Anybody interested in organizing another round of a Jim Henson swap?  A post on the Toys, Dolls, and Playthings board inspired me to get my Henson on!   Grin  I NEED to make Kermit, Big Bird, Mr. Snuffleupagus, Bear in the Big Blue House and friends, etc.

I'd LOVE a Jim Henson swap. Life is too crazy right now for me to try to organize, but I'd love to participate!

 The galleries in the past for this have been amazing. If it wasn't a huge swap I would do it.

Were you offering to organize? If not, I could organize if there is enough interest. Smiley

Oops. Sorry. I have only organized once before and I am currently co-organizing an ongoing swap. I would much rather just participate.  Wink

How does 4pts sound, with a one medium or one large requirement? And you can always discuss with your partner if you want to do more.

When would you all want signups, sendouts, etc.?

4 points, 1 large, 1 medium, more if you and your partner want more, sounds good to me.  Sign ups whenever is easiest for you.

Since there isn't alot of interest how does a one week sign-up sound? I was thinking 2/20-2/27 for signups, maybe sooner if I can find the extra time to get it posted. Then 4 weeks crafting time with sendouts on 3/27?

Oh I would love a Henson swap.  Gotgrey.... I'd take a Snuffy off your hands if there are no other takers Smiley  Love all your stuffies (the kids still have HUGE discussion on who gets which stuffie from you as I hang on to my toothless going, "he's mine so don't even ask")
OK, this and a dragon swap... my only two swaps for a while....

Hey wait a minute yall I organize the Jim Henson swaps. Its etiquette to ask the prior organizer if they want to organize the swap again. I was planing on doing another one after the 2 Im organizing are finished.

I was just offering to organize to be helpful since no one else was offering. No one has ever asked me and I don't expect anyone to as I don't own the swaps I organize.

Looking forward to seeing the gallery.

 Three points is perfect! I always see the most awesome swaps but then they make them so large I get intimidated away. You never know how crazy life can get and mine tends to do that.  Tongue

 I sent one to her last week as well and haven't heard back. Hope all is okay with her!

 And I might not be able to join now. I might be organizing another swap (just mentioned it a couple hours ago onthe board) and with that plus another swap (IYP) I am going to be in I don't think I could do this one now. So much for trying to plan.  Undecided

I sent one to her last week as well and haven't heard back. Hope all is okay with her!

I was thinking of signups from 4/24 until 5/8, with sendouts on 6/5. Is that too soon? It would only be a 3pt swap with 4 weeks of crafting time. Would that work out for everyone?
