THEME: Our theme this time will be SPOOKTACULAR AUTUMN . Let your creativity run wild w/ the scents, shapes & colors of the season!
SIGN UPS: I am taking sign-ups starting now through Friday Aug 28, 2009!
DUE DATE: Boxes will be due Friday Sept 25th, & will be re-boxed & shipped back out ASAP! That gives you 4 weeks from the time signups close to get your items to me. If your item/soap needs additional cure time, NO PROBLEM! Just make sure your label reads "Do not use before ...date...".
ITEMS: You can send and handmade (by you) item you would like, bath/body/aromatherapy/candle/M&P soap/CP soap/cards/jewelry/etc Your swap item should carry a retail value of $4.00-$8.00. You may send 1 full size item or 2-3 smaller sized items. Please make sure your items are labeled & presented like you would have them if you were selling them or giving them as gifts. Please make sure you items are well protected in transit & wont leak. I like to individually ziplock bag each of my items & roll them in either tissue or bubble wrap to protect them from the postmen. Make sure the items you send are all the same or similar, so when we all begin to chat about what we have received, we have the same/similar items for comparison. Recipes are always welcomed & encouraged, BTW- where did you get that great scent?
SHIPPING: Return shipping will probably be in the flat rate priority boxes. I don't care how you get it to me, but I will most likely use the flat rate priority boxes to return the items to you. Return shipping will be $10.00.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International swapping is welcomed.... however... I will not be responsible for items that get caught in customs or do not make it to an across the border destination. I have esp been having problems w/ Canadian shipping this year.
DROP OUTS: Drop outs are frowned upon, but if there are any drop outs or no shows, that extra item you send in will be donated to a woman's shelter or other charity of the hostesses choice.
I'm really excited about this swap and I hope that everyone else is too! This is a great way to get acquainted and an even better way for newbies to get their feet wet!
