And the best part is that you get to make great friends as well your very own, personal goodie box.

Official Details

The theme for this swap is Ye Olde Romance Swap. This swap will be an open swap and will include some fun goodies for you to play with for your creative time. If desired, the recipe for your products can be e-mailed in or sent with the products when shipped. All sent recipes will be included in the swap recipe booklet.

The purpose of this swap is to share products that are inspired by history, historical romance or historical fiction. You can use recipes that you have adapted to modern day ingredients or been inspired by parts of history and/or romance. I’m even going to allow you to choose any point in history, so you can pick any time in history that you want! This swap does coincide with Valentines Day, but you won’t receive your boxes until before White Day (Japan’s second Valentines Day for returning valentines to those who have given to you, March 14th).

To prevent the swap from becoming too big, I am going to limit the group size to 10-15 people. If we have more people that are interested, I will create a second group to allow more people to participate. If you have a limit of items you can or want to prepare, let me know and I will help you arrange to cover any extra participants.

Deadline Dates to know:
Last Sign Up Date: January 21st, 2014
Last Possible Shipping Date: February 21st, 2014
Return Mailing Date: March 5th, 2014

All items will be shipped to MMS.

When you sign up, please list size of your product so I can calculate the box size necessary. Once I know the box size, I will have a postage amount to be included with your package. I will choose the most economical method to ship your package. Normally it is more economical to ship UPS Ground for anyone outside of the state of Utah. If you desire your package to be shipped via one method or the other, please let me know.

What do I included with my package I ship?

  • Your swap items.
  • Money to cover return shipping. (Cash or Money Order ONLY) I will have a total after the sign up deadlines. I will not be able to accept personal checks.

In order to prevent confusion with dates, I will be posting frequently to help remind participants of where we are on our calendar!

Doesn’t this sound like a fun swap? I hope to see you in the forum.

Bridal Wishes Swap

Monday, January 23rd, 2012
As a little girl, I remember hovering over my mother whenever she got mail. I loved looking at the pictures on the cards or helping her unpack orders. Sometimes, I would get my own packages from my great grandmother. She would always send enormous bags of newspaper clippings, articles, books, faux postage and even the occasional AARP pamphlet. (Who knows what I would do with an AARP pamphlet at the age of eight but Grandma always sent things she thought might be important now or twenty, thirty or even fifty years down the road. That is how we knew she loved us very, very much.) I loved sorting through those enormous bags admiring the faux postage, reading the clipped newspaper comics, drawing in the activity books and learning about safety from McGruff the Dog. Sometimes, sorting through all of that paper could take a cumulative total of 3+ hours. That is a long time but a lot of fun!

This is a bit like a swap to me. There isn’t nearly as much paper, but you get play in a way that few adults get to do anymore. It is like when a little girl gets a giant makeup set. She has to try every color right now! She also feels a great desire to apply it to Mom, Grandma, Auntie, Sister, Baby Brother and even Dad! (When you get a swap box in the mail, it is a good idea to tell your significant other that they are cooking dinner tonight. ;-) ) A swap is a true treat and delight to open and go through.

The next swap I am hosting is actually divided into two sub-swaps. The overall theme is Bridal Wishes, both to and from the bride. One swap will be Wedding Favors. The Wedding Favors Swap is smaller in size. All of the items that you will ship out must fit into a small flat rate priority mail box that ships for $5.35. The other swap will be Bridal Gifts. These are “gifts” for the bride. This swap targets the medium flat rate box. The “gifts” don’t need to be full size, just represent full size with all the ribbons, bows, tags and whatnots.

These swaps will be a lot of fun for participants. These are great sources of inspiration for bridal gifts, wedding favors and even bridal shower favors. As an added plus, you even get the recipes for all of the items in the swap. How cool is that? To join, go to forum.thesage.com and register. It takes 24 hours to be approved and then you can request to join one or both swaps. I hope to see you there! It will be unforgettable!

 

Official Details!

