Countries of Epcot Swap sign up sheet 6 left

DisBoard Swap

You may use ANY color Bazzill paper you want that goes with the country
you picked (just let me know what you used so I can list them)

You may accent with patteren paper but don't over do it.

You must have something that represents the country in the kit other than the topper. EXAMPLES: If you are doing France you can use the Effiel Tower, Italy you can use Leaning Tower of Pisa, America you can use Uncle Sam. Those are examples: You may add ANYTHING that represents the country. I just don't want the topper to say France and that is it. I want to incorporate something else besides the topper to show what the kit was about. Think of it this way, if you didn't have the topper how would you know it was a France layout or an Italy layout.

Please read the Nitty Gritty part of the post/email. It will tell you everything you need to know.

C. If you are in all or more than 2 of the groups, The USPS has a Priority Mail Flat Rate Box; Any weight, any state, for $8.05. This box is large enough to get all your items back to you safely and quickly. It also takes the guesswork out of shipping rate.

I give up

I tried I really did. But I decided not to host this epcot swap. When you can trust me more I will. I'm sorry to those who WANTED 2 do this swap. I promise I will post it again (soon), if you want me to keep you on the list for those spots I will do that for you this way you have your spots already for when I post.
At this moment I can't do it, I just can't take anymore.

If anyone will like to know why please feel free to email me I will gladly explain.

Again I'm sorry.

PS. Don't get me wrong I understand why some of you don't trust me but I was hurt with what I found in my mailbox.

Thanks to those who tried to except me and to those who talked things out with me and just didn't shut me down all together.

Wow all I can say I am shocked someone would send you a nasty pm or email. If it is a PM you can let the web masters know because that is not tolerated at all.
It is a shame things went down hill and I do take some of the blame for questioning why a swap was being held but no one knew who the people were. (not the host) But it worked it self out and people who wanted to swap with you on here cont.
I will also speak my mind out in the public forum. Can't ever imagine a time I would have to do it behind doors....

It wasn't a nasty PM. But if I did get a nasty pm I would never run and tell teacher. I figure if adults can't communicate with each other as adults there's always the ignore button lOL

I'm just getting so tired of defending myself. It seems everytime something is put to bed another thing rises up. So I'm just giving up.
I also don't like people impling things about me (that is why I posted my emails) and lying about things I said. I DON'T lie. I might not say the right things at times or might not say what people want to hear but I don't lie. I will defend myself and everything I ever said.

thanks for your comments but I'm actually thinking about just finishing the APril swap with the 2 members that signed up and then leave.
