INTERNATIONAL NINJA DAY!!! Public Sleeping Day!

This swap is to celebrate those unknown or unusual holidays. Each swapper will choose 3 holidays from the lists provided for JANUARY and choose 6 holidays from the lists provided for FEBRUARY. Each partner will choose from those 9 holidays and craft 1 small item for JANUARY and 3 small items for FEBRUARY 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.
Packages MUST have a DC#. 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. When PMing the organizer please start pms with the following:  MOH Feb Sign up, MOH Feb Question, MOH Feb Sent, or MOH Feb Received.

This seems a little odd to me. Why more February than January? Why not the same amount? Why not the other months, or are you planning to keep this going?

I *do* love the unusual holidays Smiley I often celebrate them and share with the world. I even created my own once: National Striped Shirt Day. My friend was depressed and wanted a reason to party, so I created a reason. Then went to work telling everyone "Happy Striped Shirt Day!"... funny thing is they all joined in as if they knew exactly what I was talking about. Except the Asst Mgr who was upset nobody told her. Her b/f even acted like he knew all about it.  When I finally told her I made it up on my way to work, she was p/o'd. Thought we were ganging up to play a practical joke on her. I truly never expected everyone to run with it!

I'm just not quite understanding the swap... I hope you can answer my questions and I can decide. Smiley

I think she did less for January because we're almost there and sendouts are at the end of January, so we'll miss most of the days.  It sounds from the description that crazyda plans on this being a monthly swap too.  It sounds so interesting!! Too bad I have no spots, maybe the next round!!!

Yes, this!!  We did several rounds of this in 2010 but January was left out.  I figured this time around, I would include January even though the month will practically be over when sendouts come up.  Every month after this, will just be one month at the 3 small items per month.  I just did not want to leave out January.

Here is the link to the last swap round October which has links to all the other months.  Hope this helps to clarify things.

Dang it! I'm in ... LOL. Apple and Apricot month? Bath Safety awareness month? I actually haven't gotten further than those, but ... sigh! I can't say no Smiley It's too fun.

I just finished organizing a swap myself, and my brain hurts now, so I'm going to bed. Will figure out the questionnaire and send it in tomorrow sometime Smiley Um... rather, today. It's 2am.

I am thinking about joining, I think this would be a blast to craft for as some of the holidays seem a little wacky!

I am still a little confused about how this works, do you have to stay in the swap all year, or sign up on a two monthly basis, do you retain the same partner, or get a new partner each month??
