    I just finished swapping out the cards. They will be in the mail tomorrow. I tried to give people cards that they had commented upon. It wasn't always possible, but hopefully nobody will be too disappointed. The biggest challenge was not giving people cards that looked like the ones they had made for the swap. I figured nobody really wanted to trade Stonehenge for Stonehenge or pyramids for pyramids. I thought all of the cards were good and I wanted to keep them all for myself! After being active here almost 9 years, this was my first swap and it was a learning experience for me: mostly positive. If anybody hasn't tried hosting a swap, it isn't all that hard and I would encourage anybody to give it a try.

    Love that "mostly positive". You've been an awesome host, and I hope you do more swaps.

    Ha, ha...HHC. I hope that nobody thought that the "mostly positive" meant that I had had some bad experiences with the players. Everybody was overwhelmingly encouraging and totally positive. What wasn't positive was when I was swapping out cards. And that was a learning experience. I found out I had given somebody two pyramids, another time a player got two cards from the same artist, and when I was recording whose cards went to whom, I got a little confused. But all of those problems were resolved, and I am pretty sure everybody should be happy with the cards.

    I really am looking forward to hosting another swap. It may have to be a quick one so that it is done before I go on a big trip - otherwise I will be out of communication for almost two weeks. You know me..."always going"!

    I really appreciate all of the enthusiasm everybody had for this swap and all of the support you gave me. As much as I would like to do another swap immediately, travel plans are coming up, so I won't be able to host another swap until early next year. I will let you know when that happens.
