Yeah, I chose medium for the same reason someone else mentioned.  I have time constraints, but I love this swap and wanted to join.  I also like to spoil, but know that I may not have time to, so didn't want to commit to the large.  In the end, it probably will be though.   Wink

Aye, medium for me too. Big enough to be able to put lots of thought into but not too big that it might get overwhelming. Its juuuuuuuust the right size  Wink

Are there many/any people choosing the small? I'm considering signing up for that, but I know I can't do a large, so I'm torn between small and medium. . . .

I chose to commit to a small for my 10 year old son, but I figured once I get a partner we can discuss extras.  Wink

I noticed a few asked, but I haven't seen the answer (I've only browsed the first 19 pages of comments): Do the items HAVE to fit inside the stocking... or can there be overflow? Thanks.

jexxican: Did you get your pinterest organization thing figured out? I was just thinking: "Name it Zee Xmas Swap" or something, so it ends up last... so it will mess up your even 15 items, but IT will be your "odd man out"... and as others suggested, just delete the entire thing once the swap is over. (Sorry if this was already resolved... I'm just now reading through all pages).

Also... Gah!!! I am just now thinking of how I answered my questionnaire and realizing things I forgot... really hope I remember later! or... or... hmm. Pinterest... yeah. Maybe that will work.

Lots of people send more than will fit in a stocking as well as bigger than can fit in the stocking. I don't think anyone has a problem with packages overflowing with goodies that don't fit.

The last two times I did this swap my partners and I all had overflow. Some items in theory would have fit, but in the end...not so much. I'm really getting excited now, hey people, hey, hey it's the 18th, we're getting nearer!

NO! Don't get too close, Deadline! I need more time! Well, not really, but for some reason lately I haven't been anxious for swaps to close and Partner Time. WHAT!?! I know, it's crazy, I'm like the only one, but I have a couple other swaps to finish for (that should all go out tomorrow, thank goodness!) and we just did our initial shop for our Halloween costumes. We do family themes each year and my Man really gets into it. So for the next 6 weeks I'll be doing Halloween on top of the stocking swap, on top of organizing--and therefore participating in--the OPSs. But where am I going to find a tabard pattern for a 3 year old? And why doesn't the HobLob carry purple double-knit fabric?!
