July - The Patriot

M2M (month 2 month) Swaps are theme swaps designed to take a little more time and effort for a planned ahead craft. Boxes are suggested to be small to save on post, but full of creative goodies.

You will send your partner:

1 small pattern that will use Red White Blue yarn

The yarn to complete the project

The notions needed, including the hook or needles (your partners preference)

Favorite 4th of July Recipe on note card

A red, white, and blue decoration, stickers, or magnet

Book on American History or that renders our history in a story line (Civil War - A Presidential Bio - Gone With the Wind) Books may be used or from the discount bin but lets make sure they are in really good condition for our new friend


Swappers 4.0 or higher please

No no-sends

Follow the theme and include ALL items listed

Send only new items (notions yarn etc) or items in like new condition

Complete profiles are needed

Post when sent - Contact friend and hostess

Packages must be sent on or before date listed

Flickr account and blog preferred

Contact your partner and say "Hello" ask them what they like read do craft (crochet knit) If late you must contact partner and hostess Please pass or drop if you think you will not be able to keep up Make sure to say thank you and post pictures if able in Flickr Send a package like you would want to receive

Angels are really important in these swaps please let me know if you would like to send a few Just In Case items for anyone who's not received their box. I usually keep a few of these on hand to put an angel box together. I do send thank you gifts to my angles so your random act of kindness is not unnoticed :)

Please make sure to chat often as you can with your new swap friend - post on their blog start a conversation and new friendship. One thing I have noticed about swaps - people rarely get to know each other.

While each swap includes a list of treats and treasures the goal is to keep this fun and not expensive. Nice items are important but fun packages can be put together with lots of fun items found from discount and dollar store hunting.

I am sleepingrover2010 or more importantly Barb Brandt. I am going to be out of town from May 24-June 2nd on a family celebration in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We are celebrating our mother's 75th birthday. So, if I am your partner for this swap--know that I will contact you after June 2nd to gather info from you for this swap. Please be patient with me.

Info for my Partner:

  1. I love to read historical fiction, interesting bios on important men and women of history. I already have John Adams, the books on George Washington. I would love a really good bio on Abraham Lincoln or some other early Presidents. Historical fiction from different eras would be fine.

  2. I would like a simple knitting project as one of my goals is to learn how to knit.

  3. I would prefer red, white, and blue stickers and/or scrapbooking paper related to July 4th, and/or Flag Day.

  4. Please look at my profile as well and you can gather a lot of info.
