i agree about a simple swap. everyone likes goodies i'm sure, but this may not actually be the place for them. i'll send a little something once in awhile, but i'm usually so happy to be finished on time, and packing it and getting it mailed, that i forget to add a little something. i never expect anything extra, and i'm perfectly happy with that, too. i do like the little notes people often enclose. i am trying to follow that example! extras do add up and i think most of us are on a fixed or limited budget and feeling the stress of having to keep up with the joneses takes away from the fun of the swap. no one asked, but that's my opinion, and it's worth every cent you paid for it, too!!
