A ~ A pkg. of apple flavored candy

Just a thought, you could always team people up based on first and middle names if you have not enough long names to pair people up.

This is such a cool swap, unfortunately this is too close for me to my first babies due date to risk it (30th May)don't want to end up not being able to send out if the baby comes early.

May be up for another round though, good luck with this one.

This sounds like so much fun!!! I have to run around the boards now and note when each swap starts so I don't over book myself.

Edit: H'okay I sent in my questionnaire. If setting me up with a partner with an equally long name is not possible I understand. I wouldn't mind some one doing some of the letters as I can relate to the creative side of ADD...and I also have six and three letter nicknames. I should have put that in my questionnaire :/

I really like the idea of this swap! This is the first one that has caught my interest and pulled me out of my crafting slump! Anybody else fall into that black hole where there is no time for anything and all the creativity has been sucked out of you? Thats where I am right now, but this swap seems like the light beckoning me back! I will fill out my questionaire at lunch time! Thanks kayrun! You must be my muse for right now because I am in your birthday swap too! LOL

I really want to join this one but I'm not sure I should.  I'll think about it a day or two and hope it doesn't fill up too fast.
