ABOUT THIS SWAP

Do you Like super heroes? Do you secretly want to be one? Then this is the swap for you. In honor of the upcoming season of who wants to be a super hero? http://www.scifi.com/superhero/official.html you will get to get a chance to create your own a super hero/villain and have your dark alter identity come to life. Then your craft partner will create item with your logo, colors, and your new super alter ego.

WHAT TO CRAFT
1 large item, 2 medium items, and 1 small item.  Or you can mix n match depending upon what you and your partner agree upon:
1 large=2 medium=8 small
1 medium=4 small
Communication is key in swaps, so get to know your partner, and have fun crafting.

Oh this sounds so fun. I know I won't have time for it, but I will be watching it intensely. I am having my sons do this for themselves for a bit of summer homeschooling.

Oooh, this is VERY tempting... I might just have to break my own "one swap at a time so that I don't get completely overwhelmed" rule. Although, with no more school and sporadic days of work, I might be able to pull it off. I'll think about it!
