(Can you think of a better name for the swap??? I tried but couldn't!! Or should I just leave it??)

This is my first hosted swap! Hope you will enjoy this one.


You will be assigned 1 partner, to whom you will send an envelope with a minimum of 6 items. The items have to be a selection of items that REPRESENT YOUR PARTNERS HOBBIES. For example, if your partner like sewing, cooking and painting, you could send him fabrics, receipes, and maybe some brushes or a set of water colors. The items must reflect your partner hobbies, that is why a well filled profile is EXTREMLEY important. The items you put in the parcel are senders choice, but must be based on the receiver's profile. You should take your time in reading your partner's profile and getting to know that person well. See what they like to read, to watch, to listen to, to talk about, to do in their spare time. REALLY GET TO KNOW THE PARTNER.

This is all about making your PARTNER happy, supporting their interests and making them feel loved.

I made this swap because I know how good it feels receiving something that someone made JUST FOR YOU, thinking about YOU and making YOU pleased, happy, and saticfied.


Tips and Some Information:

  • Please reinforce your envelope with tape at the seams.

  • Only 4.8 or higher rating OR unrated users with filled profiles (extremely important swap).

  • No recent no-sends or unexplained low ratings allowed!!

  • This is an international swap, so take your time before rating, it might take some time for the parcel to arrive.

  • NO FLAKES ALLOWED. I will angel if needed, hopefully not. This is about making a person in the world feel good. Flaking in this swap would be a very mean thing to do, as in general it is.

  • Newbies: To fill out your profile, go to Profile > Edit Profile > Personal. Write as much as you can about yourself, to make it easier for your partner.

"The items you put in the parcel are senders choice, but must be based on the receiver's profile."

This does not make sense. Sender's choice means that it should not be profile based... it can't be both sender's choice and profile based. From the rest of the description it sounds like you want us to send things that are profile based, so you probably want to change it where you wrote "sender's choice"

@charophyte i meant that the items specifically are senders choice, that is if your partner likes to paint you choose what item to send that is RELATED to that hobby. is it more clear?

Can I send a postcard with horses if my partner likes to ride horse? Or does it have to be an item that us used in that, like a scarf that she would wear while riding?
