How about a quick swap? Have ISO's by Wed, April 20th, I'll match up over the weekend, and we all ship by Friday.... (no delay!)

Sound good to anyone?

Value $25 (notice, a little higher than sometimes!)

MUST have DC, unless shipping internationally. Also, please note if you live internationally on your ISO.


Thanks... lets get going!

So in an all included swap we send to everyone participating? I think I can do that, It's just MWM, and sunfairy, and me? I'll PM you some DVD titles, Midwesternmama, so you can let me know what you'd like. And if you are making me what I *think* your making me, then a little late is just fine

-Placemats, Cloth Napkins, possible Table Cloth (solid colors (lavendar, sage, or cream) or simple block pattern, no flowers or such)
-Woman's Full XL Apron for cooking (something not too busy and preferably thick!)

-XL or XXL T-shirts(grey, red, navy, blue, green, white etc...no stains or tears) We live in t-shirts! Anything in good shape, no bands, profanity or anything otherwise offensive, prefer words over pictures. Company tshirts or event tshirts and such are fine. pm with ?'s.
-Dying Kit or dyes for the dipes (i'm lost on how to get started but really wanna try)

I might be in if the reverse swap match-ups are posted by Wed.

There are a couple packages I could send, although it would be easier if the value was $20 instead of $25.
