I decided to stop doing most craft swaps. So I will be giving away my stash on a monthly basis to the person that I am partnered with. The only person who will be sending anything is me. I will be sending out a large flat rate box (or small and medium flat rate boxes), whichever I have available. It will contain random items so if you are fussy, this isn't the swap for you. I'm not sure how many more I will be doing. I will need to figure that out monthly depending on how much more stuff I have.

I have made this swap USA, due to cost. I hope everyone understands.

Each month I will assign a different question that you need to answer underneath the swap. I would recommend that you answer it when you sign-up so that you don't forget.

This month's question is Do you have any plans for Labor Day? What are they?

Good luck everyone.

I plan to stay home for Labor Day with my son Billy. We will barbeque steaks and have with corn on the cob and potato salad. This will probably the last barbeque of the season. I hope everyone has a nice Labor Day.

I plan on going for a walk with my dogs and maybe playing card game with my husband and I will cook grilled chicken and roasted veggies . Happy Labor day to everyone .

YolandiLetters 09/ 1/2021 #

I'll probably spend the weekend cleaning and getting out my autumnal decorations

KindaSadLoser 09/ 1/2021 #

Probably going to make a bunch of Halloween decorations on Labor Day.

thebragal 09/ 1/2021 #

I have a USA addy if I’m the lucky one! I have no idea what I’m going to do yet. Isn’t that a month away still? (Kidding)

Since the West Indian parade and J'ouvert on the Parkway was cancelled AGAIN this year I don't have any plans for Monday. We will probably just BBQ at home on the Foreman grill while I get the living room clean and update my ebay auctions.

On Saturday I will be taking a trip to Walmart with a friend and my daughter. There's no Walmart in NYC so that involves a 2 hour trip to Long Island by Paratransit to get there. So that's an adventure.

Other than that I'm spending the weekend cleaning. My daughter has too many old uniforms in her drawer since she hasn't been to school for 1 1/2 years. And since then has grown 4 sizes. Hoping to sell the old bottoms to have money to get her some more new clothes and some tween sized masks.

Tara 09/ 1/2021 #

My kids don’t start school till the 2nd and it seems weird they’d go for 2 days and then have 3 off. But anyway, my husband wants to take us to see his dad in eureka, california. We haven’t seen him for two years which is long for us.

ddcats 09/ 1/2021 #

I don't have any labor day plans except to chill with my 2 cats. Lol. My daughter lives 350 miles away. My two sons, 17&21, will hopefully meet me for lunch Saturday or Sunday. I'm getting ready to make a bunch of inchies for a Facebook inchies group I'm in. The Halloween swap and Christmas swap is coming soon so I'll probably spend some time working on those with either judge Judy or the dead files playing on the tv in the background. ❤️

pinklilly 09/ 2/2021 #

I don't have any other plans except staying home with my family and make some yummy barbeque! We haven't done in a while so we can enjoy it at this holiday time!!

Burger1girl 09/ 2/2021 #

I have to work at my job in a grocery store. Going to be busy! Crafting after work will be stress relief! I appreciate you doing this for us!!

XwattsX 09/ 2/2021 #

i have to work for a short time on labor day - the clinic is closed but we already have boarders booked, so i'll be taking one of the shifts that day to go in and care for them, give them some loves. then it's home to indulge in art and be with my dog (she's the best!) when people start shooting. this is so cool of you, thank you!!

KathyB 09/ 2/2021 #

I don't have any plans for Labor Day. Just staying home with my dog and maybe get some swaps ready to go out. Thank you for this swap!

AZmom875 09/ 2/2021 #

I am officially an empty nester. My oldest foster son got a kidney transplant, May 20 and was approved to work, and all that stuff. He moved out Aug 14th. So I plan to be home with my husband, 4 dogs, and 3 cats that ignore me unless they are hungry. We will most likely grill on the small grill I bought him for Father's Day. Jump in the pool. Try to stay cool. It is 93F today and expected to be 102 F Monday, which is normal for Phoenix, AZ

BobaBarb 09/ 2/2021 #

My labor day plans are to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Have a happy and sweet new year!

Prettyexpressions 09/ 2/2021 #

Were going camping and fishing!

apocaleepse 09/ 2/2021 #

I don't have much planned, probably just going to play video games with some friends, or maybe go for a hike!

