Hello ladies!
This is the last call for all those interested in the birth bead swap to register in our facebook group. I'll be posting my address this week so that we can start sending beads, I can sort them and send them back out.
The group name is MDC August 2010 DDC.

Just requested!

Welcome!
I've added everyone who has requested. And I posted my mailing address. I'm happy to sort the beads and send them back to everyone.

I plan on buying a few extra beads in case we get some late joiners.

thanks again for organizing this!! I can send you some small baggies (snack size) to keep the beads from busting out of the envelopes too.

what is a birth bead swap?
babycatcher12's Avatar babycatcher12 05:10 PM 05-05-2010
A birth bead swap is where we buy beads for those interested and make our own birth bracelet or necklace to wear leading up to or during the birthing. Some include little verses or blessings for the baby with their beads.
Everyone in the group will buy enough beads for everyone else (right now about 25), and sends them to me. I'll sort them and send packages of beads back. Then you can arrange them and string them on your own.
I'm in a rush, so I hope this makes sense. If anyone else wants to chime in feel free...

I'm excited... there's a bead store in Ann Arbor! Very soon I'll go and play with all of the pretty beads.
