Description:

Easy swap. Newbies with filled out Profiles encouraged. I understand we all have to start somewhere and this is a great swap to do that. Send a stuffed envelope with assorted goodies to one partner. Please send, at least a long business size envelope that measures approximately 4 x 9 inches, however you can certainly choose to go bigger if you want. There is no minimum or maximum number of items to send, just make sure your envelope is stuffed full. The items you send are senders choice, however it is always nice to look at your partners profile and try to send items they can use. This is not a Profile swap, so please do not spend a lot of money shopping for profile surprises. This is more for you to send items that you have on hand, that are in good usable condition. This does not mean you can send your trash, send only items in good, usable condition. Please do not send items like, your used candy wrappers, or written on apt. card, etc. Do send items from the list below. If you are unsure of items, you can ask me. Examples Include (but are not limited to )

Post cards,

Greeting Cards

Ribbons

Bookmarks

Buttons

Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera

beads,charms

stickers

recipes/recipe cards

old photographs

small books

handmade items

craft supplies

teas/coffee/drink mixes

fabric scraps, sewing items

rubber stamps

movies/dvd's/cds

seeds

Or anything else you want to share that is in good, usable condition.

PLEASE REINFORCE your envelope with tape at the seams or use a larger envelope, if you think there is a chance it will explode during mailing. You may also choose to put stuff in a baggie in case the envelope tears in transit. This is a USA only swap. Have fun. No recent no sends allowed. Please rate your partner. No FLAKERS ALLOWED. Do Not Flake. I will list all flakers. I reserve the right to ban individuals.

Please do not send scraps of memo paper/notebook/post-it type paper, etc. You may send the whole memo pad or notebook but scraps of note paper does not equal scrapbook papers.

New Swappers- Profile Help: To fill out your profile, go to Profile. Then select Edit Profile. Next select Personal. You will be brought to a screen where you can fill in the sections or add your own information. Things like favorite colors, crafts you do, items you collect, hobbies, likes/dislikes, etc...all help your partner to send you items that you will like or can use.

USA Only

I just have to join this swap because my birthday is in October, I will make this a birthday present for me and wait to open it by Oct. 25th.

wolfeagle 09/18/2011 #

Happy Birthday evieroz!

MrsRemington 09/19/2011 #

Good idea, evieroz! October is my Birthday month as well. Only I'll have to wait until the 16th :)

I'm so excited to be doing this swap! I recently moved and I have so much craft stuff that I don't use and I want to send it to a good home! I know this is senders choice but all I really need are postcards and stationary paper and possibly some holiday themed (any holiday) rubber stamps. Also, if you want some stuff I would love to set up a private swap with anyone interested!

wolfeagle 09/20/2011 #

@justined0414 You can let people know what kind of things you have to trade.

Happy Birthday to everyone with an upcoming Birthday!

Are you able to angel this swap? I am worried about flakers!

angeliclizard 09/21/2011 #

I've been in this swap before and if someone flakes wolfeagle asks if anyone will volunteer to be an angel, I angeled for someone in a previous swap. There are so many people in this swap, someone will take care of the people who were flaked on.

wolfeagle 09/21/2011 #

Thank you @angeliclizard Yes, I love our sweet angels! Because even though I check profiles, ban lots of people, and help to find angels once an appropriate rating has been left, some people do flake. I also list their name on my profile page.
I really hate it when people flake, espcially since this is an easy swap that is meant to be fun and low cost. Unfortunately though, being flaked on is a possibility when you do any swap. So, if you have any problems regarding this swap, please let me know....it's the only way I can help. :)

Marti 09/21/2011 #

On the list you have listed from postcards to seeds... are all those items appropriate? =)

wolfeagle 09/21/2011 #

Yes, as well as many more things. :)

Iluvdolls 09/21/2011 #

I can't wait for this swap!

Margothecat 09/22/2011 #

@wolfeagle - are you a member of the Swap Bot Flakers group? They list flakers and problematic swappers, and it is good to check it out before assigning partners. When I do a public swap I always check the Swap Bot Flakers group first.

wolfeagle 09/22/2011 #

No, that's not a group I wish to belong to but thank you for the information. :)

Iluvdolls 09/23/2011 #

Does anyone want some bridal shower cards, 10 blank on the inside w/ 10 envies, would trade for 5 postcards..:)

Iluvdolls 09/23/2011 #

and I also have 7 baby shower hallmark cards with envies for swap :)

wolfeagle 09/23/2011 #

Hi Iluvdolls...you may find better luck posting your trade in the public forums under trades. :)

wolfeagle 09/23/2011 #

I've started reviewing profiles and banning people. I always give a reason to why someone is dropped but if you get dropped and don't understand why just PM me. Also if you "fix", whatver need fixed, PM me and let me know.

wtriker 09/23/2011 #

First I want to apologize - I'm sorry to leave this here, rather than in a PM,!! (I'm brand new to the site! yay!) And honestly can't figure out where or how to send a message (highly embarrassed...) sigh. So, I want to make sure I'm on top of things for my first swap-bot swap! I'm old hand at swaps, just not ones through a site like this.

