Sign Ups Close January 12 (Please have lists final by then)
Send picks by January 14
Send Packages by January 31

Participants shall not be involved in more than 3 swaps at any given time.

Packages must be mama/papa/granny/grampy made but use your imaginations, past swaps have had diapers, clothes, breads, sweets, jams, hand dyed yarns, fabric, toys, and many other things.

Post as many different packages as you like and do not forget to post how many packages you can send.

This swap is open to all 50 states and Canada and international mommas so please keep that in mind when determining how many packages you'd like to send. If you are unable to send to Canada or internationally please post that in your "I Can Make" Lists.

PLEASE number & name your packages, they should be of a $15-$20 value. PM me if you have questions, list how many of each item you can make. Pics are great, but optional. If you can offer multiple packages of the same thing, please note that in one listing, rather than list the same package multiple times, it makes for much easier swapping. (ex. Package #1, handmade books (3 available)

All participants must have some proof that a package has been sent. This can be DC, Insurance, Customs forms, PO receipt that can be scanned, etc...

If a member does not send out a swap package in the allotted time and is not actively working with the recipient to resolve the situation, the moderator of the forum is to be contacted and they will lose their TP access until the situation is resolved. If you are doing a side swap, these can often take more time until your assigned swaps are completed. Please do not take on more side swaps than you can handle in a timely manner.

We have feedback again! After the swap, please leave feedback for your partner. To do so, right click on your partner's name, and go to their public profile. You will see a feedback area. All previous feedback appears to be in there now.

Package 1 Origami Mobile I can make 1
I can do cranes, flowers, or butterflies. You pick if you prefer a traditional mobile like the one pictured or if you'd prefer a single line of cranes, starting large and getting smaller (fits great in a corner). You pick the color theme you want, rainbow, earth tones, mixed.
Photo 1
Photo 2
Photo 3

Package 2 Set of 8 nesting origami boxes I can make 2
You pick the color theme you want, rainbow, earth tones, mixed. Boxes start out from 12x12 paper and work down to 5x5 paper. Finished boxes are about 6 inches square for the largest and get smaller as they go.

Package 3 Stand-up Display for Dad I can make 1
I always have a hard time finding scrapbook papers or designs that are right for dads. This time, great luck! A fold out display for all those great pictures of a new (or long time) dad. Measurements for all the photos are already on it.
Picture 1"
Picture 2
Picture 3
Picture 4
Picture 5

Package 4 Dream Catcher I can make 3
Approximately 8 inches across. Natural vine circle with cream colored threads. Some small stones and shells for decoration and good dreams.

Package 5 Cinnamon Spiral Oatmeal Bread I can make 1
2 large loafs or a bunch of small loafs of this yummy bread. Try it toasted with butter or jelly. Also fantastic right off the loaf.

Package 6 A Picture’s Worth 1,000 Words I can do 3
I guess that makes this package worth 6,000 words. A set of 6 5x7 prints. Your choice of animals in reverse (so funny, they’ve made great bathroom art) or garden pictures.

Package 7 Noteworthy Pictures I can do 2

Package 8 Card Organizer I can do 2
I love making or buying cards for people, but then I always manage to misplace them before the person's birthday or anniversary. This card organizer has helped a lot! A hard cover binding with a pleated spine. Inside are 6 envelopes labeled with the months to keep cards organized, rather than lost under the couch. It'd also make a great place to stash photos or notes as a journal. I'll customize it to your choice of colors (although the inside envelopes will be manilla) and label the envelopes as you choose with months or some other organizational strategy (notes, recipes, bills, names...)
**I can also do this sized to business envelopes for coupons or receipts.
Book View 1
Book View 2

Package 9 Playsilk Treasure Map I can do 2
Tea dyed playsilk with an antique looking (all browns) treasure map. Islands, rivers, sunken ships, even a sea monster. All hand drawn and unique, including writing in code. (I’ll send the code if you want, or just enjoy making up your own stories.) I’ll toss in a handful of gold and silver colored metal coins and glass stones to start the treasure hunting. Let me know if you’d like it all packaged up fun and mailed directly to your little treasure hunter.

Package 20 Jarred Soup Mixes I can do 2
Looking for a simple, warming gift for the holidays? I try to keep a set of these on-hand just in case I need a last minute gift. Who doesn’t love soup?
Set of three jars of soup mixes. Large canning jars filled with everything you need for a tasty soup, except the liquid and (if needed ) meat. I'll package them up pretty and include ingredients and instructions on a tag. Here are some of your choices, and most likely I can do a bunch of other types as well.

Dara~ So excited you are swapping again

I am wondering what sizing the baby sweater comes in? Could you do a toddler sweater as a double swap perhaps?

Baraka, what size toddler? I'd have to check to make sure I have enough yarn. what material would you want it in? The baby sweater on my package list was a newborn size, i think!

edit - read you want size 3T-4T...takes me awhile to knit something like that so I might not have time for the swap. maybe a side trade though...

Photos for the Father Frame

Cover 3.25x3.25
Inside
3 4x6 vertical photos
4x4 photos
3x5 vertical photo
3.75x3.75 photo
You could easily replace any of the photos inside with a poem or story about the dad if you didn't have enough pictures.

Oh so sorry.I meant to write that in my post.I gave that one as a gift so I don't have the exact measurements but it was about 8" tall.It fit 3 soft balls that were about the size of grapefruits in it.

if there was enough of my offerings for you to side swap with me, i'd love that!

i'm looking for clothes for dd for next year, which is why the sizing is 3-t to 4-t... so no rush, we've got a year lol

& if this will take long, do consider it a 3x swap!
also... this is totally off the wall, but i have a $50 GC to Honeybaked Ham up for side swapping .. i know that's quite random

I can do more than one package of the baby socks / booties - I see those as different things but it can be worked out!

but socks for a two year old are bigger so I may have to say just one pair per swap in that size...

Baraka, do you do pregnancy / labor related packages? I'm sure we can come up with something!
