Hello guys and girls!

Well I am desperate to swap again, and having spent a year in the U.S i am in love,  but hey home is home isn't it? so the bonny U.K still has a little place in my heart. So i was thinking maybe we could have a swap based on England and the USA with a 4 point craft requirement. With at least one thing themed UK and one thing themed USA.

what do you think?

p.s. excuse my americaphile making up a wordness. lord knows i can't remember what the correct word is!

Sounds like a neat idea. I know there are lots of people on here who like a certain show or celebrity from either the U.K. or the U.S., they could totally incorporate that!  Also, historical periods like the 50's might have more in terms of Americana, while everyone who's obsessed with the Victorian age might find more up their alley in Anglomania. ( Side note: I DO realize both of these time periods were experienced in both places)  It could also be like a "we don't have that over here" type swap!  So many combinations!

I love personal swaps, accessories, disguises, animals, riding my bike, pen pals, and the Lone Star State.

those are some awesome ideas!
i particuarly like the idea of historical periods! Brit Pop could be a good period to craft for! i know its not really a historical period but it would be fun to craft for!

This swap sounds like a great idea! Being an Anglophile in America (sounds like a silly book title  Cheesy ), I'd love to do this.
lindsoriah, you've got me thinking up Americana and Victoriana crafts already!!

Bliss!

Kind of sad that there's not a real term (or demand!) for "Americaphile". Here in Virginia, "Yankee Lover" don't quite do it.

Yankee lover will do it for me anyday!  Cheesy

I can't quite work out this can work as a swap yet - Do you think we would need equal numbers of Ukers and Usaers (more making up words!) - i guess it depends on what sort of patriotic goodies you wanted. Right now seems a perfect time for those of you in US seeing as craft stores will be on discounts on 4th of July goods (God i miss your craft stores!  Sad

When would be a good time for everyone to swap?

Haha, I just went to the drugstore today and they had a huge bin full of on-sale Fourth of July decorations. Had to resist picking up lots of red, white, and blue star garlands. Smiley

Any time between now and mid-september would be good for me. I have way time to work on swaps over the summer than I do when school starts back up.

Since Americans are so pushy and numerous (god bless us!) an American could choose to be an honorary Brit, and send Brit stuff to another American (who could send Brit stuff back...)

Legit Brits could get American stuff back from Americans. (pick me! pick me!)
