I have updated the posting to include a list of all the sign-ups, and I have updated the swappers' profiles.
I will continue to do this at least once daily until sign-ups end.

I was checking out what's available in blank cards and envelopes at JoAnn's today. And when I checked out with the stuff I bought for another swap, they gave me a 50% coupon, so guess where I'm going once we're partnered?
