(A general guide)

 Cry *sob*  Cry No matter how fast I craft and send I probably can't get feedback soon enough to join this because so many of my partners are international.....  I might have to fake join because I want to make a carnivorous plant so badly!

I am in a similar boat. I have one spot left but am saving it for the bird swap next week. I will probably receive feedback on one more in that time but wanted to do the faux taxidermy swap. Too much awesome!!! ARGH!!!  I will at least stalk. Wink

Yay! For sign-ups!  Glad to have you mwwrraar and The Raging Sloth!

SlickMariaVic, come play! You know you want to join!  

Ludi, OH NOoooo!  I'm very saddened by this.  Hopefully a spot will clear up right at the last moment.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

artsycandice, not you too!?  You will be badly missed if you don't join.  Just saying.  But, I have to stay positive, as I know there is a lot of Craftster love to go around.  I know I'm skipping some swaps that I wanted to join to organize this one.  Not sure how much I can multi-task so better safe than sorry.

lol I need to reactivate the Fake Swap craftalong...it was very popular in previous years because there were just more swaps than people could join all at once!

We made things and pretended to swap with ourselves...it was so much fun and hilarious...uh, most of us got fake negative feedback for mailing late or not mailing at all...ha ha ha

Oooh, this sounds like so much fun! I'm counting the days until I'm able to join swaps, I've been stalking the current and old ones and I'm super excited. Tongue Can't wait to see what you guys post for this! Heck, I may fake-join and make something, too. I really love this theme!
