As long as it takes for your package to get there.  Smiley  After they receive you can ask the organizer to give feedback so you can join up.

you have to wait for your package to get to your partner, then they need to post pictures and then you need to ask your organizer to give you feedback.

Why don't you qualify?  It looks to me like you qualify from your profile. 

it said you needed to have done two swaps to join, and i've only done one, unless i read that wrong... i did this right before work so i probably wasnt thinking terribly clearly


*edit* lol i was a bit slow, i dont know where i got that from but woohoo i'm in!

I'm sure everyone's hard at work crafting for the swap, but...
Here's a cute distraction I found the other day.  Build your own virtual Dia de los Muertos shrine.

The site is geared towards kids, but sometimes you just have to let your inner child out to play.  Right?  Wink
