I'd love to join this with my 4yo and probably get to add a little something from the 2yo as well. She has seen me crafting for swaps and has been asking to send (and receive!) a swap package herself, so this would be the perfect start.

Could I sign up twice, once with my 6 yr.old great-niece and once with her niece, my soon-to-be 5 yr. old great-great niece? Or just sign up once but include both girls as my partners?

I think I'd leave that one up to individual swappers, I think.  If you think you can handle two partners at home and two partners to ship to, then by all means!  My only concern about doing it with both girls as a partner and sending to a single team would be that the other team is sending two items, not three.  I suppose they could send to just the kids, if you wanted to do it that way.  I just don't want the young ones to be disappointed.

Did any of that make sense?  Coz I'm reading it over and it's about as clear as mud to me, and I KNOW what I'm trying to say!  LOL!

Actually that made perfect sense, so my mind must work in a similar manner to yours. I'm concerned about either girl feeling left out, but they're very close to one another so I can't just ask one. For now I can exclude the other kids based upon their ages (3 1/2, 2 1/2, 2, 1, and 9 months) and abilities. Then the four older kids (teenagers) all live too far away to craft with me.

Woo hoo!  This is going to be so FUN!!  I'm thinking of sign ups from 6/5-6/12 and send outs July 11 or so.  How does this sound to everyone?

Sounds good to me, that way we'll have a bit of our summer vacation to craft.

Last day of school here in NJ is 6/23, but I think we can work with those dates!
