So what are you waiting for?! GET BUSY!!! Get out there and join a SWAP or play a game of BINGO on a forum! It's FREE & you could win some fantastic goodies! Or if you are scared you won't get what you, in a swap, then find something you do like and ask that dealer if she will do a swap for it!! There is probably something you make that she would like to have too!