Will I get a msg from you with my partners info? Thanks for the help! M

wolfeagle 09/23/2011 #

Hi @wtriker No worries. We were all new at some point. First off, there is a Help section on the top right side. You should check it out as there is a bunch of newbie information and faqs that are a MUST for anyone new to this site. Swappers do get emails when partners are assigned but you can also find it by going to the swap you are in, and then clicking the see who I send to box or rate my partner box. I will also send out a group email once I assign partners for this swap. One way to send a private message to me or anyone else is to click on their username, mine is @wolfeagle and then once you are on their profile page, click the send a message button that is there for our convenience. As far as this particular swap, unfortunately I will drop you from the swap because your profile page is not filled out enough. You can take a look at some other people profiles to get a sense of what is expected and then follow the directions above in the swap description to edit your profile. If you can edit it before the swap starts you may be able to stay in it. I'm also leaving this here, instead of a private message and you dont yet know how to check your messages. :) feel to PM with any or questions about this swap.

Whiskers 09/24/2011 #

You always have the best swaps. I'll be an angel if you need one. Hugs

wolfeagle 09/25/2011 #

Thanks @Whiskers Hopefully we will not need any!

cheeky475 09/25/2011 #

Hi wolfeagle I'm really new here and just joined your swap. I was wondering how I find out who my partner is.

wolfeagle 09/25/2011 #

Hi cheeky...you will get an email. First read the FAQs/Help section and fill in your profile. Welcome to swap-bot

Dramagymnast4eva 09/25/2011 #

yay! my birthday is the day after the send by date!

mrodriguez22 09/25/2011 #

Hi!! I use to do snail mail swaps 12 years ago. This was before all the social media sites!! Now that I am a well settled mom, I have decided to get back into doing some things that I enjoy and snail mail is one of them! I am excited to do this agian.

Rosecampion 09/26/2011 #

I can't wait for partners to be assigned! I just did the international big stuffed envie swap and it was my favorite swap so far on swap-bot. I hope this one will be just as fun to send.

wolfeagle 09/26/2011 #

Partners have been assigned. Have fun.

mrodriguez22 09/26/2011 #

I am so excited!!!!!!! I want to go back to the post office right now!!

mrodriguez22 09/27/2011 #

My daughter and I went out yesterday after she got home from school. I did came to this swap so I could make new friends. Last night we worked on this swap together and today as we left for school she saw the package and said, "Mom, why are you doing swaps?" I told her because I wanted to make friends and I enjoy going to the mail box to get my package. Then she said, " Do you think they have kid swap?" I told her I think they did but the parents had to do it for them, but I would see. She then said, " Mom, I'd like to help with your next one. When is it going to be?" MY heart melted! Oh, she also said I needed to warn my swapper to open with care bc there was enough tape on it to wrap 20 gifts! So, swapper when you see a package from MO please open with care! I can't wait to see how this swap unfolds. Thanks for welcoming a newbie!!

Cheers

Melissa :)

juliahope 09/28/2011 #

Hi!

If I am your swap partner, do me a favor and don't send out the package yet (if you haven't already). My mailing address is incorrect and since my sister also is a member of swap-bot so it's taking me a little longer to be able to register my home address (I have to get permission from one of the admins first). If you have already mailed the package out, don't worry about it because I'm trying to figure out something with the mail room where I lived previously, so I'm sure I'll end up receiving it somehow. Also, if you'd like, feel free to message me so I can give you the correct address. I greatly apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks so much! Julia

cheeky475 09/28/2011 #

Hi wolfeagle It's me again an I can't figure out how to find my parters(so embarrassed!) Thank you so much and I can't wait to send my package!

wolfeagle 09/28/2011 #

@cheeky ..sending you a PM. Also check your email. :)

wolfeagle 09/30/2011 #

@juliahope ...also PM your partner the correct address. :)
