    Agust Secret Pals - sign-ups through midnight July 31 - Come join the fun!

    This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can
    choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner each month, and the person you send to will may be different than the person you receive from.
    Failure to send your package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps.
    Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation. Have fun and be creative!

    After receiving your Secret Pal’s details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $15.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. (This does not include shipping) Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items.
    You will need to send me (hav4boys) a PM when mailing and receiving.
    This way I can keep my records straight.
    Also send a PM to your SP thanking them and leave feedback.

    Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

    Packages need to be mailed out by August 17th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by August 10th Firm.
    If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not Sign Up.

    For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift' on the Customs Declaration (there's a box you can check). Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace). The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

    Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    Please fill out the questionnaire below and Private Message me your info by midnight July 31 to join the swap.

    What do you want the most and what don’t you want?
    Tell your SP something about yourself to make it easier for them to purchase for you.(Please fill this section out, it helps your SP buy for you.)

    Can you mail international?
    Email address:
    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close July 31 at midnight PST and names will be sent out no later than August 2
    nd
    .

    If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

    Have fun and be creative!

    I would like to sign up but have a question. The $15 limit. If I have a new spool of Aurifil ($12) in my stash and a layer cake ($39) I would like to send, I can because it was in my stash?
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Yes, you can. I think the $15 is a minimum for a new item(s). I think no one will complain if you send more.

    Oh my, nothing like seeing a spelling error in the title.

    That pretty much sums up my month. SMH. I have caught up on the emails. If I did not reply, please let me know.

    I am feeling much better. Physical therapy for the shoulder but I have use of my arm back.

    Here's to a better August.

    I want to share with you all an idea I had for my birthday. I will be 55 this month, we moved last Oct into a house that has a huge backyard. Therefore we have lots of blank empty picket fence space available. So, for my birthday I have asked my family members (mom & dad, brother and SIL, cousins and our daughters) to paint a 2X2 piece of treated plywood (that I have already painted white in exterior paint), with a barn yard quilt pattern, of their choice.

    I gave them the plywood and the assorted outdoor paints and a link to Pinterest to search out ideas of their own. I can't wait to get them back from them and see what they did! My 94 year old Grandmother even got in on the idea, she too loved to quilt, in fact she taught me to quilt. She loves flowers so I chose a Grandmother flower garden to paint. But to make it easier for her, I purchased pre cut hexagons shapes and let her help me paint them in different colors. She was VERY adamant about the center having to be yellow. So each of the hexagon flowers will have yellow centers. I am most thrilled that she and I painted these together.

    If ever I can figure out how to post pictures I will post them of the quilt blocks once I get them back.

    Just thought i'd share this with you all.

    All the secret pals are out. Have fun.

    Clue for my secret pal: In your city, the average commute time is 26 minutes and the median house value is $456,000. There are 21 public schools in your city.
