This swap is kinda similar to Birthday Swap... reveal on this post: http://www.beadingdaily.com/forums/t/8830.aspx
Lody, shall we post cetain preferences like color, etc in our bios? Cause I cannot eat sweets of any kind, and would just want my mark to know about it. Just in case :)
Good morning Yeli,
Yes, please update your profile for color preference (should you have any), a wishlist... and mention that you're not into sweets as well. I will also remind your mark about it.
I'm still in Lody. :)

I'm still in also. It will give me something to think about and ponder for a few weeks while I am getting all my sewing done for the craft show.
Have a great day!
I signed up but my name is not on your list Lody.
I'm still in.

Oh... just in case. I am still in! :)
Thanks ladies! Added you in the list Christina.:)
you forgot me ????
I signed up for both your precent swaps like months ago
I would like to join in if possible.
My craft life lately is in chaos, that's why I had to open a new thread for this swap... LOL Sorry about that! You're in my master list (in my file) Inca.:)
Thanks for joining Karen... added you in the list too! Can you please email you address Karen? Thanks.
Ok i've seen this swap mentioned in passing several times so when i saw this thread title i thought maybe i'd go sign up, but then i went over to the linked thread to read the rules and was totally blown away with the posts rule. I know a lot of us do in fact post most days of the week, but many of us who have been dubbed 'regulars' don't always get here that often. I myself don't frequent here nearly as much as i did b4 i got a job and all, so i totally don't qualify by your guidlines, which sorta hurts, tho i guess with my infrequency of doing much here the past several months it is deserved, but I mean you seriously want ppl to post 7 times a week if they don't have over 500 posts, wow. I'm sorry but i can't say i can do that. I'm online when i can be and i usually only post when i really want my voice to be heard, not to just have a short sentence saying i agree with the 100 ppl who posted b4 me. Quality over quanity perhaps. I have been in on most all of the swaps here b4 this one, for over a year now. (somehow i can nvr catch the necklace signups till im a day or few late :P) Yet i don't qualify for this one swap. But its ok, thats how you run this one, i respect that. Sorry for my rant, that post rule just really floored me is all, so i added my 2cents :P
I would like to join the KK swap too, but at the moment I am a little under 190 and I feel like I am posting all the time. I check BD daily sometimes multiple times and am still not there. I can understand why the rules are in place, but that means I can't join as well :(

No worries Shawna, I understand your rant... and sorry if I hurt your feelings with the rules provided. I know how real life goes - it's not as if we have all the time to get online or do crafts anytime we want.
If you want to join, you're more than welcome. I would be happy to add you. Karenra has less than 300 posts but she expressed her interest to join the swap so I added her.
I INTENTIONALLY made the rules more strict (again, sorry for that!) than other on-going swaps here due to reasons below.
"3. Members with less than 300 posts must post in the forum at least 7 times a week, not only in the Readers Showcase but also on Bead Chat, Non-Beading Discussion, etc. Unless there's an emergency of course... make sure to let the coordinator know what's going on! Members with 500+ posts are considered regulars and don't have to post as much."
Over-all, I just wanna have a beady related swap for pure fun, that comes with responsibility... and get creative! I have/had no intention to hurt anybody's feelings with the strict rules.
Lastly, I'll conclude that I won't repeat this Kris Kringle again (this will be my first and last) and I'll just finish the remaining year round of birthday swaps as well... I'm sure somebody could do better than me and can come up with MORE ACCEPTABLE RULES.
BTW everybody, is Mary ok? I sent her an email but never got a response. I hope everything's alright from your end Mary.
