I also have to say welcome microjivvy and onyxnox. And a special welcome to calluna because this is her 100th swap! (I don't know if she has noticed this...)

I feel as though a rendition of Happy Birthday is in order. I'm on my way to 100, but a bit to go Smiley

BTW - question - when we make our items, are we shipping them unpackaged for the receiver to package for abandoning, or do we ship packaged and ready for abandonment?  Or should that be discussed amongst partners???

hmmm... I didn't intend to wrap mine (or expect my partner to wrap mine), I just intended to put a tag on them.

They should definitely be visible as art! I was thinking maybe the wrapping was part of the art.

oh I am so tempted to do this, although I need another swap like a hole in the head.  Then again, who doesn't like a head full of holes? Smiley

I will send in my questionaire tonight.

I would totally love to see people take photos of the pieces at their sites of abandonment!

I can't believe I didn't notice it was my #100!  Shocked I've been looking forward to this (meaningless-outside-of-Craftster) milestone quite a while now! I am glad that this particular swap ended up being by hundredth; it's a good omen for successful art-drops.  Smiley

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

wow 100! congrats and woohoo!  I think there should definitely be an official craftster 'swapper extraordinaire' merit badge for this.

I realized the other day that I just started swapping in January, and by the end of July I will have done 17 swaps.  This makes me officially insane I think but I like it!

I participate in the Toy Society (www.thetoysociety.blogspot.com) and I put the stuffies I make and leave-out-in-plain-sight in ziploc bags. I include a small "Take me home" tag and then a longer note (which I printed directly from their site) and it's up to me to leave personal info like email, etc. The note does direct the finder to "log" their finds in on the Toy Society blog.

BTW - My sister's toys in New Hampshire get found and logged all the time and mine never do in San Francisco. I did watch someone pick one of mine up, but they never followed up with the blog.

If I join (I hope I can squeeze it in) it'll be my 97th swap, so look out, calluna!

The more the merrier!  Grin
And 17 swaps in 7 months is kind of a mind-boggling amount of swapping.
My mind is already boggled because the Benadryl I took an hour ago has taken hold...the loopiness would suggest that I stop trying to post messages for a few hours...

I've been stalking the discussion and am seriously considering joining now, especially with the send out date being perfect with my schedule. I've dabbled in art abandonment and yarn bombing and there is a truly liberating feeling to sharing this part of myself with the world.  Smiley
