I got my flat rate box today.  So um I do like the idea of maybe capping of our money price so no one gets jilted, either way I am still in.

I like this idea as well.  How about a 15-25 dollar limit?

Also, have a lot of people signed up so far?

I am really interested in signing up for this swap but I am in Australia so the $7.50 box wouldn't really apply, can I still sign up? Would anyone be willing to send over here? And if so, how big is this box (dimensions)?

alright alright alright...jeez you guys are picky.LOL I'll set the crafty spending limit to $20 bucks. That means we can get away with between $15 and $25. Use whatever box you like to fill your goodies in, since theres a spending limit, it doesnt matter what size the box is. Smiley Lots of people signing up too!

I agree that $20 didn't feel like a whole lot of stuff, but that's all my little empty wallet could handle. :/ I'm going for quality not quantity.  Wink

Hugs...please do be sure to read through all of the swap rules before you do another swap. It will probably be alright that you didn't get DC (Delivery Confirmation), but if something happened and your package never makes it to your swap partner, a DC number can help us track that sucker down, where as if you dont have a number, you would just get a big fat negative on your swap record since theres no proof you ever sent it. I personally believe that the Post Office does NOT lose things, and that it never has lost anything and people who say..."oh, it got lost in the mail" are all liars...LOL but i'm not the one with the big stick, so next time, please do remember to get Delivery Confirmation at the Post Office.

I received from lee lee a few day's ago but haven't had a chance to post.

Such great stuff!! Fimo (in a color I've never seen before) tons of stickers, fancy yarns and ribbons, a cool wooden box in the shape of a star, stamps and tons of other stuff. But my personal favorite was a handmade tote of fabulous quality that she sold to herself for a buck! Ingenious!

Thanks again!

Hooray!  I received my box of awesome goodies from cortag04.  The box arrived Friday or Saturday, but I was out of town until this evening.   

I love my stuff!  She sent me various types of yarns in colors I really love (turquoise and purple), including a fuzzy lavender yarn!  I also love the Happy birthday rubber stamp (I do a lot of paper crafting).  I received 2 big t-shirts that I plan to recon into something fun; a cute picture frame with stripes and a dog theme (woof), and a bag of plastic army men--hilarious!  Also included:  cute Valentine stickers, plain flip flops that are begging to be crafted, and some paper CD sleeves...my husband, kids, and I burn lots of music and photo CDs, so those sleeves will get put to use right away.  And to "sweeten" the package, she included a bag of SweetTart hearts...sooooo my favorite.

Many, many thanks cortag04!  I am thrilled with my stuff.

Yep, I did some research and saw you (and your sons) liked army men, so when I saw them I HAD to throw them in.  Just so you know...the ice cube tray also makes a wonderful soap mold.  Do i hear heart shaped valentines soaps?
