Okay ladies. We have an uneven # of crafters for this swap. So, there will be 1 group of 3 partners.

BioformCallie <> madmommymia
Superhooker <> RyverChyld
marcusandila -> lapoli -> bergman [& bergman sends to marcusandila]

Please make sure I sent you the correct partner info; as Im sleepy and apparently just sent myself my own info. LOL Have fun, and as always...Make sure that you send me the DC# when you ship [for international shippers- keep the receipt or whatever to show that you ship.] ALSO, take pictures of what you send to avoid your lovely sent package not being posted --HEY IT HAPPENS TO ME ALOT! lol

ANY QUESTIONS!?!?

I just wanted to express that I have changed to a limit of 24 people total in this swap. That way if we fill up earlier, the swap can start earlier.

From the discussion on this thread, there was concern about such a long crafting period. You will be given feedback once YOUR PARTNER has received. I feel that the longer crafting period should prevent flakers & late senders. Early sending is encouraged of course Smiley It's a small swap with a long crafting period, so there is no reason why anyone could not finish on time; let alone early.
