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 from those 6 holidays 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.

I'm in again! Just sent my info!

Hey, you see that March is Craft month? And the second week is crochet week? I think that's cool. I didn't put them on my list b/c there were other things on there, but I still think it's cool. Aren't we celebrating craft month by doing these swap?

I might have to join this one.  Pi Day, 3.14.  Or something on a stick day.

I'll give this some serious thought.  I had stopped swapping because I ran out of places to put things, but I could do with a pi poster.

This is a perfect swap for a first timer.  Low requirements, and very light hearted.  Welcome and have fun!!
