2010 SWAPS.

Post by Lorraine on Thu 14 Jan 2010 - 11:47

With a new found determination to keep this forum rocking, :heart: I've decided that we will have at least one swap a month going. If any of you want to host another though, feel free. Mr Green Details of each will be posted each month, but this is your basic list. If you don't like this idea, or come up with better subjects, just tell me and I'll scrap it or change it. Mr Green

Each swap will start at the beginning of the month and you'll have until the end of the third week of the month to finish it. The last week of each month will be for sign up for the next month. Mr Green (except January as that's already sorted).

January..................Mini Pocket Book
February................Textured Alphabet
March....................Themed ATC's
April.......................Inchies
May.......................Tags
June.......................Ribbons
July........................Pocket Page Book
August....................Stash
September...............Card Kit
October...................Twinchies
November................Triangular Page Book
December................Jigsaw - Cancelled
.............................Secret Santa

sounds fab, you can count on me joining in and I will enjoy all these.

The best thing of all is you feeling like it again.

What a good idea!

I agree with Maria about the 'best thing' as well.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

Oh my, oh dear, oh gulp. What can I afford to miss out of this lot.
Decembers look terrific, will the instructions be up in August then I might have time to do it? No way I'll be able to in Dec, unless I have a personality change and get things ready early, nonono.

Lorraine this is simply fantastic ... I love the idea of having a swap each month (with possibly some odd ones thrown in by others in between). What inspiration, eh? I shall do my utmost to do every single one, except possibly May when I shall be in Shanghai for a long spell ... still, who knows, I may get it done even so! I will be sure to give it a darned good go. Thank you so much.

This looks wonderful - thank heavens it's become obvious that we need to get my craftroom fitted out as the next job in the house! So I might actually be able to get to my stuff and take part in some of these. Meanwhile, I guess I could always host a swap that I didn't actually take part in.....

looks fab. Will there be seperate threads for each then, to sign up etc. I'm likely to forget otherwise, what with my head being all thick and daft.

Hopefully there will be some guidelines each month - e.g. what, how many,
themes etc. I'll go with the flow.

I think, for me, one of my new year's resolutions is going to be to read Lorraine's posts thoroughly!! Several times I have been like you, Steph, and missed a bit then raised the question. She'll have you and I struck off as old crumblies if we're not careful!!!!!

You speak for yourself, Steph and Patty. Peeing Laughing

And don't worry, you're not the only ones that skim my posts, lol. I think my writing style must be VERY boring. Sobbing

I don't normally skim read - I either just missed that line out or misread it.
You are not boring AT ALL. Silly sausage.

Have posted February's up. Mr Green

Now, a thought. I'm sure you're all aware that I like to host my swaps right through. Mr Green But, I'm also aware that this means double postage for you all. So, if any of you object to this, please, please tell me.

I promise I'll try and force myself to do some direct swaps sometimes too, lol.

I hadn't given it a thought either. Just the idea of a monthly swap
was fabulous. Folks know what is entailed, so if they don't have
to take part.
