Good, good. It wouldn't have been the end of the world, I have quite a few things that just need to be documented but at the moment my digital camera doesn't cooperate with the computer that I have access to, so it'd be all cellphone pictures.

I already have a theme idea, I'm excited. Hopefully I can get in on this for sure.

Oh, one more thing.. Is it limited to a maximum of two pieces per person? I'm looking at a bigger puzzle (28 pieces) and I want to make sure my partners wouldn't resent me, as well as not having to do the majority of it myself. I guess it depends on how many partners there are in a group. Then that brings me to wondering if I could sign up for two groups and send half of the pieces to group 1 and the other half to group 2?

If you sign up for two groups, depending on how it works out you'll be swapping with 6-8 people (groups of 4 or 5).  It's totally up to you and your partners to decide how many pieces you want to swap with each other.  Last round I was in two groups of 4 and I had 10 pieces finished, but the most pieces I swapped with anyone was two.  I kind of doubt that you'll get a 28 piece puzzle done in one round, but if this keeps being a popular swap I'm sure there will be more rounds, especially since some people did have finished puzzles last round and are back for more!

ETA:  Looks like you're well over your 15 posts Adore Horror, so send your questionnaire on the 26th and you'll be in! (I think we must have a time difference, because when I look at your profile it says you joined the 25th, but your little avatar says the 26th)

Yup, it's true. I signed up around 2 am, being on the east coast means I'm from the future. I can't wait for this swap! If I get 7 partners I could send them each a square chunk of 4, which could either be one big piece or four normal ones. Hopefully that's not too much. If it is, I'm not (terribly) stubborn and could definitely get a smaller puzzle. Sometimes I get a bit over ambitious, I wouldn't want to stress anyone. I'll try to save that for my own endeavors.  Smiley

I went by the Dollar Tree yesterday.  They had some puzzles that have a frame graphic around the edge.   I have not put it together yet so no pics.

You could always keep the big puzzle and do more than one round/do some pieces yourself/have friends and family do some so it gets finished.  That's what I'm doing!  Although I am impatient and just want it to be done...I love the finished puzzles!

Mine's 60 pieces so I'm not planning that this round completes the puzzle.  I figure I'll do a lot of the pieces, have some friends do some, and do others in future rounds.

Though that was what I had planned for round 1 and I ended up doing all the left over pieces myself.

Eek, mild panic. I forget, having recently moved house, that I don't have the convenience I did in London. I live in a small beach town at the bottom of the country with no 'proper' craft stores. I can find wooden blank jigsaws online but guess I can make my own out of card? What are others using as blanks or are wooden fine? I'm assuming it'll be the really thin mdf stuff but don't want to make it difficult for people to work on.

I'll probably be getting mine off of the internet, or I might glue two or three layers of cereal box cardboard together and make my own, I haven't quite decided yet. I've never done that before so it could be a total disaster. Maybe I'll try a small one and let you know if it's worth the effort?

I finally caved in and sent my questionaire in.  This time I found a kid's puzzle w/ a tray I'm not sure if I'll decorate the frame first or wait til I get the finished pieces.  My theme is Comic Book Superheroines (Wonder Woman, Storm, Batgirl, etc)

Fickle - THat is an AWESOME theme!

What are others using as blanks or are wooden fine? I'm assuming it'll be the really thin mdf stuff but don't want to make it difficult for people to work on. 
I used a wooden puzzle last round and I'm using an identical one this round, it worked fine for me, actually reall well, but a few of the pieces cracked in transit, though my partners were ablpe to fix them with no problem.

I'll probably be getting mine off of the internet, or I might glue two or three layers of cereal box cardboard together and make my own, I haven't quite decided yet. I've never done that before so it could be a total disaster. Maybe I'll try a small one and let you know if it's worth the effort?
I did something similar for apuzzle atc swap, where we had a piece of card baord the same size as an atc and cut into four pieces. Even though it was small and the pieces were smaller I had a pretty tough time cutting them. The pieces turned out bent up and with rough edges.
I used a blade thingy in a handle and a pair of scissors.  so maybe my technique wasn't good for cutting.
