    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. Happy

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