I just have to wait for my feedback on my 1st swap... I think things got a little behind with it because of craftster being down and the holiday and all. I'm glad it's such a long sign up period!
P.S. Thanks for all the links, I was wondering what I could use for inspiration. I was planning on a library trip, but this might have saved me the trouble!

I figured it would be good to have a long sign up because December can be so busy, and because a couple people mentioned they would be interested, but they were new members who had to wait a while before they were swap eligible. 

And as for the links, those are some of the sites I like to frequent when I'm not on craftster.  I would also like to mention three great books:
Jane Austen: In Style by Susan Watkins (1996)
Jane Austen's World by Maggie Lane (1997)
Costume in Detail: 1730-1930 by Nancy Bradfield (1999 reprint)
They have some great pictures and historical tidbits.

Hey raindrops.  Yes, you can participate.  I won't officially approve you until the 29th, but feel free to send in your questionaire before then.  The more the merrier!
