Details of swap:
Craftsters are always traveling hither and yon and we get bored flying/riding!  I thought we could swap for some comfort items, fun items, crafty items, whatever will make your travel a little more fun and comfortable!

We will be sending 1 medium and 2 small items.  A medium could be a small blanket for the airplane (they're always cold!) or train or bus - or maybe a neck pillow or a craft kit.  A small could be a book, crossword puzzles, a journal for the trip, etc.  The medium item must be crafted or be a craft kit - the 2 smalls can be crafted or purchased.



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Email address
Your real name

What would make the traveling less boring/more comfortable for you?

This sounds like such a great idea, useful too. 
I'll wait to sign up later if I can get ahead in the two other swaps I've signed up for already.

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.

I'm glad we've gotten a few people - it'll be fun crafting for traveling!

I'm off to Minnesota in February and Georgia in March.  I'm not sure yet about the rest of the year! Smiley

that sounds fun!  except the cold part.  i frequently go to South Carolina to visit my fiance and may be goign to Texas to visit my family.  I may be going to Syria to visit my fiance once he starts Arabic classes there.  We're all a little unsure of the details on that.  Other than that, who knows!?  I've only recently discovered the Chinatown bus system here in DC.
