PLEASE READ THE UPDATE and if you want to be in the gift exchange as well, it'd be helpful to note that on the spreadsheet. thanks mamas
1. Janurary 1st is our sign up by date and January 15th is the mail-by-date.
2.A couple mamas were interested in a gift exchange, if you want to participate in that, just send the gift as well as your beads in the same emvelope. Or note in advance on the spreadsheet that you want to praticipate. I'll swap the gifts around and send them to the mamas who participated.
We did this in my last DDC and it was really fun. You comment to get your name on the list (say we get 10 people), and the host puts their address. Then we all go out and buy 11 of the same bead, and send those, and a self addressed stamped envelope, to the host. Some people send 11 copies of the same cute note or Bible verse. If you are not in the same country as the host, or prefer to have tracking, you don't send the SASE: instead, you agree to a way to send the host return postage money (paypal, basically, which I would be happy to help anyone new sort out, it makes shipping cheaper for you and you get racking into the bargain, at least domestically). Host sends all the beads back, and hopefully none gets lost in the mail. But if one does, that is what the extra bead is for, so the host can re-send one necklace if necessary.
return shipping will be about $4 with an sase in the us, or $3.50 with paypal. If you want to use paypal let me know your email address and I will invoice for the cost when I have the envelopes all filled.
beads should if possible have a hole big enough to fit a regular #2 pencil lead into them. No bead will be rejected based on hole size but it would be easier to thread on a ribbon if the holes are this big.
In the end we each have a pretty necklace's w0rth 0f beads. With this many mamas hopefully we get some fun variety.
If interested, please ADD YOURSELF TO THE GOOGLE DOC.
If you can't figure out the google doc, comment saying that you want in and I will add you :)
