This looks like fun!  It's really a cross between the Once you Pop swap and the matchbox swap!

I haven't seen those around...where do you find those?  This would be a fun swap Smiley

If I find one...I'll probably take part. Grin

I will definitely join this one, but I want to make sure I can find the mini tube first. Not sure I've ever seen them in Canada, but maybe I've just never looked. It's all about the Smarties with us.

I checked the locater website and it says they're sold at CVS and there's one right by my house! If I have time today I will swing down there and try pick up a tube and send in my info!

Glad to see interest in this one guys! It really is a Once You Pop/Matchbox mashup Cheesy I hope enough of you can find the candy in a store near you Sad make sure you check that link I provided! It's very helpful in telling which store closest to you carries them. I sure hope they have them in Canada!  Huh
I'm normal.. the rest of you are crazy!

I know they sell them here in Ontario anyway. I have seen them at Walmart. Smiley I am really thinking about joining this one.

I completed my best craft project EVA!! 10 lb 2 oz baby Violet! Born at home in my own bed!! Smiley

Wisty Goodness!

One place I went, where they said they had them...didn't.  But, I'll keep lookin!

This looks like such a great idea!  I just joined my very first swap though so I can't play yet.  Unless I somehow get my things done before the cut-off!!  Hehe  Grin

I like bacon, gnomes, and squirrels.
Not necessarily in that order.
