I'm pretty excited about the possibility of this swap!  I was also wondering about...
And just to clarify - the calendar can be separate from the gifts, right?  They don't have to fit into the calendar, do they?  I can do it either way.
If the pressies aren't "in" a calendar, then it's kind of like a longer 12 days of christmas swap?
I like the idea of having to make the calendar and put the gifts in it, I did that for my aunt one year with a large box about 2" deep that I partitioned off and made flaps on the front for the doors fot the days, it was great because you have to think of so many little things to fit in it!  Plus that way the shipping would stay relatively affordable.

So excited about this swap. It will be so fun to come up with 24 gifts for my partner.

the actual gifts don't need to fit in the calendar, but the qoute (and candy if you choose) should!  it's sometimes hard to fit gifts safely in a calendar if your pal is into say a 5" stuffy but only has wall space for a 10"x10" calendar, lol.

Looking for the free row by row patterns.  If you are able to get me one from your town I will paypal you $2 for postage.

I will seriously have to think about this one. I loved doing it last year but I'm not sure if I will have the time.

I am already seeing christmas stuff in the stores (dollar store and a little bit at Michael's) and instead of getting annoyed this year I am actually excited because it reminds me of this swap Cheesy

I noticed that, too.  Am wondering if it's because of the craziness that leads up to the holidays (at least in my house!).
