Send 1 partner one Halloween card, store bought or handmade. Include a flat surprise, Halloween or profile based. Possible flat treasures could be, but are not limited to . . . an ATC, a blank postcard handmade or store bought, a drawing done by you, a 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 piece of fabric (charm square), a poem, a special handmade/hand stamped note card . . . You decide. Please send quality swaps you would like to receive and try to write a short pleasant note in the card. It really takes so little time. Usual Swap-bot protocol should be followed. However, no profile, no participation. I will angel if need be, but I'm sure there will be no need for that. Happy swapping!

This is the 42nd swap I have hosted after counting all my group and private swaps I've hosted since joining in December 2009. I just thought that was cool to figure out.

Totally cool! You do an awesome job.

Hey there everyone! We have only 6 days left for folks to join our swap, but as it stands at 34 participants we have a great group of swappers. Thanks for joining in on this bit of seasonal fun. May all your swapping dreams come true. Cheers, Le Papillon Vert

When I run swaps they are usually international. This swap has three people from the UK, one from Finland, one from Poland and one from Mexico. There was a fair amount of lead time till sign-up ended, and two weeks after till the final mailing date. This should have given folks plenty of time to find their Halloween card and then to read profiles and mail the swap. However, swapping is fun. It is not an I-got-ya moment. So if you do get a partner from a country other than the US and Canada. Please be kind and gentle with your rating due to international postal systems. This is a fun and friendly hobby. Smiles and Hugs LPV

Are we sending a card for our partners to use or we're sending a card signed by us to our partner?

lepapillonvert 10/ 2/2012 #

We are sending a card signed by us and a note in it if possible. It is a card to your partner. If you want to make them another handmade card as the extra surprise that is fine.

:) little package is in the mail!

lepapillonvert 10/12/2012 #

Thanks blackkiwi!

Now if you are like me and phobic about writing in a really neat card that you made, that you think your partner might enjoy re-sending. Then you can write your note and greeting on a large post-it and place it in the card. However, you still need to enclose your little surprise. Cheers, LPV

Okay, so I was cleaning up my craft room just now and came across the little letter I wrote for my partner sitting on my desk. Obviously it didn't make it into the card that I sent out yesterday lol I will get it in the mail asap. So if you are my partner, you will be getting 2 pieces of mail from me. My apologies for overlooking that :)

October 16th and 5 unsent swaps out of 89. I sure hope these aren't Flaky Folks. If they do not send their swap and mark sent by the 20th they will be in grave danger of being band in future swaps that I host.

lepapillonvert 10/25/2012 #

Well, only one flake out of 89 is excellent. Cdeya319 I will be the angel for your swap as your partner @thelittlebird removed her profile from Swap-bot and therefore it appears that she will not be sending your swap. I mailed this out to you on October 24th. I hope you enjoy what I angeled you. Please let me know when you get it. Sincerely, lepapillonvert

Also had to angel @ladybehemot because @AmyRene didn't send her swap - Mail this angel on November 27, 2012.
