So with the great lack of swaps open for sign ups right now, all I can do is think of swaps that I wish would happen. And one that I really wish would happen???
 HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON!
I LOVED the movie. I've been addicted to the show since episode one. I even read one of the books and I think I would enjoy reading more of them.
So how many others out there would like to see this swap happen? I would be happy to run the swap, if there was interest. Sadly it looks like most people aren't up for swapping with Christmas next month Sad So is anyone up for one after Christmas maybe?

OOOOMMGGGGG!!! I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!!!!!! I would love me some Toothless and Hiccup!!  Grin

I don't know if there will be enough interest in just a "HTTYD" swap so maybe open it up to a Dreamworks movie swap?

I swear I love you the more I see you Isikkahjai Wink lol. SAME HERE!
Well there was already enough interest to do I round one that had an great looking gallery from what I have been told. And between the how to train your dragon book, comics, movie, and now TV show, I'm REALLYYYYYY hoping we can get enough interest to do a round two.
But I was talking to three of my friends on here and they said they would be up to join if it was opened to a "Dragons in general" swap...  Which do you think sounds better? A Dragons swap, or a dreamworks swap?

Well that's three people at least lol. But since I can't swap with gotgrey due to allergies, I'm not sure we would even be able to do a proper round robin Sad I would love to open it right now (there are like no good swaps going on besides the ATC) but if I do a swap I want it to at least have enough for everyone to have there own partner....
Come on people, the holidays aren't that busy, right? I'm sure more of you could do a swap! Wink

That's usually the way it goes with the Holidays, unfortunately. Why do we HAVE to give gifts this time of year anyway? *grumble, grumble*  Embarrassed

Hehehe Smiley I'm so happy people are up for this swap! No one has really said anything about when they would be up for it- So how dose around mid January sound for sign ups? (Since most people are busy December with the holidays.) I'm also thinking a 4 or 5 point swap. How dose that sound to everyone?

Also! Dose anyone know if there was a round 1 HTTYD swap back when the movie came out? I've been told there was but I can't find it. So I don't know if this will be titled as round 1 or 2.

Mid January sounds good to me.  I should have some spots open then.  4 or 5 points sounds good to me.  It shouldn't be hard to fufill those points w/a swap like this.  I for the life of me don't know if there was a round 1 swap when the 1st movie came out.  I too would like to receive a Toothless plushie, as well I would be THRILLED to make a Toothless plushie for somebody else!     Grin

oooh - me, me!!

Anything dragon for me (already got a dragon pinterest board - might have to go get a few more on there Tongue). Love the movie Toothless - the artist who came up with him had most DEFINITELY been round to our house and watched one of our cats - Spike - because they are spitting images Cheesy, but also like the book Toothless (small common-or-garden green dragon that rides in Hiccups' pocket or on his shoulder-can't remember which).

Well it's not even Jan. 1st and a bunch of swaps have already popped up. With more to come I'm sure. So in the hopes of this swap not being lost in the craziness, and haveing more swappers, I plan to postpone this from mid Jan. to mid Feb. instead. Hope you guys don't mind!

Ooh ooh ooh!

Love the movie - my eldest had it as the theme for his 7th birthday and the next year my youngest had it as the theme for his 4th. We've seen all the movies and the live arena show. Just waiting for the tv show to come out over here.

I'm also down with a general dragon swap. Then I wouldn't have to share my goodies with my boys. I started reading the Pern books at age 8, so I'm a dragon fiend from way back!

Bad, bad,  IsikkahJai - Y U NO tell me about this swap?

I'm in whenever we do it!   Grin  I can make both Toothless, and other dragons.  My ex-husband read the Pern series when he was a teenager.  I have the books now (not his set Wink).  Some day I will sit down and read them.

Really odd, I haven't read the Pern series with all the dragons I make.  Guess that will have to be on my used book radar (where I get most of my big run books). 
So if we have enough craft time, I can do a pottery dragon Smiley  Haven't tried toothless anything but I love the cute cuddly squished together rounded face one to stuffie Smiley

Well we had enough interest in the feeler for it, so we're doing a How to Train You Dragon swap Smiley And I said mid-Feb. and mid-Feb. it shall be! Cheesy I'm just waiting for the Valentines weekend to be over to open signups (I figure it's best to wait for the holiday to be over for a better shot at more swappers). So signups will start next week Wink
