I figured a UK Round Robin would be easiest for you three; if anything's a problem, let me know and I'll fix it.

Preferences: I like victorian/gothic style jewellery, I'm also really like things with an eye or eyes on them. I also like black cats and sugar skulls. I wear a lot of black, greys and reds, would love a ring (adjustable) or earrings, I dont wear nail polish or hair accessories but I like make up like dark lipstick or eyeshadow.
Sugar! One more project to go before I can sign up for this one!
:o I can't believe you've only got 4 projects and you do so many swaps!
Sign up anyway, I know you're a good swapper
The project amount is mostly to make sure that people who haven't posted any of their work for reference won't make the swap unpleasant for anyone else. I figured that some new rules for this swap might be helpful since there has been a lot of swap drama lately.
YAY!!! Finally an awesome swap happening when I can afford it and have time =D
Name: Rawr.rawr.x (Joss)
Location: South Africa
Ship internationally: Yep!
Preferences/Favorites: (music, imagery, etc): I love all things elegant goth, bats, spiders, wolves, heartagrams (the band HIM's logo), anything with spikes, chokers, lace and lots more. My favourite colours are black, dark purple and blood red.
*edit* Oh I forgot to say I have a current obsession with bird skulls (especially ravens)
Yay Jossie! I was hoping you would be able to join this one Glad to have you aboard!
Plenty of time left for sign-ups.
Awww I hope this keeps going on! I'm just starting the newbie vs vet swap and don't have enough board posts.
I'll be hosting more swaps like this every few months. So don't worry if you can't make this one.
11 more days to sign up.
Bumping this board up incase we get any last minute sign ups! *fingers crossed*
Sure hope we do!
Maybe send an email out to your CO+K friends? Maybe remind Mary!
Would be great if we could get more than 3 people! But if that is the case, maybe a round robin type swap will be good?
Yeah, I'm thinking about Round Robin... or if it's just us 3, we could each make 2 packages to send out. Messaging Mary.
