Important information regarding the birth bead swap. As of right now there are 24 participants. So plan on purchasing 24 beads. Please PM me when you are ready to send your beads my way at that point I will give you my address. Please send your beads with a self addressed small manila envelope (a bubble one would probably be best.) Once I receive all the beads I will separate them into each person's envelope and mail them back to you. You will receive 24 unique beads. Deadline to get your beads mailed is MARCH 1st.

Remember if you have signed up and I do not receive beads from you, you will no longer be able to participate in future exchanges for a period of time. This is not to be mean but it is to keep things running smoothly and to make sure no one gets left out in future exchanges.

If you need to pull out of the exchange please let me know before the deadline for me to receive the beads! If you have any further questions please let me know! Thanks ladies.

Because the beads I ordered ended up being smaller than I anticipated (I really can I read descriptions, I promise!) and because I'm indecisive, I will probably be sending in several different ones for everyone. From my experience, 24 beads, unless there are some bigger ones, may not add up to make a very big necklace or bracelet (I have fat wrists =() if anyone wants to use their beads for something like that. So I figure a few extra beads can't hurt

Katie...seriously Michaels has a great selection...so does Joanns and HobbyLobby. If you have any local Sierras thats another. But I loved Michaels and Sierras selections the most as Im an avid beader. And you can probably order online from any of those. And even walmart has a small limited bead selection...careful on bead size though.....seed beads and such are too small. The best bracelet size beads are about the size of a pea. And with the amount of women in the group doing the bead exchange if everyone does one pea sized bead then we should have enough beads for bracelets or possibly anklets. Or we can do just a simple strand. (Average beaded necklaces take approximately 100 beads)
