I've also been wanting to try a random swap. But I'm more intimidated by this sort of swap for some reason. We just make things we feel our partners would enjoy, right?

I'm going to go look in old galleries before I commit.

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!

Pearlipie - honestly it's fun!  I went through my partners questionnaire, looked at their wist and then post stalked a bit and found things I thought they would like.  I tend to make too much sometimes, but it is fun!

I really like not being limited to a theme or an amount.  Sometimes I get great ideas for my partner, but they have nothing to do with the theme I'm supposed to be crafting!!

Also, if you are worried about how much you can make, just be honest with your partner...say, "I'm not going to be able to craft a gigantic package, more just medium sized."  Its all about communicating with your partner.
