Sheesh, Anna! I am sorry to mess up all of your organization! I just noticed the due date- we're taking our kids to Disney and will be gone the week and a half up to that date. I don't know that I can be that organized that quickly!! I need to drop my spots... Hopefully there are lots ofnladies to jump in!!

Gus Gus

So for the ribbon... Can it be patterned... Perhaps pink and white for the pink group or does it have to be a solid color?

And for the handmade I read die cuts... Can it be 2-3 die cut tags?

Mamaofdudes-I'll add you to the three spots you asked for. Thanks!

Kate-no problem. Thanks for letting me know so early! Enjoy your trip!

Moniq407-pattern/print ribbon is fine. Please make sure your chosen color is used the most in the print/pattern. Like pink ribbon with white dots would be okay for a pink spot. As far as die cuts, I would ask that the quantity that you send in be dependant on the SIZE that you make. For example if you die cut out 3" tags, I would send in 4 per person. If you cut out a 4" flower, then 3 would be fine. I would rather err on the side of generous.

I've updated my OP and made a change to the trending colors spot:

Here is what is still open:

TRENDING COLORS: Emerald Green & Metallic Copper or Bronze

WHITE group 2-BRADS
BLACK group 2-BRADS
BROWN group 2 BRADS & FLOSS/TWINE
RED group 2 BRADS
BLUE group 2 BRADS
YELLOW group 2 FLOSS/TWINE
ORANGE group 2 BRADS
PURPLE group 2 BRADS & BLING/RHINESTONES & FLOSS/TWINE
PINK group 2 BRADS

I just want to make sure you understand what you will be sending in, for example...

For my pink bling/rhinestone group 2 spot- I will make 8 packages that contain 16 rhinestones in it. Each person in the group will get one package of rhinestones from me.

That holds true for the brads, buttons and flower spots, too. These are the main categories that have the most items you need to send in per person.

IF this is more than you thought you signed up for, please let me know. Sorry for confusing anyone!

Hi Gus Gus
As far as I can tell, you do have me in the categories that I asked for. I'm really looking forward to this swap. I wanted to double check with you, I've done several of Shilo's swaps and also the 12 days of Christmas one, but never one of yours. Do you want me to have mine to you a week early?

Go ahead and take me out of trending metallic...I don't mind taking two, but there may be others who want to jump in. If you see you need someone to help closer to the deadline, just holler.

I think I was put on the yellow brad group instead of rhinestones as i had originally asked. If already taken (I think Meleah wants yellow bling), please go ahead and give it to her, but if you would not mind taking me off brads. I definitely don't have enough of those! Thanks!!! Started on my flowers today! Fun!

Gus Gus if u can find someone to take my spot in the green color for ribbon that would be great.

I accidentally got placed in that spot. And I have a lot more colored ribbon to purchase than I thought.
Thanks

Mariposas-can you wait a week or two before we meet up? I won't have a car next week and the following week is our spring break.

Moniq-sorry about that. I didn't have you in that spot on my paper list but somehow put you in it on my OP. Shari said she would take that spot.

Wren176-thanks for taking the purple twine spot.

3 spots remaining-

Yellow group 2 BRADS
Purple group 2 BLING/RHINESTONES
Trending colors-EMERALD would be willing to change this up for someone

I'm just wondering if all the handmade items in my color categories have to be the same or can I do a combination? For example: all pink butterflies, or some pink butterflies, a few pink flowers, a pink pinwheel. Thanks, Mary.

Jeanette-thanks for taking the last trending color spot!

Counselor58-I'm letting Jeanette have the last spot so you won't be getting two of the same colors back.

Chippieinthehouse-a mix of embellies is fine. If you could do them in multiples of 2 or 3, I would appreciate it. I know if I'm doing a layout, I will tend to use 2 or 3 of the same embellie. 2 butterflies, 2 flowers and 2 arrows (just for an example) would be plenty.

Any ideas for packaging? Should I just put them all together in a bag???

Ideas on how anyone else was planning to send their handmade items...?

Meleah, I appreciate you trying to help out, I really do! Thank you for taking so many spots!

Moniq-I need you to put one set of 16 flowers in their OWN bag. For each group you signed up for, you'll end up with 8 bags for each spot. I also ask that you put a piece of paper with your name, pea name and group 1 or group 2 inside of the bag. When I go to swap each color group out, I put all yellow 1 on the floor and make 8 seperate piles-one pile goes to each person. Having them in individual bags makes my sorting so much easier. This swap will take me close to 3 hours to sort out and package everything.

Okay thanks Gus Gus. I'll put all of them in one bag.

For the ribbon since its 3 different ribbons for one color. I thought of using jute rope to tie around the 3 ribbons so that all u have to do is sort the 8 groups instead of separating 24 ribbons...

Got my orange bling and blue bling. Ordered my red twine. Black bling showed up and is more navy blue, so have to get something different! Have an order in my cart somewhere for black bling and green brads, then I'm set!

Ready to send in my flowers for the three groups! Since they are fairly light, how much postage do you think we should send for you to return the items? I'll probably just add cash in an envelope. Do you want us to send you a tracking # as well?
