Okay ladies the swap is on! The deadline to post your ISO's and pm me with your address is July 9th... sound good!
I'll then match everyone up by the end of that week and we can get the ball rolling so nobody pops before presents!
Let's say we'll get our packages out by July 25th or so... end of July at the latest.

Here we go!

Okay ladies I only have addresses for bonanzajellybean, veganf, chumani, jesamin, nu_mommy, LillyGrace'sMommy, Mama2 '05'06, carolina mom2be, and azreial. I match everyone up on Sunday, so if you post your ISO's and pm me your address by then you can still join!

Hey Ladies! I just matched everyone up and sent out pm's. It was kinda hard because we only had ten participants this time but I tried my best! Let's try to get our packages out by the next couple of weeks if possible.. have fun, mamas!

Anything to make this tired stressed out momma feel better!
Cloth for sewing projects, especially if I can use them to make cloth diapers or slings!

Can provide:
Home-made blankets, let me know the color you want and I'll crochet it for you!
Taggies blankies (I make'em but they are extra special!)
Scrapbook stuff
A custom made diaper bag......let me know what color, or what kind of personality you want, and I'll go fabric hunting for a good deal!
And who knows what else I have around here.....definitely tons of girl stuff!!!!

I'm glad they were good. I was crossing my fingers later that none of you were allergic to nuts, because I realized I probably shouldn't have put pecans in them without asking first!
