Okay, I know our due date of August 12th is some hazy Saturday in the far off future, but I wanted to get a progress thread started for our Disney Couples swap. I have everyone listed below, along with the groups you are in (please PM me if I have messed up totally!) The roadmap to the name list is…
I have received your address
I have received your package
I have mailed everything out to you :cool1:

And since I am afraid the sign-up thread will get lost in the shuffle somewhere, I also thought I would include the details on this first post so it will be easy to find if you need it.

1. Choose a Disney couple…or two…or three.
2. Select an element (see below). You will make 5 of each element.
3. PM me as soon as possible with your DIS name, name and address so I can pre-address the return envelopes.
4. Post your progress status on the Progress thread (here)!
5. Check the progress thread for your status. I will update it with approximate regularity.
6. Packing Instructions - use a Ziploc for each person and put the element for that person into their bag, with their DIS name and group number on the outside. You’ll have 5 bags for each group, so please put those in a single Ziploc bag and write your DIS name on the outside of that bag. Be sure to include your name and your DIS name in your envelope.
7. Mailing Instructions - Please use the Flat Rate Envelopes ($4.05) or the Flat Rate Box ($8.10) to mail your packages of goodies to me! Include $4.05 for envelope postage (or stamps if you don't want to send cash) to return your items or $8.10 for the box postage. On the outside of your box/envelope please include your DIS name and Swap name in the bottom corner!
8. PM me if you have problems, need to drop out, or if an emergency happens (we all know things happen beyond our control sometimes). Just let me know so I can make arrangements for an angel or other help.
9. There will only be 5 people per group with a total of 8 groups.
10. Most importantly HAVE FUN!!

Element Selection:
-1 Topper - 8 inches wide
-1 Border - vertical, 11 inches in length/width
-2 journaling boxes - double matted, embellished - with at least a 2x2 writing area
-4 Embellished squares - double matted

Great!!
Quick question.. in my brain-storming of ideas on paper today that I'll test this weekend... Do you want the couples together or can they be separated?
For instance.. I have Donald and Daisy.. and 2 photo mats... can I do each of them an individual specific mat that coordinate... or do you want them both .. or can I do a combo of all that...or am I just making life too difficult? :confused3
I have an idea for Donald/Daisy individually but color coordinated...and than I have an idea for Mickey/Minnie together.. will that work???

Sorry if I'm giving you a headache.. I've got it and want to share it with someone! ;)

I think a pair of coordinated elements would be fine. In fact, some of mine will probably be the same. As long as they look like they go together, they make a set, and that should work.

I rambled didn't I...I am very tired and I am going to bed...now...

Great!! Yes, they are a matching set and will hopefully work out the way I imagine on paper & in my mind!!!
Thanks for responding!!! off to work at school!

Wow, Nancy - have you got my back!!! We were taking DS to a "school's almost out" movie and just got in.

As an aside, would it help if the elements were posted on this thread? I will be glad to figure out a way to do that if y'all want me to.

Hey all, I just wanted you to know that I am leaving for the World soon. So, I won't necessarily be monitoring this thread for the next week or so. If you have any questions, I will catch them as soon as I can.

Have a great week!! :cool1:

I have had to print out everything I am in and I have the lists on my craft table.

You know, we all might be just a little bit insane!!! :crazy: But in a totally good way!

I have the wall in the basement that has the list tacked to them and than a calendar with the dates for my completion goals on it...and DH laughs because I then have a list on the fridge with the swap names, dates due and my goal date.. he is always anxious to see if I succeed.. So far.. so good! :banana:

At the house I just pcked up I have a coarkboard with them all clipped together and the next to be done on top. I then have a list in my purse of the swap with what I am making incase I see cool items while out shopping. LOL and then I have a list with due dates in my everyday bag so I can decide what I want to work on that evening.

I hope to have something equally as organized at the new place. LOL

I have post-its on one side of my computer with all my swap info. After this weekend I think I will be down to one post-it from three.

But it is so much fun!

07-03-2006, 01:03 PM
I failed in getting down to one post-it this weekend. I was going to go to the scrapbook store yesterday to get supplies, but they are CLOSED on Sundays! But they are open tomorrow, so by the end of the week I should be down to one. That will leave me with two swaps still open (rare character and holidys) and those aren't due for awhile, so I am contemplating actually trying to organize and print my photos, so when the packages start rolling in, I will be ready to actually scrap. What a novel concept. :)

KAMommy
07-12-2006, 07:03 AM
Hey everyone.

I just wanted to pop our thread up. I know there are several swaps due this month - I myself just finished those (eek).

I have two of my groups done for this one, and all the stuff for the rest. I REALLY lucked out when I found six sets of stickers at Joanns that had Cinderella and Prince Charming on them. I have seriously never found him on anything. Our Joanns only had two packages, but that was all I needed.

Have a great day!

PrincessNancy96
07-12-2006, 11:04 AM
I'm still plugging away.. I'm going to send both groups together..so you can just send them back all at once... So, I'll have mine out to you by the end of the month!

Thanks.

As hectic as back to school will be I'll need help!!! If not.. I might end up sending you an English book, Science or even one of my kids by accident! I've got everything organized for now...but you know how schools always seem to throw an extra "wrench" into the trenches when school resumes.. Heck, we just found out yesterday that the Varsity Football team has our first home game the day we return to school! Whew! Talk about throwing everything at you in one day!

Glad they made it. That's what happens when your husband is engrossed in the World Cup for a month! I'll say a benefit of these swaps is that I've been watching the movies for inspiration. I hadn't watched Lady & the Tramp in ages!

That's one thing I love about having kids. We restrict regular television a lot, so the kids watch a lot of Disney movies. I might not have watched them all recently, but I have listened to them many times. :rotfl2:

Woo Hoo! :banana:

I have this one done, and some of it actually looks good. ;) I am particularly proud of my Chicken Little/Abby Mallard stuff.

I started to wait on some of these because my Robo Craft will be here early next week. But I have a week from heck at work and know I won't have much time to learn and play. So I won't make everyone suffer through my learning curve! :rotfl2:

Off to finish the duos swap!!! If I can come up with some good ideas. :scratchin

I just need to adhere the journaling.. Yeah!!! Anyway, I don't sleep well w/ DH out of town...so I work!!!

Good morning all!

I am sending a few PM's this morning, but I have heard from almost everyone and I have received a bunch of stuff.

Nancy, your items are incredible - I am not worthy to swap with you! ;)

If I get everything in, I will actually start getting this one ready to mail this weekend.

BUT - if you want to send postage for ONE box instead of two, and you are in the Duos swap - just let me know and I will hold yours for the second date (make sure I have enought postage for a box though, because there is a lot of stuff!)

PrincessNancy96
08-07-2006, 08:43 AM
LOL! You are more than worthy to swap w/ me.. I'm just an average or okay... I'm my own worst critic.. ask my kids.. Is this good enough? How is this? Is this better? Let me know if you need more postage...

YodasMom
08-07-2006, 08:13 PM
I mailed mine earlier today. I also enclosed the swap elements for the Disney Duos swap as well.

Please mail both swaps together. I also included a note with the postage with that request as well.

Thanks so much for hosting, KAMommy!! It was a fun swap!! :goodvibes

Now.........on to the next one, and the next one, and.......!!

jennyL
08-08-2006, 05:18 AM
I mailed this with the Duos swap. I sent enough postage for both to be mailed seperatly but you can hold this one and mail them both together in one box. I've been getting so many swaps bak lately my DH is wondering when I get anything else done. LOL this would spread them out a bit.

KAMommy
08-08-2006, 07:50 AM
