Ok, everybody! Here we go! I copied these directions from the New AK Swap (thanks, Maggie!). I'm going to start with two groups. . .if we have lots of people sign up, I'll increase it to 3 groups. I changed a couple of the elements--I hope that works for everyone!

Swap is due June 24th--please mail before this date so it will get to me by June 24th. (I'll send everyone my address by the first of June). You can reach me through email at natazu@gmail.com.

****Packaging: Make individual packets of your swap items for each person--you will have 10 sets for each group you are in. Wrap swap items in a baggie or plastic wrap. Place the individual baggies/plastic wrapped items inside another larger baggie, then place this in the priority mail envelope.

Write your real name, DIS name, and swap group number on a piece of paper and include it in each individual's baggie or put on a label on the outside of each individual package so we know who made each of the items.

**Return: Send a priority mail stamp or $4.05 to cover the costs of mailing your package back to you.

If something happens and you cannot finish your swap, or your swap items are delayed, PLEASE let me know so we can either find a replacement for you, or we know that you are still participating.

WOW! Sign-ups are going great!

disneyfreakk--I know just how you feel with the computer! Mine never wants to do what I want it to do!

I have updated the sign-ups on the first entry!

Happy swapping! :teeth:

All right, ladies! This is awesome! I can't wait to see all of our terrific swappin' stuff! I added a group 3 AND a group 4 on page 1 (the original post). That way, if you are just signing up now, you could get in on 2 groups. Anyone interested in the library pocket in group 2?

Queenie--OF COURSE you can do this from the UK! You will just have to explain to my ignorant self how to do the postage! :rotfl2:

ScrappinMom--what element would you like from group 3??

I am so excited about this swap! :cheer2:

disneyfreakk
03-20-2006, 03:45 PM
I would also like to do a shaker box for group 3 if thats okay :) theme is Fantasmic!

disneyfreakk
03-20-2006, 03:49 PM

Topper in group 3 (can I do JOJo circus??? We have alot of pictures with JoJo and Goliath. If not I'll do playhouse disney)

Let me know.

StitchIsOurHero
03-20-2006, 04:02 PM
disneyfreakk--I've got your themes down, and I've got you added to group 3.

fanofthemouse--I've got you added, also. . .JoJo's Circus works for me! I'm like you--we always end up with pictures of JoJo and Goliath from either the little character areas or the Stars & Motor Cars parade!

ksjayhawks
03-20-2006, 04:11 PM
I would like the tag in group 3. will let you know on theme later.

scrappinmom
03-20-2006, 04:25 PM
HOw about Photo Mats in group 3? & I can do Jo'Jo's Circus to go with the toppers?

StitchIsOurHero
03-20-2006, 04:36 PM
I've got you all added.

scrappinmom--photo mats in group 3 is already taken. I put you down for photo frames, so it would be something similar. If you don't want to do that, let me know, and I'll take it off. I like the JoJo's Circus idea!

Queenie
03-20-2006, 05:16 PM
Thanks for that! I'll PM you with how me and the other swap organisers are dealing with the UK postage issue tomorrow.

Two very quick questions: One, how big are the squares meant to be? I'm thinking about 1 inch but I could be way off. Two, for the matted song lyric/poem - is a quote ok as I don't recall much singing or poetry reading taking part in Indiana Jones!! Got a great quote though.

The ones I made for the AK swap were 1.5" x 1.5" I don't know if this was right or wrong, but I think they were cute! :)

StitchIsOurHero
03-20-2006, 05:28 PM
1.5" x 1.5" sounds perfect to me for squares!

As far as the matted poem/song lyric goes, a quote is fine! I got a good laugh out of picturing the Indiana Jones guy breaking into song! :rotfl:

03-20-2006, 06:13 PM
Scrappinmom, do you want to coordinate the colors of your mats with my topper so they match. I'll PM you my idea

Hi! I'd like to join.
Can you put me down for group 3 - border (or whatever is left, let me know)and for matted lyric for Group 4 (if there's enough interest-if not you can scratch that)

Thanks!
Carmen

P.S. I will be out of town for the next few days, so if you don't hear from me, it's not that I backed out!!! I will probably only be able to check my email while I'm gone, but I'll try to check this too, in case. :)

I would sign up for Group 4, too, for photo mats. Theme: TBA.

StitchIsOurHero
03-21-2006, 01:59 PM
Ok, everyone! I am going to go ahead and put people in group 4. It seems like we have had quite a bit of interest! It's funny, though--I read another post somewhere where the person said swapping was "addictive". . .so very true! I am already hoping someone will do a character swap at some point!

I added everyone that has posted so far. Anyone want the library pocket in group 3? I would be willing to change it to another element, if someone wanted. That way, that group will be full! If you know of anyone who would like to sign up for group 4, send them on over! :Pinkbounc

KatDisney
03-21-2006, 02:15 PM
Put me down for photo frames in group 4 please :) Im about done with group 3's.. so I need another project. Im in full swing scrappin mode.

Just wanted to ask everyone. . .I am thinking of doing "Chicken Little" for my theme in group three (four squares). We met Chicken Little & Abby Mallard at the Magic of Disney Animation Studio at MGM. Would you use those or would just plain Mickey-oriented MGM stuff work better??

bigsis1970--I've got you added! The Tower of Terror theme sounds great.

When I was telling DH about the MGM swap the other day (MGM is his favorite park), I told him how people were choosing different rides/attractions, etc., as their theme (he didn't understand how a swap worked). He said, "Hmm. .if someone chooses ToT, you will have to ride it so we have lots of pictures to use." How wrong he is! :rotfl:

Anyone want the shaker box in group 4 so we can fill it? Anyone? Bueller?? Bueller?? :teeth:

ROFL! I love that movie!! I had a professor that was about as exciting as that teacher! It always seemed like class went on for years. :rotfl:

This is my first swap, so my DH doesnt have any idea what I am up to either! But he listens to my ideas and hugs me, then he tells me " I have no idea what you are saying, but you seem to be pretty talented and I know whatever you do will turn out wonderful!" :hug: ( and he never asks me what I spend on my new hobby! ) Isnt he great?!?!

I just realised I have all of 8 pics from MGM last year and they are all on the same thing (Scott's dad got picked to be on the backlot tour, he was the tank mechanic who gets the several hundred gallons of water poured over him - great pics!) Gonna have to save all this stuff and be sure to take some good ones next year!!

Currently trying to think what 4 symbols I can do for Indiana, think I'm sorted!

Hi ladies! I hope your MGM swapping stuff is going well! If you get it done early and want to send it, you can pm me and I will send you my address. If everyone's done early, I'll send it out early. If not, that's ok, too! :teeth: I'm pretty workable either way, as long as it's here by June 24th. :thumbsup2

If you have not sent me your email information, DIS name, & real name, would you please email it to me at natazu@gmail.com? Thanks a bunch! You all are awesome! I can't wait to see all of the great MGM stuff! :cheer2:
