Okay, so I fully admit it, my husband and I are diehand West Wing-nuts!  I do enjoy of course Sports Night and Aaron Sorkin's movies (including, naturally, The American President), but The West WIng is absolutely our favorite show ever (and this comes from Buffy, Angel, Psych, etc. fans)

So I know Ive seen a few mentions on here about West Wing and didnt know if there were enough people who might want to do a swap - one that would be totally open for swapping for yourself, a significant other, parent, sibling, etc. since heaven knows, I know what it's like to be married to someone who'd love things from swaps I'd never be into (although, obviously, not this one!  Cheesy )

Anyway, just putting a feeler out there with full expectation of being laughed off of craftster!

Laughed at for being a Wing-nut!?!? NEVER!!! I was just having a season 3 marathon tonight.

I'd prefer a just West Wing swap. I love everything Sorkin does WW is my obsession.

and I just realised we have identical tastes in tv shows!! Cheesy WW, Buffy, Psych... YAY

I'd help co-organise if you like, but couldn't do it all alone. And fingers crossed you have this soon because I leave the country in May/June.

OMG! My husband & I are obsessed with the West Wing! I'd totally be up for this! (I'm just participating in my first swap though so I don't think I'd be eligible until that ends).

This is so sad! I keep checking & this post keeps sinking & sinking & sinking. How is it possible there aren't more West Wing fans on here?? If you're going to try to do it, I'm doing the onesie swap & send-outs are April 27 so I should be able to participate once I get feedback from that! Smiley

Thats fine with me - as far as I know, 3 people can have a swap just fine!   Cheesy  I dont mind at all, if you guys will still want to do it with only the three of us...?

Fine with me! Some people might find it on the swap board that wouldn't find it here too. I know I check that board more often than I check this one.

Hey guys,
I'm really sorry but i'm having a break from swapping until December so I won't be able to join. I'm happy to join in December though if you have another round.
Sorry!! I hope you find more interested people - it's so strange that there's only 3 of us. TWW was such a great show. So many people loved it!!

Random ideas I just had:
"slept with a callgirl" tshirt
bartlet for america shirt --->>> I WANT ONE!! Cheesy
A deck of cards for all their poker games - maybe WW photos or quotes on the back?
a map of the world for CJ
the book josh gave donna- we'd finally get the inscription!!
goldfish crackers!!

so many ideas... *sigh*

Just wondering if anyone else out there was a fan?

We had very little interest last time we talked about this as a swap.

I'd be interested, depending on the details.  I so miss that show.  I got "Santos & McGarry" mugs that I used to use in the office.

ive had it listed for like a month now! lol

i am certainly not opposed to a teeny tiny swap - i'll take what i can get!  Cheesy  as it is, im gonna have to fight my husband for whatever i get for either, but even worse for TWW!  in fact, that was pretty much the first major thing we bonded over - our mutual love of the west wing and all things aaron sorkin (but thats our favorite!)  on our wedding program, we included aaron sorkin in our thank-yous!  my family totally thought we were ridiculous, but we meant it!  Wink

If it is a no-point or small point swap, I'm in also.
Can't really handle a 6-pointer. Postage costs are just too high.

I don't have the time OR money for more 6 pointers Cheesy

I was thinking about 3 maybe 4 points? But since there's so few of us I guess we could decide between partners prefered sizes.

I really wanna do this swap, so if there's no objection I'm planning to organize it for signups to start in a few weeks. I'm thinking maybe a 4 point swap since everyone seems to think smaller would work better. Maybe if anyone is interested in swapping more points that could be on the questionnaire & I'd do my best to pair up people accordingly. I'm thinking 2 weeks for signups & then about a month for crafting. So basically signups early to mid-June, sendouts in mid-July.
I'm flexible, so let me know what you all think! Smiley

I definitely couldn't do more than 4 points. No idea what I could even craft for this - i'm thinking things with quotes Cheesy
But it's the best show ever so I have to join!

Except I just joined my fifth swap...

The West Wing does have the best quotes! I'm sure once you got crafting you'd think of other stuff too  Grin
The end of sign-ups probably would be a month from now so maybe you'll have a swap wrapped up by then Smiley
