Name should say it all. :-)

Over the past year, I've 'collected' different crafty type items I'll just not use for some reason or another. (Perhaps I got an item in another swap I just don't know what to do with it or I've gotten a package of scrapbook papers and only needed one or two pages--you get the idea). This is your chance to pass along some of those items you've 'collected'.

Fill a 6"x9" envelope with these items. Of course, you can go larger or use a small flat rate box if needed. Since 'fill' can mean different things to different people, for this swap, 'fill' will consist of five (5) different items. No putting in 5 different piece of ribbon, for example, and calling it a day. If you go with multiples of an item (like the ribbon example), that'll count as one item. Send a package you'd like to receive.

Ideas of what to include: ribbons, notecards with envies, paper punches, rubber stamps, ink pads, card stock, package of brads, embellishments, scapbook papers etc. These are just some ideas.

Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile. Established swappers with a 4.9+ rating. No recent 1's or 3's (no 1's in last 6 months, no 3's in last 3 months). Message me with queries. I reserve the right to ban if I feel you might be iffy. Please no flaking, I am unable to angel this one. All items are senders choice, but please check your partner's profile to check likes/dislikes. Rate based on if it meets swap guidelines, not if you like everything.

Message me with any questions, comments or concerns.

Just wanted to double check before I sign up, is this swap regional - us or international? Thanks! This sounds like a fun swap!

Would anyone have a problem with Christmas crafting supplies?

luvdmb36 12/16/2013 #

I would prefer no holiday supplies, but that's just me....

mrscuddleton 12/17/2013 #

I would not mind Christmas crafting supplies. Thanks for asking!

bbsporty 12/17/2013 #

ladydy5 12/17/2013 #

I do not need any Christmas type crafting supplies but if that is all you have feel free to send them.

catmmann 12/17/2013 #

I m new to swap bot! I would love to join your swap!

Momskii 12/18/2013 #

I don't mind supplies of any kind, Christmas included. I am just watching for now to see if I can get my act together before the deadline.

AZmom875 12/19/2013 #

I am not really into holiday crafting .

beenebag 12/23/2013 #

Actually, I just destashed my Christmas supplies! Please no more if possible:)

doulakk 12/23/2013 #

I won't ever use holiday or birthday stuff, so please don't send... I just hate throwing it away. (I don't celebrate, nor promote them due to my beliefs, just so you know.) Thanks, KK

Just wanted to highlight, for anyone less experienced or versed in swapping, that the host has marked this as a sender's choice swap. "Rate based on if it meets swap guidelines, not if you like everything." Checking profiles and meeting requests as posted in these comments is optional in sender's choice swaps.

Of course, we all want to make each others' day and send something our partner will love. But if I feel like I have to go out and BUY something for a destash swap because I don't have anything you've requested NOT to receive, where does that leave me as a sender? Feeling kind of bad and not being able to destash! Which is the point! Just a thought. <3 Happy holidays!

hear hear latentsmile.

starhiker 12/29/2013 #

As a sender I'm going to choose not to send christmas things because the holiday is over and people would just have to store them until next season. As a reciever I'd rather not get an envie of xmas things I will not use until next year but its senders choice so thats up to my sender. And if the person I get would like christmas things have I got a boat load!

ladydy5 12/30/2013 #

I surely hope no one rates low because they did not get what they wanted. It is senders choice . If you do not have anything to send then don't join this swap. I said above that I would prefer not to get Christmas items but if that is all you have, send it. There is listed in her description some ideas of things to send too

smadronia 12/30/2013 #

I have my envelope all ready to go!

MrsAlderman 12/31/2013 #

so glad I found this swap! I have a box ready to go will goodies in all sorts of specialty's. no holiday in this box though as I don't really craft with holiday Items. (I just use the colors I have and match for the season lol, makes the supplies go farther!!)

Teddybear 12/31/2013 #

Catnipitis, can you please check your pm before deciding whether I can join this swap. I'm Canadian but have an American address to send the swap to. Thanks.

Fritosmom 01/ 2/2014 #

You'll can send me all your Christmas extras.

prettybonesdavis 01/ 5/2014 #

my last swap experience was AWFUL because the person was very sketchy about receiving my swap so i will be checking after i send it periodically to see if it has arrived. (trying to get double stuff??) i had 4 partners and only one besides her was still waiting and that person was overseas (taking much more time to arrive)... so this is my first swap after that and i'm looking forward to it!!! you guys seem great! yay craft stuff!! :)

latentsmile 01/30/2014 #

Messaged my partner that I MAY be late in sending this. We had a child in our family pass away this week but I will be doing my best...

papergirl45 02/12/2014 #

waiting to hear if my partner rec'd her stuff already. haven't heard anything yet.

indygirlfriend 02/27/2014 #

sdakotadarling 03/ 7/2014 #

sdakotadarling 03/ 7/2014 #
