Details of swap:
Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual?  National Recommitment Month, National Salad Month, Grapefruit and Kiwi Month, Clean Air Month
There are weeks dedicated to Wildflowers, Drinking Water, Raisins
Did you know that each month has "odd" holidays - the ones that not many people know about or celebrate?  Save the Rhino Day, Lumpy Rug day, Pick Strawberries 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. U.S. packages MUST have a tracking #, and international packages must have a receipt. Please provide both to the organizer when you ship. 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.

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 May Sign up, MOH May Question, MOH May Sent, or MOH May Received.

Take a look at the lists at these sites for the month of MAY. Please pick 6 holidays you will be celebrating/are interested in.
There are holidays for the month, for a week, or for a particular day. Feel free to chose any type of holiday. Some holidays may be deemed as distasteful to someone. Some holidays may have religious/political connotations for someone. Please be aware of this when choosing your holidays.

After being partnered:
Please understand that there are holidays that you may find distasteful or that may have religious/political connotations for you. 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  


Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.
