This swap is for ALL things pumpkin. This swap is open to anyone but guidelines should be respected and followed!

DO NOT sign up if you cannot handle the commitment. I have NEVER flaked on a swap and would appreciate the same respect in return. If you are not current on ALL your swaps or you have FLAKED and not made up for it, DO NOT sign up for this swap.

Important Guidelines!

What are we going to be Swapping?
The recipe cards are to be 6" x 6" in size (no deviation) and the base MUST BE cardstock! I also expect at least 1 patterned paper and must be embellished at least 2-3 times (jewels, diecuts, brads, ribbons, pockets, etc.) making it 3-dimensional rather than flat. NO computer printed images that are pixilated or fuzzy. You can use photographs if you like. No hand written recipes. Doodling does NOT count as an embellishment! Also make sure that you use enough adhesive and a GOOD adhesive to ensure that the cards will hold up, yet not so much that they stick together.

I will start the count at 12 but will go up to 16 if needed. I will also open more groups if needed.

Colors
Any fall/pumpkin colors are acceptable - be wonderful, be creative! The only EXCEPTION: NEON colors are NEVER acceptable, unless specifically noted.

Recipes
Please use a font that is readable. Also, NO HANDWRITING, recipes must be printed onto cardstock (not copy paper).

Please, no repeats of recipes either, let's get a variety. I will consider recipes of a similar nature. Please post your recipe when you sign up, or shortly thereafter. First to post their recipe gets that spot!

You must add your pea name and real name to the back of the recipe card.

2peas Posting
I expect participants to check in weekly on the thread, and I will do so also! Please communicate with me if you have questions or problems. If I have not seen you checking in as requested, I will PM you. If I do not receive a response within 3 days, I will assume you do NOT want to be a part of the swap any longer and will angel out your spot. I have NEVER flaked and appreciate the same in return... I can't stress this enough!!!

Due Date: NO LATER than the November 20th!
Please be respectful of this, as I will be and others are counting on you! I will remain firm on this and ship back quickly, so please keep that in mind. These will be used as Christmas gifts and I want to have them back in YOUR hands in plenty of time.

Angel Policy
I will be posting to the thread weekly, and if I notice that a swapper has not posted and I cannot reach them, I will find an angel to replace their spot.

Packaging, Identification, and Shipping
Ready to ship to me? Please package your recipes however you see fit to mail to me. Please place items in a ziploc bag as a minimum. You MUST label the bag with your peaname & real name for identification. Please include a piece of paper with your name/peaname and return address.

My address is:
Becky Miltenberger
81767 Bird Haven Lane
Umatilla, OR 97882


Return Postage ** NEW & UPDATED **
I am requiring $5 CASH (US dollars) for return shipping. Absolutely NO pre-paid labels as the PO will not accept these! IF YOU DO NOT SEND ME AN ENVELOPE TO RETURN YOUR RECIPES IN, I WILL BE USING THE FLAT RATE ENVELOPES. If you want DC, then you need to notify me that you want to pay the add'l fee for that (unless the flat rate envelope is used and then DC is free). Remember that postage went up this year!! $5 still covers the flat-rate envelopes and includes the DC.

I would feel better if you would get Delivery Confirmation when you mail these to me but it is NOT required. I have never had any shipping issues, but if you know that your PO has had problems, please do what you need to ensure it gets here ok.

Such a great idea, I would like to join - I love pumpkins! My recipe is for Pumpkin Spice Pudding with Oatmeal or Gingerbread Cookies. I would love to see an example recipe card.

Thanks!

laurencollis, I rec'd your PMs but when I tried to reply, it says you have me blocked or you have reached your quota...hmmmm....

Anyhoo, here is one example of a recipe card I did quite awhile back. recipe example. You can go to my gallery and look thru to see other examples. This is just the first one I found. Hope this helps!! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask! Also, yes, the base may be patterned paper that is thick (such as BoBunny and other good paperlines where their patterned paper is thicker than just paper). Hope that makes sense...lol

bumping for more interest. 5 spots open but am willing to add a few more if needed. I found some more awesome pumpkin recipes today and was having a hard time deciding. I actually changed my soup recipe to a different one just based on ingredients...lol But there is an amazing double layer pumpkin bread that I really will have to try...diet or not! LOL

Have a great weekend everyone!! The sun is shining...it's Saturday and I have the weekend off... can't think of anything better!

I included $10.00 for both packs to be mailed back together plus DC.
(this one and the December cookie one) Let me know if that's not enough. Mailing is so cray-cray these days.

Mine should be there Monday. Have DC if needed. Put enough postage in there for you to ship back in my original box. Also included DC.
