        We need to get this back up and running. I can only hold just so many swaps with Me and Myself. They are just too picky and Myself stays in time out a lot!!

        HI Ladies. Hope all are getting better. Does any one want to host the next swap? I will but if any wants to, go for it!! The due date can be due as far as the 4th of Dec. If all swaps are in before that, great, they will get mailed early.

        1. Does anyone want to do a secret sister swap.
        2. Does anyone want to do a card sawp.
        3. Does anyone want to do a tag swap.
        4. Does anyone want to do ??? swap

        Or we can do one of the above and whatever suggestions of what ya'll come up with.

        Do we have enough to do a BINGO game. I have played this with just 4 people

        Do we have enough to do a Pay It Forward game.

        Do you have a game you would like to play.

        Think about it

        Marsha..You have seen some of my cards, you don't need to worry about it. Go online and google cards. you will find some of the most simple cards. The same with tags. My hands shake and a lot of my things may not be even or straight, so please join in and have fun. I really like talking to you. So please jump in and show us your projects.

        Hi Shirley!! We have had company here so I have been overwhelmed with work keeping things in order and pets in check. This is the first time in 6 years we have had company and it had to be a person myself and the dogs to NOT care for!! But soon he will leave and we can all feel like ourselves again Smile

        I may be interested in a swap but unsure what kind. I get into trouble with ones that are too specific as I have stuff to work with but cannot always find it when I need it...if anyone knows how that goes!! Plus not having the funds to just go but what I need. I don't know what the Pay it Forward game is. I don't get into the games much because I am not always sure when I will have computer time and sometimes I don't get the rules...just I am easily confused alot of the time. I know I sound like like a real freak, but at least I know my faults Roll Eyes

        So when it is known what kind of swap and when it will be due, then I can give a for sure yes or no to join. I only get paid once a month and HAVE to know enough ahead of time to have the $ set aside to mail.

        I hope you are doing Well Shirley! Has stuff mellowed out at your place so you can relax some? I will try to stop in here more often to see what is up!

        Hi, have been thinking about swaps and I am looking to do a tag swap or recipe swap~ 8 1/2 or smaller decorated recipe. This time of year cookies and candy are yummy but other types of recipes are good too. anyone want to swap recipes? Or individual recipe swap with me if there are not many takers, we would each pay our own shipping to each other on the individual.

        Maybe set it up, make a due date and see who shows up to join? I am unsure what to do to get people back here except if we are having a fun swap, how could other people not want to join. We just have to catch them while they are here...maybe put some bling out that always attracts scrappers Big Grin As long as there is at least a month before the due date I can handle it. It would be cool too if people said what the recipe was, so we don't have more than one doing the same recipe if it is a recipe swap. Just sayin; Wink I keep talking about the recipes because I love cooking and baking so much, but if others want a different swap that's alright too.

        Janet, are you gonna host the swap? If it is just me and you, we can do...5 each??. You can say what kind and set the due date as far out as you want.

        I would love to join in a swap.
        We just bought a new house and are in the process of gutting it, and at the same time we are painting and fixing up our current house so that we can get it on the market. I am going crazy! Most of my SB stuff is in storage, so I have been buying more stuff to scrap with. I don't have much to work with. I think a recipe swap would work well for me, if I can find my recipes!
        I keep checking the board, but there hasn't been any action, I was kind of afraid that it was dead, so it is really nice to see people posting again.


        May God Bless You Abundantly!

        Shirley,
        Do you mean that we could send in a page title or a recipe for a one pan meal etc? That is an interesting idea.

        Well Kathie, now that you mentioned it, I am not real sure what I did Confused

        I was trying to show that we could have just a reciepe swap or just a tag swap or just page title swap or just a card swap. I was trying to show how to list the groups. So why I listed it the way I did..who knows.

        BUT.. the way you read it does make for a interesting idea.

        Help us out ladies, want to it in a different way..step of the block, out of our comfont zone.
        Me, Myself and I are ready to go. Do with what you have, I am a simple scrapper, I dress up when the call to do so comes, but I like simple

        Shirley,
        I really like the idea of anything goes. My mind is already racing (not that it ever stops, especially at night!). Count me in whichever way it goes. I do not remember any swaps like this before.


        May God Bless You Abundantly!

        Holy Cow when You take charge you nearly knocked me down Shirley! LOL!! Just kidding, you didn't knock me down!
        I like the recipes tho so I personally would chose to do those instead of the tags, cards or page titles. Just my opinion tho, but when is the due date? I was hoping for at least a month to complete them once we know what we are doing. BUT if there was some of those other things too, I may be wanting to join those also(cards, tags) I am horrible at making up my mind about most things, it can be awful when I try Roll Eyes
        Also I would host if you don't want to, but don't want to take it away from anybody. I don't mind hosting either but am not on the board every day most of the time. We do have a snow watch this Saturday night tho, so if it starts snowing I may get more time to be on the computer!! (I know, I am not going to hold my breath on that one but it could happen)
