BTW, I looked up past post of my mama for ideas and she's CDing and this is her first so I'm sending some CD stuff.
Noooooo, LOL, someone ELSE will have to run the next 2 swaps & match people up how they want, LOL, I'm done!

Thanks for the kind words mamas, glad you are enjoying it!

Yeah, I appreciate that I got lots of hints from my person too - and I STILL am not sure what I'm getting her!

I believe NEXT we are doing the bead swap that the lovely counterGOPI is running...that's sure to be a hit! Looking fwd. to it!

Wait a sec... I never EVER EVER meant to say you weren't doing a good enough job or that I felt *I* could do better. That was never my intention. It's not me to come across that way. I just said that I'm used to doing the ISO matched type swaps and with my preggo brain I didn't want to try and do a free for all, especially for someone I didn't know well. I lose all sense of creativity when I'm pregnant (especially now) so I didn't want to participate in something I hadn't done before.
I know that in cyber space it's easy to read into what someone is saying and put a whole different spin on it so I wanted to make sure that everyone knows I wasn't trying to start anything. I thought I was pretty clear about it from the start but if not, sorry.

I am at a loss. What do you get someone who you don't know at all?

Any ideas? I have searched hyenacart and that etsy site someone posted. I don't want to get something they don't like....

TIA!!!

Well, you can search for your exchange person's posts and get a better idea of who they are from there. If you go to their profile, you can look up all their posts, and then scan through for the ones they started or the ones that are longer to get more of an idea about them.
