   I am a compulsive lurker. I check Craftster at least once a day, to gain ideas for my own crafts, learn new things and just marvel in other Craftsters' talents. The first place I turn to is the Hot New Projects from All Categories. Eventually I might work my way into the Communities that I am interested in, but if I am doing a quick browse over the site, the projects featured on the home page is my base.
   Recently I have been seeing more and more swaps featured in that section. Today there are three swaps featured under this section taking the place of actual Hot New Projects. I agree that featuring them on the home page is a good idea for those who would be interested in swaps catered toward a very individual interest (i.e. NCIS), and would create awareness for the unique opportunities Craftster provides. Having a separate acknowledgment of Swaps would also free up room to feature actual crafts that get pushed by the wayside when multiple swaps get featured. We already feature Challenges, why not Swaps?

A featured swap section is an interesting idea!

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

I'd like to point out that right now, at the time of this post, 4 out of the 15 "Hot New Projects From All Craftsters" are for Swaps.
