Details of swap:
...Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual?  September is Fall Hat Month!  How cool is that!  There are also holidays celebrating  ADHD, Mold awareness,  Pediatric Cancer, Waffle Week, Keep kids creative week,  Salami day.    And so many more then I should probably list.  Go have a look!

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.  You MUST PM both tlh878 and belladune  with your questionaire,  recived, late sending, and any other questions or concerns.

When PMing the organizers please start pms with the following:  MOH September

I'm glad you're organizing, Belladune! I would hate to see this awesome swap disappear.

I had to skip last month but I might just need to join this round!

I would love to join. But I've signed up for my capacity and I'm working on a lot of bigger swaps.

I can't wait to see the gallery and hopefully sign up next month! How fun!

I've been wanting to do one of these swaps for a while.  Just to clarify, it is holidays in September, not August, that we're choosing?  It's funny that September 5th is Be Late For Something Day and September 6th is Fight Procrastination Day Smiley
