Details of swap:
Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual? June is Turkey Lovers Month, Ice Tea Month and National Accordian Awareness Month!
There are weeks dedicated to Superman, Watermelon Seed Spitting, and Clotheslines!
Did you know that each month has "odd" holidays - the ones that not many people know about or celebrate?  National Camera Day, Donut Day, and a day to Let it Go!
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 June

So I'm not done with my Q yet but I do have my list! Here it is!
Nature photography day 15
Family Awareness Day 20
Daylight Appreciation Day 21
Let it go day 23
Celebrations of the senses day 24
Sewing Machine Day 13
As a side note: Camera Day, Waffle Iron Day, and according to one of our sites Hug Holiday all fall on my birthday, June 29th. Last year camera day and waffle iron day were on my bday as well so I guess i'm just gonna have to celebrate them every year, eh? Oh and Something on a Stick day was in March but we are celebrating it on my bday because I wasn't ready for it but I had so many ideas! Steak skewers, stick puppets, marshmallow roasting, fondue, me... so many things that go so great on sticks!
