This swap is for those of us who miss the hit television show Gilmore Girls and all of the awesomeness that came with it!

You will craft 2 small items, 1 medium item, and 1 large item. You can talk with your partner if you want to do more items, or make any other modifications. Use your partner's questionnaire to judge what they might like.

Each participant will be expected to post on this thread at least once a week, updating us on your progress. Also, if you do not have a camera, please notify your partner so he/she can take pictures before sending.  Not posting pictures is rude, and if you fail to take photos (or at least explain why you can't!) I will make note of this on your feedback.

I loved the TGG's!!! I'm keeping this one in mind. I have one space open for swaps and I have another one I really, really want to join as soon as it's up.   Wink

I should have space before the end of sign ups.  Grin

I am thinking about doing this for my sister. She loves the gilmore girls more than I do!
I so miss this show but I don't have cable. She still watches the re-runs. Hum.... I'll have to think about it.

I do miss the Gils so much!  I'm hoping they come out with a movie.  No offense to the Sex in the City fanbase but the Gilmore Girls are way more deserving of a movie.
Thinking I might sign up for this swap.

O man, I'm such a Gilmore Girls addict. I have all seven seasons, and I've seen them all anywhere from 3-6 times each. I don't know if I'll have time, but there's since there's such a long sign up period.. I may break down and sign up! I'm definitely filling a questionnaire out on Microsoft Word, and bookmarking for future reference. I'm sure I'll cave in by tomorrow night.  Grin

I'm one of those weird people who has to have the Tv on to sleep so I pop in a Gilmore girls dvd and set the sleep timer. Gilmore girls tucks me in at night. I think I might have to sign up.

Hey,

Has anyone heard from the organizer of the swap, Chucklikesart? I asked for a confirmation that I'm on the swap list and haven't heard back at all....

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys.

I am soooo tempted.  I just signed up for my very first swap (owl themed) and I'm not sure if I should do two at once.  I love this show in a scary obsessive way...I even sucked my husband in.  Ugh, what's a girl to do?

Actually, if you're in your first swap right now, you have to wait until you get feedback for it until you sign up for any more.  Sad
 After you finish your first swap, you can be in up to 5 swaps at a time.

Yeah, I had to read the rules a few times before everything clicked with me.
And it looks like I'll probably have to wait for the next round too.  Cry

Hello, all

I am so sorry about my absence-- I've been ill, there wa sa death in the family, and my workload has been ridiculous these past few weeks. The good news is: my workload has decreased for the next few months and I'm feel much better.

So, because I have been such a slacking organizer, I decided to lengthen sign-ups and send outs by 1 week, so the new deadline is 08/28 and the new send out date is 09/28

I'm terribly sorry I disappeared for so long. Now, lets make with an awesome swap! Who is with me?

Partners are up and I'll be sending questionaires in the next few minutes!

I'll be out of town until the 2, so if you have any questions... hold them until then?  Or ask one of our FREAKING AWESOME swap mods!

Sorry I've been so scarce, guys-- I just found out I have mono. blech. I've been sleepins/ working/homeworking all of the time. It basically sucks. My spleen is swollen Sad

So, anyway, I think it's time for a quick roll call! Please respond here after you read this message, just to make sure you're still on the Gilmore train!

I'm here!  Although I won't be able to log in much in the next.. prolly 2 weeks.  Last night my hard drive randomly decided to stop working while I was playing iTunes.  Second time this has happened in 6 months.  Needless to say I am not happy.

Anyway, I'll try to log on as much as possible but I don't know how often that will be Sad  Maybe every few days.

Having mono sucks!  are you all red and bumpy?  my best friend caught mono right before graduation senior year of high school.  not the best prom you could have, but i guess you work with what you get Smiley

Hey, everyone!

I'm lengthening send-outs by one week, because I know if I need extra crafting time, everyone else probably does too. If you are ready to send out by the 28th (the original send out date) go ahead, and you'll get feedback as soon as everything has arrived and been posted. If not, take your time Wink

The new sendout date is 10/06/08!
