No matter what we profess to limit our reading to, we always have a few love stories going. They may be Danille Steel steamers, Janet Evanovich red-hot screwball comedies, or even one of the never-ending supply of Hallequin bodice-rippers, but we've always got one hanging around. (By the way, I heartily recommend Janet's "Plum Lovin'," a terrific Valentine, sort of, story.) Thoughts of the upcoming heartday lead me to suggest we exchange a "heartfelt" bookmark exchange. We'll make two bookmarks for two partners, in anyway you like. No homecrafted item will be refused! As long as it's made with lov-oops, I mean made with like. After all, we hardly know each other!

Hi, thank You for the personal invite either. Unfortunelly I can't join it, not this time :( If I could just make my day a little bit longer... ;)

Karen will there be an easter bookmark swap ? Or maybe a handamde cards swap ? It would be great ;) As CelestialFreak said "One can never have too many bookmarkers". Yeah, I totally agree with that ! ;)

Policia--These can be handmade, and you can do any kind of handcraft. I can't imagine anything you would make that wouldn't work. But sure, later in the spring, or in early summer, I'll host a "Handcrafted" swap with no other restriction. (I like the phrase "handcrafted" better than "handmade" and waaaaaaaaaaaaay better than "homemade." Too many people equate "homemade" with "cheap." How foolish of them. By the way, for some of us, it wouldn't matter how long the day was, we'd still try to squeeze more in. I once had a "nurses calendar" that included an extra hour in each day, and extra day ("Nurseday") in each week, and an extra month in each year. It didn't help. Karen

Hmmm. Easter. I missed that comment before. I'll stick one in, and see what happens. Not everyone celebrates Easter, so I'll have to check what other holidays are around that time, and we'll have to post comments on which holiday we celebrate. Sound good? Karen

Did partners get assigned yet??

Please have patients about partners...Karen may not be feeling well:(

Thanks, Caresalot-I did, in fact, have another seizure! I am going to assign them now. These seizures are getting to be a real pain. I had gone quite a while wihtout one, and now they seem to be starting again. (Deep sigh.) Karen

I believe I have managed to set up a flickr.com group for this and other swaps I am hosting. My screen name is karenvan252541 (tedious explanation) and the group is called Swap-bot bookmarks. The forums are set up by the name of the swap, and there are just a few rules. Only first names or swap-bot ids are acceptable. You may post bookmarks you have received at any time. You may not post bookmarks you are sending until one week after you sent them. There are also forums for ideas, for sources, for books you arer reading and recommend, or don't, and for bookmarks you may have made or received that are not related to these swaps. I truly hope you will take advantage of this flickr group. Thank you!! Karen
