Are there going to be any new swaps? I've just started joining them and have had such fun. I was just curious to see if there would be anymore set up soon?

I'm planning to open a 6x6 chipboard album soon but just waiting to see some new paper lines come out. Summer is usually more quiet here since lots of people have little ones out of school that keep them extra busy


My husband said it was him or scrapbooking... so I took pictures of him packing and made the cutest page ever!

I got a pile of scrapbook supplies for my husband. It was the best trade I ever made!

Yep. I'm in that group. I have 4 little ones. I just found this part of the peas and I am totally in love with it. It is such a great idea and I'm excited for more. Although, new swaps seem to fill up pretty fast. I just thought I'd try to be on the look out so I don't miss ones I'd like to join.

I have several spots still open in the Twinchie swap. I ended up having to take up to 4-5 spots in order to fill the group. You are welcome to any of them if you are interested.

The ones I have spots in that I have not done yet are:

A Father Is...
Rainboots and Umbrellas
Owls
Shoes
Baseball
Little Girl Vintage
Girly Girl (bright modern colors)

If you want to take any of those spots, I would not mind. I have made MANY already...lol and I may have to make some in the event anyone flakes. So, if you see something that interests you, let me know. They are due in two weeks though, that is the only downside.

Let me know!!

Oh no!!! I just saw this and that's one I was going to ask for. I'm just not on here enough. My twins just turned two and we are potty training so not a ton of time to spend w/the peas

Ising2dlord, I've been debating on this one and I really do want to do it. So sign me up and if the shoe one is still open I'll take it too.

I'm a newbie here so I was a bit surprised to see a lot of swaps closed. It's funny because I'm a teacher so summer is the best time for me to craft.

Hey, Mariposas, I have a spot in my Owl Tag swap due 7-15. Would be interested? I would not mind giving up that spot. If you are not interested, no pressure and no worries. I just saw your cute owl as your picture and thought you might like that. Just let me know!!!

I Love to knit/crochet. I made those owl hats this winter for my twins. I can't commit to making anything else right now. I'm in TX visiting family and away from my supplies. Otherwise, I would be in. THanks so much for the offer

I personally would love to participate in another Twinchie swap - one I was in is just wrapping up, and I'm eager to do another! Our current host has started school and can't host one right now - is there any interest and could someone guide me as to how to go about hosting a swap??

Twinchies are a "themed" 2 inch square.....for instance the one I just did had multiple categories with guidelines...you make nine of them-all the same, and then send them to your hostess-she then sends each participant a full set for each spot she takes - you get nine different but similar themed squares that you can mount or use as card embellishments or even on a scrapbook page...they are fun and slightly addictive!! I participated in 6 different categories, including the following ; SHOES, BEACH BUMS, CAMPING, BIRDS-BLOOMS & BEES, FARM & RAINBOOTS & UMBRELLAS.

Anyone have thoughts or suggestions on this??

crycket I would be interested in doing another twinchie swap. I am addicted! I saw the cutest ones and put them in my gallery here A little "neighborhood" So everyone could make a version or there house or something.

Also saw this idea for an alphabet set. Other ideas:

bathroom (splash, rubber ducky, bubble bath)
Halloween
generic fall
thanksgiving
winter
Christmas - these would be so cute on cards!

I'd also be interested in a music theme, peacock and a butterfly theme.

Or maybe a bunch of categories of disney movies. Like a cars theme(mater,lightning,sally, ect.), monsters inc. theme, wall-e, alice in wonderland, toy story, ect. and everyone picks a dif. character from the movie in that category to do on their square. Or whatever movies/shows you choose.

I'm game as these are addicting! And I *LOVE* the little houses...those are simply too cute!

After summer crowds are gone, I will be visiting Disneyland quite a bit. Disney would be great. And I to be so game for a Halloween themed one, I like to frame the holiday ones in my entryway.

LOVE the neighborhood idea. I have all these cute neighborhood-esque stamps that I have been wanting to use!
Also love the butterfly, disney, and bath ones. Sorry I can't host again. I enjoyed it. But I start homeschooling my 3rd grader in 3 weeks, plus I am in school full time (almost a SR! YAY!).
I would love to take spots though!!! If you host another one, Shilo and I are gonna have to sign up for "Twinchies Anonymous" due to our addiction...

I was thinking of hosting a Embellished Journal Spot Swap. What do you think? What themes are swappers looking for right now. I always get stumped when trying to think of themes.

Aimee:
Did you need more than one theme? Fall seems to be really popular right now, Halloween, Christmas, and Butterflies are always a quick sign up. I personally love peacock(colors, feathers). TH stuff appeals to me quite a bit.
