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 less-- depends on the number of attendees)
Put the kits in small bags or envelopes
Put the bags in a shoebox or small basket.

Be sure to print 20 copies of your instructions...one inside each kit.


You do not need to provide tape and glue for your project.... each swapper should bring her own.
Your "shoebox" will be set at a marked space.
Swappers will move from shoebox to shoebox.
(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
* any "stuff" we will need to create your project
* the 2 completed items

* Your own "tool kit" to carry with you from table to table...tape, glue, pop-dots, scissors, pen, pencils et cetera.
* If you have extra cards at home that you would like to donate to the Laurel 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.

Default October Shoebox Swap

Such an age since I logged into SCS! Garnet, it was lovely to get your invitation to the shoebox swap but I no longer live in Mission BC! I’m in Yellowknife, NT now so much further north. Obviously I won’t be able to make it. Would have been nice to catch up again. Recently connected with Danita Rixen on Facebook and I know she no longer lives in Bellingham or was it Lyndon? Have a wonderful meet and take care. Still card making but I no longer do swaps.

Hi Ruth! Thank you for posting! Yes, it's been ages. Hope you are doing well. Danita lives in North Dakota, but her daughter lives in Whatcom County, so I hope she will be able to make the trip in October.
I have found a couple of places (via Splitcoast) to donate cards when I make too many. Keeps me moving. God's blessings!!!

Hi Garnet, I'd am unable to attend this shoebox swap. I've moved out of Washington and now live in New Mexico! I sure have missed these swaps though. I always enjoyed the cards and the company. I'm sure this one will be another fun day.

Hi Karen. I did know that you had moved. Just forgot which Splitcoast name was yours and sent the invite to everyone. So, you're not ready for a Washington vacation in October? lol

Oh, I'd love a WA vacation in October, but I'm going on a cruise later that month! I'll be with about 40 other card makers!! So I'll be getting my cardmaking in during the sea days!!
