Details of swap:
Did you know that each month is dedicated to something... unusual? August is Admit You're Happy Smiley month.
There are weeks dedicated to Friendship and Simplifying Your Life.
And, there are also "odd" daily holidays - the ones that not many people know about or celebrate?  National Lighthouse Day, Wiggle Your Toes Day, and Tell a Joke 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 August

Take a look at the lists at these sites for the month of AUGUST. Please pick 6 holidays you will be celebrating/are interested in.

After being partnered:
Please understand that there are holidays that you may find distasteful or that may have religious/political connotations for you. 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

Oooooh a new month already?! This year is going by too quickly!

Oooh, I really want to join this one, but will be lurking to see if any other European or UK swappers sign up, because I just can't afford to ship internationally right now.  Smiley

We had a couple of swappers from the UK in July, hopefully they will be interested in swapping some odd holidays again Smiley

I'll be joining if I get feedback in time. If not, I'll join the next one. Smiley

Working on getting my overdue swaps out after life got in the way.

unless we get some more swappers this won't be much of a swap.  Maybe this is a sign that the MOH swaps have run their course.
