    I'm sure a lot of you have already seen this swap going on, but I wanted to let you know that it is still open and is a wonderful and easy swap!.

    It has one of the best hosts, Mickeydownunder, and all you have to send is a holiday greeting card (or two or three)!

    If you have not signed up yet please go check it out!

    Too funny Jean, no time, not time!!

    Girls and I will be baking after Thanksgiving, and my partner has some time off after and will be doing her baking then too, so we are definitely a good match.

    Here's hoping everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

    PS - I had already signed up for the card swap, can't wait to find out who I'm partnered with. It's a simple swap, just exchange holiday cards, not too expensive, not to time consuming. Just sharing the spirit of the season. Thanks for promoting it!

    Chef Jean are you going to send all the shipping info to each one of us or do you just want us to exchange info?

    Everyone should exchange info. I just hold onto the addresses in case there is a problem with the website or one partner goes out of town or something like that icon_biggrin.gif

    Hello hello all, out of curiosity (and maybe a little necessity) how are you planning on packaging and shipping your packages? I haven't sent homemade cookies in bulk before and of course I want to avoid mushed and crumbles if possible.

    When we used to send them in the military we would take 2-4 (depending on their sturdiness) and wrap them in tissue. All that tissue kept them from rubbing too much against each other. Depending on what/how many you're sending you can put the tissue wraps in a container in the box, or just in the box but you want them packed so they don't shift, Not top bottom side or side.Thick bubble wrap under and over is good too, for those tosses that sometimes get made with lighter packages.

    And when all else fails, just remember - crumbled cookies have no calories icon_biggrin.gif

    That is a really good question!

    I like to wrap any drop cookies, or cut out cookies that are the same shape back to back in plastic wrap. Then package them in a ziplock with tissue paper between layers.

    I also like to use rectangle or square tins (or plastic storage containers) to pack anything rounded or odd shaped. Like Buzymom said use plenty of tissue and packing material.

    These packages usually end up being much bigger than they are heavy!

    Here are a few articles about shipping cookies:

    This one lists types that are good or NOT good for shipping.

    I have sent to my nephew during his deployments to Afganistan and used the USPS square boxes which are fabulous and used popcorn around ziplock plastic bags of goodies. Worked like a charm. No breakage.
