I suspect one of these has to be in the works but I couldn't find a thread about it. Smiley

I'd be interested in doing something that involved a fun Valentines package. I was thinking two small craft items, an edible item and maybe a sweet little paper valentine or card. You know--something fairly simple but really fun and feel good.

So is anything like this happening? Is anyone interested?

I like the way you think! There seem to be a few threads floating about regarding valentines....but I'm not sure if anything is set in stone yet.

There was an idea for a Lonely Hearts type of Valentines swap (for all the single people), but no one's has been able to organize it.

I might be up for something along these lines, though, depending on timing!

I wouldn't technically qualify for the lonely hearts club but maybe if we kept the swap as just a general-send a little crafty love to another kindred spirit--it would work. Smiley I would even organize if there was some interest--at least 10 people. It doesn't have to be a huge swap but a few folks would be nice. Ok--we'll see.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

So is anyone on this thread up for organizing?  Normally I'd offer, but I'm organizing the gigantic bookmark swap, which has 59 swappers (sending 190 packages!), so I'm rather busy at the moment...

I don't mind organizing, but I don't want to step on anyone's toes.  Let me know!

We're running out of time, though.  We'd better get a move on if we're going to do this!  Wink

Alllrighty!  I'll work on the sign-ups tonight, and hopefully have them posted for tomorrow.  Anyone want to co-org?

How does this sound?  Please leave your thoughts and ideas!

**Short sign-up (little less than a week)
**almost 3-week crafting period (so we can send around Feb. 5th and give the PO time to deliver by Valentine's)
**2 point swap  --->  one medium, or two smalls
**plus treats/sweets and a handmade valentine

I think this one could be pretty cute. My boyfriend (of two and a half years) and I split up over Christmas, so I think I'll be needing some crafty love for Valentine's day!
