Has series 3 got you itching to make a Hitcher plush toy, or silkscreen a Tony Harrison bikini? Well, you've come to the right place! This swap will require you to send One large, one medium, and one small Boosh-themed item to your partner, unless you and your partner do a little negotiating and decide to do less or more.
Remember to communicate both with me and your partner, especially if something's going wrong (shipping two days late is ok, but doing it without telling anybody is not!) And most of all, make a lot of fantastic and surreal Booshy goods!

No problem!  :D Thank you guys for signing up! Or considering signing up, as the case may be (conspicuous eye gestures to Phizzychick.)

P.S. I've noticed that Bob Fossil is getting a lot of attention in the "favorite characters" section. You guys are some classy broads. :P

My internet connection went down last week and I've not been able to get to a computer to sign up :'(

I guess it's probably best since I don't know when I can get on here again so communicating with my partner would be tough, but I'm so sad to miss this swap!!

Yeah, I'm a slowpoke too (read: lazy) so I've only done small. But worry not, the others are all planned  :D.

In other news, hurray! Our first swapper has sent! Timpani~jax, you get the gold metal of timeliness! From now on, you can see who has sent, received, etc. on the first post page.

There should be a round 6.  I'm almost finished with my crafting for this swap and there's not a pencil case in sight.  Something must be done.

Sorry I have been so quiet. I am actually sitting in my completely empty apt right now moving PLUS having issues with my relationship, so things are out of control. Hopefully I will start/finish up some stress relieving crafts here soon.

SUPER-IMPORTANT SWAP DEADLINE TELEGRAM! (stop)
Hey gang, so I've been getting quite a few people telling me that life has been interfering with crafting (the horror!) and they've had to send late. So I think a good solution might be to extend the deadline until Saturday. That will give everyone a few more days to finish up (don't rush!  :P) and give those who work during the week a little weekend time to finish. Is this ok with everyone? Sorry to those who have already sent; you guys will get a glowing "sent early! Freaking amazing craftster!" feedback  ;). Let me know what you guys think of this idea. For now, let's say that Saturday is the new deadline. Any objections? Speak now or forever hold your peace.
