I think the wish swaps are a good source for personal swaps. I saw something I could make, from someone who I was really considering buying something from and I thought.. hmm.. maybe we could trade, and it was so much fun! (you know who you are  Wink )
In another case someone sent me something cause I had really admired it and didn't really ask for anything specific in return. I was really stumped on how to pay her back, but then when she posted her wish list swap I sent her one of those items.
Maybe we could start a thread where swappers introduce themselves and post things we like and would really love to have and whether we are open to personal swaps. We could refer our swappers to that thread if they want info about us and if there's someone who you would really love something from, check that thread and if they are there and open to personal swaps and want something you know you could make, you could approach them.
The only concern I have is that it shouldn't be a completely open invitation to accept all personal swaps. The really great swappers could just get bombarded with requests and it's good to be able to limit how much crafting you do, so no one should be insulted if someone says no.
Just a thought.

I think thats an awesome idea bobolink!  The wish swaps really are a great source for personal swaps.  Wink

Perhaps someone could "organize" it so there is someone there to set a "standard" wish post and there will be someone to go to with questions. They can include some sort of an Intro/Disclaimer explaining to everyone that its okay to say/recieve a no.

Your best bet would be to browse the boards, and if you see a project you like, pm the creator and see if they'd like to do a one-on-one swap with you, for something you can make/ or somethig they can use.  I've done one-on-one swaps before, and they usually work out pretty well.

oh, private message. look at the top of your screen, see the box that says user info? it says "hi _____, you have _ messages, _ are new"?  If you click on messages, you can send private messages to another member. its like an email sort of.

Is there any place a person can post to give credit to members who honor personal swaps? Latetly, i have recieved some fabulous personal swap packages and would love to give credit where credit is due! Could possibly a space be added to feedback, "Positive Personal Swaps" And just a number, 1, 2, 3, etc. ? Just a thought, d  Smiley Smiley Smiley

I think that's a great idea Smiley
In the personal swap that I've done, someone saw a bag that I made and asked if I'd be interested in a swap, we ended up making each other a bag and posted them in my original thread. It would be great to have a place to see what everyone else is up to!
Yay for personal swaps Cheesy
