Hello lovely crafty people!
The basic idea for this swap came from Sassie via 2peas...thanks Sassie!!

For this swap, you will make a set of 4 of the item you sign up for and you will get a set of 4 back. It's that easy!

4/7/12 ***UPDATE.....UPDATE.......UPDATE*** You can sign up for multiple spots in any group! Sign up for two spots...send in 2 SETS and get 2 SETS back, sign up for 3 spots and send in 3 SETS and get 3 SETS back and so on.

DUE DATE:
Now I know how busy we all are and since the majority of the categories will be handmade items, I am going to set the DUE DATE for May 5th (not post marked, actually in my hands) so I can have them swapped out and back to everyone just in time for Mother's Day! That's over a month to create. I am a real stickler for deadlines and due dates, so please be on time or your items will be returned to you. Overseas crafters are welcomed but your creating time will be less since your packages will take longer to get here. PM me for address if you don't already have it.

RETURN POSTAGE:
You have the option of sending return postage with your package or sending it via PayPal. The PayPal address is pebblesh (underscore) 33@yahoo.com If you send postage with your package please make sure you include the amount that it cost to get it here plus 3 extra stamps. If I don't need the extra stamps, I will send them back to you.

FLAKER CLAUSE:
This is usually where I say "if you don't plan on finishing, don't sign up", but I will sign up for each category so no matter what, if someone flakes, you will still get to swap out with me! And I'm no flaker! LOL

THE SPECS:
1. For the stick pins, you can use either use HEAD PINS, OR you can use CORSAGE PINS. PLEASE don't use any pins smaller than 2". Please use at least 3 beads per pin and make sure the beads are adhered to the pin by either using E6000, crystal laquer or Glossy Accents so they won't slide down and the glue dries clear.

2. For the binder clips, you can use between the 1" to the jumbo size.

3. The Washi Tape can be bought or handmade. Take strips of 4, eight inches long and adhere them to wax paper, clear acetate, non-stick foil...etc.

4. For the clothes pins, I was thinking along the line of the regular sized spring loaded ones (not the minis), but I have seen the jumbo spring loaded and the old fashioned slit ones. The choice is yours.

5. The toothpick flags are easy peasy. Your flags can be however you want. Rectangle, triangle...etc. Have fun with it.

6. For the altered paper clips. I recommend that you use the colored coated ones. They have many to choose from. Regular standard shape, spirals, etc. Either the small ones or the large ones. That's not to say that you can't use the silver or gold ones so the choice is yours.

7. The pearl flowers is totally up to you whether you want to use 5 or 6 base pearls. And since I limited on my video skills right now (lol), I've linked the video tutorial that I watched that inspired me to make it.

8. Let's have the Charm Dangles no longer than 4 inches and no shorter than 2 inches. Be as creative as you want!

Each set of 4 will be swapped TOGETHER. I ask that you don't make each set exactly the same. I think it will be fun to get a good variety to use on future projects. If you want to use the same color for your sets, that is fine as long as they are each a little bit different. I will have tutorials posted for inspiration (so far I only have done)and please let me know if there's another category that you think we should add.

Sign ups will be open until April 7th!
***UPDATE*** Sign ups will be open until April 10th!

Let me think about this one.. I'm supposed to take it easy this month as I'm out of funds.. I would love to sign up for stick pins as I have all the supplies... I just applied at the temp agency, so if I get anything between now and the 7th, I'll sign up!

Let me think about this one. I do love making stick pins. But my crafting bug has left, and so far...is not returning.

Sorry ladies...I had to run out and do some errands right fast.

Sally- No problem. Just let me know. You have supported me since I first started getting my feet wet with hosting, so I will take care of your shipping if you want to sign up for stick pins.

Bonnie- Altered Paper Clips are a go!

Sassie- Signing you up now!

Jessica- I'm going to go back out and find your bug and send'em home to you!

Debby- I will be doing tutorials for every category and will have them all done before sign ups are over. I will let you ladies know when I post a new video and for which category. The next one that I do will be one of the ones you asked about though.
