I was afraid the questionnaire would be too much, but there's more to think about this way!

Was anyone else afraid that the limit of 30 would be filled by the time you finished filling out the questions? Lol

I agree that lots of questions can certainly help alot. I just worry that it can stifle creativity sometimes. I don't want someone to think that I MUST receive items from my wishlist or I won't be happy. I also worry that if I go away from someone's wishlist they won't be happy.

But honestly with as many creative minds on craftster, I know everyone will make what they want and think their partner will like. Smiley

Yea, I see what you mean Ezri B.  I just end up wondering so many of the things I put on the questionnaire that I thought I'd just put them on.  Ofcourse, you and your partner will probably talk about what you want anyhow!

We've got 12 people interested so far, so that's great!  If we hit 30 before sign-ups end then we'll start crafting early!

I'm in!

And I see what you mean there Ezri_B... That's why I made a list (though I had a hard time figuring what to put on it exactly!), but I also wrote I liked to be surprise. Honestly, I haven't seen much stuff on here that didn't get me to go Woah! I want one of those Cheesy

And guys! Remember to take pictures/create tutorials as you go along for this swap! We'll add it on The Leaky Cauldron in the Crafts section!! Sorry if I'm an absolute pest about this... I just want to create the biggest HP crafts section known to mankind! Wink

EDIT: Since this is a character swap, how about we write here about who is our favourite character and why? It could promote a nice discussion, and it could eventually give our swap partner some ideas or inspiration?

I first chose Hermione because I can relate to the brainy girl who knows everything. Just like her, I'm often participating in class, and I know that at lower levels in my education, it would sometimes bug other students in the class because I would ask questions, etc. Yet, despite being a know-it-all, Hermione is also a good friend and her advice are appreciated by others.

Second I chose Ginny, because like her, I have that strenght of character and I can relate to her.  Ginny doesn't mind pushing people aside to keep going towards my goal. Ginny has been brought with 6 guys, so she toughened up and now that she's a teen "you'd better wake early" if you want to do something to her, as we'd say in French.

I also threw in Dumbledore because I just like his personality, which I always see as a mix of wisdom and madness. You gotta love the headmaster!

Just remember to include your fave character in your PM questionnaire so that it's easier to match up partners!  There's a lot of things that come in play in matching people up and I'm using characters to help it along.

The sign-ups are doing nicely for a first day!

If we get our 30 swappers in like 3 days (which, IMO, will most likely happen!), will you send out partners early? That could give us a little more time to craft!

I really liked the list, I think it will help me with ideas, but I do hope that we can stray from the list, making something cool they didn't mention, and I hope my partner will do the same for me if there is something she wants to make that I didn't think of.

Can't wait to find out who my partner will be...

Yes, i was afraid of i was taking too long to type, and might miss the 30 limit, hope i made it!
