WE WANT YOUR INPUT, VALUE YOUR PARTICIPATION:

How many organized group swaps would you like to have on this blog site each month (not counting December):  one, two, three, or four?  
There are different views such as "Too many swaps make it hard to participate in all of them," or, "Having more swaps gives me more themes/techniques to pick and choose from..."  I would like to hear from you.  
Please post a comment at the bottom of this message.  Your feedback will help me as I begin planning for 2017.  
Also, there are opportunities for experienced 
guest-hosts to facilitate an organized group swap
in the next six months.

  1. Two or three swaps per month feels right, depending on how many swap hosts are available. I think that's the other question - how many swaps per year for the hosts. For me it would be 2-3 swaps per year to host.

  2. "TOO MANY SWAPS MAKE IT HARD...." PERFECTLY DESCRIBES HOW I FEEL. TWO PER MONTH SEEMS LIKE A GOOD NUMBER.

  3. I think I would like two each month. For some reason, a theme every week seems to stress me out. Go figure.

  4. I like the idea of having more swaps to choose from...even if it's two a month. Like you said, sometimes a theme or a technique "speaks" to you and sometimes it doesn't. So that way you'd have a choice. Thanks to all who make this site possible!

  5. I'd like to see swaps every two weeks on a consistent basis. Every week seems like too much, but going longer than two weeks without a swap breaks the momentum and diminishes interest in the group. Thanks for asking.

  6. I love seeing lots of possibilities, and usually only make time and space for the ones that really speak to me. Yet I just love seeing others' intepretations of all the themes.
    AND---I realize that more is more work for those hosting, so huge thanks and kudos for anyone ever taking this on, and to you, Honi, for stepping into this role with such great ideas and energy!

  7. Because interests vary so much, I'd like to see 3 or 4 swaps a month. When I've been in the group longer, I'd love to help out by hosting.

  8. I love the variety offered and the ability to pick and choose. They are truly helping me think outside the box trying to create some small art. So I would love to see more but do understand that it is a lot of work for those hosting.

  9. Hi Everyone, Most of the people who responded to my question prefer two or three swaps per month. (You will notice that some months may have more, such as January and February, whereas December will have very few listings, assuming that many people will be busy with holiday preparations.) I hope no one will feel over-whelmed by more swap listings... Participation in any of the swaps is always optional. Thank you for your responses. Honi
