I'm so excited for this swap, and filling out the questionnaire made me realize there are quite a few movies I haven't seen him in! I need to get on that.

So happy you're planning on joining us, Monkey_Girl!

There are a number of Bowie films that I haven't seen either, Acadian Driftwood.  I'm actually watching 'Just a Gigolo' right now.  David is soooo young!!

And because I just feel like it, here's a Bowie video.

I'll send my deets in when I get home this evening (or early tomorrow). I'm totally in, as long as no one minds shipping to Australia!

So glad this is a thing even if I will very probably cry while crafting. I still signed up first thing this morning.

As an FYI, I am getting married just under a week after the sending deadline, and while I *will* make good on my word and am very Type A about making/getting gifts for people which carries over into swaps/Secret Santas and things, I just want to give a heads' up that I have a kind of enormous commitment a few days after. (Well, just my wedding, no biggie - except that weddings are ridiculously huge in my community.) But believe me, I'd rather be crafting to honour David Bowie than like 99% of wedding planning stuff that I have left, so it shouldn't cause any problems. (Mods, should I remind you of that in a PM?)

Congratulations, thegirlwiththemouseyhair, on your upcoming nuptials!!!  That's so exciting!
I think we can give you a pass if we don't hear from you quite as often.  Just be sure to let your partner know what's up (when you get a partner, of course)!

- and I totally get you about the likelihood of tears while crafting!  Although I have promised myself that I will also be doing a good deal of dancing about the house to his music!

So glad to have you with us, monkey_girl!!

SilverMoon, looking forward to having you join us too!  I can't speak for everyone but I for one am willing to send Bowie love anywhere in the world!
