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.

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...

* 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.

Thanks, Karen

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.

c3wham 07-01-2013 05:29 PM

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. :)

GarnetJ 07-04-2013 09:59 PM

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???

YLM 07-05-2013 06:42 AM

can't wait

GarnetJ 07-05-2013 11:35 PM

Silly Cindy!!! I have an idea in my head. It was in Technique Junkies a few issues back.

laulief 07-06-2013 06:37 AM

Hi Garnet!
Thanks for signing me up! So excited, off to to plan my project=)

GarnetJ 07-06-2013 09:21 AM

Thank YOU for posting, Laurie. I thought perhaps I lost you.

GarnetJ 07-09-2013 01:23 PM

Only one space left, but several gals I have not heard from.

Crafty Julia 07-09-2013 04:25 PM

Thanks, Garnet! I'm on the right page now. Posted the check last night with a small card :)

HeatherN_WA 07-10-2013 10:43 PM

You've got it!

HeatherN_WA 07-11-2013 03:01 PM

YAY! Now, don't let me forget. ;) Sue, will you remind me?

GarnetJ 07-11-2013 04:57 PM

Hoping every gal will subscribe to the thread and chat a lot. I love little clues about all your projects.

HeatherN_WA 07-11-2013 08:34 PM

Is there a gallery of pictures from past swaps? I would love to see what was done before so I have an idea of what to do for this one. :)

laulief 07-11-2013 08:41 PM

Garnet, I just realized that I will not be able to attend, I get back from a trip out of town that day, I'm soo disappointed I will miss all the fun.

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.

Well shucks!!! If your plans should agin change, let me know!

noraluvscards 07-12-2013 12:03 PM

Garnet, sorry....I haven't checked splitcoast for the longest time....yes, if there is still room for me, I'm in! I'll also let you know in facebook...I'll print the instructions and everything that goes with it! Can't wait!

GarnetJ 07-13-2013 10:42 AM

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.
