Wanted Angels and Please See New Posted Rules and Contest!

Hello all swappers. I hope you are all having a wonderful summer? I sure am! I just wanted to let you know that I have posted the new rules for the upcoming swapping in the fall. Please go to the "Rules" link to your right and read them and then email me if you have any questions or concerns and also that you have read them and agree. The newest one is the rule to try and make sure that we all get our packages. If you fail to mail your package by the 5th of the following month of any swap an angel will send a package in your place. Then if you can mail a package you will need to contact DaBookLady and get the angel's address as your package will then be mailed to the angel. I want to make sure that all swappers get a package and that we are fair and have fun here!

I will be also holding monthly contests this fall. These may be an actual contest or they my be where I pull names out of a hat for a winner who will be sent a prize. I suggest that everyone get their Amazon "Wish Lists" together and post them on their blogs or on this blog with their BABEs "Wish Lists" so that all partners and DaBookLady knows what your interests are. You could get that book that you have been really wanting as a prize.

This brings us to another need....I need angels!!! Please if you can be an angel email me and I will add you to our "Angels" list. You will only be called upon to send a package if one of our swappers does not get her BABE swap. You will only be required to send a book and bookmark. You can of course send more, however if not a book and bookmark is fine. I am hope we won't need any angels this fall but life happens and as such our angels are sometimes called upon.

Thank you all for swapping here at DaBookLady's BABE's Swaps and have a happy summer and stay safe and cool!

Michelle Gets her May BABE

Connie--you really shouldn't have, I don't know which book to start on first. Of course I love Steven King and James Patterson. 2 in one package. The dolphin bookmark is gorgeous. Wine stem charms for my wine glasses and yes I do love wine. Needlepoint glass case to work, a beautiful sun catcher cross, note cards that are so cute, bath fizz(vanilla), post it's which we can never have enough of in my initial, and the neatest silicone cake pan, I must confess you will have to tell me how to use it. You sent such a wonderful and thoughtful swap. Can't think of enough words. YEAH YEAH, Michelle

Michelle Gets her April BABE!

Thanks so much to the "Angel" who sent my April swap, it was so nice of her. I am in the process of reading the book right now. The crochet picture frame is so nice, I have yet to taste the teas but I am sure they are great. The bookmark is marking my place but is so cool, with my name on it and cool looking shades. Thanks so much to the "Angel". You are greatly appreciated.
