this is just a silly little thing I thought of today - probably a result of not enough sleep and too much headcold meds  Undecided

(Note - number of pages vary depending on size of swap and length of crafting time. Also, topics may show up earlier or later than page number listed.)

Pre-swap
page 1 - intro sign up post and "hold for partners" posts
pages 2 - 4 - Should I / shouldn't I join? I joined!!
pages 4 - 7 - I can make ---- does anyone want that? (and the related, "I'd like a ---- is anybody offering that?")
pages 8 - 10 - I can't wait for partners! Is it too late to signup?

Early swap
Pages 11 - 13 - I got the BEST partner! I've got a lot of ideas! I'm crafting NOW (tomorrow, this weekend)

Middle swap
Pages 14 - 21 - Supply shopping. Swap "mad lib" posts. Project roadblocks. I can't decide what to make!

Late swap
Pages 22 - 30 - I sent! I've got swap anxiety! You sent? ACCCKKKK I'm so far behind! OMG, the postage $$!!
Pages 31 - 36 - I received!!! Where's the gallery? My package's lost. I'm late! I can't find my camera!
Pages 37 - 40 - Thanks to the organizer & my partner - the BESTEST ever!

Post swap -
Pages 41 - 44 - Should we do a round 2? Who wants to organize? When's signups?

And that just about sums it up. Grin

I've thought about this from time to time.  I'm glad I'm not the only nut case on here who goes through these thought processes.

 Tongue  It's so true!  And it's like, unless the people who are writing specifically mention something particularly swap related, you could just mix and match the comments from different swaps!  You are funny!
