Smile WA* 7th Annual Shoebox Swap --- 2013

Here We Go Again!!!

...another Shoebox Swap for NW Washington and Lower BC
(or for anyone beyond those borders who just loves to play with stamps)



Date... Saturday, September 28th
Time... 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
8:30 - 9:00 = arrival and coffee
9:00 we start crafting


Place... Laurel Church (just north of Bellingham, WA)
Registration fee... $11 ($3 for the church and $8 for the fun stuff)


Here’s the Plan...
Design a project (card, basket, box, etc)
Create 24 kits of your project. Put the kits in a shoebox or small basket
Each project/shoebox will be set at a marked space
Attendees/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 23 new projects.

Prizes...
Lots of goodies for everyone!
Door prizes!
AND vote for your favorite project
.

Registration list...
Strictly limited to 24 swappers .
I will add a waiting list if necessary.
Please...It is easier if each attendee is a Splitcoast member and signs up with her real name and user name. "Group" sign-ups are confusing to me.


Send your registration fee to me...
***New address. Don't copy from last year

Preparation:
* Design and create your card or other item.
* Assemble 2 finished examples — one for the working table and one for the "vote here" table.
* Prepare enough kits for 24 duplicates. Do a good bit of the cutting and stamping ahead of time. We will basically be assembling the projects while sharing fun and laughter.
* Use 24 small bags or envelopes and put one kit in each.
* Be sure to print 24 copies of your instructions... one for each gal, not just one for your table
* You do not need to provide tape and glue for your project.... each swapper should bring her own.

Your kits...
* 24 kits (23 for us gals to make + 1 in case there are any mistakes)
* any necessary "stuff" to create your project
+ 1 completed item so we can see what we’re making
+ 1 completed item to enter in the “Vote for Best Project”

Also bring...
* Your own tape, glue, pop-dots, scissors, pen, pencils et cetera. In other words, a small “tool kit” to carry with you from project to project.
* Check the link to Operation Write Home. If you bring cards (blank inside) we will mail them.


Sack Lunch...

This works well and no leftovers!

Name Tag...
Create your own name tag. Make it a piece of artwork that you can be proud to wear. (and I'll try to remember mine)

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.

Do they have Splitcoast names? I might be able to backtrack, but it's so much easier if I get all the info.
Also, it would be better if they subscribe to this thread. Then they will get all the updates.

They do and I just sent them an email to remind them of the date and to post a message here.

Oh, and thanks for organizing this event again! Karen

I don't anticipate being in the UK at the end of September so please sign me up! I'll see if my cousin's daughter (my upline)and another friend or two want to come. The time has gone so quickly, can't believe it's July already!

In the UK right now waiting to celebrate my GS's 7th birthday and also waiting to meet his newly adopted little brother next week before we come home.

Does anyone know how to contact Laurie... laulief??? When I posted info awhile back on the old thread, she said she wanted to attend. But now I can't get in touch with her. Old thread says it is "closed." PM says "laulief is not accepting messages."

What to do???

There is not. I tried that several years ago and ended up with albums in very odd places. Just flip through the current galleries and if you see something you like, go for it.
The biggest percentage are cards. Sometimes there are little baskets or tree ornaments.

Just remembered something. Put your name on your project somewhere... on your shoebox, on your instructions, whatever. This is for the other gals to know who to yell at.... no let me rephrase that.... to know who to ask if they need help.
