This swap is for those who love video games, it doesn't matter if you are a casual gamer or a hardcore gamer - this is for everybody. Some people love the old games while others love the new stuff. My family loves it all and I am doing this for them.

There are lots of crafts online if you need any ideas, feel free to post links, at the bottom of the post are a few suggestions to look at. Talk to your partner to get ideas, follow the thread and join in the discussion. If you don't have any places where people can findout what you like think about gettting into Pinterest or getting a Wist, or something similar. Warning: Pinterest can become addictive.  Roll Eyes

Make sure that you post to the thread each week so that your partner and organizer know that you are around and participating.

Of course, as long as you are doing the crafting who you want the items made for isn't an issue. My partner will be making for my kids. I have done a few swaps where my kids and husband have been the real recipients of my packages.

I am confused is this Video games or all games?

« Reply #9 on: January 22, 2013 09:05:20 PM »

I think it was just video games, but we'd need an official ruling from the organizer to know for sure. Still on the fence about joining. March is a busy month for me but maybe I could get all my other stuff done before then and have time for this. If I could stop playing my 3DS for long enough...
