RECEIVING: PM organizers and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.) Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.

FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not) *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

Questionnaire sent! After about 5 seconds of thought, I decided I had to do another round Smiley I adore my pillows from Round 1!

I'm still waiting for covers from Round 1 but couldn't pass this up especially since they are larger covers.  My questionnaire is sent.
