OK, have been promising this for a while, so if you've overspent you still HAVE to do it

Theme for swap will be: SUMMER!!! (Coz I'd like one, please )

To take part e-mail your details to, and leave a name underneath so I can check if i got your message. Pease put your MN name on the e-mail as this is my first swap to run. Ta. Also please tell me any hates / preferences and if you want to, specify scrapbooking, cardmaking, or general craft tart .

Gifts to go out by May 20th, thereby crossing a pay day for everyone I would have thought, and indeed the student grant season.

Parcels should contain:

something shiny
something natural (so paper, dried flowers, shells, silk ribbon etc etc etc)
something girly
something masculine (can be boy if a problem, so train ribbon or whatever)

then make up to £12 with a present of your choice

And finally, add a card you've made if possible.


please do join in or I'll think I am billy no mates......

i think i would like to do this.
can i also suggest everyone gets proof of postage?
question about the included bits? do you mean like a shiny embellishment? or a shiny paper cut?

Whizzz Fri 21-Apr-06 11:56:38

I assume the 'make up to £12' will include postage costs too ?

Peachyclair Fri 21-Apr-06 12:01:45

Shiny can be anything..... beads, die cuts, sequins, embellishments- let your mind wander.

Whizzz, I wasn't going to include postage as last time we had to buy a £10 gift... however, I can be persuaded if the opinions on this thread sre strong

Whizzz Fri 21-Apr-06 12:06:22

I just wondered whether the total cost of the stuff + P&P should be around £12 (I'd vote for that) or whether you pick £12 of lighter stuff so as not to incur high P&P costs !

or am I over complicating it !!!!
(no one mention nappy vouchers !)

Peachyclair Fri 21-Apr-06 12:14:48

Official ban on:

nappy vouvhers
Tesco computers for schools tickets
etc etc etc

(personally whizzz I tend to pick cheap to post stuff, but ama waiting further opinion)

i know i said i would do this but i'm going to have to back out - sorry my dream job has come up and i need to do the perfect application to be able to get it, so i don't think i can commit to this! sorry again!

JayzMummy Tue 25-Apr-06 00:51:53

Peachy....Ive mailed you.

JayzMummy Tue 25-Apr-06 00:52:44

yes please! i presume the present will be for a child?

kickassangel Tue 25-Apr-06 11:05:18

or am i being thick? sorry, haven't done this before - are we putting together a 'craft bundle' for another mner, or doing a present for a kid, with a card & some crafty bits to go with it so it can be wrapped, embellished?

JayzMummy Wed 26-Apr-06 11:54:29

kickass....I think its a craft bundle for a Mnetter...better check with Peachy first though.
