Details of swap:
Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual? Pleasure Your Mate Month, National Egg Month, National Tie Month!
There are weeks dedicated to Root Canal Awareness, Rabbits, and Waffles! (Individual weeks, not one week for all of those... or maybe there is.... )
Did you know that each month has "odd" holidays - the ones that not many people know about or celebrate?  There's a National Don't Step on a Bee Day! Licorice Day! Pi Day!!
This swap is to celebrate those unknown or unusual holidays. Each swapper will chose 6 holidays from the lists provided. Each partner will choose 3 holidays from those 6 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.
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.

ETA: 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.

When PMing the organizer please start pms with the following:  MOH March Sign up, MOH March Question, MOH March Sent, or MOH March Received.

2 items finished and another one started Smiley

1 of the finished items is a completely new craft to me, and not 100% sure, so might try re-doing it, if I have time at the end.

Oh my - so many things done already?

I have done some research and planning, but have not yet done much more than that.  I am planning the bulk of the work to be done when my days off roll around.

I made some great progress yesterday.  All three items started and at various stages.  I need one supply to finish one item, and am hoping to make great progress for the other two today - maybe even finishing if I am lucky and have all that I need!
