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.

You have 6 holidays to chose from for crafting 3 items.  The organizer does not have the time or mental faculties to look through each holiday and determine if "most" people would find that holiday offensive in any way. If you don't like a holiday your partner chose, then don't craft for it Smiley

Crazyda, could you please post which holidays you chose?  I'm trying to decide, whether or not I want to join, based on what holidays others are picking.  A, "Can I make something for that holiday" decision.  Smiley
