    Hi Ladies
    I am putting out an idea and want to see if anyone would be interested in this. I got this idea from another board that we traded handmade greeting cards.
    Ok.....first it is a year commitment so please be aware of that.
    I would like to do a birthday "gifter" swap. Everyone interested would send me their address and your birthday. Then each month I would gather all the people celebrating their birthdays during the month and send out a message with their name and address. all you would do is sending that person (or people) a pack of 50 unique 2.5 candy squares.
    I think it best to keep it in the US only for postage sake and have the limit to 30 swappers.
    I know when I did this and received handmade cards it was so much fun.....a great birthday month!

    Our first month to send packages will be March so we have time to get our packages ready.

    so if you are interested please PM me your name address and birthday.

    Barb
    If I get people to sign up for this we will start a new thread so we don't get confused with Sheri's yummy candy swap!

    Since Sheri has me addicted to 2.5 inch squares, I would consider the birthday swap.

    It's funny how many patterns you suddenly see for 2.5 inch squares when you are thinking about them. I need approximately a zillion squares to do all of the ones I've found that I like!

    I have found quite a few patterns that work with the 2.5 squares. I found some on Pinterest too

    I signed up for the birthday swap, too, but I hope it will not mean we are not going to keep swapping over here at least once in awhile.

    If we stop swapping here, I just might have a nervous breakdown!

    Speaking of which...no pressure SheriR...

    I received cotton candy from echoemb, quiltinghere and Yosamitesa!!! AND Quiltingdragon.

    Just waiting on two more candy shipments!!! We will end up with 32 swappers!!

    Ladies, I'm sooo excited. I spent lastnight bagging your Valentine's surprise. YUMMY fun!!

    I'll post my next swap as soon as I get a handle on the exact dates. But I'm thinking spring and Mother's Day and our regular Batik twist with a secondary twist of Neutrals for those not fans of Batiks.
