Here’s the Plan...
Design a card (or other project... ornament, box, bag, etc)
Create 2 completed items (1 for a sample at the craft table and 1 to display for voting)
Create 20 kits of your card. (number may be smaller-- depends on attendees) Put the kits in a shoebox or small basket.
Using 20 small bags or envelopes make a kit for each of the gals attending.
Be sure to print 20 copies of your instructions... one for each gal.
You do not need to provide tape and glue for your project.... each swapper should bring her own.
Your project/shoebox will be set at a marked space.
Swappers will move from project to project. (Some people will finish faster than others, but there is plenty of space to work side by side when needed. Each of us will go home with 19 new projects.)


What to bring...
Your "shoebox" with...
* the 20 kits (19 for us gals to make + 1 in case there are any mistakes)
* any "stuff" we will need to create your project
* the 2 completed items
* Your own "tool kit" to carry with you from project to project.tape, glue, pop-dots, scissors, pen, pencils et cetera.
* If you have extra cards at home that you would like to donate to the church's card ministry, we would be delighted to have them.


Sack Lunch…
This has worked well previously and no leftovers!

Name Tag...
Create your own name tag. Make it a piece of artwork that you can be proud to wear.

Janitor’s request...
No loose glitter. No embossing powder. Those things get in the carpet and stay for months. Stickles are fine. Watercolors and chalk are great.

Thank you SO MUCH! I think that if I contact Tweedle Tea, that would be the one I am missing.

Looking through the gallery, I might decide to do a Valentine for the swap.

15 will most likely cover it. Right now there are just 12 names on the list.

Numbers are going up. 14 on list so maybe you should do a few more. I think I will "close" the registration on September 1st.
