I think most swappers have gotten caught up (I hope) and it's time for another swap You mamas have been busy getting the kids ready for school and dealing with lots of daily emergencies so this swap is for you! All swaps should be for MOM! (if you want to add something for kids that's between you and the swappee)

Ideas may include-health and beauty products, candles, stationary, accessories, jewelry, journals, artwork, you get the idea....
Materials limit roughtly $10 but you know how the game works ladies

Sign up for 1 or more swaps by end of day September 22 and assignments will be out no later than September 24.
All swaps should be mailed out by October 8.

Looking forward to another great swap!
Ann
(Please do not sign up until you are caught up with all previous swaps )

I'd love to participate!! This will be my first swap!

I can make blankets (I have some purple and off white MM microfleece that I love. Or use some other prefered material.), jewelry - charm bracelets and earings or wine charms - to mark each person's wine glass. I can also make some mama cloth if that is wanted.

I am so excited!!!

*Edited to add that I can also make bath salts.

I want to participate too. I have never done a craft swap either.


I can do homemade rubberstamped cards. I was thinking a variety pack so you have some for all occasions. I could also knit dish/face cloths. I can also rubberstamp on candels. I could make a maya style sling (maybe not just for the mama but they sure do make her life easier). I normally add a padded sholder.

Oh crud!

I haven't been on this forum for quite some time so missed this swap. When's the next one? I would love to get in on it. I loved the last one I did.

Sahara if you're out there, I'm looking forward to wearing the hat you gave me last year

Hahamommy~ How are the bags holding up?

Oh Kerri-I'm speechless The blanket is awesome!! I thought it was going to be small-like a baby blanket for some reason so I was thrilled to see it so big-my son has not let go of it though so I may have to fight him for it I LOVE batik so that was also a great surprise-that's why I love these swaps!!
A million thanks!!

And Baileysmommy-I've already used 2 of the cards! They are the best.

All the best to everyone!
