Arrow headed home weird-n-Wacky Holidays 3+1 card swap

Did you know, February 22nd marked National Margarita Day? Yep, I totally could get into celebrating that particular holiday![/COLOR]

So it got me to thinking of a new swap - because that's what swappers do at 2 am, right? Hence, the Weird, Wild, and Wacky Holiday Swap you've landed at.

Here are links to just a few weird and wacky holidays (google "wacky holidays" for a huge list of sites!): HOLIDAYS 2011 (Official): Daily, Monthly, Weekly, Bizarre, Crazy, Unknown, Silly, Strange, Weird, Dumb, Odd, Wacky, Wild, Traditional, Respected Observances, Awareness Days, Theme Days & Celebrations.

Groundhog Day, Clean Air Celebration month, heck - how about Guy Fawkes Day...if it's an "unusual" holiday you wouldn't ordinarily send a card for here in the US, I want to see a creation for it! Let's stock up on some fun and fabulous cards for those "other" holidays. Come to find out, I have a friend with a birthday on National Margarita Day, how cool would a themed card have been to send her?

Now, for the boring and dull details of this-here swap, that we all know by now but I must nevertheless post anyway:
~You'll be sending in 3+1 (4 total) cards...the plus-1 is for me, your hostess.
~They are due IN MY HAND by July 4th....I thought what better day to make our swap due than a pretty important holiday?
~They must reflect any unusual or strange holiday - can be a monthlong holiday (like Clean Air month) or a one-day holiday
~If you'll be late, let me know ASAP and we'll work it out. I don't bite, honest.
~You may take multiple spots, but each must be different.
~Return envelope and return postage plus 2 spare stamps required - no metered strips of postage allowed. I will NOT return swaps without postage. Will cheerfully recycle your envie, just mark on the outside if you'd like me to re-use it.
~Please use good quality cardstock, at least two layers and 1 embellishment.
~Sign the back of your cards so we know who's terrific work we get back.
~International swappers welcomed - just please keep extra mailing times and postage costs in your mind when signing up and sending in.
and most importantly: HAVE FUN with this one! this is not a serious swap at all...just a chance to prove there is something worth celebrating every single day.
~When you are ready to mail, please post and let me know and I'll do in kind when I get your swap. Mail your wild-n-wacky creations to:
Chris Brault
5307-B Suburban Dr
Cambridge, MD 21613


Questions? PM me or post below. I am not the most active poster, "chat wise", but will reply to everything that needs my attention.

Good Morning Fellow Swappers!

Yum! Yum! Today is National Banana Cream Pie Day!
Doesn't that sound good?





Here's a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


Uncle Sam says you should not use the flag as a costume or athletic uniform --- and never as wallpaper.

The Govenor of Kansas has asked that all homes show the American flag on Mother's Day.

United States law says city lights must be electric --- no gaslights!

No one may appear in court barefoot in Hawaii.

And if you drive a car barefoot in New Jersey, you can get in trouble with the law.



Have a Day!

Good Morning Friends!

Ewwwwwwwww... today is National Cold Cuts Day.
Am I the only one who thinks they are less than desirable?


But, it's still a good day for a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

In New Jersey, you have to be serious when you pledge to the flag. No jumping up and down, playing a drum, singing a song, or pounding on the table.

You may not tell fortunes for money in Kansas City.

In New York, you are not permitted to throw a ball at someone's head for fun.

Montclair, New Jersey outlaws skateboards.

Disco dance contests lasting more than eight hours are against the law in Tennessee.



Have a marvelous day - with or WITHOUT cold cuts.

Good Morning, Ladies!

TGIF!!!
It's International Scrapbooking Industry Day!


Here's a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


It is illegal to feed whiskey or cigarettes to animals at the Manville, New Jersey zoo.

You may not use an elephant to plow a cotton field in North Carolina.

Pickles in Connecticut must bounce.

You may not carry an ice cream cone in your pocket in Lexington, Kentucky.

Watch out for selling ice cream in front of your house if you live in New York. It's against the law. And that goes for frozen yogurt, too!



Keep smiling!
Your mug shot might find its way on a Scrapbook page someday.

Hey chicks!
I'm here....sorry been MIA all week, I have an old hip injury that causes arthritis and it has flared up beyond belief this week. I gave in and headed to the doc this morning, basically I have a few weeks to try and ease it up with even more meds and light therapy, or we're going to be talking hip replacement (which I knew was coming eventually). It's just been a bummy kind of week, I haven't even turned my laptop on all week!!

So a big old WELCOME!!!! to all the folks joining this swap - I think it's going to be a hoot, glad so many agree.

What's everyone up to this weekend? I have to take my 7 yr old DD and her friend to a 50's style sock hop for Girl Scouts, otherwise, just more bumming around making this hip pain go the heck away! It's supposed to be a pretty nice weekend here in MD, so I'm hoping to at least get out in the sun a bit.

Good Morning Ladies!

It's National Cheese Doodle Day!

