i did this swap last year and i was so excited to do it, but, i felt cheated when i got my partners box. she said cereal box and i found out that cereal boxes are a lot smaller in canada than the US. make sure you communicate well so noone is disappointed, and read the questionairre (she sent snacks that was on my don't like list) i sent her a shoebox sized box of candy packed full of what she wanted plus a craft item and some crafty extras all packed in a larger box. i spent a good amount on the snacks and shipping. i was soooo disappointed and when my partner saw the difference in our boxes she said she had another package to send to me but it never came. so it is very important to communicate with your partner so you both are happy.

This is good advice, cause I was looking at the small flat rate box and realized it is nowhere near the size of a shoe box. I think it will be very good to comunicate with your partners.. Make sure you both understand what size and how much you will be sending.

Awwww....thanks.  Grin  But its up to you, I don't want you to delay it for a week just for me.  I'm sending stuff out tomorrow for 2 swaps, although one is the SSS, so that will probably take more than a week cuz I'm sending to 9 people.  Anyways, I would love tojoin, so I'm leaving it up to you.

I don't mind if sign ups get extended so others can join too! 
(Yes, I have ulterior motives.  I'm madly trying to finish two birthday gifts, so having a little time between crafting a cool themed item would be nice.)  Wink

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
