Welcome to the Mystery Supply swap! This will be a “same supply” swap where I will send out the same mystery supply to everyone, and you will incorporate it into a small paper craft for your partner. The type of paper craft you make is sender’s choice (although it is always helpful to check your partner’s profile), but could include inchies, twinchies, ATCs, rolos, tags, cards, etc.

I ordered enough of the mystery supply so that it is open to 140 people (I will faint if we get that many)! EDITED - To be clear, this is one, small craft supply that I will send to everyone to incorporate in their project. The majority of your project will be from your own supply stash.

I have set the “sign up” and “send by” dates far enough apart to allow for everyone to receive their mystery supply.

Janet - are your crazy? lol

spotteddogs 06/11/2013 #

Yeah, maybe!!! These are so much fun, though!!!

TerryF 06/11/2013 #

I am going to watchlist this for now since I am pretty much guaranteed a spot if I join later (I will keep an eye on the numbers though, just in case it gets close to 140 lol).

Fatherted 06/11/2013 #

156 members in the group at the moment, nah.. the chance is high you miss the swap, terry ;) Janet, very very nice and so crazy! Thank you for hosting!

This sounds fun! Do you know what the biggest swap has been in TPD?

spotteddogs 06/14/2013 #

No, I don't know what the biggest one is, but Paige split up the last same supplies swap into 2, so I am guessing it would be that one!! That was a LOT of kits for her to put together! Anyone else know?

The MYSTERY intrigues me!

toothteri 06/26/2013 #

So excited- this is such a great idea! Thanks for being wonderful, spotteddogs!

Paige1900 06/28/2013 #

I am not as brave as Janet. I was paranoid that kits would get lost. Plus breaking the cost of postage out over 2 pay periods was the only way I could do it. Ya'll have fun.

Tatsu 07/ 3/2013 #

Amazingly crazy, creative idea, Janet. ;D

TerryF 07/ 3/2013 #

Paige limited each of her 2 ATC swaps to 15 people (plus herself). Her mermaid swap was limited to 25. (plus herself)

So it looks like this swap is the biggest one so far!

Tatsu 07/ 6/2013 #

I think this epic swap deserves some photos. It would be cool to see what each of us makes with the kits, no?

spotteddogs 07/ 6/2013 #

I will open a thread when the swap deadline gets closer so that people can post pics. Thanks for thinking of that!

This is going to be a fun swap! Hugs from Alaska!

Lynne72 07/18/2013 #

I haven't tried this type of swap before, it looks a lot of fun..I just want to make sure I am understanding correctly..we will receive goodies to make a goodie for our partner..and are we able to add stuff to the item we make or is it strictly from what it is sent? And on the posting, I am still clueless on how to post pics.. :(

spotteddogs 07/18/2013 #

This isn't a kit for this swap this time. It is one small supply, that you will incorporate into a craft made mostly of your stash. I will mail the mystery supply out a few days after the sign up date, then after you receive it, you will decide what to make with it and then send what you made to your partner. If you don't know how to post pics, I can send you instrtuctions via a PM or possibly your receiving partner can post it for you. It's not required to post a pic, it's just fun to see what people made. Hope you join!

Lynne72 07/19/2013 #

thanks!! I am going to give it a try!!

TerryF 07/19/2013 #

I sure hope the mystery supply isn't a wad of chewed gum...

hibiscus 07/20/2013 #
