    rules stolen from shelley's monthly egg swap and edited to fit the situation..
    SSHHH!!!!!! don't tell shelley.......
    i put the edits in big just to see how funny i could make it while editing.. lol...

    This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.). The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose.
    The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out. We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past.
    The rules
    So big rule #1 If you have sweets you will probably only get sweets
    #2 You can NOT pick a certain sweet
    #3 All swappers must be signed up by December 10th
    #4 the sweets have to be in the mail on or before the 19th
    #6 Everyone will be required to send 12+ sweets (you're welcome to send more)
    #7 Please package the sweets carefully. Individually wrapped and secured so they have the best chance of surviving the trip.
    #8 Due to previous problems, only active members of the BYC community are eligible to participate at my discretion
    #9 If you fail to fulfill your obligations on this or any other swap, you will be unable to participate in future swaps
    #10 you must send the recipe for whatever you make with your BYC name
    #11 in future monthly SweetSwaps, you must give credit to the original BYC member if you use the recipe
    #12 recipes should only be traded by sending the sweets in the swap, this will keep it fun and keep it going
    (Shelley sent me these awsome homemade turles... oohh i want that recipe.. gotta wait and see if she gets to send some to you in a future swap... i will try to make sure the same people dont send to the same person over and over)

    I will reply to e-mails to let you know I received it. Write again if you don't hear from me w/in 24 hrs. Please send me an email with the following information:

    BYC Name
    Real Name
    Phone #
    Have (candy, cookies, desert breads,variety AScandy, AScookies, ASdesert breads, ASvariety NO SPECIFICS PLEASE )
    Want (candy, cookies, desert breads,variety, anything, AScandy, AScookies, ASdesert breads, ASvariety, ASanything NO SPECIFICS PLEASE)
    AS=artificial sweeteners
    Please choose from the following categories:

    desert breads

    *Anything, Anything ASonly, Anything no AS (Only available as a "want" selection.)

    1. Do not post what you want or have on this thread.
    2. Do not send me a PM with your info.

    To be entered in this swap, please post only that you want to enter this months swap, and send an email to

    [email protected]

    with the listed information. Thanks!

    Be sure to send me an email with tracking info when you send your eggs!!

    Have fun! [​IMG]

    lol.... okay.... carry on!!!!!!!! let the baking begin!!!!!!!

    i edited AGAIN to add the AS to the catergories... we may have members who can't have real sugar, or those like me, who can't have artificial sweeteners, so i'm hoping i can make the logistics of that all work out.. i'll update if it looks like there will be too many complications having them seperate categories...

    *edit again to add*
    the number 12 was a base for cookies... if you're doing candies, feel free to send more, if yummy breads are your thing and a loaf slices think into 9 slices, i think that's fine too....

    i want this to be fun and exciting.. for the sender and receiver...
