Huzzah! I voted for this category. Relatively new to the site so I haven’t participated in any swap, but I feel like a winner already.

No promises but I am working on finding us a sponsor that will get involved and offer us a coupon code/discount on supplies.
Wish me luck!

Very different kind of swap, I’m curious how this will turn out, but I’m in.

Another reminder, anyone up for a quick Christmas ornament swap can check in here.

Mixing it up a little brother

The category system will help people narrow it down some so people can get something they can use.

Should be fun!

Texas is the best!
I’m just east of Dallas in Rockwall about 25 Minutes from Plano

Now is it cheating if Airframer picks Category C and I match him up with myself just in case he makes a set of those dividers?
