This is really tempting... part of me thinks it would be fun to use a puzzle of the US states and send everyone their own state (or another that meant something to them...) Of course, it would be tough to ever finish the whole thing that way... especially with international swappers in the mix!

That would be so neat! I'd be up for Texas and California (my home and former home). Now I wish I'd thought of that! Smiley

That's funny! I put travel as my theme!  As for states, don't let that "OH" on the participant list fool you...I was born and raised in ALASKA and would totally be up for that one!

I love the idea of a USA puzzle - I love the ones that are made out of old license plates so an altered state puzzle would be wacky and wild! I think it would be fun to tackle any state - just for the fun of the shapes.

I'm doing a children's literature/reading theme for mine for my son.  We are about to redo his nursery as a "big boy room" so I'd like something fun for the walls that he can kind of grow into.  And I've been thinking about the pieces I'm holding back to do myself & I'm having the worst time narrowing them down!   Cheesy  We are a bookworm family & I'm remembering all the books I loved growing up...

I sent in my info. This will be my first altered puzzle. I think it would be kind of cool to not have a theme. Just random pieces and see what comes out.

Got my puzzle today! I haven't cracked into it yet, but I think it may be tiny... if it is, I guess I go back to shopping. I didn't buy a states puzzle, but I'm definitely thinking it might be an option for a future round (once I've got my feet wet with this one).

You can send tiny pieces - it's been done before.
One swapper - can't remember who - sent sets of 4 or 5 pieces that were pre-glued so it was a larger surface to work on.

Awww man, I reaaaaally wanted to be in this one (my friend is already signed up for it).  But I am currently in the midst of my first-ever swap, and there is no way I'm going to have things shipped off in time to get feedback before sign-ups close.  Undecided  Oh well... looking forward to watching the gallery and getting inspiration for the next round.

    Well, sign-ups go on for another 13 days so maybe you'll have feedback by then....Huh

    And you can always play along and start a puzzle for yourself (or for a friend) so you'll be ready for the next round!
