Ready to do the BUNNY HOP

Are you over the hearts and ready to hop into Spring.   Several have said they were interested in a Bunny Swap.  I wanted to wait til Valentines was over.  I also wanted to wait til 521 Lake Street finalized what she was doing for her Easter Swap.  She is doing spoolies.  It's not to late to sign up for her swap.  I signed up.  I think it will be a challenge.
Oh, back to my swap.  I think everyone liked getting several hearts back in the mail.  Out of 14 packages sent back only one got lost.....sorry Carol, it had to be you.  But Carol got a replacement package in time for Valentines.  Okay here we go .
The rules will be similar. 
 Everyone will make five items.  If you want one for yourself, make one but keep it at home.  You will receive five items back in the mail.
I am using this sweet bunny for an example.  It was tucked into a heart from Cotton Pickin Fun.  It is tiny.  You can make a bunny, chicken, duck, , flower, anything Spring (non-religious) . Spring not Easter.  The size must be able to fit in the palm of your hand.  This bunny is quite smaller than that but it would work. 
 Do not put holes or ribbons on them like you would for ornaments........because your items will be made into a banner. 
 You can make your item out of paper, pom poms, felt, wool, material, anything somewhat light weight.  Not too heavy or it would weigh down the banner.  Probably not clay. 
 If you prefer to make your own banner just tell me and I will send you the ribbon to do so yourself. 
The mailing fee will stay at $5.  I will use a mailing box if items are fragile, if not a bubble mailing package like the last time.  Yes, I had a little money left over. 
 I do need for you to tag your items so that others know where they came from.  Please. 
 Please mail your cuties to me March 15th.  The earlier the better so I can return them to you.  This time you have to get them to me in time.
  The last day to sign up will be Feb. 28th.
  Not crafty......find someone that is and purchase their items, just not store made items. 
 Okay, sorry I have to do this.  Because my email reply is messed up please be a follower.  Communicate through my blog or by Facebook (Debby Messner)  Here is my address:
Debby Messner
158 Spruce Drive
Granville, Ohio 43023
Please sign up on this post.
Won't this be fun.
Looking forward to lots of you signing up.  If you would like to make 10 let me know.  Hopping you will sign up.    Two easter items, let's make this a spring swap.....then we can keep using it after Easter...,...mailing date extending til March 15.
Please include either your email address or your blog address.

Debby, I'd love to do this but haven't the time at this moment. But I sure love your little bunny. Can't wait to see all the bunnies, because the hearts sure were sweet. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo,Susie

RetroSandie said...

Hi Debby! I'm into bunnies and such, so this Bunny Hop should be fun! Please count me in!!! :)

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh what fun! I appreciate your kind words so much.
Someday I will do swaps again.

I'm waving my hand and my magical wand! I am in! I love the swaps you are having. I already know what I'm making!

Debby, I should have mentioned not to use the address for mailing on my business card because I no longer have my whimsical consignment store as a physical location. I am running up to Lynden today to pick up the hearts you sent. They arrived safe because my shop was in the upstairs of a restaurant but I couldn't get up there before Valentines Day. The restaurant called me and said a package arrived. Please use the address I send to you on my envelope! Thank you!!! Jacqueline

Laura said...

Hello :-) my head is blank at the moment, but l'll give it a think and get back before 28th if l get some ideas and want to sign up for the swap...sounds fun :-) Pam

Jane said...

Hi, Debby, I'd like to join the swap too! Glad to see that Easter eggs will be okay since I had fun making them for another swap once. But who knows what I'll end up making - haha! I was trying to measure my palm - does about 3 or 4 by 4 sound about right for size?
xoxo Jane

Jane said...

Oh, I see you've changed it to Spring so no Easter Eggs! Hmm, well, I'll think of something else.

Nan said...

I normally would love this but with my two students 3X a week I'm just too busy with sewing projects. If I should think up something I can add quickly I'll let you know.

Sounds like a fun swap, Debby! I am doing a Spring basket swap {with two partners for each person}, otherwise I'd join in.
