Post Christmas Destash Swap
**SIGN UP'S ARE NOW CLOSED**
Destash is when you clear out those odds and ends of things that almost made it onto a project. If you're anything like me you'll have spent the last couple of months crafting away for Christmas gifts, which means lots of leftover crafting supplies from your recent projects. So I thought it could be good to do a destash swap to start the new year!
You can send things like buttons, yarn, fabric remnants, beads, ribbons, scrapbooking paper, embellishments, stamps, stationary, boxes, glitter, glues etc.
*You have to have completed a Newbie vs Vet Swap
*All items should be in new or very good condition so that whoever you swap with can use them. No dirty or used items.
* You decide how much stash you want to send but it should be at least a 6x9inch envelopes worth.
*Absolutely NO CHRISTMAS THEMED ITEMS! -Your partner wont be able to use them all year!
* When signing up, please note what you would prefer to (or not to) receive in your half of the swap.
Sign Up by 13th January
And send out it by the 31st Jan

International shipping: Sure.
Preferences: I like decorative papers, gift wrapping stuffs (colorful curling ribbon, all-season wrapping paper, etc) and felt. I don't need fabric, buttons, glitter, or sewing stuff because I have a lot. I do like St. Valentine's Day themed stuff since it's my favorite holiday and I'm going to be going all out with it this year. Anything plushie-related would be great.
I have some fabrics, colored papers, and beads and buttons to swap.
Yay! I could definitely use a de-stashing

Name: Libby w
International Shipping OK? Yup
Preferences: I'm starting to smash book so I'm looking for any kind of papers or scrapbooking materials, including origami papers. I would love cool magazines or magazine pages from non-uk publications, or dictionary pages. I can also always use fabric, sewing notions and jewelry making stuff. I'd also love to trade crochet or sewing patterns.
To swap I have fabric paints, fimo (this is heavy so we might have to negoiate envelope size on this one), fabric, stickers, letter writing paper (I realised over xmas I have loads of this), jewelry making stuff, including loads of seed beads. I also have spare crochet hooks. I probably have a bit of everything really, I'm a a bit of a crafty hoarder!
Name: Mary ;)
International Shipping OK?: of course! But I've been having some money issues lately, so I'd like to keep it within the EU if possibile.
Preferences: scrapbooking is always a great favourite. Hama beads come close second. Also jewellery-making stuff - you never have enough! - and buttons, ribbons, embellishments, stamps... a little bit of everything is fine I'd say.
I can swap paper crafts (origami papers, magazine papers, templates), stickers, fabric (I have too much!), yarn, thread and jewellery-making stuff.
Still a while to sign up- I hope we get a few more ^_^
I really want to sign up, because I know I'll need to downsize my stash for my new smaller house, buuuuut I'm not sure when my things will be here. They will be delivered to the new house between the 15th and 30th of January. So if the hostess & my partner don't mind that it might be a week behind (if it arrives late in the month), I'll sign up for this one
