Hello all you June Babies and those of you just looking for some fun!!! Let's celebrate beautiful summer with a lovely parcel swap!!

This swap is for a nice little package of goodies for your partner. Keep in mind this is an international swap so please know that you might be partnered with someone overseas.

Please look at your partners profile and pick some wonderfully happy goods for their birthday package.

You'll create a nice package of goodies with a birthday card, and at least 4 items from the following list:

  • 1 hand made craft based on partners profile
  • 1 postcard - please no free or ad cards -send something nice
  • 3 note cards
  • 1 pack of stickers - new

  • 1 Stationery Set (2 sheets, one envelope)
  • 2 ATC
  • one monogrammed item (notebook, note card set, hand towel, key chain, letter opener use your imagination/creativity)
  • one foodie snack: Please keep in mind customs restrictions- ask your partner if you are unsure
  • New Pen - gel, sharpie, pretty ink, colored ink..your choice just be sure it's nice quality
  • two skeins embroidery floss
  • one page address labels
  • 12 swap cards -hand drawn or quality printed from your computer be sure it has your partners swap-bot name, a line for the swap title, date line and group line
  • 3 photos of interesting local places/things in your area. Wow your partner if you choose this item :)
  • one wishlist or looking for item
  • decorated matchbox

  • two fat quarters
  • 1 pad of sticky notes
  • 1 extra fun pin or badge
  • scrapbook embelishments
  • beautiful scrapbook papers at least 4x4 square
  • 5 stamped images to use in art

I feel this gives plenty of options to surprise your partner. Please be sure to check your partners profiles for items they will USE As long as these are clean and unsoiled, you can use stuff from your stashes but feel free to buy new if you are so inclined. Please be sure to put together a package your partner will LOVE! We're aiming to make someone's day, not disappoint them.

If you think of something else you might like to get in a package, please let me know and I'll add it to the list.I tried to be as random and even as possible across the handmade/ purchased items list

Please be aware that I will be checking profiles and reserve the right to ban without explanation anyone who hasn't logged on in 2 days prior to the swap signup date: anyone with any 1 or 3s in the past 4 months whether you're working to resolve the issue or not: anyone I feel doesn't have a profile with enough information for your partner to make a nice gift for you. (fill those profiles full baby!!!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUNIES! Take a moment and leave your June birthday DAY in the comments .. you never know what might arrive on your profile :)

My birthday was in April... but it will be fun to have an unbirthday gift! Especially since the last time I did a large parcel swap like this, I was flaked on by the host herself!!! :( Can't wait for this one!!!
