Hah...my theme is nature. Ugly bugs, and cute frogs, and singing birds, worms. Of course butterflies...the pretty bugs. Birdhouse and nests. Or birds.

I am so into this swap it is unreal!!! I have already traced my pieces, and plan to trace the two on the back of my envelopes for each member I send...so they can be mailed back correctly, and easily.

This swap can get a bit confusing, if you don't keep track...or if you have little fingers who steal the pieces, including kitty paws.  Grin Darn kitty stinkers, they took half my piano apart this morning, giant upright...woke me up at 6 am  Cheesy But I don't let them in my craft rooms. So don't worry...your stuff will be safe.

Save me a spot - I'll join tomorrow!

I think my puzzle is 36 pieces so I definitely need some more!

It wouldn't be a puzzle swap without Smmarrt!

My response for that, CM3, would be to just put them back in the envie that you received them in. That way the postal stuff/return address would be right there. And in the mean time while they are drying, or such...make a posterboard squares sort of thing...kind of like giant BINGO...and label the squares for the members with stickie notes. Just some thoughts. I hope to keep good track of mine, too.

I try to keep good notes for my contacts on here, but the user names are so unusual  Grin And this place runs fast!

Another idea I had was to trace the puzzle pattern pieces on the back of the notecard that I plan to send with the puzzle pieces. And include all my user info in the card, too. No mix ups there! Puppy makes it home! Cheesy

Great ideas! Thanks. I am all ready to send to! Well except for the piece i need to fish out from under the shelves....the cats had some fun with a dropped piece.

I will join tonight - promise.

As for keeping things straight - I keep everything in the envelope and I jot down words - i.e. green, monsters, cute bugs - so that while I am preparing a place to work, if I find something on my craft/kitchen table, I stick it in the envelope. Every swapper should put their name on the back, a number and a directional arrow, if needed. The first round, it might be a bit confusing, but you'll get the hang of it soon enough.

Can't wait - I want to finish this quote puzzle so I can frame and hang it!

So I only have five pieces left of my current puzzle, so I'm going to have to figure out a theme for my next. I have a few things in the back of my head, but nothing really winning yet.

A question though; any many of you familiar with the show Once Upon A Time? It's my BFF's favourite show, and he's got official merch on his walls, and he wants more, but it's expensive, so an art puzzle would make a good present. Or if not OUAT specifically, do you think you'd be able to do a fairytale peice (since basically every character is a fairytale classic)?

I made a craft for a 3TT swap with stuff for the Once Upon A Time show, would love to do more!
