oneredboot - I'm glad you're so excited!  Whomever gets you for a partner will be lucky!!

Just sent my info in.  So excited!!!

This sounds like such a great idea!

I'm considering signing up for the Mini 12 days instead of the full, so I can do this one too!

A few questions...I don't really need another stocking LOL  Would it be ok to mention that to my partner - I'd hate for them to spend a ton of time on the stocking itself when I have a set of themed ones we use already.

The swap sizes - do you have a rough idea of total hours (and/or dollar value) for the 3 different categories?  Or do we decide that with our partners?

Question - for the check ins - do you mean by e-mail or PM, or will posting in the thread be sufficient?  If by the first two, will there be some reminder, because I probably will need reminders (damn my aging dying brain cells).  Otherwise, I am totally in!
