Alright, so I changed/updated a few things. Here are some new dates:

Swap sign ups close July 10.

July 11-13 please send my your top 5 countries to swap with. Or if you do not care, please tell me that as well. The partner you get will be based either on the country you wish to have or the items you have requested. Or if you do not care that makes my life easier  Grin Feel free to send your information early.

July 14-17th will receive partner's information.

So this is what i came up with. there are 14 groups. some are groups of 2 others have more. Most of them are like this A sends to B sends to C sends to A,

A -> B -> C -> A

some of you are on here twice. if i missed you or something is wrong let me know. over the next couple of days i will send out partner information. if you are an eager beaver go ahead and message your partner, but i will send out all information anyways. ok so here it goes. (sorry if i spell your names wrong)

1) teamwang <-> selenium
2) shiva <-> ithnkuno
3) carina -> bkrenning4 -> crumpet -> carina
4) jadey_mcshadey -> lrschic -> prunille -> jadey_mcshadey
5) blackcat -> princessandthebead -> jan_on_ice -> blackcat
6) destino -> stopmoshun -> blueblythe -> purple_hippo -> destino
7) craftykate -> selenium -> mrs.benjimadden -> moominvalley -> craftykate
Cool crafty_dame -> ppcakes -> blackcat -> crafty_dame
9) jan_on_ice -> beadgirl -> teamwang -> crafty_zary -> jan_on_ice
10) jadey_mcshadey -> super_geek -> carina -> viciouskittie -> jadey_mcshadey
11) crafty_zary -> momcsp -> littleoddforest -> lady4feet -> crafty_zary
12) milly -> craftylea14 -> hanabi -> sabrinascharm -> milly
13) crafty_dame -> supstarrr110 -> wildwind -> punkrockmom -> alexandra_79 -> crafty_dame
14) therehn -> femmetastic -> littleoddforest -> wildwind -> alexandra_79 -> boxofpurls -> therehn

ok so there it is.
ps some of you are going on vacation for a week or two, so swap partners if you message your swap person and don't here back they are probably on vacation and will get back to you as soon as you can. in the mean time i will be sending out messages.

and group 8, apparently using the number 8 with a parentheses equals the cool smiley face so you guys are the cool smiley face group!

just to clear some confusion everyone will be sending to the person on the right, and receive from the people on the left.

destino is sending to me, but i am sending to blue blythe, blueblythe is sending to purple hippo and purplehippo is sending to destino. etc.

i will send out addresses and stuff when i get home from work.

Urgh, I wanted to join this one but I have to wait until I finish my first swap finishes which is a few days after this one closes.

I'm signing up, tomorrow maybe, when I get home. But I'm just wondering.. I'm from Portugal, but what if all of you girls are from te USA? maybe a "my state doesn't have that?".
Anyway, you guys are lucky Smiley my country doesn't have a lot of cool things you have.. If someone wants a very cool portuguese wool, or typical cotton printed fabric, or typical ceramic pieces, lace.. you know, crafty stuff, I would be proud to show our stuff of.

Too bad you can't receive food from international packages, we have great treats here.
Soooo... were are you guys from?

What does not kill you, only makes you stronger

I'm from the US, but I'll be in Japan during the swap.  I'm a bit worried because I'll be hiking in Hokkaido or doing field work when the swap starts.  That means I probably won't have an internet connection before I come home at the end of July.

If anyone is interested in getting something from Japan, could you leave a message or PM me about what you might want?  I would just like to have a few ideas before I get disconnected.
