Finally! Sorry it took me this long to come up with the details and rules of the swap.  For this swap, you have to send your swap buddy something handmade by you, or some craft materials, supplies or tools that you think your swap buddy could use to further fuel her creativity.

The swap signup date starts today, April 25, 2014 and ends on April 30, 2014.  Have your package posted by May 30, 2014.

– Information to help your swap buddy decide on what to send you such as what you are interested in, what you are making at the moment and your likes and dislikes. This would help your swap buddy to tailor their gifts to you.
** These info will be shared with your swap buddy only.

4. You will receive details about your swap buddy by May 2, 2014. If you don’t get a confirmation from us in 3 days, let us know by email. That will give you almost 4 weeks to make and send your swap.
