HUGE EMBELLIE SWAP

**FLAKER FREE SWAP!**

Sign Ups Close: August 15, 2010

Due Date (received in my hands by): October 15, 2010


I LOVE swaps, so I thought I'd open an embellishment swap. This will be very simple. You send in x number of things/baggies per category and get back the same amount of things/baggies in the same category. Because I have heard horror stories, I've decided to make this swap have a few more stipulations.

PLEASE read rules carefully. If your items do not meet the requirements, I reserve the right not to swap them. Please do not cause drama or complain later, because I am telling you ahead of time.

Rules:
1. You can send in as many items as you want up to 10 spots per category. You will get back the same number that you send in for each category. Label each baggie/item with your screenname! This is very important and is the only way to guarantee that you will not get your own item back by accident. Also include on each baggie the category name and the number of the baggie out of the number of total baggies sent in. For example, if I sent in 7 bags of buttons, I would label the 3rd bag: iheartaslan buttons 3/7. If you send in 10 bags of bling the 7th baggie would be labeled: yourscreenname bling 7/10.

2. Please send your items well-packaged and in a bubble envie or box. Include a self-addressed label and return postage as well as 4 extra forever stamps to allow for a heavier return package. When ready to mail, send to:

Megan A. Walker
311 S LASALLE ST APT 3H
DURHAM, NC 27705-3606

3. Items do NOT have to be NIP UNLESS stated, but can be. Here are a couple of guidelines that will be adhered to:
A. Each spot will have a minimum number of items to be included or a minimum value. If you do not send in enough items per spot, I will not swap them.
B. Items must be sold in a scrapbook store or scrapbooking section. I do not want things like beads, silk flowers from the garden section, yarn, etc.
C. NO paper
D. No themed items.
E. Make sure loose items are packaged in sealed baggies. If they arrive to me loose and not sealed in their baggies, I will NOT repackage them.
F. No handmade items for this swap, storebought only.



Categories and minimums:
If you are sending in different sizes, use your judgment and please BE GENEROUS! I will be sending like valued items back to you!

If it is possible to request no pink or purple, I would like to play. I have no need for those colors.

I am a little concerned that I would spend the money to mail in a bunch of baggies not knowing if anyone is going to be sending in something in the category for you to swap out. Say I send in 3 bags of brads. what would you do to swap out so I don't pay postage and get my own bags back because no body sent in bags of brads. How does that work.

I am doing 10 bags per category, so you will definitely get back different ones. Plus the more people we have, the more variety to swap out.

Hey Patty,

You can request no pink or purple--I just ask that you please put a note in your box/envie when you mail it to me to remind me that you do not want pink or purple.
