Details of swap:
Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual? Pleasure Your Mate Month, National Egg Month, National Tie Month!
There are weeks dedicated to Root Canal Awareness, Rabbits, and Waffles! (Individual weeks, not one week for all of those... or maybe there is.... )
Did you know that each month has "odd" holidays - the ones that not many people know about or celebrate?  There's a National Don't Step on a Bee Day! Licorice Day! INTERNATIONAL NINJA DAY!!!
This swap is to celebrate those unknown or unusual holidays. Each swapper will chose 6 holidays from the lists provided. Each partner will choose from those 6 holidays and craft 3 small items for their partner. A small item is defined as: by time-2 or less hours; by size-earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks, magnets; by price-$10 or less.
Packages MUST have a DC#. Shipping priority is suggested but not a requirement.

In order for this to be a monthly swap we MUST have a fast turn around time. Due to the fast turn around time, the organizer reserves the right to not add someone to the swap if there has been a documented history of repeated late sending. Please do not sign up for this swap unless you are prepared to send on time, if not early, and post pictures as soon as your package arrives. When PMing the organizer please start pms with the following:  MOH Feb Sign up, MOH Feb Question, MOH Feb Sent, or MOH Feb Received.

I LOVE this idea, I love that it's SMALLS, and there are SO many fun holidays!  I might have to do this one.  No.  I'm going to do this one.  Count me in, baby!

I just submitted my questionnaire. It was actually harder to narrow down my list of 6 holidays. There were so many good ones!

I included a quick blurb on my q'nnaire explaining why I picked each holiday.
