Great idea! I'm going to go back to the idea board and message those who were interested and let them know that signups are going on--they might not have noticed yet.

hmm I am considering this because I LOOOOOVE making hair accessories and getting them in return... I am currently running a swap and have 2 partners for that and I have another swap that is going to be REALLY large and take up time to make.... Plus I signed up for the walking dead swap so.... I am really stacking things onto myself with just 1 slot left for sign up... I will think about this some more I dont know if I can even resist LOL

I really really really want to do this swap, but I'll be out of state from May18th to May 28th. I could get all my crafting done and send early, but I'm not sure.  :-\

It should be pretty easy to do (as long as you're feeling inspired)--I hope you do decide to do it. You'd have almost 2 weeks to craft before you go out of of town. Keep thinking about it! :)

Don't over do  yourself, but this is only a 3 point swap...it should be pretty quick and easy...and FUN! (aren't they all, though?)  You've still got some time to decide.

I think crocheted items would be lovely. I've recently been learning to crochet, and thought one or more of my items would possibly have that as a medium, as well.

Mine too! Although it's only May, there's still time, but if I do it's staying much longer than past years. It's just too easy to pull it back!

Not being a yarnie I admire you all greatly.

Partners are pretty much figured out, but we still have tomorrow for sign ups. I will be sure to send out partners by Sunday afternoon. I'll be pretty busy tomorrow, so I'll probably close sign ups towards later in the evening. If I'm not too tired, I'll post partners; otherwise, I'll get them out Sunday afternoon.

I'm excited about my partner!! I've already started and am about halfway done...that might change though...I like to tweak and add to things ;) Just trying to get things in order before I leave for vacation!

Oh my! You've been busy! We may have a Gallery before we can even blink an eye :)

I have to give my hands a break from crafting. Too much small work has taken it's toll and now I have to rest them up for a couple of days  :( So I'm bookmarking and jotting down ideas but the 1 project I have started for this swap has to wait. At least I got the mother's day gift I was working on done in time.

I just finished another hair piece. I think my partner is going to love how it turned out. I'm annoyed though because when I attached it, to hide the fascinator part (trying to cleverly not lead on too much) it would mean she'd have to wear the piece upside down. So, I flipped it, and now the fascinator part doesn't hide entirely when she'd wear it, but she can wear it right side up. Either way, it's too cute not to send, so I hope that little issue isn't much of an issue after all!

Made some cute stuff last night. Hope my partner thinks its cute too!  Used an online tute but got cocky and tried to finish the first piece on my own...oops. NQR but still functional and pretty,  other 3 are made following tute.  Now just have to find my button box....it is not in any of the usual places.

I am on a roll. I was inspired and made another piece. This is so addicting...it's hard to decide when to stop and send out...especially when there's still so much crafting time left!

Hey ladies! I hope we're all having fun in this swap! I know I am! Think about if you might be interested in another round towards the end of summer....I know of a few people who wanted to participate this round but weren't able to. I'd be willing to organize it again....we could change out out summer hair goodies for fall....:)

I  think there's still a few swappers out there that have received from your partner, but haven't added your goodies to the Gallery. Please add them as soon as you can so we can all enjoy! Thanks so much!
