After some hesitation -- I am in for this swap. I think the dates should work pretty well for me (I'm organizing something else).

BUT... I didn't watch GG Season 7. I have all the other seasons on DVD - but I just couldn't get into it this year. Still, I'm planning on getting the DVDs when they come out so.. Is it going to be a big deal that I won't get the references to that season? I mean, I know some of the plot lines so unless there was a real twist at the last episode that shouldn't be a problem...

Let your partner know so she won't spoil you and hopefully you will get paired with someone who prefers crafts that reference the  first seasons.

Well, I actually watched (and own all the DVDs) for Seasons 1 - 6. I did watch some of Season 7 -- just not the last 5 or 6 episodes. Wink The dialogue just didn't seem as good after Amy Sherman-Palladino left, IMHO.

I have already been thinking up some really fun ideas for this!! I started watching some of the DVDs again too. I can't wait to get started.

I don't know why everyone keeps criticisizing the new Producer's writing. It was Amy's fault that Lor slept with Chris and broke up with Luke!! SHE was the one who wrote that arc and storyline. Yes Amy's eps were great but she sabatoged that show when she left. It's not like it was the easiest to fix.

Oops - wasn't trying to say anything bad about the show. Wink I'm already signed up to get an email notice from Amazon the second that the DVDs for Season 7 have a release date.

Mmmkay, we are almost done with the sign up period. I can hardly wait to find out who my partner is. I already made a loooooooooooooong list of possible crafty items. Cheesy

Hey, well umm I thought I was gonna be able to participate, but after much deliberation I just can't. I have so many culminating tasks due, work, and 4 exams this semester, that I can't handle this. I definitely don't have time this month to craft for somebody, and since the sendout date is July 2 I'm afraid I would disappoint a partner. Sorry!  I'll wait patiently for the gallery, and hopefully there will be another GG swap. Sad to miss out on what looks to be such a great swap though.  Cry

I've got a combination of small things done that I'm calling one of my "medium"s.  Plus, my partner tells me that she'll get even obscure references, so I'm also putting in something I found while shopping that was in an episode once.  Smiley

I've almost finished what was suposed to be a "medium", but so much time was put into it it's becoming a large. My other 2 planned items are also pretty large. I need to find some smaller things to stuff my box with!

I have a couple things that look like smalls on first glance, but I spent a long time designing them and what not so I consider them medium. Time as well as size goes into it.

Yes. yes Gypsolou. Yay for obscure references. I watch all the dvd seasons all the time. Even as background sound so I think subconcious stuff goes in my head.

I have been watching the DVDs while crafting and I just keep coming up with more and more ideas. Most of my projects are in various states of being assembled though -- nothing is totally complete.

I'm having so much fun with this!! I worry I might be going a little over-board though. Hopefully Kyou won't mind.  Grin

You're way ahead of me!  I am about half done.  But this weekend is craft weekend - literally - a group of my friends and family get together to craft together, usually once a month.  It's like a big party where everyone does their own crafty thing while chatting and learning new crafty things from everyone else.  And we always have huge fantastic lunches. Anyway, I should be finishing this weekend!  That's my goal anyway.

That's so exciting! Cheesy I can't wait to get a gallery going.

I, however, will probably be sending out right on time. I came up with so many ideas for this swap -- but still haven't actually completed any of them. I'm off to change that though. Wink

cumber - sorry to read about your gpa. Mine died recently and it was really hard. *hugs*
