I know a lot of people from Frugal Swap 1 are already rubbing their fiendish (and frugal) little hands together over the thought of a round 2, but I wanted to get a general sense of who's interested.

Potentially thinking of opening sign-ups endish of March, partners on the 1st of Aprilish, send-outs beginning of May?  Probably stick with 1 medium, 3 smalls - nothing too overwhelming, along with the 'please use your stash' strong recommendation.

Any takers? Any thoughts in general?

I can't wait.  Round 1 was so fun and educational.  I can't wait to see everything that happens in round 2.

I'm definitely in as long as someone would be willing to be partnered with me considering I might send late due to having a baby right around send-outs.  My goal would actually be to craft as quickly as possible once we're partnered and then send right away so that doesn't happen.  And also, stick to the requirements without a bunch of spoiling.  It's super tempting to me every time, but I won't be able to afford the time this round.  If I stick to my rule from last time, I'll craft everything from stash with a $5 allowance if I happen to need something new.  So I guess there could be a bit of spoiling in the way of supplies, but I doubt I'll feel up to super-crafting when I'm nearly nine months pregnant.

As I said before, I am happy to be your partner.  Smiley  Send late, send early.  I don't mind at all.  Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!

Thank you, Flower!!!
We'll see how things go up until sign-ups.  I'm starting to get really large and uncomfortable, but I usually get antsy towards the end of my pregnancies so a swap might just be the thing to keep me busy without making me go into labour early or something.  And definitely one good thing is that if we decided on being partners prior to the end of sign-ups, we could start crafting early. Cheesy  And the end of this pregnancy is at the end of our winter...which means it will be muddy here and I still won't be able to get out much.  Being cooped up in April totally sucks here..it would be nice to have something to do. 
I'm not signing up for any other swaps anyway...just this one or I wait for post-baby to do any more.
