If you know you will be late or unable to complete the swap please let me know ASAP. I understand things can happen...just touch base and keep in touch. So on that note.....
Communication is a must. Everyone is required to post on the thread at least once a week to let me know they are still involved with the swap. If you do not post up it will be noted in your feedback. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the internet just let me know.
Also for this swap, it would be good for partners to communicate often, if possible.

Agonizingly on the fence about this one!   Shocked  Could be super challenging with a lot of research - but fun!

I am in the same boat as Ludi right now, I will definitely be mulling this one over. Looks like it will be a great swap!  Grin

If my daughter was filling this out the lead in picture would be the perfect crafted item to go with her obsession: Macaroni and cheese. Too bad that daughter has to wait another year to be old enough to swap.

This is much harder then I thought it would be. The filled in questionnaire seems to keep growing, it's so hard to explain why you love something so much Or is that just me?

Working on my questionnaire, but it may take a while! I definitely agree with NathanielM93 - trying to get the right idea across is really difficult! (Also finding myself wondering what everyone else's obsessions are Wink)

the answers can be as long or as short as you want. the more detail you give the less research your partner has to do.  Wink but yea i could write book on my obsessions and still not get a point across  lol

Oh my yes, I could go on FOREVER about my obsessions, and often have to force myself to be brief!  And what's funny is I was just thinking back on former obsessions of mine - as a teenage girl I would have listed Shakespeare, the American Civil War, and the Beatles, but through my 20's and now in my 30's, I'm all about the Japanese boy bands!!  Am I aging in reverse?! ;P  I'll try to include at least one or two things that aren't j-pop related, but no promises! XD

Even when trying to keep my questionnaire "simple" I still feel an author writing a book. Hah. So excited though!
