Also, I encourage contacting your partner after they have been assigned, even if you don't have any questions, it's always nice to say hi.

Also, don't forget to PM me when you have sent and when you have received as well as to post pictures in the forthcoming gallery.

If you have any questions about the swap please do not hesitate to PM me (Ryn).

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

So excited for this swap!
Going to think about my questionnaire answers then send it in.
I don't usually do swaps that are this many points, but I think I can do it.

Thank you for the long sign up period!!  I need to get some swaps out the door.  One swap got lost between my house and Canada ;( so i need to resend that as well.  But I will have a slot open soon Wink

I'll echo the thank you for the long sign up.  I need to figure out if I can swing a swap - it all depends on when I send out the swaps I have ongoing right now!

And YAY Seuss!  I <3 the Lorax.

I'm in.  This'll be great.  I love the landscapes and architecture and creatures and gadgets of Dr. Seuss.

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!
