You might also get some ideas by clicking on the user's name; this will take you to his/her profile, and from there you can 'read last posts' of the user.  This is what I've been doing to get an idea of what people might like in swaps.   Undecided  Wink

You could also look at what other swaps they have done, and talk to their swap partner.


OOhhh, post stalkery....Now THAT'S a thing to do on a rainy day! LOL.

well, I was in a swap and got flaked on. The organizer went way out of her way to make sure I got not one but two packages (from her). This is how I picked the person, I just wanted to let her know I appreciate how hard she worked to make sure all participants were happy. And I like doing nice things! d

retroturtle helped me.(She's on page 1) She sent her a questionair and then forwarded her answers to me. By sharing this she may now know who I am, but kindness is nice. I'm sure retro can help you. d

i think this is an awesome way to boost the morale around here...everyone is quite down about all the flaking that has gone on...it makes me sad...but doing this would make me feel better!

That's nice of you to do.  I think it's terrible when people flake out on a swap.  Most caftsters here are great about sending cool stuff out to strangers.  I know I do swaps mainly so I can have fun crafting and I get to make a random stranger happy.  But it is fun to get that package in the mail too:)
