1. Sign-up through the 10th of the month then the swap closes for the month.
2. All mug rug packages are to be mailed to me by the end of the on month with the means to mail it back out. This means that if you mail via envelope send an additional envelope with postage paid.
3. Mug Rugs will be sent back out to everyone on the first of the month. NO EXCEPTIONS!! If your mat has not been received in time to go out on the 1st it will be sent back
APRIL THEME NOTES------- May Flowers--Spring has sprung (maybe) and the April showers are sending up all the wonderful May Flowers! This is a time of May baskets and spring flowers and a flurry of garden activity. The wild flowers are covering all the wild areas with bright spring colors. Anything that will fit with the flowering season will work.
To sign-up post a comment to this discussion and send me a friend request if I am not on your friends list.
Once you are signed up I will message you my address after the swap sign up ends. It is a good idea not to post your address in the discussion because anyone, even those not in the swap can see it.
If for any reason you are unable to fulfill your obligation after you are signed up please notify me immediately so I can remove you from the list.
