I'm thinking of this for spring and would love to know if there is any interest or if anyone has ideas on how to make this swap even more fun....

My thought is to have this be a secret swap.  One of the items should be a mask or mask-related object and the other(s) would be something... else. I'm thinking to maybe have a theme.  Any thoughts on this?  Renaissance Festival -type items?  Fairy tales? Phantom of the Opera?   Grin

Anyway, we would all "unmask" ourselves at the end of the swap.  This might work especially well if we sent our swap items without names (or usernames) on the return addresses, just the address only, and then have the "Reveal" later.  The organizer could even do the reveal if that would simplify things.  Then everyone basically finds out at the same time who had whom and who sent what.

Sound fun?  Sound hokey?  Input please!  Cheesy

I think "Masquerade Fantasy" would be a good theme.   Smiley

OoooOooh... Fantasy!  How perfect!  That can encompass pretty much anything a player could imagine, right?  Grin

Thanks, Ludi!

Wonderful idea! Would there be a list of who was involved posted in the thread, or would that be a surprise as well?

Hmmm.... interesting thought, elyxandra.  Since craftster rules require all participants to post in the thread (at least once), I think keeping them a secret probably wouldn't work.  I wish it could though!  How awesome would that be?  Grin

Just because you post in the thread, doesn't mean you have to say you signed up. If everyone just said this might be interesting or something like that and then when you add names it would look like this
1. ********
2.*****
3. *******
etc.
Everyone might have an idea, but it wouldn't be for sure.

I was in a secret swap, and we had so much fun talking about "may or may not have sent", "may or may not have just blown up my project", "may or may not even be in this swap"... and we got to pick pseudonyms for swap... and it wasn't a partner swap, but a giant round robin, though I think either would work.

I would be in!  I loooooove that scene in the Labyrinth.  Cheesy
