Come join in the fun! This is a May and Mother's Day themed kit swap. The following items are needed in this kit (minimum):

2 - 8x8 themed papers of the group you're in
2 - 8x8 matching cardstock
3 - handmade goodies to match the papers
2 - 12" ribbons to coordinate with the papers OR 1 - 24" ribbon
1 - Handmade bling item
The above list are the minimum requirements. You can add more and are encouraged to put your personal touch to your kit. Make it something you would love to receive.

This month's categories are:
Mother's Day - this one is obvious

Emerald color scheme - Emerald is the birthstone of May

Memorial flowers - For this kit your hand made items will be flowers with the additional of a bling item of your choice.

RULES:
1)You must check in at least once a week.
2)Your kit must be FINISHED by 5/18/12.
3)you must post a picture of your kit. Then I'll post on the front page.
4) PM me with your name and address no later than 5/15/12. (If you swapped the past two months, then I should still have it.)
5) I will pm you on 5/19/12 with your pal's name and address. If you haven't completed your kit, by the deadline, you won't be able to swap out. It's not fair for some to be on time while others wait until the last minute and don't get it done in time or forget about it and someone is left out. If everyone has their kits finished or in the process of finishing them, we can swap earlier!
6) Most important, HAVE FUN!!!


Sign ups will be taken until 5/15/2012.

I'm going to have to bow out of this one...too much going on in May/early June with Em's graduation.

I'll see you all in the June swap, though!

Ok, I'm going to change the other categories.. I thought I might attract some people with young boys on the space/martiens.

If anyone has any ideas that you would like to see/exchange let me know.

If you think you might still do space, I might be up for that (but not in a little-boy way) - the Air and Space Museum and Udvar-Hazy Center are two of our stops on next week's trip to Washington DC.

LOL.. sure, as soon as I change it, then you guys want it.. Ok, I'm leaving all the categories up.

I tried to find the one web site I found the historical dates, when I found that May is also National Strawberry month. But I think around it's celebrated in June, but I could be wrong. That would be a cute kit to put together.

Okay I want one in May flowers and one in Mothers Day.

I might see if mom wants to join for this too and she might do one of each group too. I will have her sign in here. She doesn't get on to often, but she lives with me, so I know she will do them. I got her into scrapbooking..lol.

Im interested but am wondering about the handmade goodies and the hand made bling do you all have an example of what you have gotten in the past? I have a ton of Handmade swap stuff I will never use because it was not quality. BTW I love the strawberry idea!!!

Hello Melissa, We welcome all levels of crafters/artists here. I'm not sure of what you mean by the quality. There is a minimum that is required in each kit. Some people just give that, some give much more. Some people have more experience and perhaps the quality of their work might show, but that's how we all learn. This month, one of the kits you have to make three hand made flowers. I have seen some beautiful flowers made by most of the people signed up. A lot depends on the theme of the kit. Before swapping out pals, everyone has to post a picture of their finished kit.

Here's the link to March's swap, there was some nice kits: March kit swap
And February: February kit swap
