HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! The rules are very simple. You need to have been born in October. You'll have one partner. Make your partner a specially decorated little birthday box-your choice- matchbox, mint tin, ring box, jujubes box etc. Just make it something you would want to receive on your birthday. Then fill the box with trinkets your partner might like - incense, earrings, charms, beads, lip gloss - whatever! Then add a nice birthday card with a little note.

Due to time constraints and postage, I'm going to keep this to North America only. Lets make this a happy birthday for everyone, so no deadbeats. I'll be checking profiles and forums.

harleygirl 06/ 7/2007 #

Hey Meadow--I'm Oct. 14th, too! This should be fun!

shaynafay 06/ 7/2007 #

Hey Meadow and harley, I'm October 14th too! I'm glad there are other Oct. B-days out there. Sorry about it not being intl. Post office keeps raising the rates. Why don't you do an intl. oct. swap?

gypsysong 06/ 8/2007 #

Another Oct. 14th here. Wow - cool! This should be fun!

craftygirl 06/ 8/2007 #

sarasassafrass 06/11/2007 #

YOOOHOOO! I'm October 11th too! I agree best b-day ever! YEAH for getting and giving packages!

harleygirl 06/12/2007 #

I've got the perfect little box for this! It's hard plastic--a bit bigger than like a candy box, but not TOO big. It'll make somebody a nice little goodie box!

2ndstar 06/12/2007 #

I like this! My B-day is October 2nd...

Sezouli 06/22/2007 #

Wow- there's a lot of 14ths out there! I am one too actually! I've never done a b-day swap before but it sound like a lot of fun!

Pink 06/23/2007 #

No one else is October 10...? :((

mutantpenguin 06/26/2007 #

Oh foo... I'm an October baby! But I have no clue as to how to decorate any kind of container... I just know it would look childish! The last time I tried fabric paint on a tote for someone she stopped speaking to me! I HAVE NO ARTISTIC ABILITY! Now if y'all wouldn't mind a box with stickers on it, then I'm in. :) If you have ideas, contact me. I'm October 11th. And I really want to join this! I just am only creative with knitting and crochet!

user9279 06/28/2007 #

Whee! Nice to see so many October babies! I'm October 31.. yes, really, I am!

thefruid 07/ 1/2007 #

Yay :) I'm excited about this one! October 13th here.

craftsty 07/ 1/2007 #

Awesome :D I am October 21st!!!

DizMissLiz 07/ 5/2007 #

I can't wait! I love getting packages ^_^ I'm October 17th!

CADLady 07/12/2007 #

MutantPenguin, I feel your pain. I love art. DOING IT is a real challenge for me, but, you know what? LOADS of ATCs are made with stickers on them! You'll be fine.

Oh, and btw, I'm so very IN this one! (pssst:Libras love when Scorpios bite!)

Pink 07/16/2007 #

I wish this swap was international :(

pandagirl 07/16/2007 #

I'm the 15th.

Wanderlost 07/19/2007 #

I'm Oct. 1st! October birthdays are clearly the best birthdays.

adacutandpaste 07/23/2007 #

Wahoo! Add another Oct. 14th to the list. Can't believe there are so many of us. I'm new to this but have started swapping so I hope to have lots of good ratings by the time I do this swap! So excited about this one!! Fun times!

grammabean 09/13/2007 #

October 30th will be my 50th birthday. This swap sounds so FUN!! I've been dreading this birthday for some silly reason, and now I'll have a reason to look forward to it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY OCTOBERITES!!

KimyCate 09/13/2007 #

I am October 23rd!!! Woo Hoo, I don't get many presents being the mom, so I was so excited that I joined at the right time. I'll be 28, just one more year to climb the hill.... :)

There are lots of good hints in my profile, I am new, but have been on poshpoints and makeupalley for a while.

YAY, I'm so excited!!! Thanks in advance, I already have a basic idea for my swappee.... :)

Paula 09/14/2007 #

I'm ten-ten. :)

Paula 09/14/2007 #

Mutantpenguin, why not knit a little sleeve to slide over a matchbox? Or crochet a flower big enough to cover the lid of a tin? I feel your pain (my drawing ability peaked in elementary school). Anybody who judges your efforts doesn't deserve to play with us, IMHO.

KimyCate 09/14/2007 #

Hey Mutantpenguin... never underestimate the power of Decoupage.... it's easy, fun, maybe like flower arranging- it can be simple and beautiful or extensive and beautiful... check into it, it may be an art worth learning, for us less artistic folk...... :)

creativeFlutter 09/14/2007 #

Am I the only one on the 9th?

Wanderlost 09/14/2007 #

Can't believe I'm the only October 1st! Also can't believe we made the top 10! It makes sense though...especially all of you Oct. 14ths...Valentine's day would exactly 9 months before :) teehee

mandaladreamer 09/14/2007 #

I'm in! I took care to make my box ready before signing up! My day is Oct.22. Great idea.

motes 09/15/2007 #

ok! i'm in too! i'm with y'all--i'm turning 33 on october 3!

Samthatiam 09/15/2007 #

Better late than never :) October 4th is my Birthday. I saw all the 14th birthdays WOW...My son's birthday is the 14th. This sounds like a really fun swap. So early Happy Birthday to all the October Babies..

user10852 09/15/2007 #

My bday is October 9 count me. Maggie

ewenme 09/16/2007 #

My Birthday is October 3rd.

This is my last year in my 40's! Next year is the "BIG 50"!!!!

Mel 09/16/2007 #

Actually, New Year's Eve is when they were probably conceived.... :) Valentine's is only 8 months before October 14! :)

BTW, when do we find out our partners? :)

wolfmom2ac 09/16/2007 #

I am the only one with a birthday on the 12th?! Wow! That's okay! I like having the day to myself! Can't wait to see who my partner is!

Coastallorelei 09/17/2007 #
