OOH I am so signing up for this swap as soon as I have a spot.  Glad it's a long sign up cause I don't want to miss this one.  My two year old is always so fascinated with my swap packages...it'd be awesome to get something that was just for him!  Can't wait for this one.

Yep! In the past we've had shorter sign ups but then we didn't get as many people able to participate. I wanted everyone to have a chance to get in on this one!

This was so much fun last time!

Doing a big swap already, but what the heck - might just have to do 2!!


Question - if I want to swap for both my children do I need to fill in 2 questionnaires?

You could either have them both included in the one swap package or fill out a second one and have a second partner yourself. It's up to you!! I have a toddler and one on the way and still deciding which to do for this swap as well.

Ok - thank you for that - now I need to make another decision! One partner - more spoiling time/dosh available, but two partners means can do different things. Hummm   :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\
Should be getting partners for the Christmas Stocking Swap soon, so guess I'll need to figure out what/how much I need to do for that, before making up my mind for this one!

I haven't swapped in almost 2 years, but I couldn't resist this one.  My sister is expecting her first baby in March, I am soooo excited to be an auntie!  I'd love to give her a package of goodies for Baby.  :)

My sister in law is due with her second boy (after a nine year hiatus!!  :o ) ANY DAY NOW. I have a quilt in the works for her but I MIGHT have to squeak this one in and surprise her with more goodies. OR I can do it for my OTHER sister in law who's little boys first b-day is on 11/11/12. OR I can do it for my two little girls, ages 4 and 5 (born 10 months apart).
   choices, choices....  8)

Just checking in...I took a glance at my partner's Pinterest and it will be fun to craft for a girl (since I have a boy).

A little teasing to organizer for pairing up a hunting family with a vegetarian. ;) lol - it's all good - I wasn't planning to send jerky!

I'm sorry about that. I tried to match up based upon a number of factors like allergies, shipping preferences and some people preferred to craft for a certain age range. I guess I overlooked a few things, haha.

Oh I know - it's hard to match everyone up on every little thing.  I really will enjoy crafting some girly things, though!

My son's birthday is coming up & we are celebrating this weekend (grandpa is flying in to visit too).  So I am prepping for that.  I plan to stalk some more & buy supplies over the next week though.

I've already talked to my partner about what i'm making her specifically so this won't be spilling any beans..
I've already made her a good-sized diaper bag that's waterproof on the inside. ;)
I've also made a couple of cloth diapers.

Planning to make a wet bag or two & still deciding on all my filler items.

I ordered some fabric today for two smalls.  And ok, I ordered some fabric for my little guy to make boy versions.  I know what my medium/large will be, but I have to think through how I'm going to do it.   ;)

i have started my large. however after getting a couple inches into it i realized it was coming out way to large. it would have fit my 5.5 year old! i have a feeling the pattern runs a bit large! ah well to frog today and start again with a smaller size. all is good!

Also found a pattern for a small that I will start tonight. now wht about all the tiny scraps left over? Hmmmmmmm............... ??? Thinking/planning is half the fun!

Got the fabric I ordered last night and am excited to get started!  But first, I need to finish LO's Halloween costume.  Yes I really waited until October 30th to start.   :o  Then I need to do a little t-shirt for him to wear on his birthday Thursday...DH & I are going camping this weekend, though, and I plan to bring a small with me to work on.  I want to hand sew it because it is ___ and ____ ____ and a disaster waiting to happen on my sewing machine.  :-*

This thread is so quiet!

My large turned into a medium, due to running out of fabric :( Gonna try ANOTHER new craft, and maybe get in my comfort zone with the knitting needles.

Was making good stride on my large until I realized it was too small! (not in skill/time, just in actual size!) so now I have to wait for the roads to de-ice so I can go to the only tiny fabric store in town and hope they have what I need! Otherwise I might have to send a message to my sewing friends around here to see if they have some in their stash! I hate living 1.5 hours away from real fabric stores!  :(

So now I'm going to get started on my medium item and some extras!

While I was taking out the trash, I left my bedroom door open (doh!) and my roomie's dog got in and drug off the large I was working on to eat. D: It's completely FUBAR, so I'm trying to decide if I have time to re-start it or if I should choose something else. No bueno. :<

I made good progress on what started as a small but I'm thinking it's really a medium. And I cut out a small, which I plan to finish this week. We are camping again next weekend so I should finish the medium then (hand sewing).

Just wanted to speak up and say I'm still here and working away! I've had an interesting week, the baby is teething his top two front teeth at the same time. Then the oldest has been sick which has had me running in and out of the hospital with him. So over all not as done as I want to be but still doing good!

I'm still here. took a break on crafting because I wasn't feeling well. Was planning to finish everything up today and tomorrow but I got chosen for a pregnant mama makeover! I had to consult with a stylist this morning and getting everything done all day tomorrow. It may be taking away from crafting a bit but it's so nice to do something for myself. (&it's free!)

