Participants allowed: International (females only).

Ages allowed: All ages.

    Assalaamu Alaykum dear Farhana,

    What a great swap idea!!! I would really like to take part but the postal service here is not on my side! Especially if we're mailing out to 10 sisters. In sha Allah another time! Looking forward to see how this one goes and seeing pics!

    Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sisters,

    Umm Hibaat, how are you? Haha.. yes, yes.. I know how the postal service is there.. I'm sorry.. I wish I could fix things. Just to clear things, we have to mail 10 gifts to only one sister :D *I hope that changes your mind about things..haha*

    Heya' Washi! Jazaki'Allahu khair for the email, I am soooooo excited you are joining us this year! :D

    Lots of Love

    As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest Maria,

    Ramadaan Mubarak!

    I wondered where you'd gone... haven't heard from you in a while. I pray all is well at your end.

    Aww, I'm sorry you missed the swap - maybe sign up for the newsletter (http://sketchedsoul.blogspot.com/2007/04/swaps-projects.html) so you'll know as soon as a new one is out, insha'Allah.

    Insha'Allah we'll have a Winter swap around December.

    Take care
    Love Farhana
