So excited! I just sent in my questionnaire. I signed up more for the Gardening part of the swap, since I've never done a gardening swap before and I'm ga-ga over veggie gardening right now. I'm at the seed catalogue-looking + planning stage for this year's container edibles garden.

But I'm also really into the eco, recycling, and hippie angle. . . even though I don't usually dress too hippie-ish.

I just scanned my previous swaps, and just for fun, here's a few partially-related swap galleries for potential inspiration:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236052.0 - The Going Green swap
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232343.0 - Farmer's Market Swap 1. . .
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343578.0 - . .  and 2

So sad to see Craftster go!

Thanks for the links! I have added all questionnaires submitted thus far.

I will try to add participants at least every other day so don't freak out if you submit your questionnaire and it isn't added right away.

Those links wre great Smiley Thanks for posting. Looking through previous similar galleries pushed me over from "I think I'd love this but I've no ideas and I need a break from crafting" to "Gotta do it!" My questionnaire is on the way.
