GIRLS I'M BROKE BOX SWAP!! (GIBBS)

This is Round 5!!!


This swap is by invitation only.
If you have flaked in a swap you will not be allowed into this swap. You must have a swap history on this messageboard or be recommended by another reliable swapper.

NOTE FOR ALL NEW AND CONTINUING GIBBIANS - The ship date on this swap will be FIRM. It is no fun to receive your Christmas related items 2 or 3 days before or worse after Christmas. If you feel you cannot ship by the FIRM due date, please don't join. Anyone who ships after the due date will be listed as a later/flaker and that includes your hostess.

This is a drama free swap, if you are a drama queen, this swap is not for you. Many of us communicate often via Skype and everyone is invited to join us. You are not required to Skype at all, but please understand in advance that many of us chat on Skype.

This swap will consist of things you will MAKE for your partner. Don't forget to budget for shipping your box. There will be 12 words/phrases are posted below and you will create items for your partner that goes with that word/phrase.

The Mailing deadline is between November 15th and NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 4th. Partners will be announced approximately October 1, however I reserve the right to close sign ups earlier if we have enough people signed up.

Here is the short and sweet flaker policy - check in on thread at least once every 2 weeks, if I don't see something from you for 2 weeks, I will pm you. If you don't respond within 7 days I will replace you. Only exceptions will be those who let me or their partner know in advance they will be out of contact. Flakers will be posted on the board as such. I will provide my cell phone #, skype user name (tammy.white80504), and email address to all swappers so no excuse to not let me know what is going on. I don't want to be the police but it takes time for an angel to make all the goodies.

In this round you make make a request for partners. Please give me at least 2-3 individuals and I will take all requests under advisement. No promises are made though!! Once partners are posted, please pm your partner and provide them with your mailing address, your MQ post # and page #, and any other information that would be helpful to them in personalizing your goodies.

Ground Rules:
1. MUST check in with your partner by October 7th.
IF by October 7th you have not heard from your partner...PM me, I'll find a new one for you. By this time everyone should have made contact with their new partner.
2. Check in often with your partner - THIS IS A MUST!!! I WILL make partner switches if you aren't communicating
3. Do your best work. Do not wait until the due date and throw a few items together and call it good. Make sure you would be just as proud to receive your own box.
4. Ship by December 4th and with DC#...NO EXCEPTIONS!
5. ONCE a box is REC'VD...PHOTOS MUST BE SHOWN!!!!!!!! If you don't know how to post photos, I can usually walk you through it. If you don't have a camera, let your partner know. Everyone MUST TAKE photos of the box and goodies BEFORE sending it out!!!!
6. Do not ship your box if you haven't heard from your partner with the last 7 days. Ideally you would both ship within a few days of each other with the required DC#.

If you do not believe in or celebrate Christmas, please substitute the word Holiday or other appropriate word in its place. No offense is meant.

Words/Phrases (HUGE thank you goes out to Jessilala - Coloring HO and the rest of the Skype HOs for coming up with the words for this round):
On the first day of Christmas, my partner made for me a banner with lots of bling.
On the second day of Christmas, my partner made for me, a set of ATCs (or card fronts for those of you who don’t like to make ATCs).
On the third day of Christmas, my partner made for me Christmas cards to send to family.
On the fourth day of Christmas my partner made me grin - with some ornaments that spin.
On the fifth day of Christmas my partner gave to me a something dangly with red or green.
On the sixth day of Christmas my partner showed no restraint - and sent me something covered in paint.
On the seventh day of Christmas my partner had the voice - no hostess word, just a project of her choice.
On the eighth day of Christmas my partner sent to me, some sweets to share with family.
On the ninth day of Christmas my partner looked so smug - she'd sent me papers from her cuddlebug (or sizzix if need be )
On the tenth day of Christmas my partner sent to me, a tool that I’ve been needing.
On the eleventh day of Christmas my partner sent to me, some goodies to keep me cozy.
On the twelfth day of Christmas my partner was out of time - she sent a favorite paper pack of mine.

Now make/buy/decorate a box for your partners items (no all the items don't have to fit in it) and ship them all on time!!

That's one of the great things about Gibbs you are challenged to do things you've never done before. It's great, and every one is wo wonderfully supportive of each other as we go through our learning phases.

Welcome Back Saundra and Welcome Aboard GrannyAnne! I think we were in a swap together last year. Don't remember which one but I remember the name.

I believe I have the list up to date to this point. If I missed anyone, let me know.

Hi Paula, go to see you here too. All is well at my house. I've been away from swaps because of the flaking and I was getting a little tired of putting my heart & soul into a swap and getting flaked on. But I am back and I'm sure this won't happen here. I know several people in this swap and I'm looking foward to the chatting.

I may need some help with the things we are to do - eg: how many is a set of ATC's/Card fronts and a banner with bling. I haven't done a banner before and I don't want to disappoint my partner. I am pretty much clear on the rest until I get my partner and have already got some ideas!

thanks for your help girls. Now to find my old post for the MQ

Day 2, How many ATC's are in a set? Up to you, I'd say 4, but that's just my opinion
Day 3, how many christmas cards do we make? Again up to you, at least 4 I think
Day 9, papers from my cuddlebug? what exactly does this mean? Using your cuttlebug to make cuts or embossed images from your die cuts or folders.
Day 11, by goodies to stay cozy, do you mean scrapbook goodies or things like socks and stuff? Yes, be creative

Alright, off to PM all my info LOL
