Oh boy, another great swap. Smiley
I am going to think about this one for a bit as I have a lot of projects I need to work on.
But, this sounds so fun!

eta: What a great idea about donating the stocking.  My quilt guild makes about 60 stockings each year to give to kids in need and they love them. We also fill them with the little soaps and lotions from hotels and other little trinkets, gift cards, etc.  It is a great service project.

So I'm messing with my wist, updating it for the first time in forever, and I'm getting a message saying that they are shutting wists down at the end of the month.  Is everyone else getting that same message, is it a real thing?  lol  Do I need to switch stuff over to my pinterest that I've used like twice?

Uh oh. I went to my wists and tried to add an item. Got the same message as you:

That is the only thing I can find on the matter. There is nothing on their site, nothing on Gawker (their backer), nothing anywhere on the Internets (as of right now) that I can find. This is weird - I know a lot of people still use Wists. I don't know if they've been hacked, or if this is just one of the lamest, quietest shutdowns ever.

That aside, I'll be doing the same as you, princesspimp81, clicking on every link from my Wist and adding it to my bare-until-now Pinterest. Thanks for mentioning this - you have saved my favorites.

Sorry if this got off topic. I was reading through, considering the swap.

I really really REALLY want to do this one, but am only letting myself fill out the q once I make some great progress on the MAQ swap. Gives me some great motivation this way! Wink Cheesy

Yeah that's what I get too Sarcastra.  I didn't delete anything from my wist, but since I don't really understand that message I just put the stuff on my pinterest and then added new stuff to the board I made called Crafster Wishes.
