teamwang! I would never expect self doubt from a successful swaper like yourself. Your work is always some of my favorite stuff on here and never 'subpar'. I absolutely adore your Botilcelli-gone-punk and the Kraken Awakes? Good stuff! I guess it just goes to show that everyone has a little bit of anxiety when you're creating for a stranger.

For me the worse part is when I get my partners package first and its SO fabulous (like Synne's for example) and now I'm worried mine will suck in comparison!

I totally understand that too.  I got my Bag&Bag charm swap package from Surfrgrl and it was so cute.  I just shipped hers and she should be getting it soon.  I'm totally sweating bullets over it. Embarrassed.  Somebody hand me a paper bag!

I have the same problem. Logically, I know that my stuff is well made and all, but I always imagine that I'll come on and see horrible things written about my work in the gallery.

That's me in a nutshell! Particularly for any medium I haven't worked with a lot.

I just did my first swap (tattoo/bodymod II).  I was a little bit nervous about the quantity of stuff I sent--I didn't want my partner to feel ripped off.  I decided to just shoot for quality instead, and I'm really happy with what I sent.  Even if she doesn't like it, I know I did my best Smiley
