Unfortunately, since there was an odd number of people, I had to do a round-robin sort of assignment.  Here are the partner assignments.  The arrow signifies who you will be sending to.  Please send me a PM if there is any confusion.

aada -> karizmatic
karizmatic -> ollieorange
ollieorange -> rangerbeth
rangerbeth -> missmlissa
missmlissa -> sinellia
sinellia-> p.kok
p.kok -> aada

You should be receiving partner info momentarily.  Smiley

Ohh, I wish I could do this one. I love biking!
Sadly, I haven't finished my first swap yet though. Sad

Maybe next time
