The due date for this will be October 13 AT MY HOUSE. That gives you just over 8 weeks to get it to me.

For the goodie grab bag you will fill a small halloween baggie with $3 worth of scrapbook supplies. You can include a small piece of candy if you'd like as well but its not required. No chocolate please just in case it goes somewhere that is warm. The items DO NOT need to be NIP although they should be quality. They also DO NOT need to be Halloween themed, although they can be. I posted an example photo in my gallery last year when I did this swap.

Please bag your items in the little Halloween treat baggies or other Halloween containers. You can usually get 12-20/pk at the dollar store. Mark them with your screen name and put them all into one larger bag in case something unfortunate happens in the mail. However many you send is how many you will get back. Send 1, get 1 - send 2, get 2, etc. Please send no more then 6 goodie bags. If we get lots of people I may bump that up a bit.

For the handmade groups you will make something Halloween themed to be used on a scrapbook page - it could be a journal box, card, atc, title, tag, whatever creative thing you make that can be used on a page. Send in 4 items (keep your own). DO NOT send in for each person signed up - only send 4! You will get 4 items back randomly from other people in that group. Do work you would be proud of. Put your name and screen name on the back of your items so people can give proper credit for work. Put items for each group in a bag with your name and screen name.

Send items in a bubble envelope or box if possible. Include your screenname above the return address. I will reuse all envelopes unless they are damaged.

Send along a self addressed return label large enough to cover the address you wrote to mail it to me and enough postage to get it back to you. Please include 4 extra stamps in case what you get back weighs more then what you send in. (something which is a distinct possibility with these type of swaps) I will return unused postage.

My address is:
Lisa Conner
4088 Willow Lane
Columbia, PA 17512-9224


Since this is a grab bag swap there will be no flakers. However I would appreciate if you would tell me 1) your intent to send items, 2) when you send them & how many, 3) when you receive items back.

I think it would be a neat twist to do it by category this year. It would be a great way to get alot of one theme for a page and it would be all different types of elements!

I don't scrapbook halloween. I do make cards. I think if we were doing it by subject, some might make a pumpkin tag, or someone else would make a jrl blk.

So it would work for both ways for me. however, unless you mean each subject has to be an altered die cut or something other than a tag, jrnl blk, etc.. So I am good to go.

Is it possible to have a due date of early Oct. That would give me time to make cards and get them to the hospital in time for them to be used at Halloween

I would not be using any title over 6 inches, but can give a title that big or bigger to the childrens ward at the hospital.

I'm OK with early October. Will be a bit on the short side for due dates but hopefully people will be thinking up ideas now. The new paper lines & embellies should start coming out in the next week or so, not that they specifically need to be used but they always tend to inspire me.

OK ladies. Signups are open.

While I love the enthusiasm of people who sign up for every group, to begin with choose 5 or 6 at most please. That way if some groups don't fill I can hopefully combine a bit. As an alternative if you absolutely want to be in each group, pay attention to how many people are signed up and only send for that many.

I'm glad I found this.. I stocked up last year. I found some excellent goodies on clearance at Walmart. They never have Scrapbooking supplies when I go there, but couldn't complain that day A: 90% off, B: Halloween and C: Scrapbook supplies!!! What more could a girl ask for?

I'll sign up for the goody bags and the bats and spiders themes.

That's what happened to the spider group. I knew I put it in there but when I went back it wasn't listed so I added it at the bottom. Never realized I must have deleted it somehow when I was adding color to the category names.

I'll just renumber.
