Has anyone ever experienced this? 
I just finished my first swap and had a blast doing it.  But now that I've sent and received, I think I have crafting / swap hangover.  I have a bunch of ideas floating around in my head, and a couple of items to mend, but cannot even look at it.  I can't even manage to clean off my crafting table from the last push to get eveything done. 
If anyone has been through this, how did you get past it?

I usually take a couple days break from crafting, then start cleaning up my craft space (always good to jumpstart the creativity again).  Then I join another swap Grin

I've been wondering the same thing. I'm almost ready to send in my very first swap. Just today I finished up all the major crafting so as I was cleaning up and putting everything away a bit of sadness washed over me.  It was like when you're on vacation having a great time and then all of a sudden you've reached your last night and you're packing up to go back home to the everyday hustle of life.
