I just edited this to clarify the swap details a little.  We'd make one belt for two different people for a total of two belts.  Is that clearer now?

Happy Craftin'!

LAST DAY TO SIGN UP!!!!
I'm getting super psyched about this swap.  Just a general question to throw out there to all the swappers in this one...would you guys be cool with a moved back due-date?  I, as well as anyone else in the Funky Black Purse Swap, will have two due on the same day.  Would it alleviate some of the stress get the creative juices flowing a little more if you had more time?

Personally for me, the send by date is fine, but I'm sure anyone who'd like some more time would appreciate at least a small push back. 

I already know what I want to do, anyone else know what they have planned?

I see no problem with a pushed back due date... Anyone who's ready can send it early anyway, right?  No worries here!

I'm just excited to find out who I'm crafting for!  When will tomorrow come?!   Grin

I KNOW!!!!   Cheesy
I've done a preliminary match-up....it took me about an hour and a half of checking, re-checking, messing up, starting over and FINALLY coming up with a list of swap partners!  If it is indeed to be the final list, I'll post it first thing tomorrow morning when i get to work!

ciao.

Hm.  You know what, I spoke prematurely.  I've never done a swap before and while I would certainly do what you're supposed to do, I think I ought to try to do a very small swap [say, 1 belt or.. something] before I jump in so I can get the hang of things.  I don't have that much time and... I wish I hadn't posted that.
