The term 30 Something just means you are 30-39 years old, born between Jan. 1966 - Dec. 1976
Basically its a regular (no theme/unless you choose a theme) swap between our peers. You will fill out the very detailed questionnaire and hopefully your partner can craft something fun for you. Please communicate with your partners if you are stumped for idea's. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items.

I should be getting some swap feedback within the week so after that I am signing up. Smiley

Oh batgirl I know! I started seeing ads for the 'skinny' jeans and the leggings and I about fell out of my chair. I am just waiting to see someone 'pegging' the hems of their jeans. haha

*sigh* ahhh back to the 80's when my loftiest goal was to marry Simon LeBon (or whatever the Duran Duran guy's name is  Cheesy )

Luckily I managed to stay thin thru the 80's. The 90's & beyond haven't been nearly as nice to me...yet another joy of being over 30...you inherit your mother's child-bearing hips without having to earn them by giving birth.

 Cheesy kindred spirit! I was the same size from elementary school through sophmore year of college. Though I had the hips then too, just without any 'padding' on them. Hmmm were carolies lighter in the 80's? haha

"who was on your wall as a teenager? " Sean Astin on 3 of my 4 walls!! Vive los Goonies!

Batgirl I'm a big fan of the bootcut too.

My coworkers were awesome for my 30th. My whole cube was decorated. I felt super special.

SewPixie - SEAN ASTIN!  Loved him.  The only reason I went to see all 3 Lord of the Rings.  Still love him.  Guess old crushes never die. 

I might have to start wearing more skirts till the skinny jeans die. 

I miss the leg warmers.  I loved them but of course I was in ballet and tap to I needed them for practical reasons.  Now to find a reason to wear them again.
