Details of swap:  
  
Are you ready to collect a plethora of fun, handmade, play food for your little one(s)? Here is how it will work. Everyone will be put into a group of four crafters. Each person in each group will declare a food item according to theme that they wish to create in bulk. Since this is sender's choice you may start on your item right away. So that we get a little bit of a variety.  
  
Your Fake Food must be:  
A) Hand made of course  
B) Machine Washable  
C) Non-toxic (these things might get gnawed upon!)  
D) It must be a single serving  
  
Also, please check with your partners about the fanciability of your food item. I know I made up a word, but how else to describe it? If the food item you want to make is going to go into the hands of a toddler perhaps it shouldnt have seed beads on it, but if its going to a 8 or 10 year old (or a fun loving adult for that matter) those seed beads may be just the thing to make your crafty dessert into a true object dart!  
  
  
*** Small Rule Change***  
I would like to change a rule slightly, and that is; "Everyone must post at least one picture in the gallery... even if someone else has already posted pictures of everything you have received." Even if you wait until you receive everything and then post one picture of everything.  
  
Number of partners may change at close of swap but you will be in a group of no more than 6 including yourself.  
  
For those of you who tend to get ahead of your swaps. Here is a list of upcoming swaps.  
      
April----fruit  
May----veggie  
June----snack food (chips, crackers, etc.)

I've started making felt food for my nephew and I know he needs a bunch more! I want to join but I'll have to wait and ask Mr. Drowning if it's okay. He's been hinting that I need to slow down on swapping since we may be moving in the next couple of months. Hmm...

I was thinking about making my step daughter some play food for her birthday but knowing me I won't get around to it.... I do however perform well for swaps so maybe I should do this one and kill two birds with one stone - ie my need to join swaps and get her a present at the same time hehe.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

Sorely tempted - and I saw a little toy cash register yesterday for $10 so that with the play food would be a great gift.... I'll talk it over with my boy and see what he thinks. He'll probably be all "Thought you were quitting swaps" and I'll be all "no I was quitting doing 5 at once" lol.
Course it would sweeten the deal if my partner would be willing to throw in something for him, he's always disappointed when I get a swap parcel and I haven't thought to ask for Hot Tamales lol.

I am making apples and strawberries already for this but I will have to get positive feedback first from the first swap I'm in. I'm trying to get the other swap package sent really early so I can sigh up in this one before it closes. I have 2 apples done so far.
