I’m participating in a blind swap which is always challenging. On one hand you don’t want to give the person exactly what they have asked for because that’s not really that fun but on the other you want them to like what you make them.
The smart and recommended course of action is to post in progress photos (this is also generally appreciated by swap hosts as they like continuous participation). But when you do so and your partner doesn’t comment…. well that’s tricky. My partner said she liked some of things in the picture in her original questionnaire and nothing was listed as something she hated…. I’m thinking I’ll just keep going and see if she comments on my next in progress photo and if she doesn’t then I might switch gears. I realize she could have overlooked the photo or something innocuous like that but I also know that sometimes if there is a photo in the group I really don’t like then I just won’t comment and hope that it isn’t destined for me. Oh me oh my….
