Okay, here's the plan thus far.
I would like to have the sign ups end about the end of January/very beginning of February. When you sign up, please PM me your address. When I receive your PM, I will PM you my address.
When I get the final count of who all is participating at the end of the month, I will try and PM everyone and let you know the number of people participating (It will definitely be in a thread, in the case I don't get PMs sent out.)
Each person picks out a bead/beads that they like, one (or one set) for each participant, and send them to me. If you want, you can enclose personal note of encouragement, a quote that inspires you, or something similar.
I will go through, and separate beads, one package for each mama, with one bead (or one set of beads, if you pick more than one per participant) from everyone else.
When you receive your birth beads, you can string them onto a necklace, a bracelet, or any way that you would like.
These serve as reminder of other mamas due around the same time as you, your DDC support group, and that we're all experiencing similar, and thinking about you, while you labor. :)
