You can buy beads at a craft store or refurbish/repurpose an old necklace. Threading together is variable. If I think of it I will see if I have extras to do it for you too. Or to send along (need to dig my supplies out.)

Trust me I didn't know much until recently. :-) thanks for asking for support on that!!!

So are there seven of us now? I still have the beads that i bought for my failed bead swap with dd 3 years ago. I was half thinking about just using them for this swap, but they are pretty specific to her (her nickname while in utero was Conejita--little bunny--and the beads are little silver bunnies) But since there aren't very many of us participating in this swap (yet?!) i think I might use the as filler between the beads from our swap.

Currently 7 I will also wait until the end of today. Hopefully a few mamas join us.

Looks like we are at 7 for the final count. Please mail 7 beads (or sets of beads) to me along with an enclosed self addressed stamped (postage paid) envelope. A bubble mailer in a paper envelope works really well.
I messaged you all with my address. If you want to send a few extras in case someone jumps on board after today that is great and if not great too :-)
To our overseas mama please forward finds to my Paypal account once you have an idea of shipping.

Is it too late to join?

No! I'm sure it's not, especially since no one has even bought/sent beads yet. Plus, eight makes for a nice round, even number for stringing beads and I was hoping to do a larger, hanging middle pendant, so your addition serves my purposes well wink1.gif

FarmerMama please join. You could add the beads to my envelope from the May swap and add postage!! And add a self addressed stamped paper envelope to go over the bubble mailer when you mail back to me! Works out perfectly.

The Michaels near me has a sale for 55% off loose beads this week, so I'm going to go check that out. Hopefully I find something cute. Last time I knew I wanted bunnies and was on a mission for that, this time I have no idea!

I have a quick (maybe silly... blame it on pregnancy brain haha) question... since there are 8 of us in total, i'm sending you 7 beads? or should i send you one to be sent back to myself?

Please sned 8, that way (pregnancy brain) I don't have to remember who sent which bead and can just make sure we all get 8 back total.... Does that make sense?

post #40 of 74

Hmmm...  Good question.  I was going to send 8.  I bought some pretty ones.  I just have to mail them.  There were so many pretty beads that I bought some extra for myself and I'm not normally a beader.  They are just so pretty to look at.
