Considering! I was a total "OH YEAH", but now I am moving next weekend (yay!), so I do believe I'll wait until after the dust settles to see if I can handle a swap right now. You aren't going to sneakily close up early at any point, are you?

No worries psyche, I'm not closing early at all. I like to leave it open as long as possible, I love big swaps! I'll just have to get a coorganizer if it gets too big!

I'd love to join this but I've never made anything steampunk nor would I even know where to start Sad Perhaps I'll tinker around a bit and see what I can figure out, before I send in a questionnaire!

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.

Think the feel of Jules Verne, Sherlock Holmes, Wild Wild West, Anything Victorian, Technology with gears and steam and wind ups, elegant brass instead of cold steel, and the ever present gears and watches. (Hey, they're fun accents!) Take a peek at a few steampunk swap galleries for inspiration, just hit images only to narrow it down a bit. And heck, anything almost can be punked up! Hope you decide to join in, it's fun.
