Slight change - we have two Canadians that really want to swap with someone in Asia or Europe so I'm putting US and Canada in the same column

We now need 5 someone's other than US or Canada  Grin

If you still want to get in the next 5 (us and canada) go ahead and send in your info and I will post in the order in which they rec. after we fill these first five.

Thanks everyone!

hi lexis! I'm still here. Smiley I'm trying to keep my craftster addiction to swaps that are reasonably straightforward to participate in (at least until I have some sort of reasonable travel schedule for my job- they leave me in limbo)!

We definitely have access to the same sources of paper and guess we both hope for something more exotic and international.  Wink

Has anyone else already started filling an envelope? 

I'm finding that all the really awesome paper is 12x12...so I'm thinking about cutting them down and keeping the scraps for myself...  BONUS!  Cheesy


I put this in my signature!

Well we aren't too international yet so this will end up being just a paper swap I think - we have two from Cananda, one from Japan and the rest are USA - so let me know if you want to stay in the swap - we have one or two other USA people who want to sign up but were pending so will open this up a bit and see what happens.  Grin

Ok guys to make this fair I just drew numbers out of a cup
in some cases you may be sending to one person and rec. from another - just depending on how the numbers were drawn.   Grin

Everyone should have their info on whom they are sending to - if you don't please let me know.
Send out date April 31, 2006 - usa people sending to usa people please get a DC and pm me the DC number when you send out - please let me know when you send so I can get everyone's swap info updated.
If anyone wants to set up side trades that is fine also just pm each other and work it out between yourselves.

Green = Sent
Brown = sending late
Purple = rec.

At least you're on the mainland lexis and your mail doesn't depend on BC Ferries! When the ferries went on strike we got no mail on the Island.
