One year ago today I launched MMSA and announced the first two swaps.
I had no idea what a wonderful community would spring from this, and how active a group this would become.
I'm an avid list keeper, and I thought you might be interested in some of the stats from this first year.
Number of swaps: 41 (6 are still open)
Total number of pieces of art swapped so far: 1263
Number of people who have participated: 103
Number of different states we live in: 33
Number of countries (outside the US): 6
Most popular swap: Pink postcards, with 41 swappers and 108 pieces of art

I'm so thankful to you all - for the notes and emails you send me, for the little extras you tuck inside your envelopes, and especially for spreading the joy of art through the mail, both formally and informally.
Here's to more great swaps in the year ahead!
