Anyone wanna participate?? We can let this one go a bit longer.

Sign ups by the 11th, lists of who you can send to by the 13th and I'll post matches by the 15th.
Ship by the 1st of August.

$20 per package before shipping. Please include delivery confirmation on your pkgs.

Also, note if you are outside of the lower 48 in the US, so the person sending to you is aware that shipping will be higher

Ok, I am an addict!

(by the way, please note my ALASKA address- shipping is slightly more expensive- just didn't want any surprises!)

Things should have minimal staining, no holes, and dvds should be originals as our player is sometimes picky... thanks.

My 3 BOY babes:

diaper stuff:
Mudpie babies large fitteds really needed
Righteous baby Flag size 2 fitteds
Tykie fitteds large
Cosmic baby fitteds (medium and large)
or similar (quick dry, side closure, prefer hidden snaps or aplix. Also, I love nature prints, bright colors, batiks, medieval prints). NOTHING girly (I don't think I would know what to do with them ) Light staining ok, no holes please
HH ln or EC please medium or large

wool longies Emilio has a pair now, and we want some more! Medium or large will fit at least one of my boys- Angelo and Oscar will need mediums.. Emilio fits larges, but we can adjust between them... AND most of these are out of season for a lot of you!

Motherease airflow prints EC medium or large, bumkins prints, or bummis sww prints

wool care (would really like to try some wool buddies!)

I would DIE to have a FCB size 2 banana print fitted as I have this beautiful FCB size 2 monkey cover... Ah, a girl can dream, but at least I snagged a few FCB fitteds so the cover is now getting worn, at least.

SOME TALENT: I have a lg ivy rose wool cover with appliqued dragonfly that bled... someone know how to dye something well to "fix" it??

Thomas the Tank Engine wood/magnet sets (ANY PIECES! well, except James and his tender as we already have two of them) We have some, but could use more as the three middle boys all love them and "steal" parts from each other all the time. Tracks really would be well loved!

Thomas the Tank engine DVD would be a real winner! Originals please our player is a little picky! We have quite a few videos of them, but no DVDs yet... please pm me with any titles you might have, as I would prefer a DVD that we don't already have a video of...

The boys all have lots of clothing right now as my sister just went crazy over them, so that is pretty well taken care of.

I would like some advocacy tees though...
cloth diapering size 6 mos plus,
adoption size 18 months,
breastmilk size 6mos

and I have never tried ROBEEZ shoes...

soothie brand binkies, playtex nurser silicone nipples, potty learning books

If anyone has Tagalog language tapes (especially for kids, although I don't think they exist)...

books and DVDs of WWII (especially the pacific arena) Originals only please
McArthur (the black and white version or other would be his ALL TIME FAV!)
Midway Island
Any DVDs on the Philippines (even tourist movies would be appreciated, as long as they have scenery! My DH gets homesick. They do not need to be in English)
Any books in Tagalog (pretty far fetched, I know...)
Philippine Islands coffee table books (you know the kind with the beautiful scenery shots...)


Lord of the Rings DVDs (I only have 1) or hardback set of books
Any Star Wars DVDs (don't have any) originals only, our player can be picky..

size XL nursing tops short sleeve

I could use some size XL button down (work appropriate) short sleeve shirts. EC only, please. No low cut, and I prefer those that have straight bottom hems (not curved as I don't tuck- gotta cover the booty) Nothing too short, or buttons that start too low. Nothing really fitted at the sides either, or stretchy.

I also would like some casual clothes especially drawstring capris size XL. I really like the type that has Mideastern or "bohemian" decorations (like around the calf, kwim?) Matching tops would be awesome too! Nothing see-through or too revealing, kwim?

Garden stuff:

I don't really needs POTS, but I would like some garden decorations. You know, the little metal birds that stick in the ground, dragonflies, butterflies, etc. (I saw some at ACE hardware the other day for about $6.99 each new) used is fine, but I would love some sparkles for my garden! Anything pretty to stick in a garden (or hang from my roof over the flower bed) would be great.

Hair clippers (electric) used is fine if clean and in good condition... my local barber is now charging $18 each regardless of age... ACK!

Natural baby wash (for hair and body please, would like to try some different stuff out, so anything that you like...)

Gift cards:
Garden stores (we have ACE, Lowe's, and Home Depot)
Clothing (for me really) (Nordstrom, JCPenney, Sears are the usual places I shop)

I see a few mamas I can send to, so I'm in. I'll be back with my ISO list.

BTW, I am in Hawaii so it may cost a little bit more, depending on what method you ship it. If it's light, it'll cost the same as anywhere else in the US.
