Wow - just wow - I'm blown away by the quality of everything in the shops this round.

I have a little neg feedback to fix, and the Swap the Shops weren't around last time I was on Craftster, but once I do that I'm hoping to open up shop and go shopping.  I've seen so many things which I know people would love for Christmas, and some for myself too!

<infomercial voice>
Are you tired of waiting for a shop to open so you can spend your points? Is the wait taking days away from your spendable turn around time to reopen your shop?

Well, act now! Donate a point to the inflation fund and your days of waiting on shops to open will magically disappear! Hurry, and for a limited time, you will also recieve a silent round of applause for your generous donation! </infomercial voice> Grin Grin

Thank you to everyone who has donated! We have gone from an average points per person of 3.9 down to 3.8! Wohoo! But donations will continue to be accepted until we get down to less than 3.5 points per person.

On another note, I have been keeping track of about how much time I spend keeping the points updated for this swap and I average about 1 to 1.5 hours  a day. Now that's not my total time on craftster or my time crafting for participating in the swap itself. That's just the amount of time I spend updating points, responding to PM's, tracking down errors in points, double checking claims, etc for this swap. So, that's about 30-45 hours per month, or 120-180 hours for the 4 rounds I have done. And I wonder why I don't have time to work out any more.  Shocked So, we, the organizers have decided that in the interest of sanity (mostly what little is left of mine Cheesy) we should cap the number of participants in this swap at 50. We haven't hit that number yet. Round 6 was our biggest group with 44. If somebody else later on wants to take over oragnzing as a part time job and open it up to more then that will be up to them. But I can't keep up with more than that. And stay tuned because there maybe an announcement regarding the supplies issue soon, want to work out a few more details.

Thanks everyone!

Heehee.  Nice informercial RHSD!  Does that mean if we donate a point that we can magically shop from any store that is closed?  Or just that our shop we no longer be closed until we spend down to 5 if we get to 7+?

And thanks for all of your hard work!!!
