I want to be involved either way in this wonderful swap, but I feel
like I would rather have a more "shallow" sign up period...like maybe end of September-ish, just a week ahead of time, and a longer craft period...especially for a topic of this nature where I may be sewing things...That first week is pretty vital to get to know your partner, pick out projects to create, and to then purchase materials. Then that would only leave 3 weeks...or less...till the send-out date. Starting a sewing project, or a painting, or a doll etc. seems pretty intimidating to me in such a short amount of time, so I might
have to make something smaller or send a few days late....and I REALLY don't want to have to do that. I like to be on-time.
I like to make decent sized objects and things with considerable detail. School just started, and that's also a time-balance concern for me. Just being honest...don't want to ruffle feathers.
I see your point but the purpose of extending the swap is to include a swap newbie who needs feedback before she can join in. Mieljolie can you please let me know via PM if you will sign up for the swap if I hold it open for you? I would hate to keep the swap open and not have you sign up.
