Hey there, is anyone interested in another Invite Your Partner swap in a month or two? 

Here's how it works:

In this swap, you can contact anyone and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together.

As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to post stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. In the past, the suggestion was one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like.

It is really fun! If you enjoy longer swaps with quite a bit of effort and communication (and fab crafting!), I'd encourage you to give it a go Smiley

If there's a Craftster whose work you admire, and who you think you'd get on with well, then you can just ask them (I have usually asked people I've never chatted with before). Also, looking through previous IYP galleries might give you some ideas for people to ask, and what they enjoy making.

But if you feel a bit too shy to ask someone, usually the organiser will create a list of people who are interested in joining but haven't got a partner yet, and people team up from there. Smiley
