Oh, yes, how many points are you thinking, missiejean?

I do like the group swapping idea, but how would the group know they aren't all crafting the same quote for the same person? I've never been in a group before... Just curious Smiley

I was thinking 4 point swap. I will have to look at some partner/group ones and see how they are run.

This will be my first organizing swap, so be patient with me!!

Haha

ALRIGHT... How does this sound (and please be honest!!)

We could do (so everyone gets multiple "smalls") a sending "tree" type thing
EXAMPLE:

GROUP 1
Person 1-2,3,4
Person 2-1,3,4
Person 3-1,2,4
Person 4-1,2,3

Group 2
Person 5-6,7,8
Person 6-5,7,8
Person 7-5,6,8
Person 8-5,6,7

and so on. That way, everyone would receive at least 3 items... but it all depends on how many people will actually sign up!

It looks like right now, about 15 people would be interested.
Since this will be my first swap, I am going to limit it to 24 people.

I have to finish my current swap (should be sending this weekend and hoping for quick feedback so I can get this one up and running  Grin )

Okay, I get who sends to who, but I still don't get how your group knows what the others are crafting for you so you don't wind up with 3 of the same quote  Huh

You can come up with a list of 9 or more (depending on how many people are in the group) and each person gets to pick from a list of different quotes?

like...

Person 1 would have 3 or more different grouping of quotes? Does that make sense?

OR I can go back to the original idea of like a 5 point swap with just one partner?

I'd prefer 1 partner, personally, but it's totally up to you, O Great Organizer  Cheesy

missiejean, thanks for looking into the groups so quickly! Some day I hope to organize a swap, but I am not sure I have it in me Smiley

I know that it is fun to have some element of surprise with swaps, but couldn't the partners talk amongst themselves to make sure that there where no duplicated quotes?

And, being new to quote swapping, would you need to ask for a specific quote or could you say, for example, ask for a quote from FireFly or Presidents, about inspiration, love, hope, etc.?

I would think with a more general field to choose from, the chances of getting multiples of the same exact quote would be slim.

Anyway, I am game for either, just throwing my 2 cents in Grin

I think what I want to do I can do for 3 people or 1, so I'm ok either way.  It sounds like fun.  Maybe we could write in our questionnaires quotes for partner 1, 2, 3 etc.  so we have a few quotes per people?
