Swaps are invitation only. If you are a newbie and want to join our group, please contact me. My email can be found on my blogger profile at my regular blog yarnigras! Or leave a comment here.

If you have swapped here before but were not invited to a swap, please contact me as I may have lost your email addy.


1. My swaps are meant to be a creative outlet and challenge but materials and shipping can add up so please budget $10- $20 per swap.

2. If a newbie wants join, he/she must be invited by a group member. The person who referred the newbie will be responsible for her during their first round.

3. Please don't cut corners. If you are too busy to be creative, don't swap this round.

4. Communication is key.

5. Please wrap your items so everything arrives clean & safe.

Handmade Zombie Doll Swap is CLOSED!


                     ZOMBIES IN THE NURSERY!

That's right!  Zombies are invading the nursery!!!!!

What we are swapping:
*1 HANDMADE zombie doll based on your partner's favorite nursery rhyme.  The doll must be at least 8 inches in length and completely handmade. 
*3 (minimum) tuck ins.  These tuck ins should be chosen from your partner's info.  They can be newly purchased, thrifted, re-gifted or handmade.  Use good judgement.
*1 altered nursery rhyme (example follows) to go with the zombie doll.
"Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water, they caught the plaque and devoured Prague and all of Europe after!"
The package needs to be worth/valued at $20.00 before shipping.  As always, my swaps are meant to challenge your creativity, not bust your budget. If you can handcraft everything, I encourage it!  
Shipping has gotten outrageously expensive so this is a USA only swap.  
The join by date is April 26th.  I will email your partner info during the next week.

Ship date is May 17th.  Please wrap your items up nicely and ship on time.  If you are going to be late, contact me so I know what is going on.  
Please use delivery confirmation or priority mail so you can track your packages.  If your package is lost or stolen, it is your responsibility to send a replacement package.  It is only fair to do so.

Before you register, please take a moment to read "The 411 About  YSS" at the top of the blog. Space is limited.  I'll email all participants before the swap for confirmation.  Please reply and confirm to that email.  
 If you are a newbie, you must have a referral to join us.  If you don't know anyone who can refer you but still want to join, there is a one time fee of $15.00 to join us. 

To register:
Email me at valpowery(at)yahoo(dot)com with the following information:

Full name and street address

A short list of things that will help your partner create a wonderful swap package for you:  Include hobbies, stash stuff you love, colors you like, things you collect and anything you really dislike so that doesn't wind up in your box!

Don't forget to grab the swap badge and post it on your blog!!!!
