Starting a new thread here to see how many are interested in another round of the Ongoing Offer What you Have Swap. It's been over a year now since the last round.

In short the swap works like this:
1) The first person posts a list of supplies/crafted items that they would like to swap away.
2) Someone claims one thing from the list posted (or more if the lists has a 2 for 1 section or something like that). Then they post their own list.
3) Someone claims something from that list and posts their own list...
...and so on. There is one list active at each point, and anyone in the swap (who is prepared to post their own list) can claim from it.

Last year I was the co-organizer / bad cop organizer (keeping the swap going, reminding people to update lists). I kind of like the role of co-organizer, if someone else wants to organize. A2K, what do you say?

I suppose I wouldn't mind organizing if you'll be bad cop, gavagai!  Cheesy  Let's see if we can get 10 or more people to participate!

Have thought about joining some of the ongoing swaps, but time and postage always deter me. If I understand this one though, I only have to claim when I want to and can choose easy things to ship from my crafts and supplies. Is that correct?

Yes! I have been really needing to destash and get out some stuff leftover from other projects...lots of yarn, some beads, and will probably throw in some scrapbooking stuff too. Count me in!

That is absolutely correct!!!  The last round didn't have a lot of swaps happening, but if we have enough people, it's quite fun.  Check out the last round here:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426089.10

Okay!  It looks like we have enough folks to get this going!  I'll work getting this swap organized and start the round with my list.

Yay! I'm so happy!  Grin I am definitely up for co-organizing if you need me.

I've already got you listed as the co-org!  I've also already added you to the swap!  Send me your sign-up anyways, though, will you?   Cheesy

Is there a 2014 discussion thread for this yet? Do we use this one or the one for last year? I'm sooo excited for this! Looking forward to getting my unloved stuff to someone who will love it and getting new things for me to love Cheesy
