Before I send in a questionnaire I have a question. I haven't been active for...a while. Would I still qualify?

Ceda, I looked at your profile and you have a clean swap career. It's okay to take a swap break now and again. If you're ready to jump back in, I don't see any reason you wouldn't be allowed.

I will get my sign up in, maybe even later today. I just received a dream catcher in the 10 minute swap. My daughter was so jealous. Maybe I'll do a practice one for her.

Hi Ceda!  My apologies for not answering your question sooner.  I've had my in-laws visiting for the long weekend, and was only able to get on and check the thread now that they're gone!  Smiley

To answer your question, I have no problem with you having been inactive on Craftster for a while and will be thrilled to have you join our swap.  Smiley

But just know that you do have to stop by and post in the thread once a week to let folks know you are still around.  The Mods are diligent about checking on this, and will drop people from a swap if they have signed up, but never posted anything in the main swap thread, after signing up.  If you don't feel chatty, that's okay.  Just stop by and say something like, "Still working & planning to send on time."
