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 to. There is no minimum or maximum number of items to send, just make sure your envelope is stuffed full. The items you send are SENDER'S CHOICE. 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, or loose memo or post it scraps, 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




Scrapbook papers, chipboard, etc ephemera


game pieces

altered art supplies


recipes/recipe cards

old photographs

small books

handmade items

craft supplies

teas/coffee/drink mixes

fabric scraps, sewing items

ribbons, yarns

rubber stamps or stamped images



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 that you can use.

USA Only. No recent unexplained low ratings.

How big is the envelope to be?

wolfeagle 05/18/2012 #

All that is required is the #10 envelope size of 4 x 9 inches. Many people do send in a larger envelope.

Ok, this is my very first swap and I want to make sure I do it correctly. Please tell me if I just pick someone off the list or do you assign someone for me to send to?

lostinavalon 05/23/2012 #

mzinda: the site automatically picks partners for us. Once the swap is over, you'll see a link that tells you who to send to and gives you the address. :)

lostinavalon: Sorry to seem so dim, do you mean that once the last day to sign up ends (May 31) then I will see the link on my account? I just want to make sure I do this correctly and being a newbie I am nervous. Thanks for helping me.

Yes. On June 1 you can click on this swap and it will give you a variety of choices-- one choice will be "See the partner you send to." Click on that and your partner's name and address will show up. If you want to see their profile click on their profile name next to their real name.

The new user and FAQs are must reads for any new swappers. To find them, just click on the help section on the right top side of the page. It is really worth it.

My long stuffed envelopes with "goodies" are taped up, with postage, ready with labels of names & addresses of my swap mates. Waiting for the checkered flag to drop.

wolfeagle 07/11/2012 #

We ended up with 4 flakes. UGH! And, as of today I have not arranged any angels because the flakes have not been rated. I'm very sorry but I will not set up angels for people who do not rate. I'm archiving this swap, so if you need anything contact me by PM.