Catzcre8 09/ 2/2021 #

I am planning a surprise, belated birthday party for my 7 year old daughter. She was sick on her birthday. Then I got sick and am still recovering from brochitus. Thanks in advance, Catherine (Catzcre8)

Poohtat 09/ 3/2021 #

I will be spending time with my brother at our cabin. He is coming from New Mexico to visit for two weeks. His daughter just had a little baby girl last month after years of trying and he is excited to meet Avianna. We will cook out on Labor Day and play some board games

AZmom875 09/ 3/2021 #

@Poohtat that is such a darling way to spend your Labor day. The babies name is so precious. I hope you have a great weekend.

chimerix 09/ 3/2021 #

I'll be working a photo shoot for our next theatrical production on Labor Day itself, but the rest of the weekend is set aside for me to do crafting. Aloha

crochetjunkie 09/ 3/2021 #

No plans for Labor Day; it’s my usual day off, so I don’t even get an extra day off like most of the rest of America. So I’ll spend it laying in bed catching up on sleep.

Labor Day will be unusual this year-we will continue with our homeschool in efforts of an early finish for our upcoming move.

Kittybob83 09/ 3/2021 #

We usually have a little end of summer cook out and enjoy our day off. But these past few months have literally been the worst in my entire life. On top of that everyone in my house is sick. So i cant imagine leaving my bed on Monday.

creativeseconds 09/ 4/2021 #

Hello! What a nice idea for a RAK ~ My oldest daughter is coming home with my grandog for a visit today! We are going to go for a boat ride and out to dinner for labor day weekend fun. Take care! Love, Karen

paperlover 09/ 4/2021 #

My husband and I were going to Branson MO but decided to stay in Tulsa OK. I've been cleaning my craft room to make room in case I win this RAK. We went to a flea market today and found a lot of great Halloween stuff. Not sure what we will do Sunday and Monday but we will definitely enjoy the time off from work!

Riririria 09/ 5/2021 #

My family is just doing a classic Barbecue! We also recently bought a fire pit and since the weather's finally been getting a little cooler, I can't wait to fire it up on a chilly September night!

JKsgranny 09/ 5/2021 #

I will be home with my husband, relaxing and getting ready for going back to work!

AZmom875 09/ 5/2021 #

I did go out to lunch with my 33 year old, the one who got the kidney in May. I took his stuff he left behind, and some stuff I have found will packing to move. We had lunch at our favorite place Chino Bandidos. Fusion food. Then we went to wal-mart, because the item I wanted (good tape) was store pick up only. It was super busy, Zero carts when we walked up. Luckily we waited 2 minutes and a guy brought about 20. That tells me that there are either 300 carts in the store or in the parking lot. We both commented on how long it has been since we have stepped into. Walmart, months and months

BeHappyToday 09/ 5/2021 #

Just having a quiet stroll in the park with a light brunch picnic. Watch our dog wade in the pond. Then back to our wall paper removal project upon returning home.

gillman 09/ 6/2021 #

I am going to the lake to visit family and have some fun in the sun!

jinxspinx 09/ 7/2021 #

Labor Day: Sitting around and relaxing! May have to go out and sit on the front porch and enjoy the nice weather! :)

patricia8288 09/ 7/2021 #

Thank you for hosting. My plans were spending time with family. I host a nice BBQ.

RiverTopanga 09/ 7/2021 #

I don't have any plans for Labor Day. I don't own a grill, so I can't grill out, I don't know enough people to here yet to be invited to any parties... but probably wouldn't go anyway, due to such high # of COVID cases here in FL. So, staying home and crafting! I think that's a great way to spend a holiday 😄

Hope you all have/had a great one!

heather24242 09/ 8/2021 #

On labor day my family had a "birthday party" for everyone in the family since we stopped doing monthly get-togethers to celebrate family members' birthdays each month due to covid. It was a fun time and it the first time I saw many of family members in quite some time. We decided to do something different for food, so we got pizza and tacos, which was delicious. For presents, we did a lottery where everyone brought money and there was one big jackpot prize and everyone else got a smaller amount of money. We randomized it by having everyone pick a black balloon filled with money and popping it to see how much money we won.

baseri 09/ 8/2021 #

Hello, thank you for hosting. Labor Day was a quiet one for us, daughter is away at college and son was out playing basketball with his friends. My husband did make a brisket in the smoker which was very good with corn and green beans. Hope everyone had a nice holiday.

