So I just participated in the Secret Santa swap and it was so fun!!  I remember there being a Crafty Detective swap before too where it was all a secret, but there hasn't been one in over a year.  Is there going to be another one anytime??

I remember seeing that around too. I did the Secret Swap in the summer and the Secret Santa and I am finding these kind of swaps to be very fun!!

I had a lot of fun in the Secret Santa swap too and wouldn't mind doing another one at some point.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I'd be interested in crafty Detective swap.  It was fun last time I participated.  I think the mystery is half of fun!

Sounds fun.. I could pretend I was Sherlock Holmes the whole time.  Tongue and that would mean I was sexy for just a bit.

The Crafty Detective IS fun!  here's how it works just in case you want a short version:

Swappers sign up and are assigned a person to craft for (you may or may not be assigned the person crafting for you).  You get their questionnaire and it needs to be thorough as you can't ask any questions.  Although you can find their Craftster friends and ask them questions. Wink  Then you make them items and send a couple of packages throughout the swap.  The first one I did, I mailed my packages to a friend in Georgia, who then mailed them to my partner for me.lol  It was a little more expensive, but made it fun for me!  You can just remove your location from your profile if you want to play it super safe, or check and see how many peeps in the swap are from your state.  I made a point of not looking at postmarks, so it was more fun.


If there are a lot of people interested, I'd be willing to do another one if not one else is interested in organising.  But I wouldn't want to start it until mid-January.
