Just found this swap

Post by Maria on Mon Jun 21, 2010 1:48 am

Hi Girls,

Just wanted to show you this swap I found not sure if your interested but the signups are until the 28th of June and is limited to 30 people....

Here is the link
The idea of this swap is to take a small jar (7 ounces- give or take a little)
and fill it up with pretty (and usable! no destashing!) craft items like buttons, mini tags, flowers, brads, bits and baubles, ribbons, trims, stick pins, charms, you name it.
You will be put in a group of 3 swap participants and you will send out 2 jars and receive 2, as well.

Heard enough? Here's what you need to do:
1. Sign up for the swap by sending me an email Jessrodarte@verizon.net by June 28th or until we reach a maximum of 30 participants.
In your email, please include the following: your name, mailing address, email address, blog or Flickr address (you must have one of either to join), and a list of your likes/dislikes including favorite colors and color schemes (please be thorough! It's easier to to put a package together when there is an extensive list of likes).
2. The first step is to find 2 jars (maybe recycle a jelly jar, a pickle jar or a vintage jar?) Next you will decorate the jar a bit to make it pretty. You can paint on them, add rub-ons, rhinestones, flowers, ribbon, buttons, lace, etc.
3. Finally, fill up your jars with pretties, and...
4. Ship them off to your swap partners along with your name and contact information (by July 12th).
That's it! Easy, peasy, light, and breezy! Smile
Here are a few Flickr pics to get your creative juices flowin':

Hi Ngaire,

We probably will be at least for one of them as we live in the same country and she is partnering up international ladies together.....
Will check out your jars after dinner....
