Hey "meowari" I understand what you mean about getting overwhelmed, but you could just get one partner & make 1 TM patch. Also make a bunch of patches up before hand have different colors & sizes & when you get your partner then put on the accessories when you know what her themes are. Just a Idea. I'm in the Art Doll Swap too! Anyway I would do a Personal swap with you if you want also?
Thanks for that, Sharalee, but I think I'll wait. I did a personal TM swap a couple of years ago and my hands got so bad that it took me 3 months to get the patches to my partner (I couldn't hold a pen, much less a needle) and I'm a little superstitious about both TM and personal swaps now... I went to physical therapy and I have pretty much full use of my hands now, but I am so scared that it will happen again. It's terribly unreasonable, but I just associate those two things with my hands not working
On the other hand, I do need to face my fears... Darn you, fellow craftsters, for being such a supportive community! Arghhh! I am 99.99% convinced that I can do this, but I will probably wait a little while to make the final decision
