YAY!!!!!  I love epic HP swaps!  I may be prejudice, but I truly believe that HP swaps produce some of the most fab and most creative projects.

This morn I thought of a game, and I must make it before the DH swap.  I'll post a link when I done.  But first to gather supplies. (Luckily I have this box where I just happen to be placing random goodies for someone, and this someone adores HP so my game will have a good home. Wink )

So when we get paired up do we get paired up with people from the same house or another house. I ask because something I'd like to make takes me a little longer than the allowed swap time but I'd love to make it anyway..... so if I knew which house to make it for I could get started. Wink

If they didn't like/need/want something like that I know I could find someone else who would I just wouldn't mind getting started early. Cheesy

There are a great many factors that go into partnering.  Shipping Internationally and Allergies top the list.  Next comes swap and crafting experience, and sometimes age. 

Further along in the partnering process I do take some requests into consideration such as "I'd like to swap with another Hufflepuff", etc., but they are not the only factors involved. 

If you are seriously interested in making something you've dreamed up, I'd recommend making it for yourself.  That gets the crafty urge out of your system, allowing you to move on to other things.  Then when you eventually get partners you should be able to focus on their interests and create something personal, something just for them. I always find it's best to allow yourself to be inspired by your partner because you get some of the most creative crafts that way.

I usually get inspired by my partners but I'm such a slow knitter and had something I'd love to make. Oh well, perhaps I'll make it for someone else. Wink

Thanks for the answer. It's nice to know that more goes into planning than just kind of randomly matching things. I've had some bad experiences with new swappers and young swappers. Sad

I'm still a bit leery of the method of swapping done here--I'm used to everyone sending to the host and then having them swapped around and sent out. No one gets flaked on that way. Though I've only got one full swap done here, I've been swapping and hosting for a few years now elsewhere. I was really disappointed to the point where I just ended up dropping out of my second swap here because I got my partner shifted so many times I wouldn't be able to come up with something personal and good in time to send out. So I'm hoping for some good experiences to come so I can forget about all that!

With a great theme like this, I know it'll be super fun!
