Hmm... so maybe "Crafting for Aliens"... or what do you think of "International Interests Swap"?

It looks like there'll be enough people interested in this for it to happen. Yay! I'll have to get to work creating a description and questionnaire for the first time Tongue

I like "Crafting for aliens" but maybe people will think we're swapping with outerspace?

very true! And we're not really crafting that much- just 1 medium.

Would it just end up with me sending timtams to everyone Grin
No seriously, I like this idea and will keep an eye to see what comes of it.

Mint Slices and Violet Crumbles are also oddly popular with the non-Aussies.
Oddly though, no one's ever gone "Jeez, I'd love to try some Vegemite"

I've heard of a few people in the US that just adore vegemite, but I admit that I really have no idea what it even is! Could you explain it? Violet crumbles sound like they'd be tasty.

It's a sandwich spread
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegemite

Vegemite is the waste product leftover from making beer - an extract of brewer's yeast. It's sticky, it's black, it's REALLY salty, and it's OMG so good on bread, on toast, with eggs, with cheese oh merciful zeus is it beautiful in a toasted cheese sandwich.

Hmmm... sounds quite interesting! I would be interested in trying it one day.

I have visions of you organising this swap, and purposefully partnering yourself with an Aussie, saying "Send me your pretty coins with the wacky animals on the front. And bury them in a jar of Vegemite"
Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

If I were to do this swap, I don't know what I'd ask for, actually. I don't 'do' stamps nor coins (though I do have both tucked away in little boxes in my cupboard)....

I have a question, Say i collect matchbooks from hotels, restaurants etc, and my partner collected or wanted chocolate. how would you make sure each got equal amounts because it would be abit hard to go by $$$.

I like it. I've been in a few "My Country..." rounds (I even organized one of those ongoing ones Wink), and they've been a lot of fun. I think this would be great too, though with a slightly different twist! I think I will PROBABLY join..

Oddly, the US/non-US participants always seems to work out, but it's been done before with two different signup lists - say you want 24 participants, so you make a list of 12 US spots and a list of 12 non-US spots, and you fill them as they signup. If the US list is too numerous, whoever is at the end becomes  "waitlisted" - and (I just thought of this part) if the swap closes with too many US-er's, you could ask if anyone would be willing to swap with different US regions! The only problem with this is that all non-US participants will be swapping with US participants. . . (in fact, I once asked to be on the US list, since though I am Canadian, I live right by the border.)

Phew! Sorry. I hope that isn't too wordy, it happens to be the middle of the night.

Oh... also: Crafting for Aliens sounds like it involves alien-themed crafts. And by alien I mean little green men from Mars type Wink .
