas wrapping paper, 8 gift bags, 1 box of gift boxes, and 5 rolls of wrapping ribbon for $8.00! The wrapping paper alone at regular price was $7.99!  Grin

Awesome! My mom likes to hit walgreens after Christmas for 75% off wrapping paper. She hasn't had to do it in the last two years because we have so much from the last time she went!
