So lately my husband has been kind of cranky whenever I talk about my active swaps.  After bugging him for awhile, he finally admitted that HE wanted to get stuff in a swap.  I thought there are probably a lot of us out there with a significant other who is secretly jealous of all our awesome swap goodies.  This swap would be dedicated to them.  You'd be paired up and craft for each other's hubby/boyfriend/significant other. 

Does this sound like something anyone else would be interested in?  I'm pretty sure similar swaps have been done in the past.  I'd be willing to organize (I have organizing experience).

For those interested, what time frame would work well?  Size of swap?  Questions to be put on questionnaire?

Shocked I had a big reply written out when my phone timed out and I lost it all. sadness. anyways, I'd be interested. I'd rather do it before mid august but maybe late june to late july? I dont know. I don't have too much planned this summer. Smiley

and for size are you wanting to do a [number] point or a [number] small, med, and large swap? I would think the questions would depend on what type your guy is. mine is a total nerd so I'd want my partner to know his fav games, cartoons, game console etc. if you hace a macho car type those questions wouldn't help much though.

I'm an uber nerd that loves Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Supernatural, and Marvelverse (to name a few.)

I would possibly be in - I like crafting for guys, and I seem to be lacking a lot of ideas for my boyfriend - though I do know many things he'd probably enjoy receiving!

Very cool.  Looking at my summer schedule, I don't think I'll be able to do much with this swap until late summer/early fall.  Maybe September.  I'm having some major surgery at the end of July so I doubt I'll want to be too crafty.

I would definitely be interested in this one! I think it'd be a nice surprise for him and a neat change to craft for someone's significant other. I'd be willing to participate if sign ups were around July or August.

This sounds like an awesome idea! I'd most likely be keen!


glitter it, no seriously, just add glue and glitter, no one will notice
