let's get this party started!

it's official, swap sign ups are now closed. thanks for the huge & amazing response. when i sent out the invite, i never imagined i would have so many people "rsvp"! i still can't believe we have over 300 participants! holy cow! i definitely didn't expect this kind of response... i'm so grateful for everyone posting about it & telling their friends. by now, if you've signed up, you should have received a response to your RSVP. if you haven't yet, leave a comment on this post & we'll get something worked out. (technology, such as email, doesn't always work as perfect as we would like.) now, i have to do the hard part, and match everyone up with partners. actually, it really shouldn't be that hard, except that personally, I want to swap with EVERYONE! anyway, i'll probably do something fair, like draw names out of a hat , throw darts, or something. just be looking for an email from me with your partners info. in the mean time, start thinking about what you want to send. if you're looking for a little inspiration, check out these links from flickr of past swaps...

last year's favorite things swap
general swap packages
free people travel swap

i'm looking forward to getting my swap on. what about you?

I loved getting good mail from you yesterday. It lifted my spirits and reminded me I could do what I am trying to do. It was just like a little hug and pat on the back from a trusted friend. THANKS! You're a sweetheart to think of me!

Be sure to check your spam folders if you haven't gotten my emails yet... they might be hiding from you!