We have had the coughing going around our house too.  Mine turned into bronchitis.   :'(  I am still crafting away, but I will probably run everything through the laundry before I send out.

I just noticed sendouts are the 16th.  Why did I think they were the 20th?  Doh!

I am just about done with a small (should finish tonight) & still on track to finish my medium this weekend.  I have not started the last thing, but I guess I'll be finishing that next week!    :)

Just took my 2 main items out of the dryer! I love one of them! The other one will be awesome once I fix it! Darn washing made it a bit wonky! (I KNEW it was going to happen too! I just knew it! BOO)

I'm glad to have these 2 things mostly done so I can switch to the super easy fun extras on my list! I'm having lots of fun sewing everything because its giving me good ideas of what to make for my new nephew (born last week!!).

Using this weekend to put the details on my last item, and then tomorrow I need to trek down the street for a sweet little extra for dreadlady! :D I had so much fun crafting for your little boy!

Also, we had a very exciting day yesterday. I had my anatomy scan and we found out that our incoming little one is a girl! :) To celebrate we went out and bought the first cloth diaper cover for her, a cute robot design! Ha ha. And now I've been freaking out over how tiny the newborn diaper covers are. @[email protected] So cute!

AWWW CONGRATULATIONS on finding out about your girl!  That helps me narrow down what I'm going to make you a little more!!  Newborn stuff is creepy small!!  I didn't buy anything in newborn sizes when I was pregnant because I just knew my baby wouldn't be that small....boy was I wrong!!!

My 5 year old when he was born was 11.5 lbs, I have no idea what to expect with this one, the OBGYN figures at least 10 lbs...

Ya, I wouldn't ever know what to expect size wise, I assumed Daysie would have been about 10 lbs because you always here each child gets larger, well Quenton was 8 lbs....twins don't count  ;D, Ethan was 9 lbs, so I assumed Daysie would have been 10!! AHHH!!! Nope, she was a teeny tiny 6 lbs!!!!!!  DH had to go buy her new clothes to come home in!!! hahaha, what I had was waaayyyyy too big!  She was in preemie clothes for a couple of weeks, now THOSE are TEENY!!

Congrats on the girl!!!  And I'm not sending til the very last day  ;)

The past few weeks have been insanely busy here, so I apologize for not being more active on this board, but I have been crafting my little heart out on my swap items!  I sent yesterday, but now comes the hard part... Waiting for my partner to receive!!  I'm way too excited to find out if she likes her package. 

Boystress, your poor ankle!  I hope you're okay... I wish I had read this before I sent, I'd have added a little get well present.

Reading about 10+ lb babies makes me extremely grateful that it's my sister who's expecting, and not me.  Haha

This one is going to be born a bit early, via c-section for health reasons, but still, I don't know what to expect at all after him.

Me too lol.  J was my first but DH & I are both really tall & I had GD & I just "knew" he wasn't going to be in newborn sizes.  He was perfectly average at 8+ lbs (and in newborn sizes a couple of weeks), but you just never know.   :)  Now he definitely got his large head from my dad's side & THAT I could have done without.

Ok!  I finished a small & medium.  Another small to go.

I didn't buy any first size or new born stuff for either of my boys. Miles came in on due date (just) at 7lb 15.5oz and was just great but now (3 1/2 years later) is SO tall hes in 6-7 year clothes :(
Scott was 9 days early (planned c-section after emergency section with Miles) and 8lbs 1oz, having been told I had too much fluid, a large baby (with a month to go they were saying he weighed over 9lbs), and a big scare over GD!
Have slowly been getting rid of the little stuff, and can't believe that either of them fitted into those tiny clothes, but I remember dressing them in some of the outfits, so they must have!

As for swap - almost finished main item, and on with extras as discussed with partner :D

My son just turned 3 and he is a GIANT he makes most 5 year olds look small...I just had to start buying clothes in the regular boys section and I can relate to your sad face lol

I have most of my package finished but now that my partner knows she is having a girl  :D I want to craft a few items that are "girly" -I'm using that term loosely.

This is off topic but I'm so excited I have to say it. The oldest is now TOTALLY done with any and all cancer stuffs!!! He finished chemo and all other treatments back in April but still had his medical port in. That was taken out yesterday. It now feels done to me since I won't have to worry ever time he gets a fever about going in for blood work. The last major thing from cancer has now left my boy!

My machine seized up twice this past week and I can't seem to get it out of it this second time. Of course it happened when I still needed to make inserts for the cloth diapers I'm sending.

Any interest in doing one of these again, or something similar?

I just opened another baby/kiddo swap that we are doing as an ongoing swap. Then we can claim multiple people and claim as we have time rather than only one person a month. Go to the active swaps board and look for the Ongoing Baby/Kiddo Swap. =)
