Anthony, way to start us out!

Boris, what are you doing way over here? I would have liked to go with the lamp theme but Kinny often participates in the Swaps and he's not allowed to play with electricity or fire

We have one more issue to resolve. Traditionally Swaps are done by pairing the participants and then swapping with your partner (hence the name "Swap" ) There was talk of doing a more random style of swap where you know who you send to but you don't know what you are getting until it comes in the mail. Sounds like fun, any opinions?

Well, I'm a fan of the swaps where you don't know who has your name until the box arrives. This is the way the tiki mug swaps have been done for years. It adds an element of surprise.

Random swap seems cool to me.

This would be my third, and of the two I did participate in and the one I didn't it seemed like everyone got their pieces. So I don't see why random would be any different.

If someone wasn't going to send the piece would it really matter if it was random or not? They just wouldn't send it.

This is a great crowd, I don't think that's really a concern.

Anthony, lookin' good.

Well, random swap it is then, sounds like a fun twist. Liz ran the Mug Swap for years, I will get detains from her. As I understand, I will draw the names in a "circular" fashion - A sends to B, B sends to C, ... Z send to A but I only tell you who to send to. You notify me when you have mailed your package and I notify the recipient that it is coming.

I haven't started working on anything yet but I did eat some fish tacos the other day for "inspiration"

Nope, not too late SF. You just have to have your piece finished by the Jan 31st deadline

Jason! Kinny is tied up working on a big upcoming show. He hopes to be able to make something at the end but no promises
Tabu, can't wait to see what you're coming up with.

Hey mike!

I'm in!!! My first swap was so much fun I just have to jump in again. The subject has me a bit stumped but I'll think on it. This is just what I need to get my creative @$$ in gear.

Thanks for organizing it again.

What if they're molded pieces that we create specifically for this? That are from an original mold (created by the participant).

Examples:
Tiles, resin lamp, mug, et cetera.
