I'm not even thinking about what I'd like to make for my partner. I'm prestalking a lot of Pintrests, and pinning things I'd like to make in the future, but I'm not thinking ahead for this swap because my favourite part of swapping is stalking my partner and finding the perfect thing for them, so I don't want any preconceived notions.

Yep! Sometimes I'll think ahead when the swap has a theme, but definitely not for this! My thinking ahead is... I could make them something crocheted, or some ATCs, or some jewelry, or a stenciled shirt, etc. Basically, what do I know how to do.  Tongue I have been doing some prestalking, but I keep getting distracted by peoples' pinterests! Plus, there's so many people signed up for the swap I don't know if I'll be able to prestalk everyone before signups are over. Hopefully I get to everyone that ironic sends to me to be in my group, it'll make my partnering easier!

I decided to join after I have finished hopefully at least one of the swaps that I am in at the moment.
By the way, are there any participants from Europe? I don't mind sending overseas but as you know the posting can cost quite much when the package gets even a bit bigger or heavier.

I'm in the UK!  There are a couple of others here in this swap as well, I think.

I'm in the Netherlands and would like to have a partner who's in Europe as well!

I'm certainly spending a lot of time pinning things on Etsy & Ravelry in the hopes of helping my swap partner.

What is with pinterest anyways - I have requested an invitation a number of times and I get nothing.  I am not getting pretty pissed with the whole process.

Busy busy day for me! Turns out we may be moving in 3 weeks! AND I might be getting a vallhund puppy (google them, then try and tell me you have seen a cuter puppy  Cheesy )
I promise that when we do move, I'll alter my address (I'll also pay for my mail to be forwarded just in case  Wink )

I've been busy adding things to my Pinterest too.  I just put down things I could think of at the time on my questionnaire but there are so many more crafty things I love/want.  So I hope my partner just uses my answers as a suggestion.

I have lots of ideas of things I might make but they're all pretty broad.  It's lots more fun to stalk a partner and then figure out just the right thing for them.  I'm trying to be patient but can't wait to get partners and start stalking!
