A Twinchie is a two inch decorated square. It is a small little piece of art. What we do is create 9 identical twinchies with a specific theme for each spot you sign up for.

DUE DATE
These will be due to me NO LATER THAN January 15th - I am being very strict on this deadline so I can get them back out to you in the mail before Valentines Day.

CREATING
* Size 2x2 (2 inch by 2 inch). Please be sure to measure twice before cutting if you are using a personal cutter or trimmer. There are 2 inch square punches out there. We will make them in groups of 9. Please mail them ALL to me, even your own. You are welcome to sign up for more than one spot.

* Use only high quality cardstock as the base and at least one other kind of paper. Must include two embellishments or more. Do your best work! Decorate only the front.

SHIPPING
* Please put all of the twinchies in one ziploc bag or large envelope and label them with your pname, your real name, category and group # (if there is one). This is important!

* Please send enough postage for me to mail back and an envelope with your mailing info. If you wish me to send them back to you in a flat rate mailer with DC, then send $6 with them. These are relatively small. They should fit in a 6x9 mailer.

* I am asking that everyone please add dc when you send these. That will help me track them when they are in route. In turn I will be adding dc to all packages when I send them back to you.

***If you are signing up for multiple spots, please add the same amount of return postage as what it is costing you to send as you will be receiving that same amount back!! I would prefer not to accept paypal if at all possible.***

Renee - So your dc will be in minutes instead of days, lol.

Rosy - When you say Vintage Springs, do you mean Vintage Easter? Just wanted to make sure.

So glad both of you signed up, and as soon as I figure out how to edit I'll get it noted, lol!

I'm worried about how slow this swap is filling up? I know a few people were going to take a break from swaps, but hopefully more will come around and sign up for this one.

Maybe it's filling a little slower because of the holiday too? I'm sure all of the spots will be taken soon.

I think it is just slow because of the holidays. I think it will fill just let it stay open for awhile.

When I did last year's spring/valentine/Easter twinchies swap, it was slow to fill too. In fact, I had a couple spots open all the way until 3 weeks before they were due. So, don't worry, I am sure after the holiday buzz dies down, many will get Spring fever and take spots.

Another thing you could try is doing 2 separate due dates. It's kind of hard to think about an Easter swap due on Jan 15th. Maybe the winter and valentines can be due then and the others due in March?

Tonya - Welcome to swapping! I'm so glad you jumped in and signed up. If you get stuck on anything, feel free to ask me or anybody here, we'd be happy to help.

Andrea - Thanks for the advice, I like the idea of two due dates, but will it turn into more of a headache. I'll think about it over the weekend.

Renee - You're so goofy! Definitely not a pain, lol!

Okay, count me in, in all categories. For Easter I will do a cross if it isn't already taken. For Spring Showers, I will do rain boots. For bugs, I will do inch worm, and birds I would like humming bird. Looking forward to this!!!

On these Twinchies, I have never done them before, can the embellishments you put on them, can they hang off a little?

I am from Bauxite, which is about 30 miles south of Little Rock. This is my first swap and I am really looking forward to it. I believe I met some of the ladies from the Greer's Ferry last weekend when I came to a junk journal workshop with my cousin Meleah. Looking forward to coming back up that way again.

Hey I'm back! Looks like everybody has been busy the past couple days! Everything is up to date as of now. I do have one group that does not look like there is enough interest. If I don't have at least two more sign up for the Religious Easter group by the end of day Friday, then I will close it out. Now I need to get buy on these so I can have mine done in time, lol.
