    :lol: 1999 would be the old, old, old boards wouldn't it. That was when I joined when amitys wasn't a board it was a diaper swap.

    I really enjoyed your blog and commented about the freebie (very, very cute btw)!

    We were just discussing workboxes on here last week. I am planning to use something similar to what you are doing with file boxes. I am also going to use the idea of moving all their completed work to notebooks since I want to have a portfolio of work for them at the end of the year.

    I think it was the ONLY cloth diapering board at the time. I got here because we switched Christian over to cloth. Wow. That WAS a long time ago... He's ten. And it was six babies ago, lol. Wow. How quickly time flies.

    I know it was the only one I found. I remember scouring born to love also and I think that is how I found amitys.

    G will be 10 in Oct so I found amitys about this time of the year as I was searching for cloth for our soon to be born baby!

    I've been part of Amity's for 11 years now (in August, I believe). Amazing, huh? Same reason, too. :)

    hrm.. if I wasn't so crappy about getting things back into the mail, I'd do it... and I'd have no clue as for brainstorming either... but now this is something I want.

    I remember the preschool swap. I still have some of those things that I want to use in workboxes in the fall for the little guys.

    I will go start a new thread with ideas for Prek/K workbox or bag activities.

    Same here, I found the diaper sale and swap board in July or August 1998 ~ I was pregnant with my first.
