To give you ideas, I will list all the kits people are offering and what they want to learn. Go ahead and sign up. If you see something you want to add to your list later, that is no problem. Just PM me with any changes before the swap closes. So I dont get inundated with PMs about changing lists, lets say one PM (about this) per person. You can keep a list of all the changes you want made, and then PM me a day or so before the swap closes.

I am going to be a pain in the rump real quick...

Would it be possible to list the type of kits being offered so that people could see?  I am dying to learn cold process soap making and all I have is a blender stick so far.  I would love a kit for this more than I can say but the last few rounds there wasn't a whole lot offered in the bath and beauty department.  I figure that if there are a few soap people that signed up I would have a shot of being paired with one of them or that with everything listed, I would see something that I didn't know I wanted to learn Cheesy
