This was also the first swap in which we incorporated crafts. Although the food swapables were still the main focus, we had some neat crafty items such as wine bottle tiki torches, crocheted apple cozies, homemade modge podge, hair jewels, homemade soap and strands of paper cranes.

|April's "Seasons of Swapping"|
We even had mini swappers and a 4-legged visitor!
I know we had a lot of new swappers this past time. And maybe it's my fault for not doing a better job of explaining how the swap works, BUT I need everyone to abide by the 1-for-1 rule. This saves everyone a lot of hassle and awkward moments. Remember this - if you write your name down for an item, it means you are comfortable taking that one item (given it's size and portion) for your one item. There shouldn't be any signing up for and then negotiating later. Thank you :)
The next event will be spaced out a little more. I have a feeling our events were too frequent for some to attend every one. I'm looking at the first weekend in December. There's a poll on Facebook to vote for the day/time. Head over there and let me know what works best for you!
