My Sept. Partner Jayne

I can't speak any other languages well so I will just have to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, in English. I must have been a good girl at least part of this year to get such a great package. Jayne you have a knack for going beyond the usual. Jayne sent me 2 books I requested. One I have just started reading and really am enjoying. I don't know if you can see it very well in the picture but she sent the most beautiful soap, it looks like a chuck of real jade, so pretty and unusual and smells heavenly. Another little book (I love those) on Family Traditions. A pretty pink rose, kitty cat cell phone charm, book mark, a beautiful silver rearview mirror dolphin charm (love those), pretty note cards, travel kleenex (you never have enough of those). Some hot Dentyne gum and I do mean hot!!!!!. The sweetest heart ornament it opens and says "True Friends". And of course to mark my passage in reading a great bookmark. Hope I didn't forget anything. Looks like I will have to update my Christmas list. Thank you again for starting of the new fall swap season. Looks like it will be a great one.
Thanks again,

New Format to the Sept Swap

Hello fellow swappers...
Right now I am very disappointed in the response and follow up in this swap. So I have decided that we will change the way we swap here....our list has dwindled down to almost nothing. The new way should be helpful to secure those that swap here that they will receive a package.

The new format for Sept. will be as follows:

  • Each month you will follow the monthly theme
  • You choose your partner from the list
  • You will comment here who you wish to swap with
  • Email that person and ask them if they want to swap
  • DaBookLady will then post partners
  • If they agree you will email DabookLady who you are swapping with
  • The partners will be posted on the blog
  • Then you two will exchange addresses
  • The swap will be the same as before as far as time limits
  • You will mail your package to that partner by the end of that month
  • You will post your thank you and photo on the blog
  • You will always let the hostess, DaBookLady, know when there is a problem
  • Remember this swap is for fun!

Our swappers wanting to participate are:

  1. Debb swaps with Patty
  2. Kristie swaps with Gina
  3. Michelle swaps with Jayne
  4. Jayne swaps with Michelle
  5. Jill P swaps with Patricia Anne
  6. Gina swaps with Kristie
  7. Becky swaps with Reina
  8. Reina swaps with Becky
  9. Patricia Anne swaps with Jill and Debb


PS: Don't forget to let me know who you ar swapping with and you can also swap with more than one person if you choose to.

2 New Swappers for the Sept Swap

Welcome to Reina D and Patricia Anne

A little about Reina: "She LOVES to read.
She has read the majority of her favorite authors, and is finding new authors by default. She loves dean koontz and has read the majority of his books. the same goes for stephen king. She hasn't read many of the new books, last 3 years or so. the only kind of books she just really hasn't gotten "in to" are romance novels, the bodice rippers. her mom loaned her a book by judith krantz, and she was in a state of depression for a week. other than scrapbooking she has yet to find a craft that she doesn't adore, and maybe if she tried harder at scrapbooking she would like it better. she has 2 beautiful little girls. one is 2 1/2 and the other will be 9 in november. Her hubby and her will celebrate 10 years of wedded bliss in december."

A little about Patricia Anne: "She is 25 years old. has been married for three years. She has a stepson who is 9 years old along with her own 2 year old little boy, and a three month old set of twin girls. She teaches Theatre Arts to 7-12 graders. she has participated in one apron swap and has joined the crochet swapblog. She loves arts and crafts things, but regrettably she is just now learning to sew, crochet, etc... she has been working on crocheting for awhile now, but she hates everything she has done so she always unravel my work. She LOVES to read, scrap book, (try to) draw, (try to) cook, make lanyards, and work on latch hooks. She is also a huge fan of learning so anything anyone can teach her in the crafts area would be wonderful."

Other stuff about me... I live in county with my husband and son. I work in an office during the week so on the weekends I like to relax with either reading, watching movies, crafting or just pampering myself! I enjoy trying new crafts and activities. I'm willing to try new things. Some of my favorite new things to try are crafts, food and fitness things. Since I live in a rural area, there aren't many crafting groups so I've learned to use the internet for my crafting fix. I enjoy listening to books on CD while I'm comuting back and forth from work everyday.
