The matches have gone out!

And I hope you’ll all have fun finding out about each other while cocoa swapping!

I’m reading everyone’s questionnaires and it’s fun to see the similarities along with the differences.

I’m not much of a blogger, but I really do hope we can have some fun while swapping.

Matches go out in a day or so!

This is a very small swap!  I need to hear from two more people if they want to participate, and then I can send you your matches.

The most important thing is to have fun!
