And the rules once again;
Gift Swap Rules

If you would like to participate, please read the rules, then send Jiffymouse a pm with Craft Swap for the subject line, and your address (if I don’t already have it) along with your email address. Phone numbers are nice, but not required. Also the words "i agree to follow the rules" in the body. here are the rules:

1 - all members must be signed up by August 17.
2 – post your answers to the questionnaire in HERE.
3 - names will go out by pm on or before Aug 19th
4 - all gifts must be mailed out by September 1, failure to do so will make you ineligible to participate in future gift swaps and could result in other penalties
5 - in the event of disaster striking you before you can mail out your box, notifying Jiffy as soon as possible will preserve your ability to play in the future. don't laugh, it could happen. we had 2 in another swap. please include the reason, even if it is just "i got snowed under and couldn't do it"
6 - gifts should be mailed with a tracking number when possible (even the post office offers that for only about 50 cents more) BUT...
7 - if you order your gift to be "direct shipped" please pm me when the order is placed, with the company name so i can post "so-and-so's gift has been ordered direct ship".
8 - finally - just like last time, that there is no specific amount, but please be mindful of other's budgets, and please make sure that you would be happy if you got what you sent out. if in doubt, $20-$30 VALUE is always a safe bet. and value is much more important than cost.
9 - post that you received your gift as soon as you get it, but at least within 3 days. pictures are great if you can!
10 - the administration of this board reserves the right to amend the rules as necessary.

I have a 35 year old husband that acts like a 5 year old. lol No kids, I have an almost 6 year old niece Athena, and she spends a lot of time with me. She loves crafts, that's what I'm buying her a lot of this year...crafty stuff.

I have grown children. Three step grand children ( although we don't play steps in my home), and one brand new bio grandson, my new baby and grand daughter live 3000 miles from me though tears. I see two of my grandsons often. They love coming to see Gramma Shirl,and grampa.


My swap gal's box is in the mail!!! I sure hope she likes the stuff nervous. Should be there in about three days, and it was sent with delivery confirmation.

yep Christy !! I have been doing my craft for 20+ years--and last week I felt like the new kid on the block. Once I had chosen my "gift" project--I was full of doubt & questions. But I am determined to keep on plugging away until I get it finished!!! All the way home on tuesday I kept thinking I could do "this" or i could do "that" to my project. I am sure we will all get there, just fine---but like you say--what a ride along the way!!!!!

It's not like I'm the first one to mail off. NL, aka Shirl, mailed off earlier than I. lol Maybe it is coming to Ohio, or maybe not. I'll never teelllll.

Jiffy knows. Ask her. She was so helpful, answered all my questions about so-and-so. kissie Thanks Jiffy!


To Whomever Recieves a Gift from me: Please look in the plastic bag and let me know if my credit card receipt is in there. lol
