I have a ton of corks and baubles around... I would love to have a swap for altered corks... what does anyone think?  Maybe create 3 corks per partner, option to have 2 partners?  I have never ran a swap before, though I have been swapping intermittently for years...

I'd love to do this. I'm not a wine drinker, but my uncle recently gave me a handful of corks when I was talking to him about the crafts that could be done with them. Running a swap is pretty easy, especially if there's a smaller group. You could totally do it!

Ooh I think this would be super fun. I really like ornaments that can be hung up all year-round.

 Cheesy Grin
Great... hope to garner up some more folks... I collect corks when I see them at the thrift stores, we do make wine occasionally and they are relatively cheap from the brewing stores.  I am not a big drinker either, never was but one night of too much tequila with another nurse friend of mine was enough to make me feel sick anytime I even think of drinking any alcohol... But I love what I see with some of these corks.  Maybe even make more than three... what are your thoughts ?

This is an awesome idea! I cannot join - too much on my plate - but just wanted to put in my two cents of praise!

Maybe, internet access is only on public computers for the most part, but I am free of previous swaps, just waiting for feedback on one.

Wish there was more interest...  Should I just do it and hope for the best?
