I really like the photo you chose maehem! Bad ace Rockabilly chicks!

I would really love to participate in this swap but I definitely won't be able to do another one until later in the year. Work has been piling up so fast! I'll definitely catch this one next time around

Enjoy everyone!

Ahhh!!! How awesome! I'm a bit more psychobilly than rockabilly. Nonetheless, I'll work on the questionnaire for later Smiley

Must sign up when I get home! I have not "set" style but love a lot of the Rockabilly stuff. I remember the Stray Cats back in the 80's and how we used to dress then....

Yay! I'm with you girls on the psychobilly-ness. I've always had a thing for bats and zombies.

I'll be sure to note that and match people up accordingly =)

I'm in! I sent my questionnaire....and this will be a nice change. I vacillate between personal styles. Lately it has been hippy but I can't wait to do this as a nice change! I'm not into the psychobilly stuff for myself but it might be fun to craft for others!

Oh oh oh! I'm super excited about this swap.. Also more of a psychobilly kind of gal but this should be fun.

Burning every bridge that I cross to find some beautiful place to get lost.
