okay, what the what is a gift swap/trade?? Well with all of our AMAZING mama's here~ we have a lot of different things to offer. This economy is hard on everyones wallet, and an easy way to find a great gift is to swap or trade gifts!

Okay so here it goes: in this post (the 'swap main post') I want everyone who has something to offer~ please post what it is! A nice description, even photo's. . . . let us know what you make or do. I will take from here and make a neat, organized post with all there is to offer.

Here is a link to last years Swap Post just to give an idea of what the heck I'm talking about.

  I'm trying to keep things simple for myself this year!  (yeah right LOL)  So I will be offering 4 differnt items with a limit of 2 swaps on each item. 

 If you offer a swap that I don't accept please don't be offended! We, like everyone else, are very tight on funds so I will be doing my best to swap only for items we can use or give as gifts. On the other hand if you have something we can use I'll be happy to swap mutliple items.  :-)

 On to the fun stuff !!!

1) Set of 3 Doll Diapers --  I have 2 sizes so if you measure the dolls waist I will send the proper size! I will try to work with any color preferences, but I make these mainly from my real diaper making scraps so they are somewhat limited.

2) Stuffed Dinos -- these are great for little ones that chew on stuff! totally machine washable. Made form either cotton print or poly fleece with poly satin ribbon and stuffed with polyfill. (if you have more than 1 child that would like these I can make a set if you trade more items)

3) Fleece-In-One or Pocket diapers -- 1-2 diapers depending on what you are offering, your choice of AIO or Pocket style made from fleece.  First pick w/ dino are pockets, second pic are AIO style. Sizes S, M, L.

4) Fleece training pants (size 2-3t) or Big Kid Overnight Pants (size 4-6).  These are  a pocket style with 2 snap settings on at the sides to adjust fit and make washing / stuffing easier.

Kids in the pics modeling are both very tall for thier ages. A nearly 6 year old 55 pounder that wears size 6-8 boys clothes modeling the size 4-6 Overnight Pants on the larger snap setting. A 2 year old 35 pounder that wears size 3t modeling the Training Pants on the smaller size snaps.

I am interested in joining, but I have a few questions........Is there a deadline for sign-ups?  Do items need to be a certain value or are swaps determined by each moma?  Like higher value item for two smaller value items.  Thanks!!

I did a lot of my Christmas shopping last year through trades as well. It was soooo much fun! I'm In....I've got mineral makeup galore to offer up as trades. You can check out my home page or website at www.mineralfacefx.com The only thing that I really can't use are baby items. Other than that...I'm open to most anything else!!!!

Happy Holidays Girls!!!!
