    lets face it we are all a bit of a geek/nerd. lets let it all out and share this with others.

    This is a vet only swap.
    post your
    -name,
    - location,
    - ship internationally?
    -and a few of the things that make you the geek/nerd you are
    (try to pick your top 3-5)

    i will assign partners based on similar interests on march 15th.

    You will need to send 3 things. At least 2 of them need to be homemade and one of the three need to be themed off of your similar interest, so comunicate with your partner and choose one.

    hope to see lots of swaps and lots of fun, and may the force be with you :P

    I like Warehouse 13, history books, the DOOM and DOOM II games, Quake/Quake 2/Quake 3 Arena, the Soul Calibur and Tekken games, Stargate SG-1, Battlestar Galactica, chemistry and history jokes (and Schroedinger's cat jokes which have a genre all their own), and I like biology, geology and earth science. Also, I currently play Guild Wars 2. :)

    I messaged my partner early yesterday and still haven't gotten a message back from her so I don't want to start crafting until I know she's going to actually participate =/
  23. Posted
    Has she done swaps before - it looks like she's new as she's only made one forum post and that was the one signing up.
  24. Posted
    if you dont hear anything let me know and we can work something out, sorry about that.
  25. Posted
    I don't think so, Kat.

    I'm okay if you want to drop both of us out of the swap. It's been almost a week and still nothing.

    I just messaged Monika about this, and wanted to see if it was okay with you guys. I am sending a package her way for the crafty colors swap anyway. So I was wondering if I could swap with her too so she has a partner. She is domestic shipping and we have things on our list in common. This is if she would like to and in the event that she doesn't hear from her original partner. :)

    Are you still okay swapping with me too? I hope so.
