**THE GREAT BOOKMARK EXCHANGE**

Do you like to read and make bookmarks?? I've got a perfect swap group for you!!!!

 

The Great BookMark Exchange is an ongoing swap. When you finish one swap, you can request a new partner when you're ready to swap again. Each exchange requires a minimum of 1 handmade bookmark (crocheted, knitted, or any other craft), and at least one gently used book. You can also include extra goodies -- but arrange for extras with your swap partners. :)

 

Information on the exchange can be found at our Swap Blog here:

 

www.makinbookmarks.blogspot.com

 

We're always looking for new members! Come join the fun!

 

Email me at juliwyant[at]bellsouth[dot]net if you want more information on The Great Bookmark Exchange!!

 

Hugs! Juli (craftimama)

I'm trying my hand at hosting a swap at Swap-Bot. I hope you'll join me!:sheepxmas:sheepxmas

 

CHRISTMAS LET'S SURPRISE OUR DAUGHTERS SWAP

DaughtersSwap.jpg

My daughter gets so excited when my swap boxes arrive that I'd like to have a package arrive just for her! You will prepare a Christmas swap package for a girl ages 3 to 13 (give your daughter/granddaughter's age and interests in the Discussion section).

 

 

Spending limit $20, including one handmade item. US swap only due to postage costs. There's lots of time so please be creative and only send items you'd like your child to receive. Please give hearts for extra effort – like theme or special wrapping, and be patient with the post office (I liked that comment from another swap). If your partner has more than one daughter, split the gifts evenly. Don't have daughters? Then give the gift you receive to a niece, neighbor or friend's daughter but join in on the fun. Shopping and crafting for girls is SO much fun!!

 

NEWBIES Please message me first and have your profiles well filled in.

Happy swapping!!

**The Great Bookmark Exchange**

 

We're looking for new swappers to join our exchange group!!

:)

 

Swappers exchange used books and handmade bookmarks. This is an ongoing exchange, meaning that as you finish one swap you can request a new partner, or take a break. You swap when you want, and as many times as you want.

 

You can also post book reviews, share what you are currently reading, or discuss bookmark patterns and ideas on the swap blog to share with the other members. Bookmarks are not limited to crochet. Any craft is acceptable!

 

Check out the swap blog at www.makinbookmarks.blogspot.com and join us for some readin' and craftin'!

 

Hugs! Juli

Hi everyone

I am going todo a Spring Swap. Since we are an international group I will do my best to match people from the USA with people in the USA and so on. If you have an APO/FPO address you have the option of swapping with someone in the USA or in your host country.

I will be coming up with a Questionnaire and it can be found here on my blog.

 

Sign ups will be open from Today (Jan 14th) until February14th, yes I realize this is a month. I will try to have your swap Partners out to you before February 28th. Your Box need to be post marked no LATER than March 31st, the weekend after Easter.

 

You can email me (knittinmitchie AT gmail DOT com) the questionnaire or leave it as a PM on the Ville(I'm KnittinMitchie). Also if you have any questions you can leave it here on the blog, email me or pm me.

 

When you send your box please make sure to identify your self so your pal can figure out who you are. There are a bunch of us out there on the 'Ville and it can be hard to figure out who is who.

Okay ladies and gents :

 

After reading and posting here to the ville a bunch of us that suffer from Fibromyalgia have come to the conclusion that We need to be noticed and We need support as well..

 

So for that we have decided to come up with a swap of our own to comfort each other .

 

The information for this swap is in my blog:

http://crochetcreationsbylilly.blogspot.com

 

1) We are looking for those that are willing to crochet a shawl for your assigned partner in the colors that are for the fibromyalgia awareness colors:

Purple or Purpleand pink or if you want the color specifically for Us its Cranberry...

 

2) Now also another thing we are wanting to do in a swap is:

Crochet squares in the colors above mentioned and we would send to all that sign up for enough squares to make a friendship afghan.

 

So if you suffer from this or have a friend or loved one that does then feel free to check out my blog for details and sign up as well.

thanks and gentle hugs to each of us..
