Default WA - BC …. 8th Annual Shoebox Swap

8th Annual Shoebox Swap
for NW Washington and Lower BC
(or for anyone beyond those borders who just loves to play with stamps)


Date... Saturday, October 4
Time... 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
9:00 - 9:30 = arrival and coffee
9:30 we start crafting


Place... Laurel Church (just north of Bellingham, WA) map
Registration fee... $10 ($5 for the church and $5 for the fun stuff)


Prize for the favorite project!!!

Here’s the Plan...
Design a card (or other project... ornament, box, bag, etc)
Create 2 completed cards (1 to display with your kits and 1 to display for voting)
Create 20 kits of your card. Put the kits in a shoebox or small basket
Each project/shoebox will be set at a marked space
All 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.)

Default What to do

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 20 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 20 small bags or envelopes and put one kit in each.
* Be sure to print 20 copies of your instructions... one for each kit, NOT just one copy for your table
* You do not need to provide tape and glue for your project.... each swapper should bring her own.


Your kits...
* 20 kits (19 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.


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.

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.

Free Stuff?

Do you have a FEW things in your craft room that you probably are never going to use???? Bring them for our FREE STUFF box. Please, NOT a ton of stuff. Just a few things.

Operation Write Home
* Check the link below. They do not need as many this year. If you would like to donate a few cards for Operation Write Home, I would be happy to send them to Sandy in Federal Way along with all the others I need to mail.

I had to wait until I saw my son's cross country schedule (they have a lot of Saturday meets) and it looks like I'll be able to make it this year! His meet is in Eastern Washington that day so I'd rather have some crafting time than drive over there. I'll get my check in the mail this week.

I've been suffering a severe loss of mojo the last few months, so I hope I can get a project put together.

It looks like there are three people with $$$ in the mail. That should bring the attendance up a bit.

Good afternoon, everyone! Have you guys worked on your project? I'm getting my supplies ready - it's not easy with working full time and taking care of 2 little ones....Alex Jr already started 1st grade so there is homework to do, too....we have open house tonight, so I don't know if I will have time tonight, but we still have ....oh my, 3 weeks left!!!????

Where has the time gone? Ok, see you guys later!

Take care!

Looks like it will be a small group this year. Maybe you all will only need to make a dozen cards.

I am feeling so bad right now, I know that I responded to this thread a few weeks ago that I'd be able to make it, but unfortunately life has gotten in the way once again. I would have no trouble making it to the event, but I just haven't had any stamping time this month to get a project put together. And when I saw that this was happening this Saturday, I knew that there would be no way I could participate. For some reason I thought it was only mid September and I had a couple more weeks

Anyway, I hope that you'll forgive my lapse and I'll try to make it happen next year.
