Hi Mountains and Clouds *waves*  Cheesy

Woot partners already! I feel less silly for checking in with this thread daily 'just in case.' Thanks for getting these up so quickly Juliel85!

Whew! Well, I'm happy to report that 1) Hunger Games was AMAZING and 2) all questionnaires are sent out! Even I'm surprised by how fast I got that done, so please let me know if I somehow managed to miss you. Also, please check and make sure that this swap is showing up in your profile - everyone's info should be updated.

Just a reminder that the first partner's send out date for the letter is April 13th. You MUST pm me when you've sent!

Hopefully the early closing will give everyone enough time to write a really thoughtful, well-written letter. I'm excited to get going!

Wow!  I am SO HAPPY for partners!  I have had such a SUCKY week, and completely forgot that we were getting partners so this is such a HAPPY treat for me!  And, I'm the first sender, whoo-hoo!

And from the sound of it, my partner is just a bit sarcastic, just like me, and I like that.  Grin Roll Eyes

Random question.... we're only posting the crafted items to the swap, right?  So personal info included in the letters won't end up getting posted... not that I have dark secrets, but just checking to be sure Wink

So. Excited! Now I just have to see which one of us is sending a letter first. We both picked that it didn't matter. :p

KookaburraBot, whoever I listed first in the partnership is supposed to be the first partner. If you guys want to change, let me know, I don't really have a problem with that! But for now I have Theaquacreature sending first for you two.

Yes Mountains and Clouds, only the craft gets posted to the gallery. Good question, though! I figure we can all imagine what a letter looks like well enough. Wink

Awesome, thanks!  I figured as much, and didn't see any past pictures.  I guess we can be trusted to ask our three questions... haha!

Okay, I just re-read the entire thread plus the whole thread for Round 3, just in case this was already mentioned, but if it was, I can't find it.

I'm Partner #2. So ThePaperDoll sends me her letter. I receive it and write a letter wherein at some point I answer her three questions, and ask three questions of my own. Should I be waiting for a letter back from her, with the answers to my questions, or should she answer them in a PM or something to accelerate the process?

(As if I weren't already coming up with 500 things I could craft for her!)
(And as if mail between us won't take ONE DAY because we live approximately two hours' drive time away from one another!)

Hmm well the way it worked last time, at least with my partner, was we each included another letter WITH our craft, and she answered my questions then. I guess I'd say if you want her to answer questions specifically about your craft, you may want to go ahead and PM her or ask her to PM you with answers. Another good question...I remember having a similar question last time!
