Title: New Baby / New Mom / Baby Shower Swap
Post by: dragonslair on November 01, 2006 08:54:58 AM
I was thinking a swap between the expecting and new moms (babies less than 6 months old) would be an interesting swap.  Sort of an online baby shower, not to mention we all understand the time constraints now placed on our crafting.  So anybody interested?

I would definitely be interested in this swap.  My first baby is due next month so this would be fun.

This is an old thread, but as I'm hoping my baby will be born in the next, well, hours, honestly because she was due back on Feb 14th, I'd love to do this swap.  Anyone interested?  We could include first-timers like me, and any parental types that need stuff for their babies and/or themselves.   Bibs?  Soakers?  Cute baby hats and shoes?  Salve? 

Plus, there are only so many little amigurumi rabbits my little bun is going to need.  I need someone else who needs one :D  And being on 12 weeks of maternity leave, I might have some time in between sleeping and feeding and sleeping and feeding to make a pretty sweet package.

Hi
I would be very interested in this swap! My first baby is due in June and I'm not working anymore so I have a lot of free time.

We actually did this swap last summer.  But if anyone is up for another one, I'm willing to organize it...if we wait until April.  (March is a bit too swap-busy for me to take on another swap, esp. as an organizer.)  Is there still interest, even if we wait until early April?

I'm interested!  My 2nd baby is due in June.
April would be great as already at my limit for this month.

What size swap were you all hoping for?

April would be great!  My bun's two weeks old tomorrow, and we're still figuring each other out.  I'd appreciate the time to think things over...

I am planning to organize this one, with signups at the end of this month or beginning of next (depending on when my current swaps finish up, feedback-wise).

I'm thinking to open signups on around April 15th-ish.

I'm still interested in feedback regarding the size of the swap.

I'd love to join this swap!  Also, I'd be more than happy to co-org, if you need or want one.

What size was the swap you did last summer?  How did it work out?  I've participated in a couple of these swaps, a while back...  here's one (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228266.0), and the other one (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=262844.0)....  Looks like in one we did a large, med, sm, and the other had the size worked out between the partners.  I personally think a 5 point swap would be good.  :)

I didn't organize the last one; I just participated.  I'm pretty sure it was also a large, medium, and small.  I like the idea of a points-based swap because you can use varying combinations to arrive at the proper size for your package.

I have two kids of my own but for this swap---I have two sister-in-laws that are pregnant right now!  :o One is pregnant with her third and the other (my newest sister in law) with her first. She only JUST found out but I really want to make this an awesome experience for her since her "real" family is being totally NON supportive about it >.> I'm a shoo-in whenever this gets up.  8)
