Altered Findings Swap!

Hi Everyone!

We decided to do a swap with things we can use on our canvases;boxes;frames,etc.!

Our Goal is to collect things for a project like my canvas:



Here is the list of participants!   17 Total Creative People this time around!!



Christine
Susan
Shannon
Dee Dee
Sharon
Eileen
Kristen
Johnna
Boni
Brenda
Jimmie
Gerriann
Barb
Lucinda
Cheryl
Mitzi
Darcie

Now as far as how much to send?  I just ask that you be as generous as you can be, totally up to you.  Everyone is doing different things so you send what you can.  Please have everything to me by the 12th!  Let me know when you are ready for my address and I will PM it or email it to you if you do  not already have it!  Please remember to put your items in a plastic bag with each persons name clearly marked on the outside of the bag!  Dont forget to send the $5.35 for return postage as well please!

Thanks so much for signing up everyone! 
       

I am getting some questions in regards to the swap!

I am sorry I made this confusing and hope to clarify what we are doing here!

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions!

When you sign up for a category you will be sending in enough items for EVERY PERSON IN THE ENTIRE SWAP!  So EVERYONE will be receiving pretty much the same things, and will get things from ALL categories!    The idea was to get back a bag or box FULL of a mixture of items for this project!  I don't think I was clear about that.

So if you sign up for wooden embellishments and there are 2 other people in that category that DOES NOT mean you are sending enough  only for those 2 people.  YOU NEED TO SEND IN ENOUGH ITEMS FOR ALL PEOPLE IN THE ENTIRE SWAP!

We will chat about this again on Thursday at my UStream show!

Sign Ups for this swap will close tonight, December 3rd at 7:00 Central!

Please let me know if you have changed your mind in regards to joining the swap or the category you chose!


Let's get swapping!  Below are the groups of things listed.  I have also included a MISC. group in case you don't see a category for what you want to send!

Here is what you do:

1.  Pick what categories you would like to send stuff in for

2.  Prepare a bag of items you signed up for, for EACH PERSON in our swap.  (EVERYONE will be
     receiving a bag from each person in the swap!  If 12 people sign up you will get 12 bags, one from EVERY CATEGORY)

3.  Please help me out by labeling each persons name on your bag of goodies!  (After I close the swap, I will list each persons name to make this easier for you and so you can see how many people you need to send things in for.

4.  Place your address inside the box where you want to receive your return items.

5.  Include $ 5.35 (priority mail return postage for your goodies back to you!)  If you would like to paypal me the money, please contact me first.  You can make your own label if you would like as well, just please make sure it is for a small priority mail box!

If you have ANY questions just ask!

Pick as many categories as you like and lets get swapping!!! Post what categories you would like to be added to and I will get you added!!!!
