Here are the guidelines:

Post your ISO list as a reply to this thread thru Friday, November 28th. This will give people enough time to receive current swap packages and to edit their lists, as well as get thru Thanksgiving without a huge rush.
Each package value should be $20, not including shipping!!

Starting Saturday November 29th, please email me at [email protected] with your choices for who you are able to send packages to. PLEASE give me more than one choice. If you only send one choice, it really limits how I can match people up. Please have all choices emailed to my by Monday , December 1st at 6pm EST.
Depending on my work schedule that week, I hope to have everyone assigned swap partners by Thursday December 4th AT THE LATEST.
All swap packages need to be mailed no later than the following Wednesday, December 10th , unless you have arranged otherwise with your swap partner.

This will be our last swap before Christmas. So if you are looking for giftables, now is the time to ask.

PLEASE PLEASE enclose a note, or atleast something with your MDC name on it so we can identify who the pkgs are from. I also ask that everyone include delivery confirmation because we've recently had some people not get their pkgs and the sending party didnt include delivery confirmation.

Most of all, lets have fun.

**Reminder. This is a swap generally geared toward gently used items. If you only want brand new, either note that clearly, or don't participate!!!!!!**

Please PLEASE be sure that the package you send has a value of $20 based on the item's condition now, NOT the price it would cost new. I've had a mama, on 2 occasions now (2 different mamas receiving from 2 different people) tell me that the package they've received was in no way near $20, even if it were new. If you can't send a swap box at the value assigned for the swap, please don't request that person's name......

Now hit reply and post your list

Oh, I can't resist. Swaps are so much fun.

I don’t mind used items at all, but I have a real thing about items with stains. Please don’t send me something with stains (or rips, tears, or other damage).

I like homemade things.


Any size large fitted diaper that I can include in my upcoming fitted diaper review, which means that it was recently purchased new from a WAHM and is free from rips, stains, tears. The list below is diapers I already have, so any diaper that is NOT on this list:

4. BizzyB
3. Bottoms Up
4. ChooChoo Booties
5. Cloud 9
6. Coodles Baby
7. Cuddlebuns
8. Darling Diapers
9. Elbee Baby
10. Firefly Diapers
11. First Class Baby
12. Freshies
13. Fuzbaby
14. Lambkin Diapers
15. Lilybottoms
16. Little Lambs
17. Lucy’s Hope Chest
17.5 Luke's Drawers
18. Nanipoos
19. Patchwork Pixie
20. Pinhead diapers

Remember, the above list is diapers I HAVE. I'm looking for diapers not on this list.

tops that spin

Misc Household:

Simple tote bags
“natural” dog biscuits


(note: I'm kind of a fanatic against animal testing-- not picky about brands, but prefer WAHM or natural brands, but must not be tested on animals). Please nothing with artificial ingredients (like dyes and chemicals you can't pronouce) or mineral oil or petroleum products.

Scents: dislike flowery (exception: lavender), patchouli, musky, sandalwood. Love vanilla, fruity (especially citrus), ginger and other spicey or herbal scents
