Touching Base

I'd like to remind everyone that the mailing date for your swap packages is September 15, which is just around the corner now! I'd also like to thank everyone--apparently everyone is keeping in touch with their partners on a regular basis, as I've not had any complaints from anyone! Just a suggestion--when you send your kit, pay a little extra for delivery confirmation! It's so worth it to know your kit has arrived safely!

Lots of great ideas are swirling around the Ravelry forum--I can't wait to see everyone's kits! There is a forum there to post pictures of your goodies--please take the time to post your pics and acknowledge your partner's hard work and generosity!

Thanks to our wonderful Coven leader, Lizabeth Cullen, for posting the Trivia Challenge--pskline was the winner and her prize is in the mail!

I'll also be starting another forum, asking if you want us to do a New Moon swap. Please take a minute to let us know if you're interested!

I know you have probably all already seen this, but I wanted to spread the joy!! I also want to thank Hollye for getting the news to us on Ravelry! :)

Swap Partners Sent Out!

I know many of you couldn't stand to wait any longer, so I sent out all swap partner emails this morning. We ended up with 60 participants in the swap! Each Coven member was partnered with a member of the Pack, with the exception of two young ladies, both Coven members, who will be swapping with each other. We were also left with two people on the Coven waiting list, but neither one was willing to go into the Pack, so they'll have to catch us next time around, if we end up doing a New Moon swap.

So, please check your emails, and let me know if you did not receive your partner's questionnaire. Also, please make contact with your partner asap and let me know if there are any conflicts (allergies, animal issues, etc.).

Also, today I gave your team leaders their passwords for the Lingr chat rooms. Please feel free to schedule team meetings at your convenience. A couple of times during the swap, I'll schedule meetings for all of us to meet together. I'll make sure to pick a couple of different times in the hopes that everyone will be able to participate in at least one.

Have fun with this ladies! Make sure to check back here often, as we'll have lots of stuff to post during the swap!

Fave Vendors

Every so often, before the swap officially starts, I will be showcasing a vendor who offers Twilight-themed merchandise. Please allow me to begin with our very own Josephine LeRouge, aka KnottieKnitter. Take a look at her most awesome stitch markers, and other assorted items, in her Etsy shop. Josephine, your stitch markers are TO DIE for!

I will also list the vendors in the right sidebar for future reference. Thanks to everyone who is out there making Twilight-themed stuff for us to swap and treasure!

Move over Coven..

Do you prefer your men hot blooded and with a a pulse? Do you think glitter is overrated? Do you think that if someone is too good to be true, that that may be a sure sign of trouble or that they may be over 100 years old? Do you believe its better to protect the innocent than having them for a cocktail? if this is true, then do I have the group for you! Come join The Pack! We have eye candy.....

Attention one and all!

Do you like your men cold, dead and sparkling? Do you like to be frequently dazzled? Do you like fast cars and hot guys? Wish you man could read your mind? How about topaz and a cold rock hard body made of marble....

Well come join the Coven!
We have it all. I have displayed a mouth watering sample (no pun intended) just below, for your enjoyment. Hope to see you all in the swap soon...

Teams Are Filling Up!

Welcome to all! The teams are starting to fill nicely! Lots of trash talk happening over in the Ravelry forums--thanks to our two team leaders! Us HSKS swappers are used to it--please don't let it frighten you away if you're not! Tala and Lizabeth are famous for their witty repartee!

I'm really hoping to get equal teams so we can partner each Coven member with a Pack member--we'll see how it plays out and make a decision as we get closer to the closing sign-up date of July 1.

For now, keep checking back to see if anything new and exciting is happening. We cannot wait to get this party started!
