I figured I'd organize Novembers swap.
If you're interested, post your iso list here.

It will be a $20 swap plus shipping. Please add atleast delivery confirmation to the package so you can track it. It seems the p.o. has been losing more pkgs lately.

Post your lists here between now and monday the 20th. Add and change it as much as you like.

Then, between, monday October 21st and Thursday October 23rd (no later than 12 pm EST), email me at [email protected] with November MDC swap as the subject.
Be sure to include your name, your MDC name, the people that you can do packages for and how many packages you can do.

If you have $40 worth of stuff for me, you can say MAJiC Mama x2
If you only have $20 worth of stuff, you just list their name.

I will post the match ups in a separate post here on the Trading Post, if all goes well, no later than Sunday the 26th. Hopefully I can have it ready before then.

Then you email or pm your swappee for addresses and mail your packages out no later than Saturday November 1st!!!!

Thanks mamas! I'm looking forward to another fun swap

For momma:
