The *Official* Bead Swap Thread! - Beads are on the way!

post #1 of 199
Thread Starter 
This here is the official birth bead swap thread! Post here if you would like to join! To those new at this, once we get a number of how many people want to join, go buy that number of beads. It can be a special color, a meaningful stone, or just plain pretty! Some like to attach words of encouragement, a poem, or other things, but it's not required.

Once I have the list, I will message you my mailing address. Once I receive them all, I split them up so that each gets one bead from everyone and I send them back to you. (A pre-addressed envelope with some postage on it is much appreciated.). Those little bubble envelopes work well, but use whatever will get them there in one piece.

The List Send me your 23 beads by June 1st (address will be forthcoming)

Thanks for organizing it, GISdiva! By the way, what does GISdiva mean, anyway? I think that all the time...

LOL...GIS is what I do for a living, it stands for Geographical Information Systems. Fancy words for "computerized mapping". Diva because I'm often the only woman in the room. wink1.gif

I didn't do this with my DDC with DD so I'd like to play this time :)

I didn't know that there was such thing as MDC when I was pregnant with DD! I wish I had, though.

I would love to join! I missed out on this in my last DDC.

I'm in too. Don't know how the postage would work - are you in the US? I don't think my Canadian stamps would get you far though lol. I'll find a way to get some $ to you though wink1.gif

Oh wow, I don't think I've ever seen a mama happier to be in labor than you!! Your beads look great.

I don't know how that works, but I'm sure someone here does and we'll figure it out!

 

I'm actually wearing DS's birth beads today, I just felt like it and it matched my sweater.  :)

Anyone else want to join?  I think we'll give it few more days or through the weekend and call it so we can start buying the correct number of beads, if no one has any objections.

 

There must be more, I counted 30 beads on my first necklace... *poke, poke*  orngtongue.gif
