*thinking of joining* am I reading it right that its one large item and 2 small each month to a different person each month?

i believe you are correct.  of course "large" doesn't have to be size-wise, just more time consuming.  as i understand it. 

oh, and now you have to join.  once you express interest, they'll pull you in  Wink

It sounds fun.  The only reason I am hesitating is that every 'longer' swap I have joined has kind of fizzled and been a pain to get finished.

oh i wasn't aware of that.  i'm a swap beginner.  this one seems like it'll be good, though.  and it's not toooo long.  we'll see i guess!

icrispyi - yes, as sleepywalkin said "large" can totally just mean more time. however, it could also mean more kick ass. if there's something you can make quickly and on the cheap, but people gawk at it and declare you a crafty goddess - I'm all for that qualifying too. Cheesy

furthermore, I vow as your fearless organizer to make sure that this swap does not suck or become unfun.

I'm thinking about joining. I've never done a swap before but it seems like it would be fun...i can ship for free from work, which would be a plus...but i would be scared my crafts would disappoint someone. What to do?!

pmpknpunk, don't worry about it!   Out of all the swaps I've done the only time I've ever been disappointed is when someone flaked.   I used to worry about that as well, but people always seem to like what I send.   Even if I don't think it's that great.

i posted about this too on another board - being afraid that your stuff won't compare to what others make.  the general opinion though is that everyone will be happy with the effort you put into things.  and usually everyone does much better than what they give themselves credit for.  i just did my first swap and i'm worried that my partner won't like her stuff, but everyone understands that we're all at different levels of crafting.  and there's no way to get better if you don't just jump in and do it!
