Thanks, thanks and thanks again! I've been short on self-esteem for some time now -- which is a national sport around these parts really -- and your acknowledgement really means a lot even if I tend to act otherwise. Just remember that all this has been super fun for me too -- in fact even more fun than the previous swap which was arranged by another member.
Rog, that's most of the fun really. I just love the way people have been so dedicated to their projects and produced their best in the end. And from what I've read from private messages, it's not just beginners who were nervous about their projects. Even the more advanced whipmakers were just that too.
All participants are to thank here. This is not something I could have done on my own, only one of the whips came from my hands. I may have started it, but every single one of you made it happen and don't you forget that. I'm seriously looking forward to both making and receiving my third Whip Swap present. And remember that if (read: when) we do this long enough, one or more of us will receive more than one whip from one participant, and if there's anything cool in the world, it's that little fact. Just go and learn from what you made and received and start planning your next one already. There will be more of this, no question about it. Feel free to go nuts
