Details of swap:
Your mission will be to find something you have in common with your partner and craft 2 small items and 1 medium item -or- 2 medium items that apply to your commonality. Supplies are ok, too, as long as at least ONE item is crafted. Give your partner as much information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing! You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to “meet” new people and make some new crafty friends. Please post in the thread at least once per week, and when you post your pics, make sure to tell us what you and your partner had in common!
