Hmm, I'd like to do this but I'll need to wait until closer to sign-up end to decide. I need to make sure I get the rest of my swaps done. Smiley

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

So I am hoping that we get more interest in this swap, but We have 2 weeks yet to go, and even if we dont, we have enough to swap, just be a small gallery.