Jafferty 09/ 8/2021 #

We stayed home on Labor Day and did some yard work. I made some Label Bags and Friendship sheets for new swaps.

carol 09/ 8/2021 #

My son brought my grandson over and we swam and played a game.Best kind of day for me!

VitaLynne 09/ 9/2021 #

Hi Yvonne. I am happy to report that I had no specific plans for Labor Day. I stayed home and had lots of fun surfing the internet. So so much fun! What a lovely swap. I hope I get matched with you, as I really really need supplies. All the best to you. Vita Lynné

MailArtbyJac 09/10/2021 #

Thank you for offering! We did not do anything on Labor Day, my husband had to go into work

KarenLaneWV 09/10/2021 #

I didn't see this until after Labor Day...we didn't do much as this week was the local farm show. My 16 year old grandson is in 4-H and had lambs to exhibit as well as he showed some of his sister's dairy goats in the show for 4-H and FFA. Tomorrow, they will both show her dairy goats in the open show. This happens every year here starting the day after Labor Day!

oneholypassion44 09/10/2021 #

I took Labor Day to stay home and get some house work done that I just can't seem to find time to do any other day. So while it wasn't super fun, it was productive and that made me feel good.

3cats2dogsand2crazykids 09/10/2021 #

Labor Day weekend was quite warm here in California so we spent the weekend in A/C. Monday we napped and binged watched ‘click Bait’ on Netflix. (It is really good!).

sweettems 09/11/2021 #

Interesting idea! I had a calm Labor Day. It is still really hot year (UT) this year. I enjoyed working on some crafts.

Cgscdy 09/13/2021 #

Honestly we done nothing. We live in a tiny town most of which Covid has shut down. Usually we cook out but just wasn't up to it this year.

Erasernut 09/13/2021 #

Well, I didn't see this swap until after Labor Day, but I spent it in my scrapbooking room making embellishments for junk journaling and scrapbooking. Unfortunately, I was on call for work, so I couldn't leave my small town to go do anything extra fun, but the relaxing day by myself crafting was exactly what I needed!

Flamingoloon 09/14/2021 #

My husband decided to work Labor Day, so I had planned to stay home and putter around. That didn't happen, my son called me and said he had found a car he was interested in, a Scion FR-S. We drove to Northern Virginia and looked at it. He fell in love with it, so he bought it. I got home at midnight and promptly fell asleep.

TonyaAshe 09/14/2021 #

For Labor Day...I stayed home and enjoyed time with my family and had fun being creative making a few paintings.

alexalgebra 09/14/2021 #

I didn't do much for Labor Day. Mostly hung out at home and relaxed on my day off!

bpl76 09/14/2021 #

My friends birthday was labor day this year so we went drinking it was her 45

lovenita 09/14/2021 #

I started a new job and was SO excited to get a three day weekend already. I did ALL my chores/housework on Sunday so I could relax all day Monday :)

yvonne401 09/15/2021 #

Wow! Quite a sign-up! Good luck to everyone!

ericabella 09/15/2021 #

Hello, all! I didn't do anything special for Labor Day. I enjoyed having the day off, though. I was able to crochet a pumpkin for my Etsy shop, write a poem, and watch YouTube. Take care and happy swapping!

Linsoid 09/15/2021 #

Hello! We had a great Labor Day! Hubby and I were away the night before for the first time since having kiddos 4yrs ago to celebrate our anniversary! We gambled, we ate without interruption, we saw a movie, did a little shopping and visited a spot called Lake Las Vegas to snap a cute photo. It is rather amazon how much we can accomplish when our kids aren’t with us, haha,

kizzlets 09/15/2021 #

Had a relaxing Labor Day! Slept in on Labor Day, husband and I did some browsing on Amazon to look for some new couches to replace our ancient Italian couches. Had no luck. We had a small barbecue in our backyard porch. Afternoon was spent deep cleaning inside of our cars. Evening was spent crafting and journaling for swapbot :) it was a low key chill day!
