Please make the equivalent of 5 points worth of items (large = 3, medium = 2, small = 1) unless you and your partner agree to more.

I want to join but a) it's a huge amount of work and I have a lot to do as it is, and b) I don't know what space I'll have. Maybe I'll have space nearer the end of sign ups.

I just guessed on scope, so if anyone has other suggestions I'm open to discussion. Maybe 2 meds and 2 smalls?Keep in mind crafting time is just over a month.

I was thinking about what it would cost to ship.  Maybe a large, medium and 2 smalls.  You can usually tuck smalls anywhere.  And when the requirements are big, you can't spoil, which is part of the fun of swapping.

I'll have to see how my time goes.

Hmmmm....  I'll admit I suffer from depression and could use some good cheering, but I don't have the energy for 1 large, 2 mediums and 3 smalls.  I like 2 mediums, 2 smalls better.  I'll wait to see what happens before I sign up Smiley

I have changed the swap requirements to be more in line with some of the other swaps going on right now. I hope those of you who are thinking about it can fit it in now!

Depression is not a requirement, anything bringing you down is a good reason to join.

While if you suffer from any type of depression, this would be a nice swap for you, I think if you have anything bringing you down you could use some cheering up. Smiley I'm just super stressed from work and family stuff.
