Details of swap:
This swap is for us Canadians!  The idea sprouted from the American 44cent swap (thanks lovesclutter for that bit of brilliance!).  This is our take on it!  Send 1 envelope, within country, Filled with crafted items, supplies, bits bobs, and any other crafty goodies you can possibly think of!  The only parameters I am setting are this:
[/b] at least one item must be crafted and Your envelope must be NO BIGGER THEN  245mmx156mm (standard letter) OR 235mmx120mm (card)
This Round is the Winter edition!  So, Whether you just dig snow men, or snow or skating or things like that, or Love Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or other winter holidays I’m missing here, This swap is for you!

I am allowing stuffing of that envelope until it could possibly burst (though I wouldn’t recommend that. Could you imagine the havoc craft supplies could reek on the machines at the post office?!  And how tragic would that be for your partner, never mind the post office!)  I also don’t recommend overstuffing if you wish your package to not go as a parcel, which would cause a longer shipping time and cost you upwards of 13$+. 


I reserve the right as organizer to refuse anyone that has a long history of late sending, or poor communication. This is an easy swap, and you have 2.5 weeks to stuff a little envelope!.
I also ask that you post in the thread at least once after partners are assigned. 
I am accepting first time swappers!
Please PM me and your partner when you have shipped, and when you have received!  This will eliminate confusion and frustration!  Communication is key to a great swap!!
Please Label your PMs with:
CSES Winter edition- Sign up
CSESWinter edition- sent
CSES Winter Edition- recieved
CSES Winter edition- question
This will help me with organization. 

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: (belladune)
