            Egg Swap interest

            Ok, I said I would post this today.

            Here is how it will work you fill at least 12 eggs with embellishments, such as anything bought or homemade, like roses, embellished bottle cap, charms, handmade beaded charms ect ect, it has to fit in the regular size eggs, no easter themed items though. If you sent in 12 eggs you will receive 12 eggs back with somrthing different then what you sent.

            If you are interested please let me know asap so I can get this started, need at least 6 people interested but prefer more.

            If we just have 6 people we can still do 12 eggs. I hope you get my drift. Leave me a comment if you are interested please.
