Winter Miniature Swap!

The premise: To make or buy 15 "Winter Holiday" Faerie Garden items to swap.
Idea's and updates about this swap will be post here on this blog and on our  Charms and Faerie Gardens FB group.

See current participant list here. 

Everyone participating will receive a Christmas tree for their mini (indoor or outdoor) garden from me.
Here are some ideas of Winter Holiday Faerie Gardens.

All swap items MUST be postmarked no later than November 1st, 2014. 
4 months should give you enough time to make or order your swap pieces!
I have a 3-strikes and you are out rule. 
 If you are late with your package too many times, you will not be included in future swaps.
I also require a email address to keep swap participants updated by a group mail. If you sign up but never check in as requested, you'll removed from the swap.
Must include money for return shipping, check, cash, or by pay pal. .....$13 for the U.S. Priority Mail, or I will bill you via pay pal before shipping.
Please no pre-paid postage.
(International will have to be discussed).
I will be using priority mailing for all packages and will send Tracking #'s.

 What to include with your Miniatures
  •  Please individually wrap or place your miniatures in small zip lock bags  or ATC bags along with your name and contact info. 
  • Please design a ATC  to go along with the theme of the swap.
 ATC's are  2.5"x3.5" or 64x89mm. 
ATC's usually are made of a sturdy chipboard backing to ensure safe mailing. I like to recycle cereal and cracker boxes for ATC bases. In the past I used to score and cut each card on my paper trimmer. I went through quite a bit of blades this way! But then I discovered this die by sizzix. It's a life saver if you plan to make a lot of cards. I have also made my ATC's with painted vinyl, soda cans, fabric, .....
Craft stores carry a line of Trading card sleeves, envelopes and baggies meant to keep them safe till swapped.
Thanks for coming by, Hope you can join!
Please email me your name and mailing address to participate.
