    You are invited to join a Valentine's Day Recipe SWAP. The theme, of course, is love. It's for appetizers, soups, entrees, drinks, desserts, or candy with a romantic flair.

    REQUIREMENTS: These must measure 8.5 x 5.5. Binders and protectors for this size can be found at Staples.
    Use cardstock and layer at least once. You can embellish any way you want, but be C-R-E-A-T-I-V-E!!!!!!!! Make 8 for each group. You will not get one back, so make an extra and keep it. These are due FEBRUARY 1st, 2007. NO LATER. I will be very strict about this. I will mail all swaps out Feb. 2nd, so people will have these in a timely fashion for what they were intended for.
    If you will need an angel, please request one. It's not fair to the rest of the group to leave them hanging.

    SENDING and RECEIVING: Put each recipe in a plastic bag for protection, then mail it to me. Do not put them in a ziplock that is smaller than the card because they leave marks on them (regular baggies are better for this). I will pm you my addy when you are ready to mail them out. However you send them, send an envelope and postage for the same amount for returning. Also include a piece of paper with your name, your DisBoard name, your recipe and your group#. You may sign up for more than one group if you wish.

    To join a group, post here. Put down your Dis-name and your recipe. (Please title your recipe. Ex: Lover's Shrimp Scampi or Hugs and Kisses Hot Chocolate) This will make it more fun and easier to decorate.

    Hey MickeyP, just popping in to see if you wanted me to put you on the 2007 Swap calendar. We started a calendar about a month ago to keep track of all our upcoming swaps. We're a little swap crazy around here but things have slowed down a bit over the holidays.

    Quick Question:
    What is the +1, is that a spot for an angel? Kind of a cool idea.
    Thanks for hanging out with us!!

    P.S. the swap calendar is stickied to the to of this forum. Here's a link.

    I have a question about the size...

    8 1/2 x 5 1/2? Are there books that will fit this? That 1/2" won't fit my 8x8...just curious. :teeth:

    I just went to Michael's last night because I have probably 30 recipes already made that size from different swaps, but your right, they won't fit 8X8 books. I'll change it to anything 8x8 or smaller.

    :blush: I was just wondering if there was a book that size...I didn't mean to change it. How will you scrap the ones you have?

    I'll sign up, I love recipes!

    Other recipe swaps we've done in the past were 6x6. It works out well if you have an even number per group because you just cut down the 12x12 sheets. Just an idea.

    HHMMM my cherry chocolate cookies might be a good one......Delish as soon as they come out of the oven and are still gooey.

    OK OK sign me up. Geez twist my arm why don't ya! LOL

    no garlic for lovers! I really don't want to kiss DH if he has garlic breath. Or is it just called lasagna but has other stuff in it.
    You'll have to excuse me, I'm having a Nancy moment. LOL

    There is, because I saw one on clearance 2 months ago. Of course I'm kicking myself for it. They are very hard to come by.

    You know, I have seen "8 1/2 x 8 1/2" books, and I think it was within the last couple of weeks at Hobby Lobby. Can't remember the brand, but it was a major brand. I will keep my eye out, but so you can check them out for your other recipes, MickeyP, and then will post. I need to stop there this week anyway, maybe today.

    I think "8 x"8 or "6 x6" sounds easier for most people though, for this swap.
