Details of swap:
Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual? July is Cell phone courtesy month, Get along with your ex month and National Hay Month!
There are weeks dedicated to Freedom and Sports Clichs, and Nude Recreation Weekend.
Did you know that each month has "odd" holidays - the ones that not many people know about or celebrate?  Take your pants for a walk day, Chocolate Day, and Compliment your mirror 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. U.S. packages MUST have a DC#, 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 July

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.

I'm so in! I was thinking of organizing it but I'm so glad you took over instead!

I so want to join again but I'm not sure I've got the time this month to be odd Sad Sad. I'm going to see how far I get on my other swap commitments this week - if I make good progress I'll definitely be signing up.
