Default FINISHED/ARCHIVED Not So New Year, New Year SS Swap - APRIL

For several years I use to host a weight loss/weight maintenance swap here on SCS and we had a lot of fun with that swap. Thru the years I realized that a six month or even three month commitment was difficult for folks, so our steady group of swappers drifted away. But I miss the chatter, the little lifts of getting a card in the mail or a small inspiring pkg with healthy goodies. As usual I struggle with maintaining my healthy eating habits. I also struggle with my workout schedule between work and gloomy Michigan weather. So this swap is for all of you that need a boost, a word of encouragement or a friend to give you a gentle push out the door. You might want to loose weight, you might want to work out more, or you just might need a kind word. Also, if you are like me you love Secret Sister swaps, so the person who has you will be a secret.

I am hoping to make this a monthly series. But you can join this month, skip next and join up again. Each one will be a separate swap and the items we exchange will be different each month.

This month we will stay simple again: 2 handmade inspiration cards (can be humorous or a nice saying - anything that will bring a smile to your Secret Sisters face) Challenge for this month (optional): Being it is April (April Fools) if you feel up to a challenge, make one card a humorous card. Some people are religious and some are not, so let's be respectful and we should be fine. There are so many beautiful sayings out there to choose from and some pretty funny ones, too. The two cards can be sent separately or at the same time, but keep it a SECRET until you send the final time. You may or may not include an "extra" something, it is up to you. But remember the minimum is to send two handmade cards.

Quantity: 2 cards to one person

Vendor products: NVR

Deadlines:
Sign-up date: April 7, 2016
Postmark date: April 29, 2016

Looking forward to April Swaps - I am getting them organised now as April means School holidays in Australia - and I am going to away for a few weeks. But I hope to be ready to post my cards before I go.

All names have been assigned, if you didn't get yours please send me a PM. Thanks

Off to the SU convention on Monday morning bright and early, I hope we don't get the 3-5 inches of snow they are calling for - come one it is spring, enough of the snow, snowing tonight. I am riding the train to SLC from Michigan - it is a very pretty ride, goes through the pass right out of Denver and then it is beautiful for several miles. My DH is flying right now to Boise and his DD will bring him to meet me in SLC later in the week and then we will hop on the train again to go to Reno and then Carson City before heading home on the train. So going out I have the sleeper car to myself - yippee - more space.

I received the prettiest card today from my April SS. It was so delicately decorated and I loved that the card and envelope matched (I need to start doing that!) Thank you, SS for your kind wishes.

Just wanted to let you all know that there will not be a May swap for this group. It will be back later this summer. Everyone is so busy at this time of the year, decided to give us a break. So look for me to post a swap at the end of July or August. Love you all!

I received a beautiful card from my Secret Sister. I love the pinwheel fold card. I hadn't seen that fold before, so now I'm anxious to try it myself. The botanicals paper is wonderful, and the belly band on the card is beautifully decorated. Loved this happy mail! Made my day! Thanks so much!!

I received my 1st card yesterday from my sis. Thank you sis for the lovely card. I know what you mean about opening the windows. I couldn't wait for the warmer weather! I love to have the windows open! It just feels so good to have fresh air in the house.

Got a very nice, inspiration card from my SS today, it was in with all my mail that was being saved at the post office for me, when I returned from a trip to the SU convention, then onto Reno. Very cheerful and "springy" card, thanks so much.
