It's never to early to start thinking about christmas!

This was so much fun last year, It made the lead up to christmas even more fun! and it'll be well after my self imposed swap drought!

I think the reason we ended up going with the chaos of everybody making new posts every time they opened, was so that people could just use the 'new' button on the topic board (next to the page numbers) and skip straight to the stuff they hadn't already seen, instead of having to look at all of the previous days to get to the new stuff, (if you get what i mean!)

Anyway;
I would sososo be up for this!

I see....but now we have the show images only thing and that makes looking through the posts much easier!!

This sounds like so much fun and the other gallery was great. The idea for editing our posts to add a new picture each day would probably work great if we have a separate chat area? I would love to do this and would probably take advantage of my time in the US in Nov to mail everything! I will definately save a spot for this!

I'd love to do this too.  I think starting signups and closing early is a brilliant idea.

I was thinking that when I start the gallery, that everyone would go into it and post a "reserved for my goodies" spot and then anything after that could be used for compliments and conversation. Smiley

If it ends up being too crazy for everyone to handle, I guess we could go with the chaos idea of having everyone post whenever and wherever in the gallery thread.... Tongue

I know in the shop the swap (I think thats what its called) gallery, they have used the gallery for pics only.  Any discussions could be made on the original thread, or after all reserved spots like kishcrafts suggests.  I can only imagine how cluttered things can get, but I have seen some pretty cluttered galleries in big swaps...I don't really mind.  I always use the show images only.

Oh yeah, I guess I could impose a pictures only rule in the swap gallery!!! I like that the shop the swap swaps have that rule that discussion is for the original thread only!! Thanks for reminding me about that krafty_kelly! Wink

Half the fun was the MONSTER gallery....and yes...we had several
ideas for the gallery end...lol,seperate posts for each person was my idea lol but it worked out well with "chaos" With sooo many peeps
sending soooo much stuff, I think it would be hard not to allow comments with/after the pics...I mean...whoa craftster123 i tottaly loved the day 11 item you got from craftgeek that you posted the pics for last tues...
or maybe it is my craft A.D.D that makes that seem hard....
but we do have the images only feature for quick updates.

This swap is such a big deal as far as time & energy I don't think anyone really minded all the pages....and we never got close to the 179 I thought we would have lol.

ok...thats my 2 cents of rambling!
3 more cheers for kishcrafts and her 2 "elf" helpers lol

I am going to keep my fingers crosssed for the PICTURES ONLY gallery, but if it unravels at some point I won't be too upset. Wink
