Default COMPLETE "FRIENDS" Secret Sister swap

"FRIENDS" Secret Sister swap - Due April 10, 2014

Welcome to my new ss swap.
You will be assigned to send to the person who signs up immediately after you. The last person will send to the first person on the list.

Here are the rules:
I don't believe in assigning a specific dollar amount. I have found that everyone is generally very generous.
The reason it is called "FRIENDS" is you will send something for each letter of the word FRIENDS. Besides these item you need to include a card to your friend.

Here are some examples:
Not all items need to be paper crafting related but some of them should be.

These are just examples, be as creative as you would like, these examples are just to get you thinking.

"F" You could send flowers, something fuzzy, five of something etc.
"R" You could send something red, roses, etc.
"I" You could send ink, something irridescent, etc.
"E" you could send something edible, Easter themed, earth tones, ec.
"N" You could send something naughty, nutty, nine of something etc.
"D" You could send designer paper, decorative ribbon, etc.
"S" You could send something spicy, six of something, something silver, etc.

So there you go with some ideas. Be creative!

Remember to ask you sister for some input of likes and dislikes on the thread.

Be sure to mail in time for your secret sister to receive her package on time.

Ok all we need now is to sign up.

Please specify if you want US only. If I need to rearrange names to accomodate I will. So do not start your shopping until we are officially closed. I will close sign ups at the end of January.

Here are some of the things I've come up with (so far)! I guess this may be addressed to dzgs91 (unless you change the list of names order) but ideas for everyone

F - Flowers, Fine Glitter, Frames, Flower Soft, Fudge

R - Red Rubber, Red Line Tape, (Tape) Runner, Rhinestones

I - Ink Pad, Ink Refill

E - Edge Punch, Embossing Folder, Embellishments, A2 Envelopes

N - Nuts, Nestabilities (I've found these on clearance at Michael's for as low as $6.99)

D - Die Cuts, Designer Paper, Dots (SU item), Dots (Candy), Dark Chocolate

S - Sticky Strip, Snowman, Shopping Tote, Snickers, Socks, Stamps, Stylus, Surprise

I'll add to this as I think of more things......and these are IDEAS not EXPECTATIONS!

Hi Janice - I would like to join this swap if you are still accepting swappers. Your ideas for swaps are so much fun. I'm going to shoot for getting these out the door by the beginning of March so I don't run into last minute tax season craziness (I work in banking and my life becomes a massive bundle of frantic nerves from March 15 to April 15). I would prefer US, but will ship to canada if you run out of people who can.

Just remember that the list might need to be rearranged to suit US only needs, so until I close sign ups (next week) it is not final. So far it is looking good though for no changes.
Once it is finalized be sure to contact your secret sister for her address. Then feel free to ask questions of her on the thread. Your question might help someone else. I love the contribution of ideas for each letter that have been posted. It will help when some of us have a brain freeze!

For my swap partner in case you need some ideas, I figured I would answer the "FRIENDS"

F - Feathered Friends - Anything Cockatoo, Parrot, Owl or even backyard bird inspired, Foam pop dots, flowers, Fancy Pants Designer Paper - Be Loved Collection, natural feathers (to embellish cards and 12x12 scrapbook pages)
R - Regional inspired items (I like getting things from your area), Red Tape Adhesive, Rhinestones, rub ons
I - Ink - white staz on, distress ink from Tim Holtz
E - Envelopes (I can always use these), embellishments (Search: bird > Bird Shaped Paper Clips - Lady Bird - Prima: A Cherry On Top), embossing folders (Search: bird > Bird Houses 6 x 6 Embossing Folder - Die'sire: A Cherry On Top), Echo Park Head Over Heels Paper Collection
N - Northern Inspired items (anything that deals with woodlands) examples, Bo Bunny Woodland Winter Collection, Prima Natural bark icons (Prima - Natural Bark Icons - Wood Embellishments - Hearts), Lawn Fawn -Into the Woods stamp set,
D - Distress Stickles from Tim Holtz, Doodle Bug Designs - Sweetheart Collection, Doilies (that fit on standard card)
S - Stamps - phrases/expressions for Birthday or any holiday (that you would use on the inside of a card), Stampotique stamps (any of the Alice in Wonderland ones from artist Janet Klien, or monsters from artist Kira Nichols), Shimmer Spritz, SEI Paper Berry Melody Collection

Please do not send me anything that has a scent like candles or soaps. I love candles however Iím no longer able to burn them in the house with my bird, and Iím allergic to scented soaps.

I'm going to go get a few generic supplies from the American Craft warehouse sale before the sale ends Friday. Saturday Everything was 20 % the entire place. The big paper pads were about 4.50. Embellishments were .50. Red liner tape 1.00.

Question: Are we going to do a questionnaire to get to know our Secret Sister or should we just send them questions according to our ideas?

Happy Friday to Everybody.

Just post questions on the thread, and anyone can feel free to answer because it will help their ss too.
