I was wondering if anyone had set up a bead swap for a blessingway necklace for us December mommas? If anyone would be interested, if one is not set up let's get one going. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

yay yay! we did this with my last ddc- and i loved having my beads during early labor. great meditative tool/reminder!<br><br>
lesson learned, though- we lost A LOT of beads in the mail. apparently when the envelopes were "squeezed" through the machinery at the PO, the beads were squeezed out. lots of empty envelopes with no beads inside :-(<br><br>
not sure what to do about that one....

I think it would be cool. It's the first I've heard of a blessingway necklace, but I like the idea.

I'd be in for a bead swap. We should probably wait a few weeks though to get the DDC a little more solidified. I regret not participating with my last DDC.

I'm in as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Although just a reminder to check out the DDC rules and remember it has to be organized either in the swaps forum or off the boards.

I believe we created a yahoo group last time around so it was MDC "legal". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Gotsta be careful with a mod amongst us! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/2whistle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="2whistle">

In my last DDC, we all sent 20 beads (or however many were in our DDC) to one person, plus like $2, and she created packages for everyone and sent them all out. Then we each did our own thing with the beads and posted pics -- I think it was a yahoo group.<br><br>
We also did a gift exchange towards the end. We have a zillion months together, it feels like!

I'd love to do it too! I have a vague idea of how it works and I think it'd be awesome to have during labor. Then, it'd be like I have the support of tons of like-minded women helping me through labor! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I just sent a paypal label with my beads.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Yay! I read about the idea of a bead swap for making laboring necklaces just after I had DS and thought it would be so neat to do. I'm really into beading anyhow and I've been eyeing the Family Tree Glass pendants for a while and some new beads from you lovely mamas along with perhaps some amber beads is what I've dreamt about making for my next birth! Count me in please.
