Details of swap:
It's baaack! This swap, which is very liberal, will give those US and UK cousins a chance to really knock each other's socks off. We'll trade the very best of anything to do with our respective countries, including (as possible) the fondest desires of your swapping partner (as long as it's clean & legal, LOL). Anything goes, but please try to keep your budget in mind - we don't want you going broke. Magazines? Chocolate? Tea? Those tiny bottles of hair gel? Oatmeal? "My cousin went to San Jose and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"? Marmite? Anything you can think of that those on either side can't live without. This is better than a "My Country Doesn't Have..." this is "We GOTTA have it!"
You can work with your swap partner through communication so you can stay within the range of what is reasonable. You'll post a list of your 10 most desired items (again, within reason) and if you can't think of 10, ask for a surprise. It isn't required of your swap partner to fulfill your top 10; it rather serves as a baromter to your likes.
Crafting is welcomed, but not totally required. If you find you can craft something in lieu of finding it ready made, all the nicer.
We'll need equal amounts of participants from both sides of the pond! If you're willing to send an extra box if we're off, please let me know!
