I participated in this last year and really enjoyed it. I would love to participate in another one if someone was to organize one.  I've never organized and have thought about trying it but not sure I'd want to start with such a big swap and the timing isn't right.

I've done this one a couple of times and it's loads of fun! Did you ask the previous organiser if they were interested in organising again?  If not, I might be interested, keep me posted.

It was RebelTrendsetter and she hasn't been online since last November  Sad
 so I assumed she'd probably not be interested.

Wow, has it been that long?  Okay, well, I'll think about it and post later if I can do it.

When are you thinking that you'd like to start this one?

I'm fairly flexible. Some time in August? 1 week? 2weeks? That's start sign ups in 1 or 2 weeks. Maybe end sign ups 2 weeks after that?

I did this swap last year, but it was a real mixed bag for me. I got the first 2 packages and they were really great. But then I never got the third one. My partner stopped responding to messages that's pretty much where it stopped. At least I got good feedback.  Undecided

Despite that, I kind of want to try again this year.

That sucks.  Did you get an Angel at least?
Luckily the only time I was ever flaked on, the person wasn't responsive from the get-go and I was able to drop out of the swap.

I didn't...by the time everything went downhill, I was super close to delivering my second kid. So I didn't press the issue because I had that whole thing to worry about instead. It turned out okay...I got a super cute baby!

Okay, I'm going to work on setting this up tomorrow. Smiley

stellato - glad you got a cute baby, we'll make sure you get taken care of this time!

The best time I had with this swap was when I was partnered with EdelC! She was fabulous!

I'm really looking forward to this again! Are the rules, guidelines and time frames going to be the same?

Ok, I've gone through everything and marked up my changes.  I know everyone loved all the printables, but I'm not going to add those in.  I feel like everyone has a calendar of some sort to put the dates on, so we should be okay.

I'm pretty sure I'll have this up before noon tomorrow, but we'll see what happens when I get to work.lol
