I'd join but my first craftster swap is still on it's way to both recipents. . .

LOL, when we started 1st grade each of my sibblings got their first alarmclock with a radio.  Could not decide which station to liten to and then I heard "yesterday" playing and since it was a song from "The Last Unicorn"  (my favorite movie at the time) it stayed on the oldies station for about 10 years. . .my first personal CD was Beatles Anthology: 1 when it came out 10 years ago. . .at Costco

Lucy - I sent you my info. BUT I just realized that on 9/25 I will be just 4 days short of being officially registered here for a month.  Cry   I lurked for so long before joining that it feels like I've been here for years!  I have more than enough posts.....

I'll sing for you if you let me join....Picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies....

I don't want to break any rules, because I know they are pretty strict with swapping - and I totally understand the reasons why.  I'm just such a huge Beatles fan I'd hate to miss out on this one!

Lucy, it's up to you as the organizer of this swap, but if you'd like to extend the reg. period to get more people to sign up (if that's even allowed) I certainly would understand.

i would love to swap, but i'm involved in too many right now. it would have to be pushed at least 2 weeks for me to join. but don't extend just for me. it could be a nice intimate swap with only a few people, and once people see the goodies in the gallery they'd be all excited for round 2. good luck.

Hmmm... It's weird - I thought a Bealtes swap would be very popular based on all the Beatle craft projects I've seen! There's got to be a few more people who want/are able to participate!

I would, but I just joined yesterday (after a wee (read very much not wee) bit of lurking) So I REALLY don't meet the requirements.  If anyone wants to know how I made glovey doveys for my best friend in high school, feel free to PM me.

Vive les beatles!!!

(and if there is a second go round when I'm sufficiently de-newb-ified, count me in!)

I would like to do this one too, but I'm not sure I'm going to have enough time/resources to do it.  I just signed up to organize my first swap and I'm not sure I would be able to think of enough things to make.

I think we could just do a small swap.  I think those who didn't participate will be envious!

I just PM'd to join - my first swap but I knew I had to do this one!  Gah, I have been in love with The Beatles forever and a day.  I keep trying to talk my boyfriend (who likes The Beatles well enough, but is not obsessed with them like I am) into having a Beatles Anthology Weekend, where we just watch the whole thing on DVD straight through (in our pajamas of course).  I think we've decided to wait until it's colder outside and we can hunker down under some blankets with a fire going to watch it.  Then I'm also going to force him to watch Hard Day's Night, Help! and Yellow Submarine.  It will be the best weekend ever in my opinion.

Shoot, that sounds like fun. I was ambitious like that once and I got as far as watching AHDN and Help! consecutively, but I think I fell asleep toward the end of Help!. Ah well, that's old age creeping up on me... Cry
