My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

ummm and just when I said I was done with swapping for awhile. I just found the book though and have started reading it last night so this might just be meant to be.

Did you all see the gallery from the last swap? I wasn't around Craftster back in 2006, but there was some pretty cool stuff. The gallery's here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89181.0

I think the cleverest item of the whole swap was the item below by Pumper. I'm usually not one for lifting other people's ideas, but this is so clever I may need to make something of a similar nature for me and my swap partner.

Oh my gosh!  I'm totally going to have to join this swap.  However, I'm going to have to wait until I get another swap out of the way.  But this gives me incentive to send out early.  I'm so glad that there is a month of sign up time.  Hopefully it will give me time to read the book as well.

I think I'll wait to send in my form until I am done with my other swap.
