This will be a grab bag swap. You will take a plastic egg (small, big, jellybean shaped, etc.) and fill it with either $2 or $5 of scrapbook supplies. The items do not need to be new in package but they should be quality items. For instance you can buy a bottle of prima flowers and divide them up. Of course NIP is fine too. The items can be ANY theme, it doesn't have to be Easter at all. Put each egg into its own ziplock baggie. This prevents the contents from spilling during shipping & will allow for larger items. Even though items can be put directly into the bag, you do need to include the egg with SOMETHING in it as getting the different eggs and opening them is half the fun. Put your screen name and which group it is for ($2 or $5) on each baggie.

The Easter bunny will swap them all out and send you back as many eggs from each group as you send in.

Some ideas for things to send although it certainly isn't everything; buckles, charms, photo anchors, SHAPED brads & eyelets (do not send plain ones), glittered brads, small jolees items, ribbon (not the cheap 4/$1 kind), SHAPED buttons, 3d alphas, tiny tags, small chipboard shapes, slide mounts, flowers, adhesive bling, small stamps, ink spots. You can include small handmade items as extras if you'd like.

Packaging and postage - Please package your eggs carefully. A small box is preferred but ladies have used well padded envelopes and they arrived OK. Please be sure you have a little extra room in your package in case the eggs you get back are larger then the ones you send, especially if you send the regular (small) size eggs rather then the larger ones. Please write your screenname above your return address. I will reuse the packaging assuming it gets to me in decent shape. Include a return label and send the same amount of postage that it took you to send your eggs plus 4 extra 17 cent stamps. Normally I say 2 extra but I found that the weights are often quite different in these kind of swaps due to the variety of things included in the eggs. I will return any postage not used. Please do not send metered postage.

I will need to have these IN MY HANDS absolutely no later then April 7. I will be mailing them back over the course of the following week (I can only put so many in the box each day) and we want everyone to receive them by Easter which is April 24 this year.

As this is a grab bag swap, there will be no flakers. Whatever comes in, gets swapped out. However I would appreciate it if you could tell me your intent to send in eggs, when you send them, how many for each group, and when you get them back.

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

Yay, am I to late to sign up? I am so glad I kept looking. I don't want to miss this one, it is one of my favorite. Ok I will sent in 2 for the $5.00 not sure how many for the $2.00 but I will let you know as soon as I no. I am thinking probably around 6 to 8 maybe even more.

I love their scrappy section so much. I still have to get some stuff though...maybe a trip to Michael's??? =)

While they were definitely my favorite eggs to find growing up, its probably not a good idea. Besides, that would add weight pretty fast.

So...I went back to Tuesday Morning last night and found out they're getting a new truck in this morning - that means it will all be out within 24 hours!!! Trouble ahead!!! =) I do think their inventory would vary a lot from store to store because they don't hold stock so if something sells there is no way of knowing if they'll ever get it again! (All the more reason to buy it all! I know I am sick!!!ROFLOL)

So guess where I went this weekend - Tuesday Morning. And DH is not nearly as thrilled as I was. I spent $30 on paper, which at their prices translates to LOTS. While I certainly don't need 25 sheets of the same pattern paper, at $1.99 how can I pass it up? Heck if I bought 2-4 sheets at normal prices (not that I would ever pay full price) I'll break even and with all the charity cards I make that shouldn't be any problem.

Isn't it amazingly wonderful!! My DH loved it too until I went back 5 times in the same week! Doh!!! But I love their paper and the funky embellishments they have too!! Glad you found something cool!

Last time I went to a Tuesday Morning store, I found absolutely NO scrapping stuff. But it has been a few years ago. That is the only store within 50 miles of me, (and it is 50 miles from me).
