I'm in the 'older' crew - that's the over 30, though in my case, it's well over 40 as well.  So I was thinking a swap for 30 and olders, (that's the over 30 part), with no more than 30 people (that's the under 30 part) - and my thought was that you only craft 1 large item - something your partner really wants (wists, wishlists, or questionnaire) - that you know you do really well....

Does this sound like a swap that other 30 and overs might like?  I'm sort of testing the waters here........

I'm thinking for after the holiday madness, probably sign ups in January with a send out of valentine's day or so?

LMAO!!  I'll be turning 29 for the 21st time in another 6 months!  stay tuned here, or bookmark it or something - if we get enough interest, i'll be starting it up right after the holidays are over.

ok, we're up to 5 folks - so if everyone who thinks they might be interested keeps an eye out for this one, I'm thinking sign ups in january, with a valentine's day send out

my general plan says that it'll be a wist stalking - so everyone needs to make sure they have their wists updated, with some cool stuff that you can't make but probably someone else can - i'm thinking it'll be 1 large item - by craftster guidelines, that means, in general terms

By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium= one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big= $30 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars
-Small=$10 or less

Sound great!  I think there will be more interest after the holidays. Wait-ARE there any more of us geezers here?  Grin
I guess we could add a small item or two to the package too right? 
Sometimes my favorite things to make are the small ones.
