This idea came to me while glancing around S-B.
I came across this swap hosted by Paige1900 and thought to put my own spin on it.

So! ~ We will make a crossword puzzle.

You can design the crossword puzzle anyway you want.

You'll think up words.

You'll also have to think up clues.

You can hand-write all this, or, print it out.

I'd say the minimum lines, down & across, would be seven.

Max? It's up to you.

On a separate sheet, include the answers.

Senders choice on words - altho - Nothing x-rated, please.

You can mail it folded, in a regular size envelope - No need to send it un-folded, in an oversized envie.. if you don't want to.

This is just something to do, like, while you're on the phone, waiting for the company to get to you, when there's a 20,000 other callers ahead of you.

This is my first attempt - So - understand this is going to be very elementary looking, on my part.

This is all meant to be fun - No pressure - No stress or super perfection is needed - Just do your best. Have fun.

This is great! Something new to swap!

As a little tip using THIS online crossword puzzle generator is super duper easy. Just make sure to "click" "YES" on "Remove spaces in words".

Other than that you don't have to sign up or log into anything at all. Just go to the bottom of that page and add your answers and clues. It will format everything for you. I really had fun with it. : )

Also you may want to put Yes for Two page PDF output so that the puzzle and answers can be on 2 separate pages

Good idea @LauraAust !

slamophile 06/ 5/2014 #

Yay'! ~ Glad you like the idea, @AliCrafter .

slamophile 06/ 5/2014 #

Cool! ~ Thanks very much @Paige1900 . But, if people want to draw it all by hand - Go for it ! That's part of the fun, too. But, this generator is great. Thanks.

slamophile 06/ 5/2014 #

.. Right... @moonlightlaura
Yes, answers on separate piece of paper.

slamophile 06/ 5/2014 #

Yay! ~ Great going, @MiniQuilt ... I haven't yet made mine -- I'm sorta hesitant -- I don't know if I should draw it out, or, use the generator @Paige1900 talked about. ... Hmmm.. :-) Plus, I've got to think of words! Oh.. this is going to be fun.

Glad you all are interested in this - Sounds like you're already having fun! Thanks all, for joining.
