I'm considering organizing my first swap, to be inspired by nonsense authors such as Carroll, Lear, Gorey, Peake, Seuss, etc. 

What do you think?

Suggestions, comments welcome!  Smiley

I probably won't be able to get this going until early next year, due to my present relatively busy schedule!   Smiley

 I was so upset when I had to miss the Gorey swap so I would be up for this depending on the timing. Right now with the holidays I am already up to my elbows in crafting! Next year would be perfect because  could treat myself to a little crafting that isn't holiday oriented.  Wink

I agree. This sounds like it could be lots of fun to start off the new  year. I'll have to keep a watch out, and see how it fits my fancy in the new year.  I like organizing. It's a fun way to get to know lots of swappers more personally. I think it's great you are thinking about taking the plunge.

I LOVE Carroll and Dr. Seus!  The 1st of the year would be awesome for me.  I'm super busy right now.

I like the idea of 'nonsense' but I have only read Dr. Suess and that was over 50 years ago. lol
