Details of swap:
...Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual?  October is National Roller Skating Month!  How cool is that!  There are also holidays celebrating Free thought, Menopause, Moles, Frankenstein, Funerals, Haunted refrigerators, and so many more then I could possibly 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 Jexxican with your questionnaire,  received, late sending, and any other questions or concerns.

When PMing the organizer please start pms with the following:  MOH October

Wow! I've never even looked into a Monthly Odd Holiday swap before, and now I regret not doing so! This is pretty cool! I love funerals, Frankenstein, roller derby and I saw Vegetarian day on the list so this is a BIG maybe. I'm in five swaps currently, so maybe if I get one or two out of the way and I think I can afford this.

Take a look at the lists at these sites for the month of AUGUST. Please pick 6 holidays you will be celebrating/are interested in.

I'm just wanting to make sure I didn't somehow miss something.  Are we actually choosing odd holidays for October, or for August, as it says in the swap info above?  I mean, I'm pretty sure it must be October...

WideEyedLife, you caught me. I made a mistake. All better!

Lady Lovecraft, why have you not joined us before? I sure hope you can get in before I have to close sign ups, these are my favorites. And it's just 3 smalls so it's cheap, if you even have to buy anything at all. I usually don't but like I said in another swap, I horde craft supplies so I don't usually have to make purchases for large swaps, either. Is that just me?

You other ladies, please do sign up! You won't regret it! I know you loved it, you know you wanna...

Yea, I horde crazy amounts of stuff! Basically, a pack rat. And if I do need something I wait till my grandmas in a really good mood, ask her if she wants to go to joanne or micheals, and ta da! She spoils me like crazy! (I don't have a job at the moment... or i'd just spoil myself.) I'm just about ready to send for one swap- so hopefully i'll get it sent in time.

One of the things about MOH's that I love is that you can usually do it stash busting. And the three smalls is so easy. It usually takes me a week or two to come up with ideas but just a couple of hours to craft.

This is one of my favorite swaps. I think this will be my fourth Tongue

This will be my 9th MOH swap! Ah! I'm a nerd.

So, where is everyone? My first time to organize a swap and everyone ditches? That's not cool!