♫♪♫♫♪ I'm a Cheesy Doodle Dandy.... tee hee!!! ♪♪♫♪

Here's a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


In Wisconsin, if you buy a meal for $0.25 or more, you supposed to get free two-thirds of an ounce of famous Wisconsin cheese.

Arlington, Virginia forbids dogs that growl.

Some towns in New Jersey forbid garage sales -- unless the house is up for sale.

It is against the law in Tennessee to call another person a coward if he refuses to duel.

In New York City, you may not grow poison ivy or ragweed in your window box.



♪♪♫ Keep singing and munching those Cheesy Doodles! ♫♪♫

Hi Chris! Sorry to hear you're dealing with so much pain. UGH!!! Hope the therapy/meds do the trick and you're soon feeling much much better!

Oh, how fun.... I loved doing Girl Scouts with my DD when she was that age!

Good Morning Ladies!

Today is National Frozen Food Day...
Frozen Pizza for everyone ( but let's bake it first, okay?)

Oh, and it's also National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day!
YUM! YUM! Dessert!!!



While the oven's preheating for those pizzas,
here's a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


No bull fighting, says the law in Kentucky.

Dogs and cats in Bessemer, North Carolina are not allowed to fight each other.

In Kansas, it is against the law to keep dead animals in your house.

In Nebraska, tavern owners must have a kettle of soup bubbling.

The law in New Jersey says if you are eating in a restaurant, you may not slurp soup.



I have to go out of town overnight (statewide meeting - BORING!)...
I'll see you again on Tuesday morning!

Good Morning Ladies!

It's National Peanut Cluster Day!

hmmmmmm... reminds me of a story...

There was a bus driver,And there were a group of older passengers in the bus.So a lady goes up to bus driver and has a bunch of peanuts in her hand the bus driver says "Thanks" and eats them.The lady comes back a second time with more peanuts and the bus driver eats them and says "Cheers" The lady comes back a third time with another handful of peanuts.The bus driver says "Why do you keep bringing me peanuts?Why dont you just eat them yourself? The lady says,The peanuts hurt our teeth so we only suck off the chocolate.





Now for today's
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


You are not permitted to charge for home permanents in Beaumont, Texas.

No bicycle race in New York is supposed to last longer than eight hours.

In Tallahassee, Florida, state inspectors have to smile while conducting automobile safety checks.

Chicago outlaws juggling.

It is against the law in New York to chop down a cherry tree --- today, even George Washington would have to have a license.




Stress wouldn't be so hard to take if it were chocolate covered.

Eat a square meal a day; eat a BOX of chocolate covered peanuts.

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

Good Morning Ladies!

It's National Crabmeat Day!
That makes me wonder... does the eating of crabmeat make one crabby?


I hope not!

Here's a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Ridgewood, New Jersey makes it against the law to build a treehouse in your backyard.

In Houston, Texas, boys may not make goo goo eyes at girls --- there's a goo goo eyes law!

Uncle Sam outlaws sounds trucks with loud, blaring noises on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Don't let your dog bite the postman. You could be in trouble with the FBI.

It's against the law in Brooklyn, New York to shoot a rabbit from the back of a trolley car.



Now remember... if you travel to Houston and the boys don't make goo goo eyes at you, it doesn't mean they don't like you. They're just abiding by the law.

Good Morning Ladies!

Today is National Blueberry Popover Day!
If you're making them, I might pop-over and have one at your house.


Here's today's
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

In New York, three people are not permitted to ride on a bicycle built for one.

And every bicycle must have a bell.

And you must keep your feet on the pedals, or you'll be in trouble with the law!

You must not make cabbage soup on Sunday in Ocean City, New Jersey, unless you cut the cabbage the day before.

San Antonio, Texas does not allow the building of a cotton gin.

Good Morning Ladies! TGIF!!!

Today is Worship of Tools Day...
Let's put our tools to work - our Cricuts, Cuttlebugs, Punches, Paper Trimmers, Crimpers, etc. Give them the love they deserve on this special day.


Here's a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNEMENT

You cannot keep snowballs in the refrigerator in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.

In Maine, the first day of winter is Chester Greenwood Day, in honor of the man who invented earmuffs.

No one can toot-toot a train whistle in Richmond, Virginia.

In Evansville, Indiana, it is against the law to sell hamburgers on Sunday.

If you have a pet tiger in Louisiana, you must keep him in a cage.



Did I mention that it's Friday? YAY!!!
The weekend is almost here!!!

Good Morning Ladies!

Awwwwww... it's Saturday!
I Saturdays!


It's also Plant a Flower Day, but I think it's a little too cold to do that here.

But it IS a perfect time for a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT


In Willingboro, New Jersey, you may not put a 'For Sale' sign in front of your house.

In California, no mean person may force a kid to buy a horror comic book.

In Ohio, it is illegal to gallop your mule.

In New York, you can be arrested for paying a child under sixteen to collect cigar stumps.

For safety's sake, at wrestling matches in Richmond, Virginia, fans may not buy soda in bottles, only in paper cups.





Enjoy your Saturday!!!
