This is a swap made just for me!  I love to upcycle and repurpose items.  Sending info in a bit.


Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

I'm participating in my first swap now.  I've already sent so I hope I get positive feedback before sign ups close.  I save everything and would enjoy this swap sooo much.

Ooh. This might be a big swap!

Nezumi, hope your timing works out!

Aaaahh, this sounds awesome! I have to think about it for a while, as this is college apps season and on top of that I'm partway through another swap, but I would love to do this!
« Reply #9 on: February 01, 2009 09:02:50 PM »

Thank you.  I sent on the 31st so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  If not will there be a round 2?
