I would be willing to join if I could be partnered w/somebody who was willing to both send and receive a plush mr. snuffleupagus and plush Bear in the Big Blue House characters.  I do not care for The Muppets or Fraggle Rock characters, or any other Jim Henson characters.  I wouldn't even enjoy making them. 


Dosn't really sound like this is a swap for you.

Im not saying that at all, this swap is for anyone who likes Jim Henson and his body of work, but your very narrow request field would severely limit what your partner could make or do and I dont feel that it is fair to the supposed partner or to you to say, "Here is your partner, you are only allowed to make this, this, or this and your partner would not even want to try and make something else because she would not enjoy it." 

I do not care for The Muppets or Fraggle Rock characters, or any other Jim Henson characters.  I wouldn't even enjoy making them. 

You said yourself You dont like any other Jim Henson characters. That you wouldnt even enjoy making them. How is it fair of me to tell someone "You only get a Snuffy or a Bear in the big blue house and no other options are allowed" I would never dream of limiting someones creativity like that and I dont think it would be fair to you either since you would not like to do anything else. Most people who sign up for swaps have a wide range of likes and things they would love to have. I personally love Snuffy and think is a bit sad that no one has done something with him on it yet but I would not enjoy a swap knowing that I could do him and only him and that I would receive him and only him in my package. Where is the surprise and excitement in that?

Now Im sure the mods will step in a scold for not staying on point and having this discussion but as organizer I feel that demanding only 2 characters and saying you will only craft those 2 characters in return is not what this swap is about and I respectfully request that you not join.

I think the biggest issue is that you said you wouldn't enjoy making items for your partner. If you won't enjoy making something for your partner then it probably wouldn't be enjoyable to sign up for the swap.

I am interested in this swap for sure and I am gonna think about joining. If I cant join this one I will stalk the gallery. This could be so fun.
And I agree if you would want to make and recieve one thing, It sounds to me like you should create what you would hope to recieve and keep it for yourself.
