    It just occurred to me that I can get a good idea of what my Secret Pal will like, by reading her posts, looking at her pictures. OMG I got a really talented quilter this month. Look up your "swappee"!

    I do this every time. I think it helps me decide what sort of things they might like.

    You should see me try to decide on the perfect paint to use in the house. :lol: My husband just sits back and waits for the data (and samples) to settle. He's just happy when I decide not to analyze thing down to the basic elemental components (I've been paid to do that for people, it might take me a couple weeks but I do love a challenge.)

    Now if I could only find the right side of my brain to be creative and artistic I'd be happy.

    I do that also. If it's not secret, I PM them and ask them to tell me their likes/dislikes, hobbies, pets, etc. Sometimes they don't have much info in their profile.

    Thanks Dotty......... Sadly I admit I wouldn't have thought of that. Your five months of contemplation have benefited others enormously.
