    I just wanted everyone to know that I have to take a break from swaps for a while. I love doing them, but I'm just not getting anything else done when I'm feeling like it.

    Didn't want any of you awesome hostesses to think I had a problem with anyone - just have to back off for a little while.

    Same here. I'm in about 4 I need to finish up, and then I out...at least for awhile. I DO appreciate the swaps I've been in...I've learned so much from all of you. But I finally figured out I am getting 'addicted'. I make a lot of items, but never get around to scrapping ANYTHING. And at the cost of postage now, I can't afford to swap for things I'm not using.

    That is exactly how I feel. I only make a little money and it has all gone for postage - That's not too smart of me. Especially when you are not sure if you will ever use some of the things you get. And, not becuase they aren't good, but swaps don't work out where you can ask for things you need and know you would use.

    It has been theraputic for me though and I do appreciate that, and love participating with all of these great hostesses and scrappers. Hope I can do some more later on.

    I encourage those of you who are taking a break from swapping to join a Bongo (or Bingo) game. It's FREE, FUN, you get to know your fellow board members and you could WIN. Bongo Game 6 is currently being played in a PM, so be on the lookout for Game 7, because I would love to keep hosting this game so long as the players don't mind me being hostess.

    Prior to a game starting, I will post a list of 50 words on a thread in the GAMES section, you select 20 words and PM them to me. I keep a master list of everyone's selection so I can keep track of everyone too.

    Once we start the game in a PM, I draw 3 or 4 names each day. First person to get all 20 of their words WINS.

    Prize is either a $5.00 SBing related item OR I will make something of your choice (provided I can make it) and send it to the WINNER.

    Lynn, everyone needs a break now and then and the swaps can become overwhelming. It was nice of you to let everyone know. But, we'll still look forward to seeing you on the board.
