    paw:Hi everyone!!

    Welcome to the Pet Swap!!:dogdance:paw::cat:

    Sign ups will begin on November 1st at 9 a.m. est. Sign ups will close on November 8th.
    The swap due date will be January 14th-to get us through the holidays.

    Newbies are welcome. If this is your first swap on this board, I will limit you to 3 groups.

    After sign ups, please pm me your name, mailing address, email address and phone number (I will only use these in an emergency). I will send the same information to you.

    Dates to remember:

    Nov 8th-verify groups and pm info
    Nov 30th-1st check in
    Dec 28th-2nd check in *Last call for angels
    Jan 7th-mail by date
    Jan 14th-due date

    If you forget a check in, I will pm you a reminder. After 48 hours with no response, I will request an angel for your spots. If you will be on vacation or out of town, please check in early.

    Packing & Mailing instructions:

    For the 2 letter groups, use jewelry or snack size bags. Label each of your bags as shown below. Put all of your letters for each group into 1 snack or jewelry size bag per person, then put all of those into 1 labeled quart size bag.

    For the single element groups and mini kit groups, use a bag large enough to seal your pieces inside. Label each of your bags as shown below. Place the bags for each group into a labeled gallon size bag.

    Label bags like this:

    DisneyBarlans
    Anne Barlan
    Group A

    Please include return postage & a mailing address label. If you want delivery confirmation, include $.75, as well as a completed DC slip.

    You may send to me by any method you choose before January 7. After this date, you must send by priority mail with delivery confirmation. I will return your goodies using flat rate boxes/envelopes from the USPS. The rates for these are: envelopes $5.15, small box $,5.35 med/standard box $11.35, large box $15.45. Please do not include the click-it/ship-it postage as it is only good on the day it is printed and from the location it is printed.

    If you have any questions on mailing or bagging and tagging, please ask. Your packages will be returned much quicker if everyone follows these guidelines.

    I'm in for dog groups. Any chance you'd consider adding mini page kits? I'd love to see title + 2 elements. I probably won't sign up for the 2 inch letter groups...I struggle to use them. I would also be game for completed layouts if you were up for that.

    Ok great!! What kind of puppy? :)

    Aww, we'll miss you Lisa!:sad:

    Great Traci!! Sure, I can add mini page kits. I tried with the completed layouts last year and nobody wanted to do them, but I can put a group out there and see what happens. ;)

    Ok great!!:)

    I'm in for a couple dog letters and probably 1 element. I wouldn't mind doing a mini kit as well. My poor dog hasn't gotten any love since my kids were born and I do have pics that need to get on pages!

    I would like to join too. Thinking about the dog element group and maybe two letter groups. Also interested in a mini kit element section.

    Thanks,

    Yay! It seems like there is interest after all in a mini kit group or two. I'm looking forward to sign ups. Are you going to update the first post to add more groups? Need to plan for sign ups, so I'll keep watching. Thanks for hostessing. I always look forward to this swap!

    Got you added! And sorry about the late change in groups...I didn't have a chance to look the whole swap over again and make changes until this morning before I opened it.

    I'm glad you're excited about the farm animals! I was thinking that would be a cute idea, and there are so many possibilities!:)
