Thanks, Mel, for your input. I was just about to post too! Here's what I had to say, basically repeating everything MissMel just said...

I'm kinda interested in this swap, don't know if I'd really be able to craft this month though. Questions though: Do you have to claim someone (I most likely would of course, but just asking)? Likewise, it's not guarranteed that someone will claim you is it? Just a little confused on the whole setup of this thing. It sounds like fun though!
If you sign up for this swap, you have to make at least one "claim," for which you have 2 weeks to craft for. You can make the claim through the last day of the month, so you can technically have 2 weeks into June to craft. It is possible for someone to not be claimed, but I don't think it has been an issue in any pinterest swap yet. As the organizers, we highlight people who claim more than they have been claimed, encouraging people to claim them. Just make sure you have lots of different mediums on your pinterest and that it's pretty decently filled out. The more inspiration people have to choose from, the more they will be inspired. Usually we have a lot more people than this signing up and claiming by now. I think May is just a busy month for a lot of people?

I want to finish my April claims before I make May claims.  I always try to claim people who haven't been claimed at the end of the month Smiley

Ok, just signed up. Hello, all!
I really like this swap because it's so flexible. I've been doing it since November and don't think I've ever not been claimed. Usually, it's not too big a problem. That being said, I do try to only claim people who haven't been claimed, or people who have made more claims than they've been chosen for. I'll probably only have time for one or two this month, but I just couldn't resist.

Jexxican, I might consider changing the picture to a Pinterest-related one, but that's just me. I did scan the swaps list several times before spotting it though.

I just sent my April claims today and I think I am ready to make a claim for this month. I just hope I have the right fabrics for it.

Thank you for the feedback. It is Pinterest related, see it's a giant PIN made of PINS, but it's not the logo or anything. Here I was trying to clever. I should stop that. Let's see what else I can find. Thanks again!

Oh, I totally got it once I spotted it! Just, my eyes slide by it when I was looking for Pinterest. I'm excessively visual, I guess. I don't even read the swap names unless I really have to; I'm always drawn to the pictures.

I have been debating signing up this month, but I think I need to sit it out. I am finishing my last April claim, and I have another swap to finish up. And, with two surgeries scheduled next week ( dad and my dog), and then having to work 9 days in a row, I wont even have time until May 28. So... Ill be ready for June! Sorry to sit this month out,  but totally looking forward to getting back into it in June!
