Second Trimester Swap for August '08 DDC Mamas...

Sign-ups and Lists posted by March 21, 2008

This Swap is for August '08 DDC Mamas. The theme for this swap is "Something for Baby". I will separate the group into two, one for those who'd like to receive CLOTH DIAPERS, and the other opened for SOMETHING FOR BABY. This could get a little confusing....So PLEASE post what you'd like to receive and what you would like to give. That way I can match mamas accordingly.
When all mamas have posted their lists (March 21) choose 3 or more choices of the mama you'd like to get a gift for, whether it be a CLOTH DIAPER or SOMETHING FOR BABY...Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Please also check the location of the mamas you choose. If you choose and intenational mama I am assuming that you are okay with shipping out of the country.

Swap item(s) should have a value of at least $15 (not including shipping). Mama made gifts and gently used items can have a dollar amount added to them. If you have any questions on the value of an item or anything else, please feel free to PM me.

Also remember MDC Swap Rules and Guidelines. You must have proof of shipping, that can be a post office receipt or delivery confirmation. This is helpful in case of disputes.

Questionnaire (cut and paste into your post):

Location (state or country):
Mama made ok? Gently used ok?
Allergies?
Dislikes (colors, characters, patterns, anything you dislike regarding diapers or baby items):
What would you like to receive (CLOTH DIAPERS or SOMETHING FOR BABY)?
What would you like to give (CLOTH DIAPERS or SOMETHING FOR BABY)?

Wishlist (what kind of cloth diapers would you like or what kind of baby items would you like?):

Anything else you think may help the giver:

Location Washington State

Mama made: Definitely Gently used Yes

Allergies? no but I am sensitive to strong scents/perfumes

Dislikes (colors, characters, patterns, anything you dislike regarding diapers or baby items): Not into characters. Would love some cute covers but have tonnes of newborn dipes. I love cute hats and would love some babylegs (homemade or not) Doesn't have to be handmade but they are very welcome. I wish I could hand make more.

What would you like to receive (CLOTH DIAPERS or SOMETHING FOR BABY)? Something for baby or diaper cover for newborn.

What would you like to give (CLOTH DIAPERS or SOMETHING FOR BABY)? Something for baby would be my first choice but am happy doing either.
(Probably won't be homemade, although I am going to try to knit some things up with my mom the end of March so ???)

Wishlist (what kind of cloth diapers would you like or what kind of baby items would you like?): Anything unique but not too cutsey. I love bold colors and not typical "baby" stuff. Little snugglies and hats for baby are favorites!

Anything else you think may help the giver: Don't know if this is a boy or a girl and won't find out. So gender neutral. Pretty much any color but pink. I'll pile on the pink if it is a girl once she is born. Thank you!!!

Mama made ok? Gently used ok? mama made is my favorite! gently used is great
Allergies? cat hair if excessive, cigarette smoke odor
Dislikes (colors, characters, patterns, anything you dislike regarding diapers or baby items): none (well, I don't want neon diapers)
What would you like to receive (CLOTH DIAPERS or SOMETHING FOR BABY)? cloth diapers
What would you like to give (CLOTH DIAPERS or SOMETHING FOR BABY)? cloth diapers or a wool soaker/shorties for a newborn

Wishlist (what kind of cloth diapers would you like or what kind of baby items would you like?): I love fitted diapers, and I've never diapered a newborn, so I need newborn or small fitteds. I'm not particular about brands, so much as them having snaps, not aplix.

Anything else you think may help the giver: Whatever you send is great! I don't know whether we're having a girl or a boy, but I'm not picky about gender specific diapers. I'll put flowers on a boy or dinosaurs on a girl. Thank you!

I'm glad someone bumped this up to the front, because I totally forgot about it. Right now I've got too many balls in the air to participate, so please take me out of the swap. Happy swapping to all involved!
