Moving this over here. Please check in before the end of next week. I am going to have to get used to this board! UGH!

WE ARE CLOSED!

Welcome to the annual 12 days of Christmas swap. I have hosted this swap for several years with some sort of variation. This is a partner swap.

The due date to ship WITH DELIVERY CONFIRMATION will be December 4, 2010. That gives your package TEN days to arrive in order for the opening to begin on the 14th. This is NON NEGOTIABLE!

How it works: I will list 12 words/phrases/things and you interpret them how you see fit for your partner. Day one will have ONE thing either made/bought; then wrapped and tagged. Day two will have TWO things either made/bought/mix wrapped and tagged. And so on and so on.

THE MAX AMOUNT YOU MAY SPEND (not including shipping) IS 25.00.
I would LIKE for you to keep the boxes to a LARGE FLAT RATE PRIORITY box but understand that sometimes that does not work. At least HALF of the swap MUST BE HANDMADE OR HOMEMADE. Really get to know your partner and put your best effort in this.

I will require that you check in at least once a week since this is a LONG swap. Keep those master questionnaires and wish lists up to date to help your partner out.

You and your partner may substitute TWO DAYS with different words if you BOTH agree to this.

Wrapping and tagging the days are a MUST. It is half the fun of the swap.

You and your partner will decide the order for which you will open your items, either day 1-12 or day 12-1. You may start on the 13th of December and end of Christmas Even or start on the 14th of December and end on Christmas; that part is up to you two.

PICTURES MUST BE POSTED! You need to work this out with your partner before hand to ensure that pictures are posted daily or weekly while the opening is going on.

I will take signups until AUG 27, 2010. I will then pair you up via random.org.

This is what I need from you:

PM me your mailing address with full name (real and message board) AND let me know if you wish to do ALL homemade/handmade or a combination of both made and bought. This will help me pair you up via random.org.

I also need to know if you are willing to ship to Canada or elsewhere!


Answer the following questions and keep them updated along with your MQ:

1. What is your favorite color?
2. What is your favorite embellishment to use?
3. Do you scrap/make cards/or alter the most?
4. IF you scrap, what size do you prefer?
5. What is your LEAST favorite color(s)?
6. Name three carts that you would like cuts from
7. Are you a digital creator or hybrid or straight paper?
8. What is your favorite season/holiday?
9. What is your favorite snack/drink?
10. What is your favorite scent? Least favorite scent?
11. List at least 10 things you would love to have keeping in mind the spending limit on this swap:

I will post get to know you questions throughout the swap that you should answer to help your partner and to get to know all of you better.

Any questions?

OK let the sign ups begin!

So glad that some of you are finding your way here. I am not sure what I think of this site yet BUT it is just BETA and hubby tells me that this is the not the "real" thing yet? I dont know. He is the computer guru. I do have to say that the gray is sort of sad and depressing and hard to read though Oh well. We will get used to it or find somewhere else I guess right? LOL!

Hi Lynne and Crystal!! Also, Hello to everyone!!

I came over yesterday and checked a few things out. I do like the Cricut Smileys. I'll probably be using them more than I ever did the other ones. BigGrin I'm sure we'll all get used to it.

I noticed that my avatar is not on - have to check it out. Maybe since I am a couple of years older, they think I need to put a new pix in there - LOL! Will have to check it out. Might need some help doing that. (MY DD is my help desk - she'll get me through it.)

Lynne, whenever I get my craft room in decent enough order to take more pix, I will and send them to you. That way you can see why everytime Jack walks in it he shakes his head, laughs, and says that I am out of control. Well, maybe I am, but I ain't gonna admit it!!

October 2 and 3 there is going to be a big stamping show here. There will be lots of vendors and lots of stamps. Oh, am I in trouble!! I went last year for the first time and had a great time. Five friends and I are going on Saturday. We're going out to breakfast first (to build up strength for shopping) and then to the show. Getting excited about that!

Hey y'all. Hope everyone is doing well. I am excited I have been getting some things done for this swap. There are still somethings I need to get for Danielle BigGrin. I personally like the boards. It is much faster. I hope they bring the siggy back though. That made it a little more easier.

Renee Razz ( and I do love the smileys. So darn adorable!)

Rhonda I know I am stuck with ya but good think I like most everyone LOL!

Glad most are finding their way over here.

Susan I read somewhere that if your avatar would not show up after trying that you had to make it so on the old board? I guess they are linked? Not sure.

Ok back to the 30 baby shower favors I was hired to make!

Hi Everyone,

Wow I go away for a week and everyone moves! lol Nice try hiding from me.

We had an awesome trip to Cali and love the area we are going to be living in. We spent some time with
family checking out the area and trying to figure out where we want to live. It was great!

Ok I haven't figured out this new board at all. It seems pretty simply but maybe someone already playing around here can save me some time. Is there a way to save contact like before? It doesn't look like there is an address book here? Anyone have any idea?

I asked and right now there is no online address book or buddy list. I guess it may come later?

So I got all 30 baby shower jars done and I am STILL worn out and that was last night! I have a banner to make today and print the labels and I am done! YAY!
