May 6 Character Swap Progress Thread

Due date is May 6th.

1. Choose a character.
2. Choose 3 different items from the list below - I will list your character but will not list the items you are making - Everyone will be surprised with what they get.
3. PM me with your dis name, name and address - so I can pre-address the return envelopes.
4. Post your weekly status on the Progress thread - which will be posted after the slots are filled - like every friday (or which ever day of the week works best for you).
5. Check the progress thread for your status - it will be updated with ship info and received info.
6. Packing Instructions - use a ziploc for each person and put everything for that person into their bag; put all of your ziploc bags into a large ziploc bag - bre sure to include your name, your dis name and your address on your big bag; include $4.05 for postage (or stamps if you don't want to send cash) to return your items.
7. PM me if you have problems and need to drop out or if an emergency happens (we all know things happen beyond our control sometimes), let me know so we can make arrangements for an angel or other help if needed.
8. There will be 12 people per group - once a group fills up I will add another group - but there will not be more than 3 groups (I just don't think I can handle more than 36 package my first try at hosting).
9. HAVE FUN!! It isn't worth doing if you don't have fun.

Ok - here are the elements to choose from (if you have another idea for an element, let me know and I will add it).

I'll be going out later today to shop. This is going to be so much FUN!

update:
yeah, well, seems that the workshop that DH was going to be at for the WHOLE DAY turned into a 1/2 day...sooooo, when I went to Mike's I wasn't able to enjoy the shopping (cause he went too and kept asking if I was done yet... ), and so I have to go back again this week...sigh...

Such a hardship, shopping again....

I am going to get my stuff this weekend. (This is my first swap and I am already hooked).

I even bought a Sizzix last night, just to "help". My husband asked if I realized I was starting down a long path with a new obsession. I told him yes. I don't see the problem, do any of you?

Oh boy, you is in trouble now...See, once you get the sizzix, you start looking for reasons to use it...and that causes the need more dies for the sizzix, and well...you get the idea. I love mine , and it gives my xyron a work out too...

I have to say that I am very disappointed in the selection of Pooh stuff out there right now. I picked Pooh thinking that I would be able to have my pick of stickers and other stuff...YEAH RIGHT...nothin' that I want to put in my scrapbook ...and I went to 2 local scrap stores, Michael's, Joann's, AC Moore, and looked online. Very disappointed .... I think I have changed my elements at least 3 times trying to get some good ideas...

But I am happy to say I got my shopping done today (DH was at work ). I hope my ideas look as good on the paper as they do in my head...
