Something Exciting going on this way!

Hello ALL!!!! I'm so excited! I've been thinking and pondering and scheming and I have finally came up with a plan!!!!!!!! WAHOO!!!! *does a little happy dance*
Do you want to know what it is? I bet you do!!! Because if I know you guys, YOU ALL LOVE FABRIC almost as much as me, yes I said ALMOST, no I'm not crazy, I just don't know if anyone could possibly love fabric as much as I do. It seems as though since I began my quilting/sewing journey I breathe, eat, and sleep FABRIC! (okay enough with my ramblings and let me get on with the good stuff!)

Who loves Rainbows????? *jumping up and down* I DO I DO!

Who loves KONA cotton????? *jumping up and down and waving frantically* ME ME ME ME!!!!!!
Who loves the look of a quilted project with the colors of the rainbow???? *getting tired of jumping around* Okay if you guys have answered ME ME ME to these questions, then this is the right place for you to be!
Introducing:

Oh yes, that's right I'm hosting my own fabric swap!
Of these beauties!!! (not ALL those colors, but you do get the point right?)

(The pic above is an example of some of the colors that we COULD get! Aren't they GORGEOUS?!?!?!?)This isn't exactly the kind of swap I was talking about, but I need to get my feet wet right? It doesn't seem like it's going to be TOOOOOOO challenging, or time consuming. (which the time part is great right now since I've got a lot going on!)
Let me give you a little info on this swap!
There will be a total of 28 member (including myself), so I have 27 spots open. It will go on a first come, first serve basis. (If I get over 27 entries I will have a couple of people on standby incase life gets in the way of one of the other members and they are not able to complete their obligation)
Signups will start tomorrow (Monday, July 16th). How do you sign up? Well that's a good question... I will start a Flikr group tomorrow (not sure what time I'm hoping before 5pm EST) and I will have a thread there for Signups. The first 27 to sign up with the info needed will be in. This swap is only open to US residents at this time (sorry to everyone else, I'm just getting started and don't want to get too overwhelmed!)
Once I have all the members I will then assign colors based on the rainbow.
You will then have until August 20th to have your charm packs cut up and mailed to me!
All details will be posted in the group!
I wish I could say add my button to your blog, but I dunno about all that HTML stuff! BUUUUT, what I'm going to do is put it on my sidebar and link to this post and you guys are MORE THAN WELCOME to do the same!
If all goes well, I might be doing this again, and again.
Hopefully this will help me get to know some of my readers better and also I would LOVE for all the newbies like me to join up with this! We will have so much fun!!!!!
If I get through this without any problems I'm looking into starting a swap of some sort of handmade goods (like pillow covers, pot holders, wall hangings, pouches, etc) , I would LOVE to do some personal swaps (if anyone is interested email me!!!)  If any of you all would be interested in participating in that kind of swap please let me know, you can either leave it in the comments or email me  (craftnursequilt(at)gmail(dot)com)
I hope y'all are as excited as me and that y'all will be waiting on the post tomorrow with the link to the Flikr group to come and sign up! (I will make a seperate post for this and I will probably edit this post with the link as well!)
**Fingers crossed all goes well**
~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!!!!!~
