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 Pickle 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. U.S. packages MUST have a DC#, and international packages must have a receipt. Please provide both to the organizer when you ship. 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.


Communication is a must! You must check in on the original thread and the gallery thread at least once a week. You also must check in with your partner once a week. Poor communication or lack thereof will be noted in feedback.

When PMing the organizer please start pms with the following:  MOH MAY Sign up, MOH MAY Sent, or MOH MAY Received.

Yahooo! I was starting to feel sad about our April Odd Holiday swap wrapping up but now I have May to look forward to.

Can I pick International Pickle Day for all 6 of my holidays?? Just kidding - I'm sure there are other squee-worthy days in May that I'll want goodies for Smiley.

I'll get my questionnaire off sometime this evening!


PS - thank goodness spell check is back. I don't think I could handle spelling "questionnaire" one more time without it.

I am in the same boat.  It still says the April swap is active because I haven't received my package yet.  As soon as I get it, and the feedback is given I will totally be signing up for this one.

I had such a great time with the April MOH swap.  My first one ever!

Here are my six picks for May...

National BBQ Month
International Pickle Day
Space Day
World Turtle Day
Slugs Return from Capistrano Day
Hurray for Buttons Day

I really wanted to pick Tear the Tag Off Your Mattress Day but it didn't make the final cut Smiley.
