I was thinking we could have a cyber shower. Not anytime soon but we could all go ahead and sign up for it and all so that we have plenty of time to figure out what we will get our shower partner. I was thinking it could be a "blind" shower and we wouldn't find out who was getting our presents until we get them. I think it would be fun. I could handle matching everyone up and all. Anyone want to do this???

Could everyone who wants to be included in the swap please e-mail me at Formulawulf@comcast.net I am working on getting everyone on a list and will be making the matches in a couple weeks.

Anyone who hasn't already e-mailed me and who wants in please e-mail me at Formulawulf_pj@yahoo.com.

I will be moving this weekend and will no longer have the comcast addy.

Sounds like fun!

How would it be blind, though? Don't we have to know who we're sending it to?

Well it would be blind in that you wouldn't know who yours was coming from.

Should we think about what we need/want? Should there be a cost limit?

great idea!
I think there should be a price limit...
Also when it gets closer what we could do is each momma write a small wish list or something.
Like we have 1 post that says wish list and each momma partisipating would reply and then we could see what our momma wanted... make sense? :LOL

I think we should have a cost limit and minimum. Could we say no less than $20 and no more than $50???? If that isn't agreeable then let me know ammounts that would be.

I think we should think up what we need/want. To save room on the boards everyone could just e-mail their wish lists to me and once we are all paired up i could send the wish lists out.

We could also add on the wish lists if we are willing to have gently used items also. Personally i know i would be open to a used item if it was a higher end thing and could be bought in excellent condition used for much less. If we do a used trade though it would have to be excellent - new condition items only.

Whats everyone think of that? Any ideas?

I would like to be involved, but part of me feels superstitious as I m/c at 11.5 weeks last time.

I would love if homemade items could be included. You can't put a pricetag on that!

I think Mama made items would be great as gifts from the more creative Mamas. Definately priceless.

I totally understand the supersticious feelings. This is why i said no time soon for the exchange. I was just thinking i could go ahead and get everyone on board that wants to be so i would go ahead and get everything situated and ready for when it is time.

I was thinking a good time would be sometime in February or March for an actualy exchange date. I could send out the e-mails to everyone on who their partner is and what their wish list is sometime before Christmas or in January that way there would be plenty of time to get a nice shower package together without having to rush.

If anyone wants to go ahead and send theirs in with their info you can send it to FormulaWulf@aol.com.

I will need your MDC screen name, real name, mailing address and wish list. The info i am sent won't be given to anyone other than myself and the partner you are matched up with. I can either match people up by region, due dates, wish lists (ie someone who wants homemade with someone who wants to give homemade) so please let me know if you are one of our creative Mamas. OR i could just put everybody in a hat and pull names.

im in $50 is alittle steep for my lowly budget though. i dont want to nix someone out of a good partner. im good at $30, maxed at 40 with a heafty explanation to dh

i'd totally be good with gently used. if it survived a baby and is still in good enough condition to be handed down...that sounds like good quality to me

I agree with Jenn about $50 being a little steep for me. 20-30 is much more in my range.

Christine, we're going to do a gift swap later on. Probably in February or March. Oh, and could you reduce the size of your signature to two lines please? Thank you!

Sounds like everyone is more for the min/limit set at between $20-$40? I am trying to get up a set of guidelines so i can edit the original post to include the guidelines. So far i have this.

1. price minimun is $20 and max is $40.

2. Gently used items are acceptable.

3. Homemade items are acceptable.

4. Sometime in February or March. (We can tack down a definate date close to then)

Anything anyone doesn't agree with or wants to add let me know.

I'm in too! Only sugestion is that we dont have a price minimum. $40 or $50 would be too high for me too. I agree that homemade items are much more valuable.
