I want to be in this time. Are there any rules? Like does it have to be brand new? I know some of us may go to DS or other sites of that sort. Thanks.

Maybe we could have this be a "something for baby swap"...so that those who are not cding would be able to participate...and then we could have a wish list of what we would want for our babies...

Just a thought.

I would so be up for that! I have C/Ds that a friend gave us and we never used them, so I could swap with a mama who wants them and get something I can use!

Yeah!

I would be interested too. I am cd but I just packed my box of baby things and have TONNES of dipes from my ds so something else would be nice... I would love a cute hand knit or hand panted baby hat.

ok count me in please! I can do a handmade CD newborn diaper, as I just finished up sewing up a bunch for the babe; but would also be happy to paired with someone not cd'ing since I already have a nice stash. Whatever works best for the swap.