 

The theme for this swap is Bridal Wishes. This swap will be a swap all about brides, wedding favors and bridal showers. In this swap you can make items that could be given away as favors for the wedding or bridal shower, or things that a bride needs to relax and enjoy herself before, on or after, the big day. The recipe for your products can be e-mailed in or sent with the products when shipped. (I prefer that you email them. ;-) It makes the booklet faster to put together. I want the booklet to go with the swap so help me process this quickly!) All recipes will be included in the swap recipe booklet.

Important! Read ME!
This swap will be split into two swaps. One is for wedding favors. This swap will be for small items and will be sent out in a small flat rate priority mail box that ships for $5.35. The second swap will be for larger bridal gifts and the box is a medium flat rate. Shipping for this box will be $11. You will be allowed to participate in one or both swaps. Just tell me which swap(s) you will be participating in when you sign up.

To prevent the swap from becoming too big, I am going to limit each group size to 15 people. If we have more people that are interested, I will create a second group to allow more people to participate.

Deadline Dates to know:
Last Sign Up Date: February 3rd, 2012

Kissable Lips Valentine Swap

Friday, January 6th, 2012
I love getting packages in the mail. Even if they are expected orders, they are always a treat to get and go through. :D (Plus, they always more fun to go through than the junk mail.) One great way to get a box of different and unexpected goodies is to participate in a swap. Not sure how a swap works? Allow me to explain. 

Swaps allow you to exchange soap and other bath and body products. Swaps are often themed. Some are open to any product while others are limited by product or location of application. The swap I am hosting in time for Valentine’s Day is any product to be used on the lips.

Swaps are a great opportunity to shared ideas, products and receive inspiration. Products people send in the swap include a recipe. So… if you fall in love with something from the swap, you have a recipe to try and tweak. Want to sign up? Join us on our forumand sign up there! You can talk with others just like you! So if you want to join, let me give you a quick check list. Sign up on the MMS Forum. Post in Kissable Lips Swap that you would like to join. After the last sign up date a list of participants is made. Make your products and send to Majestic Mountain Sage  2490 South 1350 West, Nibley, Utah 84321 with “ATTN: Kissable Lips Swap” on the label along with your recipe and return shipping. Wait for the return ship date and wait for your package to arrive.Want to know more about this swap? Here you are!

Sensational Celebration Swap

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011
I am so excited to introduce this swap that I will be hosting this month! For those who are unfamiliar with swaps, allow me to back up and explain a swap to you. A swap is a themed exchange of soaps, cosmetics and toiletries you make. For example, this swap is themed for celebrations, birthdays, weddings, slumber parties, graduation, baby showers etc. You decide on something to make that the theme has inspired you to create. You send in enough of your product so that all participants can try your fabulous goodies. (I limit the swaps to 15 members. There is a possibility to have multiple swaps that have the same theme if there is enough interest. If you want in the swap, I won’t leave you out.) You also send a recipe as well as a listed amount to pay for shipping. You receive back a box containing all of the goodies that the swap participants sent in as well as a complete recipe book. 

Swaps are a great activity to receive inspiration and ideas. It is also nice to get a package in the mail that isn’t junk or bill related. It is just like Christmas! Maybe even better. It is box full of fun, cheer and laughs. Swap boxes are truly a delight that brings childish joy to the recipients. Don’t believe me? Ester said this about the Halloween Swap that just had to be shared. “SQUEEE! It’s here! My ancient tom cat Gandalf ‘helped’ me go through the box, I think he felt the need to oversee the Halloween project. Everything is wonderful—- either extremely clever and well crafted or extremely useful and needed.” Thanks Ester. I can see you and Gandalf had a great time.

So… have I interested you in a swap? I hope so. If you would like to sign up for the swap, come to The Sage Forum and sign up. Swaps are listed in in the swap category. It is easy, fun and oh so rewarding.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. It’s what I am here for. In the meantime, sign up for this swap. It is guaranteed to be a party in a box! Come join this fabulous party!
