sadly alicelovester has had to leave us, which leaves us with an odd number... unless anyone has any objections, to even things out i will take on two partners.

also, i had such a wide variety of likes/preferances, it was pretty tough to match people. if anyone is desperately unhappy, let me know but please be open minded!

so, without further dealy, here's the list! ;

ShesAZombie <----> geckochan / mysticflower

pantsafari <----> craftastrophe

la_fille_muette <----> aquamarine007

becs88 <----> horrormaedchen

designvigilante <----> kasihime

Anya Kase <----> missmuffcake

My kitchen is a mix of 50's and pirate...Long story short the guy who did the tiles could not get the perfect tiles to do the checkered pattern so now we have black & white stripes...I kinda say pirate for the stripes so I added a bunch of skulls to the mix along with an anchor.

Would a mash up work?
