We had loads of fun during round one... anyone up for round 2?

For those who aren't familiar with this swap, the idea is to find something in common with your partner and craft a couple small items for them based on that.  Then when your partner posts their pics, they also tell everyone what it is that you have in common.  Kind of a fun way to get to know some of our fellow craftster-ers a little better.

I'm thinking of starting sign ups in mid Feb with send outs probably mid - end of March.

I could be up for this -- I like the idea of the later timing better.

    Later timing is best for me, too. And just to clarify...we pick our own partners? Like the invite kind of swap? Or is this a blind date kind of party  Grin

    This is not an IYP, but that's not a bad idea for a future swap.  Wink

    This sounds like it could be a lot of fun. I'd be interested if I have a slot open.

    stillatthetop- If there is someone in the swap that you want to be partnered with, or you invite a craftster friend to the swap and wish to be partnered with them, I'm sure we can accommodate you if both parties are on board with it.

    How about starting sign ups the week of Feb 24, going thru mid March?  S/O would be beginning - mid April. I'm kind of anxious to get this up and going!  Cheesy

    Any thoughts?
