3/24/14 The following were mailed out today and have an estimated delivery date of Wednesday 03/26/14

askyles 9114901159815357640966
TxDanise 9114901159815357640928
Blessed3Times 9114901159815357640904
slyn11 9114901159815357640881


EVERYONE has more than enough time to get these done BEFORE the DUE date! I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY EXCUSES OF WHY THEY ARE LATE. I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR THAT YOU ARE SICK, YOUR HUSBAND FORGOT TO MAIL, ETC. NO EXCUSES WILL FLY WITH ME. I WILL SEND THEM BACK TO YOU IF THEY ARE NOT RECEIVED BY THE DUE DATE. I CAN NOT STAND FOR ANYONE TO BE LATE BECAUSE OTHERS ARE DEPENDING ON YOU. AS A HOSTESS I WILL NOT MAKE THOSE THAT FOLLOWED THE RULES WAIT ON THOSE THAT CAN NOT. IF YOUR EMBELLISHMENTS ARE LATE AND SENT BACK YOU WILL BE PLACED ON THE FLAKER LIST. If you are a habitual procrastinator, I suggest you start working on them NOW.


This is a swap for sets of handmade embellishments. You will make 5 sets of 6 handmade embellishments for each group you sign up for (a total of 30 items per group). Each handmade embellishment must be different and yet coordinate.

Each embellishment must be at least 2-3 layers thick and must be embellished at least one time.

CHECKIN REQUIREMENTS:

You must check in at least once a week. You must keep in contact with me and with the board and let us know what you are working on. If I don't hear from you in two weeks (two no check- ins) I will peamail you to determine your status. If I do not receive communication, then I will put the spot back up for grabs and that person will be listed as a flaker. You WILL NOT BE LISTED AS A FLAKER if you keep in touch and let me know what is going on. Things happen, I understand that, but there are people are depending on you to make this a fun swap. If things start to happen and you feel that you will not be able to send your items in, you need to let me know at least 4 weeks before they are due. Anyone who drops out of the swap within two weeks of the due date without a very, very good reason, will be listed as flaker. Please don't let that be you!!!! This is going to be a very, very fun and high quality swap!

Postal Requirements:

Due in my hands March 18, 2014. Anything received after this date will be returned to sender, and I will have no choice but to list you as a flaker.

Please package them up and label them with the group name you signed up for, your peaname and your real name. Please send me a return address label and the amount of money that it cost you to send plus a little extra as it sometimes costs more on the journey back. Now, USPS puts tracking on all first class, flat rate and priority packages. It is on your receipt. Keep that receipt and post your tracking number to this forum. THIS IS A REQUIREMENT if you mail within a week of the due date--YOU MUST POST TRACKING. If you mail between now and two weeks before the swap is due, tracking is not required to be posted, but it would be helpful to post so we can verify that you did send your items.

Please note that some people send postage for me to send their items back first class, but they do not include an envelope. If I am not going to utilize the flat rate packaging free boxes at the post office, then you need to send me something to return your items. If at all possible, when I ship first class back, I try to use the same envelope you mailed in, unless it is just shot. Something to keep in mind: If you send me enough postage to mail back flat rate or priority, then I will take care of getting packaging from USPS.

If you forget to include postage, you can paypal it to me. That will be up to you to take care of and if I receive packages without postage, I will note it on the board. NO CHECKS!

NEW SWAPPERS:

Are welcome! If you have not swapped here before, welcome! This is a fun board. Don't be intimidated by the rules. Jump right in and make yourself at home! If you are a new swapper the rules are little different. YOU MUST mail your items at least 2 weeks before the due date. If you have been here on 2 peas less than 1 year, I need you to pmail me your real name and address so I can keep in contact with you. Most of the other swappers I have their other information already.



I will add additional groups as needed. Also, if there are other groups you are interested in, please feel free to suggest them. I am willing to add or take away any groups.

This one sounds fun too, could I please have a spot in the following:

Valentine's Day
Flowers-color pinks
Journaling Tags
Anything Goes-will update, when I think it over and get some ideas
Neutral-color cream

Also, could we add another group? Holiday? If so, I would like to sign up for Halloween.



Just to be clear on what we are sending in, a set for each person will contain 5 different items that coordinate? I think that is correct, but I just want to confirm before I get started.

Also, I signed up for the Card Swap you are hosting, is it okay to mail these together if both are packaged separately to save a bit on postage. If not and you want to keep them separate, not a problem.

Thank you for hosting!!

April - Just want to clarify something... Journal tags, are they hang tags with ribbon and stuff or are they journaling spots, don't need to be a tag? Or both?

For my neutral color I will do cream and for the anything goes category I am going to do children embellishments, child theme related.

Been working on this swap all afternoon.

Thanks for hosting this fun swap!!

Just checking...journaling spots can be whatever we choose, correct? Also, include me in the anything goes and I will be doing different holiday/season themes.

Ok, I haven't ever done one of these and I was trying to find examples in the gallery. Is this along the lines of what you are swapping here? Handmade embellishments

So a set of 6 per person in my group?....
I'll start by joining feminine, masculine, and anything goes.
Haven't got a clue as to what I will do, but I'm gonna challenge myself.

I'm subbing for now.
Do you have any samples of what you are thinking of? I'm thinking card candy, but maybe you are thinking something different.

Joyce, I can't open the link you posted. Here's one example:

Handmade Embellishments

These are more for scrapbook pages than cards. Some may use them for cards though

Are there any size requirements? I mean are these for pages or cards? Card candy is usually pretty small and when swapped it fits into a 4x6 packaging as if you had bought a pack of embellies from the store. Is this what you are looking for or do you want bigger for pages?

I would like to participate though:

Please add me to - Flowers (blue/teal) and Feminine

And I started a board on pinterest for handmade embellishments so if anyone wanted to check it for ideas...here's the link. Handmade Embellishments Board
