I'm just about to start all my A-levels, so I'm not sure if I'm going to be in on this one, even though it has such a long crafting time.  I'll just lurk and decide nearer the deadline, k?

If I can get feedback for my first swap in time, I am so in! We'll see though, I'm sending my package out today, so it probably won't get there (and the feedback) soon enough...  Undecided Too bad signups are only a week long....  Sad I was really hoping I'd be able to do this one too!

I saw it in October... insanely awesome. And the merchandise they sell there has given me so many ideas for this swap...
killer rabbit slippers... "always look on the bright side of life" umbrellas... "spamalot" spam...

I'm wondering if I should extend signups by a few days. I'm a little perplexed in the lack of signups for this swap!  Sad

I don't think it would hurt to extend it a couple of days.  So many people expressed interest on the "idea" board.   Maybe we need to catapult some cows at them to remind them to sign up!

Bummer, I can't sign up for this one.  Hopefully there will be a round 2 somewhere in the future.  I'm still a lumberjack though, so I'm okay.

Everyone has been sent their partners, with the exception of kymporter, who still needs anna-begins' info (coming soon).

Have fun!

I should be sending on Friday to Irish_Belle.

I have two or three things that are halfway completed and I have another project on the back burner but I am going to plug away tonight and hopefully send tomorrow.  If I don't it'll be on Saturday.

I'll be a little late too. I was procrastinating and by the time I got to the craft shop they were out of Silkscreen fabric. It's on order. Sad Should be here in a couple of days.

I'm really nervous about the "completely different" crafts I sent you.. .they are completely different than anything I've ever made.  I've already bit all my nails off, and am now chewing on what's about to be a stub of a finger.... lol

I can't wait to get your package too! Why does each swap have to come with sooo much swap anxiety?  LOL!

Ice cream?! Where? How did I miss that?  All I know about is the beer.

I've sent, albeight late.  I was TWO MINUTES LATE to the post office on the 3rd and then wasn't able to send on the 4th because of the holiday...

*sigh*

Anyway, I'm having swap anxiety, too, so don't worry.
