why did I look at that list?

I just signed up for ANOTHER swap on Craftster: Ancient Cultures Swap

I have an addiction, don't I? This is developing into a real "problem". Well, at least I haven't signed up for two at once yet. And, the One Skein secret pal swap doesn't even count, since all I have to do is buy and ship yarn... and make ONE thing.

I hope I get a partner who likes jewelry, I've been in such a jewelry mood lately... Ohhh, now I must MAKE A BUTTON!! Mwahahahaha.
