I know it seems early but Easter is just over 10 weeks away and of course we want to get these back before then.

The first part of this swap will be a grab bag type swap. You will take a plastic egg (small, big, jellybean shaped, etc.) and fill it with $3 worth 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. Be sure to label the bags with your screen name so you don't get one of your own back.

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

The second part of the swap will be for Easter or spring themed handmade items. 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.

I will need to have these IN MY HANDS absolutely no later then March 19. That will give me a few days to get them swapped out and mailed back so everyone has them by Easter which is March 31 this year.

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 several extra stamps in case what you get back weighs more then what you sent. I will return any postage not used. Please do not send metered postage.

You can send in up to 6 eggs. However many you send is how many you will get back, but please no more then 6.

For each of the handmade groups please send exactly 4 and you will get 4 back.

I also had plastic eggs from Easters passed...since I assemble ALL of the Easter baskets for the kids in the family! I am going to wait until my Cricut comes in next week so I can work on my handmade journal spots next weekend. Happy Friday, ladies!

Ok. I HAVE to share this with you ladies because my REGULAR friends who don't share my love of crafting don't understand. I came home today to find a package waiting for me...my new Cricut Expression came in today! For those of you who don't know, my Cricut went out on me a week after I completed a LOTW swap. I have been without one for about three weeks, but now I am back in business! I will be starting on my journaling spots this weekend!

I have some small ones that I stuffed, and I'm not happy with them. I don't even like what I put in the eggs. Everything seemed great at first, but now that I've pondered it for a day or two, I'm not happy. I gotta go big or go home....

Got my goodies for the Egg! Found a nice clearance sale at Beverley's. I love that place! Now to find an egg, and something to ship it in Should be easier, after V day is over.
