I stumbled upon this Pick N Choose swap from 2008 I think and it seemed like it would be a fun idea. Basically each participant listed 5 themes and then 10 items they would like to receive and their partner then picked five items to craft, one for each theme. I think it might be easier to list 10 themes maybe so you would have more to choose from, and possibly more items, with having a requirement of listing 6 small items, 6 medium items, and 4 large items or something, but the idea of it still seems like it might be a fun swap, that way you are getting to group a lot of interests into one swap. The swap I was organizing just finished up so I could organize this one if there is much interest. Would anyone be interested? Smiley

I like the basic idea but not the huge amount of items.

I was going to say the same thing as MareMare.  The concept is great, but that's an awful lot of items.  Maybe one each of a small, medium and large?

I like the idea too.  But, I like 1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large better.

Yeah, five items is alot, especially since in the original they have no stipulations on size. We could do three items like you suggested, with still keeping the idea of it (pick and choose themes and items).

So swappers would choose three of the themes and craft a total of one large, one medium and one small using those items, right?  So, for example:

MareMare is my partner and I choose her themes of: owls, barbie and skeletons.  So I could make a large owl wallhanging, a medium barbie hoopla and a small set of skeleton earrings.  Is that right?

This sounds really fun and intriguing. I also like the small, med, large.  I can't join any more swaps until August., though.  I'm leaving for a great vacation very soon!

I would be up for this! I like the idea of picking themes. I feel like I always do a better job if I get to choose because I would generally choose something that either I like too or feel confident crafting for. Of course you could challenge yourself too!

I'm in a pretty big swap until the end of the month, so persoanally I'd either want this to not start for a week or two (crafting time) or a really long crafting time, but that's just me! Smiley
