I won't have time to participate in another swap, but the only thing that bothered me about the last round was that almost all secrets were posted within a very short time period, which means that there could be like 10 or more new secrets every day. That meant many got "lost" in the shear volume of secrets. Maybe it would be better to spread out the sending of the secrets, so that they would be appearing over a longer period of time?

Or maybe I was the only one who was a bit sad that so many secrets were ignored because people just discussed one in a batch of ten..?

Good point, they did kind of lump together - i mailed all of mine last swap within two days of each other... we should stagger the mailings

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

I think 10 cards is perfect.  I like JulieBoolie's idea though if you make it 5 cards sign for two spots.  Or maybe since so many people are interested, run round 6 and 7 simultaneously with one doing 5 cards and the other doing 10.

ATC personal swap? I spy quilt square swap?

I like the ten cards....I have many secrets. ha ha. Five is far too small

I wanna join when sign-ups start

I'd love to join as well! I'm another one that missed signups for the last round. I would prefer 10 cards, 5 seems like not that many. If whoever organizes needs a co-organizer (since there seems to be a lot of interest in this swap), I'd be willing to help.  Smiley

I can do a small one if no one else is volunteering. I definitely can't do a big one with 10 cards each though Sad I'm getting married July 25th,  so I would like to have it mostly done by then, and round 4 is still not done (even though signups started Feb 29th!). But like someone else mentioned, theres nothing wrong with having Round 5 and Round 6 going on at the same time if someone wants to organize a bigger one Smiley
