I'm still a bit leery of the method of swapping done here--I'm used to everyone sending to the host and then having them swapped around and sent out. No one gets flaked on that way. Though I've only got one full swap done here, I've been swapping and hosting for a few years now elsewhere. I was really disappointed to the point where I just ended up dropping out of my second swap here because I got my partner shifted so many times I wouldn't be able to come up with something personal and good in time to send out. So I'm hoping for some good experiences to come so I can forget about all that!
With a great theme like this, I know it'll be super fun!
What swap were you in that the organizer changed your partner? I've completed 25 swaps here on Craftster, and never seen that done. I've seen an organizer have to leave for a family crisis (completely understandable!), and a few members flake (sad & annoying), but I've also many MANY more people offer to step up and Angel for someone else, or offer to take on an extra partner or group when someone withdraws (completely heartwarming).
Stick around Craftster and give swapping here a good shot. I assure you pinkleo
& I run a pretty tight ship and we do our best to make sure each swapper has a good experience. And in the mean time before DOfDH2, you might want to check out pinkleo's
