I would love to be a part of this once it transpires. I hope I don't miss it! (New to the group...)

I am in.  Who is organizing? you can find beads at bead stores, farmers markets or craft fairs (Walmart, joannes, or any store with craft supplies with have them as well).

I'm in! I loved doing this with my last ddc. We sent one bead for each mama that wanted to do the bead swap to the bead organizer with a pre paid envelope
Then she sent us our beads
So fun!

That's how mine was arranged, too.  Mothering.com didn't allow swaps or exchanges at the time, that's why we took it to a yahoo group.  Did that rule change?

This is such a beautiful idea! I would love to be included!

Oooh, I love this way of doing it! My previous DDC did one as well but we were to send beads to each person individually, and I completely failed out at ever getting it done. This sounds much easier, just mail one package off! As long as someone is willing to be the organizer! LOL

fernmama - Awesome!!

When does everyone think we should start? Maybe around 18-20 weeks?
post #34 of 48

Yeah, I wasn't planning on signing up for this till I made it past 20 weeks...

I like this idea and was actually going to make my own however I would love to have something during labour knowing the power of strong women was behind it!

 

I like having an organizer, one person we can send out beads to and money for shipping or a prepaid envelope to have the necklace sent back. 

I also suggest we wait til about 20 weeks, so mid May? Maybe set it up then and make sure everyone gets their beads sent out by the end of May so the organizer has plenty of time to get it all together?

I would love to be involved when I'm a little further along!

Hey mama's. most of us are either 20wks or very close. Yay! I was thinking that we should start thinking about beads. If you want to send beads to me with a pre paid envelope by June 15th that would be awesome. smile.gif Message me and I will gladly give you the address. One bead for each mama. I dont know how to do a poll to make the count easier. Anyone want to give that a go?
