I'd love to make something for another momma on this board. Anybody interested? For instance, I have some super cute girly wool that would make the cutest soaker. We could do it like a big swap. Or maybe keep things secret and just assign matches? So mommas that aren't crafty can buy a small gift or send some things they already have? What do you think?

That sounds like fun! I'd even be up for receiving someone's old newborn boy stuff since I only have newborn girl clothes from dd. But crafty sounds fun too.

Sounds like fun to me! I am not so crafty, although I make nice aromatherapy teething bean bags that babies seem to love (my neice at least!) so I could do those or some of the things we have around here!<br><br>
(If anyone wants a bottle warmer, let me know!!!)

Maybe I should edit the title of the thread...if you aren't crafty you could join in and just send a small gift. Sound good? Anybody want to come up with a value of the gifts?<br><br>
I guess I need to come up with some sort of short questionaire that we answer in the thread, and then people could PM me their choices of who they want to send to. Maybe I'll close the thread for sign-ups in a week (or 2?) so more mommas see it and can join in <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I wonder if doing something more like a reverse swap might not be easier so that instead of questionarres and such, people could just post options about what they could make or give and others could pick and then who and what you are getting could still be a secret. That way people could also note things they are ISO (like someone mentioned baby clothes for a different gender, for example).<br><br>
Just a thought <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thanks for organizing this!<br><br>

I'm in! A crafty reverse swap sounds cool. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
(Although, I'll probably be the one who buys a small gift because I don't know how to knit, or sew! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> )<br><br>
So would there be a seperate thread or something, where we all list what we can make and/or what we could use?

I'm in too! Would it be cheating if I recruited my mom to do the sewing or knitting (if necessary) since I'm not crafty *at all*?

A reverse swap sounds great! So we would post a list of items we have to offer and then people would PM me privately with a list of the items they would like from what is being offered (maybe their top 3 wants?). I would then make matches and PM people the username/address of the person they are sending to. Do I have the process right?

I'm up for another swap! I'm pretty sure we'll need to organize this on another board like we did for the bead swap, since MDC has strict rules regarding swaps.
