The theme and timing sound good to me. Now I just have to keep myself from signing up for other swaps so that I can have the time to craft for this one!

Anyone else already stocking up on ideas? I need to quit it as we haven't even had sign ups yet.  Grin

Ooooo!! Ooooo! I was in #2 & had a ball, I'd definitely be interested in a round 3! Not sure I'm crazy about the theme, but I'll figure it out Smiley

Themes are easy and make the infinate amount of choices you have to make slightly smaller.  Cheesy

It doesn't have to be from the books exactly, just a take on it with Spring and Discworld in mind.

Like....
-The Luggage with little yellow galoshes on its feet (April Showers...)
-Magrat's "new" outhouse (to store your extra TP [toilet paper not Terry Pratchett] roll in)
-Spring weather accessories inspired by favorite characters, like fingerless gloves done in Magrat style (black, bats, spiderwebs... but Springy!), or hair sticks to put your hair up like Granny or Susan. A Sun hat maybe like Lady Sybil (minus the wig, the burned off eyebrows, and swamp dragon stink of course)
-Spring might be swamp dragon mating season, maybe two cute little indegestionally challenged love birds err dragons

See? I told you I was thinking about it.  Cheesy

This is what esmerelda wrote about the deadline:
"I was thinking sign-ups Feb 3rd - 17th, then send outs March 19th.  Does that work for everyone?"

So you still have a little bit of time before sign ups even start, phantomssiren.

Come on, join in.... you know you want to.  Grin

Oh go on then Conley you've twisted my arm :p I don't think I cant think of a valid reason not to swap, I've read all the books at least 4 times...

I'm not sure about the theme either, since I'm the most unspring like person imaginable but I'm sure I'll manage. How much stuff would we be sending each?
