And now let's get things started...(Why don't you get things started?)...It's time to get things started on the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational swap of all swaps! Yes, folks, here is the long awaited Jim Henson Swap! 

Swap name: Jim Henson Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: anna-begins
Sign-up date range: 3/1/06 - 3/15/06
Date to send item by: 4/22/06
Limited to a certain number of people? Nope!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? YES
All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All ages (16 and under please get permission from your parents!)
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders" list and will not allow those members to participate: YES
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

DETAILS:
This Swap is to celebrate Jim Henson, so it can include anything he was involved in. When we hear the name Jim Henson, the first things that come to mind are Muppets and monsters; however, Jim was also involved in creating some wonderful fantasy worlds where Fraggles danced their cares away, Gelflings raced to get the shard to the crystal in time, and Davie Bowie wore tights.

Because this swap is not limited to one show or movie, it is possible that you may get a partner who has different Henson favorites than you do. I will do my best to match people up with similar interests, but I may not always be able to do that. For example, a Sesame Street fan might be paired up with a Dark Crystal fan and have to make crafts that pertain to their partner's likes and not necessarily their own. Because of this, I've listed some links to where you can find information about some of the shows/movies/etc. that Jim was involved in. You can find the list here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73613.msg776287#msg776287

I am not putting any specific rules on this swap, like you must send "x amount of items".  Please just work hard on what you make and send something out that you're proud of.

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.
