3/1 -
Forgot to add there is not really a $ amount however we all know that your favorite magazine to read is not going to be the auto trader -unless your Joe Dirt and no ones favorite treat is going to be a handful of the free mints from your local Chinese take out place.

What I am getting at here is to please make sure that you are being sincere and sending your partner things that are a good quality and nice thoughtful gifts!!

Just a few of my favorite things whimsy swap...

Due in the Mail April 5th!

Start with:
A new reusable shopping bag from your favorite store.

Include in your bag at least one item to represent your favorite for each of the following:

-Holiday
-Scrapbook Company
-Color
-Pin from Pintrest
-Magazine
-Thing about Springtime
-Non scrapping hobby
-Treat

All of the items need to be new, bought for this swap.

Signing up
In order to sign up I need you to peamail your address and email address in addition to responding to the thread.

If you are on the flaker list, are not current in your swaps right now or have ever flaked one of my swaps - don't bother signing up.

Because of the cost involved in this swap I am limiting this to current swappers only. If you are a newbie (last 3 months) please let me know what swaps you are currently in so I can reference those as needed.

Signups will go until this Friday @ noon MST at which point I will close the swap and assign partners.

I'd like to participate, but I have a dumb question. Do the items have to be our favorite things or our partners favorite things?

I would love to do this. I just participated in a February card swap with ChattyCrafters - you can email Kimberly Hanna at chattycrafters@yahoo.com ask reference because I am a newbie.

I will send peamail with information just in case you let me in

Partners are assigned!!

I did a random draw like I usually do and pulled out my name with my moms. At first I was going to throw them back in, but the swap Gods have spoken and in all the swaps we have done we have never been partners, so here is the chance. Hope you don't mind Rosy

So I'm having trouble with the favorite pin from pinterest one. What exactly does that mean? Half of my pins are things to make not really things to buy I guess.

For the pintrest one there are a few ways I was thinking this could be done.

Here our my boards I could either make something like this, this, or this .
Or I could make recipes card with some of these on it.
I could print one of these and frame it for my partner.
Or I could buy one of
these.
One other way would be to check out your partners pin board, here's my partners and pick your "favorite" pin of hers.

Hope that helps

shari & Toni - So sorry I missed you both as well. I typed up the list in word as I was drawing names and must have dropped off the last two lines. Needless to say you to are partners and I am sorry for the confusion. Guess I was more rusty in the hosting then I thought.

HI SHARI!! We are partners... We can communicate either by PM or email either is good for me!! I do love Pinterest, and if I could "re-pin" almost all my friends ones my boards would super full. I travel away from home a lot, and I see you are in Cali !!! Our oldest lived there for 12 years. I can't wait to get know you better and you know me.... Happy Monday!
Toni

Whoo hoo... This is gonna be a fun swap, what a great idea.
